Artyzen Hospitality Group has expanded its portfolio with the opening of Artyzen Sifang Nanjing, the group’s first Artyzen resort property and its second operational hotel in mainland China. Located at the foot of Lao Shan National Forest Park, northwest of Nanjing Foshou Lake, the hotel is a short drive from downtown Nanjing.
Artyzen Sifang Nanjing offers a unique stay experience in the green sanctuary of Lao Shan National Forest Park, which is a destination in itself. Architecture and art lovers will be able to visit the Sifang Art Museum and appreciate the architectural collection of uniquely designed villas that bear the artistic hallmarks of 20 world-renowned and local architects, including Arata Isozaki, Steven Holl, Kazuyo Sejima, Ettore Sottsass, and Wang Shu, the first Chinese winner of the Pritzker Prize.
The sprawling property currently offers 91 rooms and will gradually offer 93 more rooms in 20 one-of-a-kind villas, each designed by a famous architect.
Guests can choose to dine at Labbra Rosse, which serves Mediterranean-inspired cuisine which is led by Mert Yukselen, who won the Best Creative Chef Award on The Greatest Chef of China CCTV. Guests can enjoy dessert creations by Pastry Chef Andrew Xue, winner of Best Chocolate Cake Award in the China Pastry Cup. For other gastronomical delights, there is Chuan Palace, which offers Cantonese, Huai Yang and Sichuan cuisines in an opulent dining area flanked by 14 private dining rooms.
The Rooftop Bar features a selection of whiskies, wines and cocktails; while the hotel’s Lobby Lounge offers afternoon tea.
