Avani Huajian Xinyi Guangdong Resort 2024

23 February, 2024

Minor Hotels, an international hotel owner, operator and investor with more than 540 hotels in 56 countries worldwide, and its joint venture partner in China, Funyard Minor JV Co., (China), is announcing 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 the year.

Integrating leisure, culture and ecotourism elements, Avani’s design-led properties will anchor the development plans for an area that will comprise several hotels, commercial blocks and residential holiday villas, all offering an immersive cultural experience inspired by ancient Chinese traditions.

Located in the foothills of Shuanghe Village beside the calm waters of the River Huanghua, Avani Huajian Xinyi Guangdong Resort will feature 86 spacious rooms and suites, an all-day dining restaurant offering authentic Gaoliang cuisine, an AvaniFit gym and Xinyi’s first infinity sky pool. A keen focus will be placed on cutting-edge amenities and nature-inspired indoor-outdoor spaces. Designed with families in mind, Avani Huajian Xinyi will offer themed kids rooms, providing the right balance between rest and play.

Surrounded by bamboo forest, Avani+ Xinyi Guangdong Resort will take its perch in the mountains above Ma’an Village. In addition to 96 modern rooms and suites, some with private balconies and pools, the resort will feature a contemporary all-day dining restaurant, a bar, an infinity pool, an AvaniFit gym, an AvaniKids club, and other facilities to promote relaxation in nature.

Avani+ Xinyi Guangdong Resort 2024 debut

Xinyi, an up-and-coming ecotourism destination, is rich in ecological resources and boasts numerous natural attractions, including a sprawling alpine meadow, the largest bamboo forest in western Guangdong, a spectacular mountain lake, hot springs, and award-winning ecotourism areas. Additionally, holidaymakers can tour the 300-year-old Shiyin Ancestral Temple with a grove counting over 30,000 century-old olive trees or attend the popular Fruit Festival that celebrates locally grown Sanhua plum and attracts over one million visitors annually.

"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,” commented Mr. 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.”

“We are thrilled to introduce our first two Avani properties in Greater China,” said Mr. Eddy Tiftik, Vice President of Development & Operations, Minor Hotels, 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. We believe that when the Avani properties open, they will create a new and exciting holiday option.”

Already with a strong presence in Asia, the Middle East, and Southern Africa, Avani Hotels & Resorts’ expansion into new destinations continues in 2024 with further openings in Asia, Europe and the Seychelles, as well as South and Central America.
