Hilton has announced the opening of Hilton Sanqingshan Resort in China’s Mount Sanqing National Park.

Hilton Sanqingshan Resort is the first and only internationally-branded resort in Shangrao, offering 372 guest rooms with panoramic views of the Chinese National AAAAA-rated tourist region, the highest ranking available for tourist attractions in China. Owned by Sanqingshan Travel Group and managed by Hilton, the new resort marks Hilton’s debut in Jiangxi Province.

The new property is situated in the heart of the Jiangxi Province, and is served by Shangrao Railway Station, approximately 80 kilometres away, and Nanchang Changbei International Airport, approximately 270 kilometres away.

“The Sanqing mountains, recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2008, are one of China’s premier natural attractions,” said Sean Wooden, vice president, brand management, Asia Pacific, Hilton. “With the opening of Hilton Sanqingshan Resort, we are poised to deliver an exceptional resort experience for guests from China and around the world seeking new destinations for MICE events, family vacations and weekend getaways.”

Hilton Sanqingshan Resort is only 300 meters to the Mount Sanqing National Park ticket office and cable, providing the perfect base for guests to explore the Sanqing mountains. Two of the most famous areas within the national park, the West Coast and Sunshine Coast Scenic Spots, are only six kilometers from the hotel. Hilton Sanqingshan Resort is also within easy reach of nearby attractions including the city of Jingdezhen and Huangshan and Wuyishan mountains.

“With tourism on the rise to Jiangxi Province, it was a natural decision to extend the footprint of our flagship brand to this prime resort location,” said Bruce McKenzie, senior vice president, operations, Greater China & Mongolia, Hilton. “Hilton Sanqingshan Resort is a fine addition to our growing portfolio of more than 80 operating hotels, including 38 Hilton hotels, which are located in top destinations across China.”

A blend of modern design elements and traditional Chinese architecture, Hilton Sanqingshan Resort incorporates Southeast Asian influences with Sanqingshan accents. The 372 guest rooms and suites have French windows that provide unobstructed mountain views, and in-room amenities include 42-55 inch LCD televisions and complimentary standard Wi-Fi access. Guests can unwind in the resort’s heated indoor pool or workout at the 24-hour fitness centre.

For guests looking to indulge in their favourite indoor games, there are designated rooms for table tennis, snooker and chess, a Kid’s corner, karaoke rooms, and a 5D cinema that employs the latest multi-sensory entertainment technology. Hilton Sanqingshan Resort also has a full-service spa with nine treatment rooms, a foot massage centre, and seven VIP massage rooms.

Hilton Sanqingshan Resort offers meeting space spanning 1,600 square meters, including a 750 square-meter pillar-less ballroom and seven multi-function rooms that can be configured for seminars, corporate events and banquets. In addition, the Sky Terrace, which can accommodate up to 120 people, provides a memorable al fresco venue for intimate gatherings and cocktail parties.
