eturbonews.com reported that “Aug 28, 2011 With the opening of the Kempinski Hotel Huizhou, Kempinski established its presence in the city and the whole province of Guangdong. The modern five-star hotel beautifully combines the European flair for which Kempinski is known with Chinese culture. Including this latest addition, Kempinski now has eleven properties in China.
“China is an extremely important, thriving market for us,” says Michael Henssler, Kempinski Hotels’ Regional President for China. “In 1992, Kempinski was the first European hotel group to enter China, and until today we are still the only ones. Kempinski has managed to position itself so successfully in this market, that national and international travellers became loyal to the Kempinski brand when travelling. They enjoy the consistently good and personalised service, as well as the high quality standards they have come to expect from us. Until the end of this year, four more openings are expected in Shanghai, Guiyang, Sanya/Haitang Bay and Xiamen; five more are to follow in 2012. Until 2015, Kempinski plans to expand its international portfolio to 121 properties according to its expansion strategy. For China, this means 20 hotels under operations.”
Huizhou is located in the south-east of the Guangdong province, and is one of its biggest coastal cities, with over 260 kilometres of beautiful coastline, eight bays and 140 islands. Huizhou is said to be the fastest growing trade hub in China, and at the same time is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the country.
The hotel is centrally located in the commercial district of Huizhou, Jiangbei District, opposite of the Huizhou Exhibition and Convention Centre. Huizhou Airport is approximately 20 minutes away; Shenzhen is 90 minutes, and Hong Kong and Guangzhou 120 minutes.
The property’s 340 rooms, including the 46 suites, are elegantly furnished and feature all modern cons for business as well as leisure travellers.
A main focus is the culinary offering – a wide range of restaurants, bars and lounges, including the Season’s Restaurant, Paulaner Microbrewery, Dragon Palace with traditional Chinese cuisine and Edo, a Japanese specialty restaurant, will fulfil any gourmet’s wishes. The Lounge and Kempi Deli, with European delicatessen, complete the palette.
Even on the conference and events side the Kempinski Hotel Huizhou is impressive. The hotel’s 15 different sized meeting and ballrooms on 3,000 m2, including the Great China Ballroom with 1,050 m2 floor space, professional catering and state-of-the-art technology ensure that from corporate events to lavish weddings, expectations are not only met, but exceeded.
The spa comprises six treatment rooms, a Jacuzzi, sauna and steam bath for complete relaxation. For those looking for a proper work-out, a gym with modern fitness equipment as well as an indoor and outdoor pool are available.
