Na Lotus Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Nanning opens in the capital of the Guangxi Province as the brand’s eighth property in China. Na Lotus Hotel resides in a high-rise landmark building, immersing guests in the heart of the business district.
The contemporary setting merges the rich heritage of the Zhuang Minority Group and showcases their history through beautiful décor, evocative catering and magnificent surroundings.
“We are excited to introduce Nanning to our Global Explorers, allowing them to discover the destination, also known as the Green City and it’s an abundance of lush foliage,” said Anthony Ingham, Global Brand Leader, The Luxury Collection. “As a culturally rich ethnic minority area in Guangxi Province, the destination is a perfect gateway for travelers to experience through the lens of The Luxury Collection.”
Each of the 290 guestrooms, including 26 suites, takes inspiration from the lotus flower, and feature floor-to-ceiling windows offering panoramic views of the city as well as the Yong River and Qingxiu mountain. The hotel’s interiors echo strong elements of the Zhuang culture such as farmlands, symbolizing happiness and prosperity. Na Lotus Hotel also features a 1,100 square meter Ballroom, state-of-the-art fitness center, and an indoor pool overlooking the skyline.
Indigenous and international cuisines are celebrated at Na Lotus Hotel’s four signature dining venues, including Na Lian, a Chinese restaurant offering a journey of flavors with an emphasis on fresh Guangxi and Cantonese cuisines. Sky Lounge, a popular social hub serves exclusive cocktails, wines, and spirits accompanied by distinctive sweet treats. The Clouds features an all-day dining experience showcasing international delights, while Yun Yue, a Thai and Vietnamese fusion restaurant, focuses on signature seafood and meat dishes prepared with local and seasonal produce.
The hotel’s Concierge team creates bespoke experiences with visits to the Yong opera in the ancient Xinhui Academy as well as immersive journeys to the scenic Qingxiu Mountain and Detian Waterfall, the largest transnational waterfall in Asia. Guests can immerse themselves in the destination through the “The Five senses of Nanning,” an experiential package developed by the hotel, and explore the traditional customs of Zhuang culture through Yilingyan, a cave resplendent with rare stone landscapes, as well as the ancient towns Na Lian and Yangmei.
