Amari Yangshuo, ONYX Hospitality Group’s first Amari hotel in China, was topped off recently. The construction and development of this 73-room property is progressing on schedule, with plans for opening in the first half of 2017.

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.”

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 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. An Amari brand concept inspired by the well-loved street food markets of Asia, the 360-square-metre Amaya Food Gallery is an all-day dining venue located within Amari Yangshuo.

“At ONYX Hospitality Group, we are committed not just towards attracting more guests to our Thailand-based properties, but expanding our presence in other parts of the region,” said Tommy Lai, Vice President, North Asia, ONYX Hospitality Group. “We are excited to announce that our first Amari in China has just topped off, and is on track to open in the first half of 2017. Amari Yangshuo symbolises the strong Sino-Thai cooperation between Shenzhen Yitian and ONYX, and also a significant milestone for our expanding Amari brand.”
