Hilton announces the launch of Hilton Linzhi Resort in China's
Tibet Autonomous Region. Hilton Linzhi Resort is Hilton's first hotel in the
region and home to Tibet's first nine-hole golf course. Hilton Linzhi Resort
sits atop 800 lush acres nestled between the Himalayas and Yarlung Zangbo
River decorated with big flower peonies (Paeonia Ludlowii).
"We are constantly looking to be in the places that
matter most to our guests, and Tibet - or as locals refer to it, 'The Throne of
the Sun' - is a remarkable, culturally vibrant area to debut our flagship
brand," said Sean Wooden, Vice
President, Brand Management, Asia Pacific, Hilton.
Hilton Linzhi Resort is located within the historic King of Gongbo site, at an elevation of 3,000
meters. The resort is served by Nyingchi
Airport, which is just seven kilometers away, and provides easy access to
attractions including Namjagbrawa
Mountain and the Medog Grand Canyon
Adventure Tourism Area.
Reminiscent of grand Tibetan palaces, Hilton Linzhi Resort
incorporates Chinese architectural flourishes and modern luxuries. The resort
has a unique and welcoming ambience, and its 220 guest rooms and suites have
balconies that provide unobstructed views of the Yarlung Zangbo Grand Canyon. In-room amenities include 42-inch LCD
televisions, complimentary Wi-Fi access and oxygen supply equipment for guests
who need assistance acclimating to the altitude.
Business and leisure guests alike will be pleased to find a
heated indoor pool, 24-hour fitness center, full-service spa, Kid's Club,
cinema, and facilities for billiards, chess, and karaoke. Meeting and events
spaces span 528 square meters, including a 231 square-meter pillar-less
ballroom and four boardrooms that can accommodate events such as product
launches, parties and intimate weddings. Hilton Linzhi Resort offers 24-hour
in-room dining and four restaurants and bars for guests.
