YUNNAN, China and McLEAN, Va. - Hilton Hotels & Resorts today announced the opening of Hilton Yuxi Fuxian Lake, bringing Hilton's world-class hospitality to picturesque Yunnan Province for the first time. Owned by Yunnan Metropolitan City Investment Group and managed by Hilton Worldwide, Hilton Yuxi Fuxian Lake is located on the northeast coast of landmark destination Fuxian Lake. The hotel exudes a relaxed Mediterranean style, offering 346 luxurious guest rooms with stunning views in an exclusive resort setting in southwest China. This hotel will be the Yunnan Metropolitan City Investment Group's fifth hotel in China.

"Hilton has always enjoyed strong resonance in China, having been one of the first international brands to operate in this dynamic country. The addition of Hilton Yuxi Fuxian Lake strengthens our presence in China where we now have more than 50 hotels, further introducing the Hilton brand to many more corporate and leisure travelers visiting this popular destination," said Rob Palleschi, global head, full service brands, Hilton Worldwide.

Conveniently located 90 kilometers away from Kunming's Changshui International Airport and lively downtown, guests at Hilton Yuxi Fuxian Lake will appreciate the well-appointed indoor and outdoor events and recreational facilities. From walking on the private white sand beach to exploring landscaped gardens and serene bamboo forests, the hotel's lush natural surroundings provide endless relaxation. The interior of Hilton Yuxi Fuxian Lake reflects the stunning outdoors, with stylish guest rooms featuring spacious private balconies with soothing lake or garden views, and furnishings incorporating distinctive elements of local Yunnan culture. Guests staying in executive rooms or suites have exclusive access to the Executive Lounge with complimentary breakfast, refreshments and evening cocktails.

Hilton Yuxi Fuxian Lake features six restaurants and bars offering beautiful views of Fuxian Lake for guests to bask in and savor as they dine. At all-day dining restaurant Asiana, guests with international palates can enjoy dishes influenced by ethnic Chinese minorities alongside other Asian and Western flavors, while Yuxi's iconic dishes combine Cantonese specialties with authentic regional culinary traditions. For fresh, seasonal signature dishes, guests can dine in a bright, inviting setting reminiscent of a glasshouse at Garden. Guests catching up with friends can do so whilst enjoying Hilton's signature afternoon tea and delicious pastries at the cosy Cha Tea Room, or over a cup of coffee on the Hu Lobby Lounge terrace. In the evening, guests can unwind with the region's finest collection of Cuban cigars and single malt whiskeys at Capa Cigar Bar.

A wide array of recreational amenities await guests at Hilton Yuxi Fuxian Lake including a luxury full-service spa, spacious indoor and outdoor swimming pools, as well as a 24-hour fully equipped fitness center. Families can also take advantage of the children's playground, mahjong and game rooms while guests seeking sporting activities can choose from mountain biking, hiking or visiting the golf driving range just a short walk away.

Hilton Yuxi Fuxian Lake also offers an extensive range of conference and event venues with more than 1,900 sq. meters of flexible meeting and banquet facilities, including a pillar-less grand ballroom comfortably accommodating up to 1,200 attendees. Guests can hold weddings and events outdoors at Hilton Yuxi Fuxian Lake which is equipped to fully utilize outdoor spaces such as the beach or glasshouse. Along with its state-of-the-art A/V technology, creative catering, 24-hour business center and dedicated events team, Hilton Yuxi Fuxian Lake ensures that each event is a success, including weddings, conferences, business meetings and cocktail receptions.

"With a population of 45 million, Yunnan is rapidly developing into a center for tourism and manufacturing. Joining the Hilton Garden Inn Lijiang, we are now opening our second hotel in Yunnan, Hilton Yuxi Fuxian Lake, to continue our tradition of welcoming leisure and business guests to the world's most dynamic economic centers and scenic tourist destinations with our stylish, forward-thinking global hospitality," said Bruce McKenzie, senior vice president, Operations, Greater China & Mongolia, Hilton Worldwide.
