As the ancient Chinese saying goes, “The landscape of Guilin is the most beautiful in the world, but the landscape of Yangshuo is the most beautiful in Guilin.”
Amari Yangshuo, calling this beautiful city home, stands right next to the popular West Street, one of the oldest streets in Guilin, Guangxi, with direct views of the waterfront, the iconic love bridge and karst peaks all round. This four-storey hotel combines local Oriental influences with Thai-style design and is developed by Shenzhen Yitian Group Co., Ltd. as part of the exciting Yitian West Street development. The hotel will be managed by ONYX Hospitality Group as an Amari property.
Amari is the centrepiece of the ONYX portfolio of hospitality brands, reflecting the warmth and energy of an evolving modern Asia. Proud of its Asian roots, Amari creates memorable experiences that embody the spirit of local culture, as well as enhance the renowned traditions of Asian hospitality. Every Amari property shares the flavours and textures of its setting. So, whether travelling for business or pleasure, guests will discover contemporary spaces alive with energy and facilities designed to be shared with family and friends. Amari has a current portfolio of 14 hotels across the Asia-Pacific region, with new hotels currently under development in locations such as Yunnan, Galle and Johor Bahru.
In addition to launching the first Amari in China, ONYX Hospitality Group is also proud to introduce Amaya Food Gallery, the hotel’s restaurant, will also make its debut in the country.
