Conrad Hotels & Resorts, Hilton’s (NYSE: HLT) smart luxury hotel brand, today announced the opening of Conrad Xiamen, on the southwestern coast of Xiamen Island. Owned by Shimao Group and managed by Hilton, Conrad Xiamen is the first Conrad hotel in Fujian province, the sixth in China among a portfolio that includes Conrad Hong Kong, Conrad Sanya Haitang Bay, Conrad Dalian, Conrad Macao, and Conrad Beijing, and joins the larger Hilton portfolio of over 70 hotels in China.

“Conrad Xiamen is an excellent addition to our China portfolio. It underscores our commitment to growing our presence across the top destinations of this market and our confidence in the increasing demand for luxury accommodations from a new generation of smart luxury travelers,” said Bruce McKenzie, senior vice president of operations, Greater China & Mongolia, Hilton.

Conrad Xiamen occupies the 37th to 54th floors of the iconic 300-meter tall Shimao Straits Tower, in the heart of Siming’s Central Business District. Designed to be a shopping, leisure, and business hub, Shimao Straits Tower is a striking sea-facing landmark with a sail-shaped design boasting expansive views of the famous Gulangyu Island. Guests of Conrad Xiamen will enjoy direct access to a shopping mall and a cinema, as well as the prestigious Shapowei dining precinct. Nan Pu tuo Temple and Xiamen University are within walking distance and Conrad Xiamen is also close to major businesses and popular attractions such as Gulangyu Island ferry terminal, Zhongshan Road and Baicheng Beach. Conrad Xiamen is 22 kilometers from Xiamen Gaoqi International Airport.

“We are delighted with the debut of our Conrad Hotel & Resorts brand in Fujian. Conrad Xiamen is a great flagship hotel that epitomizes the luxurious facilities and intuitive service that will provide our guests with inspired experiences and define a new standard for luxury in Xiamen,” said John Vanderslice, global head, Conrad Hotels & Resorts.

Conrad Xiamen has 241 guest rooms and suites with floor-to-ceiling windows that offer breathtaking views. Averaging 60 square meters, the rooms have walk-in wardrobes, large flat screen TVs, Wi-Fi and wired Internet access, Nespresso machines, hydrotherapy rain showers and 400-thread count luxury bed linens. Alternatively, guests can opt for suites and executive rooms with exclusive access to the Executive Lounge on the 54th floor.

Overlooking the city from the 37th floor is a 24-hour Health Club with a full range of cardio and strength training equipment, as well as personal trainers. The heated 25-meter indoor pool offers sea views and guests can also unwind in the Jacuzzi or enjoy personalized treatments at Conrad Spa, which uses only the purest natural products.

With over 2,000 square meters of flexible meeting space and state-of-the-art audiovisual technology, Conrad Xiamen is also an ideal venue for corporate events, social gatherings and weddings. There are eight multifunction meeting rooms that can accommodate up to 210 people and a pillar-less, 760-square meter ballroom that is connected to a sea-facing 380 square meter foyer.

Conrad Xiamen delivers exquisite culinary experiences with its five restaurants and bars. Coast Bar & Grill offers the ultimate sky dining experience, with fresh seafood, grilled specialties and the highest bar in town. Lucheng serves mouth-watering Cantonese and Fujian delicacies, and has eight private rooms that are perfect for small functions. Pier 38 is an all-day dining restaurant with a buffet featuring a vast array of Asian and Western dishes, interactive cooking stations and great sea views. The sophisticated Plush serves High Tea by day and transforms into a vibrant bar in the evenings. Offering fine wines and snacks, it is a great place for socializing and relaxing. And at Parisian patisserie French Kiss, guests can expect fine pastries and Western-style meals.

To ensure that guests enjoy all that the city has to offer by way of culture, art, cuisine and adventure, Conrad Xiamen offers signature Conrad 1/3/5 experiences.
