Minor Hotels and joint venture partner Funyard Minor JV Co have announced the upcoming debut of Avani Hotels & Resorts in China. 

Located in a protected national forest area of Guangdong Province, Avani Huajian Xinyi Guangdong Resort and Avani+ Xinyi Guangdong Resort will be one of the first international upscale hotel brands in Xinyi when they open in the first half of 2024. The new properties will join a development comprising several hotels, commercial blocks and residential holiday villas, all offering an immersive cultural experience inspired by ancient Chinese traditions. 

Located in the foothills of the village of Shuanghe, Avani Huajian Xinyi Guangdong Resort will comprise 86 rooms and suites, an all-day dining restaurant offering authentic Gaoliang cuisine, an AvaniFit gym and Xinyi’s first infinity pool, with a focus placed on nature-inspired indoor-outdoor spaces. 

Surrounded by bamboo forest, Avani+ Xinyi Guangdong Resort will perch in the mountains above the village of Ma’an. In addition to 96 modern rooms and suites, some with private balconies and pools, the resort will offer a contemporary all-day dining restaurant, a bar, an infinity pool and gym. 

New eco-tourism destination Xinyi is rich in ecological resources and offers a range of natural attractions, including a sprawling alpine meadow, the largest bamboo forest in western Guangdong and natural hot springs. 

“Avani Huajian Xinyi Guangdong Resort and Avani+ Xinyi Guangdong Resort will not only mark a significant milestone for Minor Hotels but also for the hospitality landscape in Xinyi,” comments Dillip Rajakarier, Group CEO of Minor International and CEO of Minor Hotels. “The openings stand testament to the brand’s vision to create exceptional and culturally immersive experiences for guests.” 

Eddy Tiftik, Vice President of Development & Operations, Minor Hotels, Greater China adds: “We are thrilled to introduce our first two Avani properties in Greater China. Embedded in nature, both properties offer a peaceful setting and a sense of escape. They align with the preferences of our target audience, who seek a hotel that is a destination in itself.
