FOUR Seasons Hotels and Resorts is continuing to permeate the China market with its latest Four Seasons Hotel Shenzhen, which will open on September 1.
Cristina Dolendo, director of marketing, Four Seasons Hotel Shenzhen, said: “Today, there are more people who want to see another side of China other than the typical Shanghai and Beijing, so that is why Shenzhen is our new target.
“Shenzhen is the Silicon Valley in China, a city important for their technology, finance and manufacturing.”
Dolendo said Four Seasons Hotel Shenzhen would appeal especially to business travellers with its prime downtown location in Futian, directly opposite the city’s convention and exhibition centre.
Highlighting the hotel’s meeting facilities, Dolendo shared that the hotel offers a total of 1,800m2 of event space, including a 360-pax pillarless ballroom.
Guests also have the option of hosting receptions amid nature or in rooms with floor-to-window ceilings offering city views at the hotel’s seventh-floor terraces, either option capable of holding up to 80 pax.
She said: “We want our guests to feel relaxed and comfortable despite being in a business event, by bringing nature and outdoor living to them.”
Dolendo said the hotel was targeting a “good mix” of both business and leisure travellers in the 266-key hotel.
Four Seasons Hotel Shenzhen also features two swimming pools – one indoor, one outdoor, a 24-hour gym, a business centre with full secretariat services and three dining outlets.
The property marks Four Seasons’ eighth hotel in China, aside from hotels in key cities such as Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou and Hangzhou.
