Anantara Anji Resort offers eco-tourism destination in China

Anantara Anji Resort offers eco-tourism destination in China
February 22, 2022

Anantara is expanding its luxury eco-destination offerings by opening Anji Resort in northwestern Zhejiang Province with the property featuring a fitness centre and Anantara Spa with full healing and wellness facilities.

Emerald mountains and tea plantations form the backdrop of the new Anantara Anji which is located on 165 acres of land and offers 162 guest rooms with sizes ranging from 53-216 square metres. Also offered are state of the art meeting facilities, an outdoor swimming pool with bar, four international restaurants including Chinese and international cuisine, and a children’s activity zone. 

A popular escape for nature lovers, Anji County is located three-hours’ drive from Shanghai and less than an hour’s drive from Zhejiang’s capital of Hangzhou.  

Known for its cooler climate, clean air and breathtaking scenery, Anji has been designated as an ecology-friendly city where the residents have established a thriving eco-friendly agricultural and tourism sector showcasing pollution-free green products, such as white tea, alpine vegetables, and flowers. Anji is also home to one of the largest natural bamboo forests in the world with over 60,000 hectares of bamboo groves containing over 40 different species. 

Sustainable programs such as tree planting activities for the whole family, which will be organically integrated with the resort’s facilities will also be on offer creating an ideal place for multi-generational travel experiences.

Anantara’s culture-minded guests will be able to enjoy a wide range of indigenous experiences nearby including ancient temples and the residence of Wu Changshuo, a prominent painter, calligrapher and seal artist during the late Qing Period adjacent to the resort. Guests can also do day trips to the area’s famous bamboo forests, stream rafting sites or harvest tea in nearby plantations.

The resort’s unique architecture is designed by internationally renowned architect, Meng Fanhao of Line+ Studio which has been recognised for its creative and innovative designs. Construction will commence in March 2022 and is due to be completed by the end of 2024.

Anantara Anji will join Anantara Guiyang Resort in Guizhou Province and Anantara Xishuangbanna Resort in Yunnan Province as the brand’s third property in China connecting guests to genuine places, people and stories through personal experiences, and providing heartfelt hospitality.
