European Brand Tivoli Hotels Debuts in China with Opening in Chengdu
Chengdu, China, April 7, 2022 / TRAVELINDEX / Tivoli Hotels and Resorts, a luxury Portuguese-rooted hospitality brand, has announced an important milestone in its expansion strategy throughout Asia with the opening of Tivoli Chengdu at Cultural Heritage Park.
Developed in partnership with Chengdu Qingyang Urban and Rural Construction Development Company Limited, the 201-room luxury property is located in the International Intangible Cultural Heritage Park, in Chengdu. While holidaymakers will enjoy direct access to the park’s purpose-built exhibition halls showcasing world cultures, business travellers will appreciate the proximity of Chengdu Shuangliu Airport located just 19 kilometres away and the hotel’s state-of-the-art meeting facilities.
Chengdu, a thriving cultural and commercial capital of Sichuan Province, has an established travel industry thanks to its pleasant climate, a bevy of historical attractions, excellent food, and a world-renowned breeding and research base for giant pandas. Opening the doors to these thrilling urban experiences, Tivoli Chengdu will feature a collection of signature Tivoli moments twinned with authentic cultural discoveries.
Designed to resemble a spread-out gilded scroll, the property is nestled into lush, green surroundings. In the soaring lobby, hibiscus pillars and earthenware artworks aim to bring Chengdu’s natural landscapes indoors, while inside the spacious Deluxe Rooms muted tones and luxury furnishings create a deeply relaxing environment. At 75 square metres, the signature Tivoli Rooms provide ample space and a luxurious residential feel enhanced by nature-inspired art, such as the handmade butterfly print over the bed chosen for its symbolism and lucky connotations.
With six dining and lifestyle venues, gastronomy is a major highlight of the Tivoli Chendgu experience. Casa de Fados, the first Portuguese restaurant in Chengdu, will host a European-style Sunday brunch, as well as serving daily seafood-rich Mediterranean meals paired with fine wines on a sunny terrace surrounded by a garden. Another signature venue, Tihong Chinese Restaurant, is designed as a lively family hub where diners can sample dim sum and contemporary Szechuan and Cantonese dishes prepared with ingredients sourced from Chengdu and its environs. The restaurant’s 11 private dining rooms are each named after the prose poems penned by the great Chengdu-born poet, Sima Xiangru.
At the all-day dining CAFÉ 1933, chefs concoct exquisite dishes from around the globe, with a focus on South-east Asian specialties. Lobby Lounge will offer light Western meals and casual dining in vibrant surrounds, with premium teas served at the adjacent antique tea room. Fun DIY bakery sessions and chocolate workshops will be offered as part of the family-friendly Mr Fun Bakery House experience, an extension of the Lobby Lounge. Family picnic sets are also available to enjoy out in the gardens or in Chengdu Cultural Heritage Park. A must at Tivoli Chengdu are sundowners and celebrations at the Sky Bar offering panoramic views over the park and classic Tivoli cocktails.
The property’s 800-square-metre outdoor Kids’ Garden will provide baby-sitting services as well as offering dedicated pet’s bed, pet’s menu, and a spacious play area. Other amenities include a fully-equipped health centre, the renowned Anantara Spa and a soon-to-open swimming pool. With its 2,275-square-metre pillarless banquet hall and heritage-themed coffee breaks, Tivoli Chengdu is perfectly positioned for events of any size and style. The 3,650-square-metre outdoor lawn, in the meantime, is ideal for weddings and social celebrations.
A short walking distance from Tivoli Chengdu is Chengdu Metro Line 4, providing convenient access to local popular attractions such as the Broad and Narrow Alley, Du Fu Thatched Cottage, Qingyang Palace, Huanhuaxi Park and Tianfu Square. Nancaoping Ecology Park and the 18-hole Tianfu Golf Club are also within easy reach.
