Hyatt Hotels Corporation announced the opening of Hyatt Centric Lakeside Ningbo, marking the first Hyatt Centric hotel in mainland China.
Located beside Tongxin Lake in Zhenhai’s vibrant International Talent Park, the hotel provides the perfect starting point for adventurous travelers to explore the history and culture of Ningbo and experience an authentic slice of life in this charming port city.
Hyatt Centric Lakeside Ningbo provides guests with a cozy clubhouse setting just steps from the myriad of activities and entertainment around Tongxin Lake, including fitness trails, a botanic garden, and trendy dining and drinking spots. This area also boasts lively nightlife around the lake, including popular hotspots for the university crowd such as the Ningda Night Market located within a 20-minute walk. Guests can also enjoy convenient access to Zhenhai old town and Ningbo’s most popular sights and experiences, including museums, shopping nightlife and famous seafood markets at the Old Bund. In addition, the hotel is a 30-minute drive from some of the region’s most scenic areas where mountains, forests, farms and lakes offer hiking, camping and water activities.
Located adjacent to Zhenhai’s university business district, high-tech zone and the East CBD, Hyatt Centric Lakeside Ningbo is also a great option for business travelers seeking an urban resort stay experience.
“We are thrilled to open the doors to Hyatt Centric Lakeside Ningbo where our passionate, knowledgeable team looks forward to introducing curious travelers to the most memorable and shareworthy experiences our destination has to offer,” said Eric Gong, general manager, Hyatt Centric Lakeside Ningbo.
“Offering an array of facilities, the hotel provides travelers and locals alike a unique lifestyle experience that embraces the peaceful views and vitality of our beautiful lakeside location.”
The hotel’s modern architecture and interior design embrace the scenic surroundings, Ningbo’s traditional craftsmanship and mahjong culture. Wooden shutters reflect the warm, comfortable ambience of a clubhouse. The interiors are animated by reflections of the lake, with wall art created by local illustrators, and a shifting palette of spring, summer, autumn and winter colors in the hotel’s signature restaurant, inspired by Ningbo’s connection to the origins of mahjong.
The 174 guestrooms, which include eight spacious suites, combine upscale comfort with contemporary style and floor-to-ceiling windows offering panoramic lake or city views. All the essentials are delivered within a creative and compact design, thoughtfully furnished with a sofa, bar counter and an array of lifestyle amenities including a 55-inch LCD TV, Bluetooth speakers and a Nespresso coffee machine – everything required to enjoy a relaxing taste of life by the lake.
