Dubai based Jumeirah Group announced the launch of Jumeirah Nanjing on September 10.

Located on the banks of the city’s Yangzte River, the hotel is situated on the 39-67th floors North Tower within the prestigious International Youth Cultural Centre (IYCC) of the Hexi New District. The striking and iconic architecture was created by the legendary architect Zaha Hadid, whose design took inspiration from a graceful sailing ship, capturing Nanjing’s blend of traditional and cosmopolitan style. Jumeirah Nanjing, which offers 212 rooms and 49 suites as well as range of exceptional dining experiences, is set to inspire and delight both local and international guests.

José Silva, Jumeirah Group Chief Executive Officer, said: “Jumeirah Nanjing is a stunning addition to our portfolio and we are exceedingly proud to be selected as guardians of such a significant property. The International Youth Cultural Centre is an architectural masterpiece and its iconic stature is truly impressive. Jumeirah Nanjing is a remarkable destination which will boost tourism to the city, and represents a significant milestone in achieving our global expansion strategy.”

Inside the hotel, impressive atriums allow for abundant natural light to enter the grand entrance and the spectacular 63rd floor swimming pool. Interiors combine traditional and modern characteristics to create an exclusive environment that celebrates cultural heritage and contemporary innovation.

Art pieces throughout are elegant, modern and refined to showcase Jiangnan’s classic and contemporary features – such as the Yangtze River, Lakeside stone, Kun Opera, Cloud Brocade and ancient Nanjing poetry.

Guests can explore, indulge and enjoy distinctive dining outlets, including a modern Chinese restaurant focusing on Cantonese cuisine and an imaginative seafood bar serving contemporary creations.

Located on level 67, the highest function room in Nanjing creates an unforgettable setting for special occasions. On the 63rd floor, the inviting spa facilities and sky atrium pool provide an ideal hideaway from the vibrant city.

With this strategic addition, Jumeirah will expand its luxury portfolio, which currently extends to 22 luxurious hotels and resorts around the world. The Jumeirah Group will be opening additional properties in the Asia-Pacific region including in China and Bali.
