Regent Hotels and Resorts recently announced the topping out of Regent Place Xian, a new luxury hotel located in the capital of China’s Shaanxi province, scheduled to open in second half of 2016. Regent Place Xian is the second of four Regent hotels to open in the next three years, following Regent Chongqing and preceding Regent Place Harbin and Regent Jakarta.
With the external structure of Regent Place Xian complete, BLINK Design Group is now working closely with HBA / Hirsch Bedner Associates and Aecom Technology Corporation on interior and landscaping designs. Regent Place Xian will offer 156 guest rooms and suites exquisitely decorated with elements reflecting the city’s rich history. The contemporary interiors will feature ceramic pieces of art evocative of Xian’s Terracotta warriors, as well as stunningly intricate metalwork recalling the immaculate detailing of traditional Chinese headpieces worn during the Imperial Dynasty.
In line with Regent’s commitment to offering inspirational food and beverage outlets, Regent Place Xian will house four unique restaurants, including an all-day dining restaurant and café, a Chinese restaurant, Japanese cuisine and teppanyaki. A grand ballroom, five multifunctional meeting spaces, a state-of-the-art business center, a fully equipped gym, spa, swimming pool and sauna will complete the offering at Regent Place Xian.
“Regent is a luxury hotel brand with its roots deeply engrained in Asia, dedicated to creating the perfect mix of east and west, modern and tradition,” says Regent Hotels and Resorts Chairman Steven Pan. “It is an honor to have the opportunity to launch our presence in city so rich in culture and history.”
Xian, situated in northwestern China, is the oldest of the Four Great Ancient Capitals. It held its position under eleven of the most important dynasties in Chinese history, spanning more than 3,100 years. Xian is the starting point of the Silk Road and home to the Terracotta Army of Emperor Qin Shi Huang, making it a popular destination for both domestic and international visitors. Regent Place Xian is close to the famous Dayan Tower and 50 minutes away from Xian Xianyang International Airport.
