New hotel sets up in China’s Silicon Valley
Marriott International, INC has expanded its footprint in Greater China with the opening of Shenzhen Marriott Hotel Golden Bay. The southern city of Shenzhen is an economic powerhouse that’s home to China’s burgeoning IT scene, and known as “China’s Silicon Valley”.
Located within easy access of Hong Kong and close to the Dapeng peninsula (the origins of Shenzhen city), Shenzhen Marriott Hotel Golden Bay enjoys a prime location on the beachfront of Golden Bay – one of the top eight domestic bays in China.
The Marriott Hotel brand fosters ingenuity by providing innovative meeting spaces to help guests be creative and spark new ways of thinking. In the vicinity of Shenzhen’s tech startups and burgeoning entrepreneurial scene, the thoughtfully designed hotel connects guests with China’s rising entrepreneurs. Shenzhen Marriott Hotel Golden Bay gives access to scenic seaside views and is within a short distance from the city attractions, giving travellers the best of both worlds.
Shenzhen Marriott Hotel Golden Bay offers 317 spacious guest rooms and suites, featuring panoramic sea views, as well as high-speed Internet access and high-tech facilities. The modern interiors take cues from the local culture, combining elements from the Dapeng Fortress as well as Shenzhen’s fishing village heritage.
Guests can choose from four restaurants and a lounge that serve up a variety of inventive local and international gourmet experiences. Complemented with Marriott Hotels’ thoughtful service, each venue provides a dynamic dining experience. The brand’s signature Chinese restaurant, Man Ho takes an innovative approach to traditional Cantonese and Teochew cuisines by using seasonal ingredients and traditional recipes.
With floor to ceiling windows showcasing the breath-taking sea views, all-day dining venue Golden Bay Kitchen offers international favourites around the clock. Chuan features a versatile space that is able to accommodate a separate food stand focusing on “chuan”, which translates to “food-on-sticks”, and can be a casual grab-and-go option.
The Lounge focuses on an authentic tea experience during the day, and transforms into a relaxing place for guests to usher in the evening with a cocktail in hand. Located in the lobby entrance, The China Baking Company resembles an authentic Hong Kong café serving up fresh breads and pastries, as well as its memorable silky milk tea.
Shenzhen Marriott Hotel Golden Bay also provides a wide range of activities for guests, such as a 24-hour fitness centre, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a kids’ club and a spa.
Designed with flexibility in mind, Shenzhen Marriott Hotel Golden Bay has over 3,000 sqm of state-of-the-art event space, including the 1,000 sqm Kaisa Grand Ballroom that also provides access to a drive-in limousine catering to various needs.
In addition, it has a 480 sqm entrance foyer with a splendid sea view for an ideal pre-event reception. The hotel also features a public outdoor lawn overlooking the Golden Bay beach perfect for a whimsical outdoor wedding.
Shenzhen Marriott Hotel Golden Bay hotel is fully integrated within Shenzhen Golden Bay Vocational Area and is the only hotel situated in Kaisa Golden Bay International Park – a world-class entertainment complex. The complex is slated to open its doors in 2020, and houses multiple entertainment and sport venues, as well as exhibition centres.
The Golden Bay, one of top eight domestic bays in China, lies in the Dapeng New District of Shenzhen, a major financial centre in Southern China. The Golden Bay beach gained its fame from the golden hue it bathes in as the sun sets. It is a truly unique place for an ultimate city retreat.
