The resort will offer nature-inspired spaces, with themed kids’ rooms designed for family friendly experiences. 

Avani+ Xinyi Guangdong Resort, surrounded by a bamboo forest, will offer 96 modern rooms and suites, some with private balconies and pools.  

The resort will also have a restaurant, a bar, an AvaniKids club, an infinity pool, an AvaniFit gym and other facilities. 

Minor Hotels Greater China development and operations vice-president Eddy Tiftik said: “Embedded in nature, both properties offer a peaceful setting and a sense of escape. They align with the preferences of our target audience, who seek a hotel that is a destination in itself.  

“We believe that when the Avani properties open, they will create a new and exciting holiday option.” 

The properties’ location offers guests access to attractions such as a 300-year-old Shiyin Ancestral Temple and Fruit Festival, among others. 

Avani Hotels & Resorts, with a strong presence in Asia, the Middle East and southern Africa, plans to continue its expansion into new destinations in 2024. 

Last month, Minor Hotels revealed plans to open more than 200 new properties globally within the next three years. 

The company also aims to grow its management agreement share from 19% last year to 38% by 2026, targeting more than 150 new agreements.
