Anantara will open its third Chinese property in ecotourism destination Anji County, in the northwestern Zhejiang Province.

A popular escape for nature lovers, Anji County is renowned for its clean air and scenery.
Anantara’s new 162-key resort – named Anantara Anji – is being designed to emphasise the beauty of its surroundings and will sit against a backdrop of lush green mountain ranges and tea plantations.

Designed by architect Meng Fanhao of Line+ Studio, the resort will cover 165 acres. Anantara has announced construction will start this March and opening is slated for Q4 2024.

Complementing the area’s natural surroundings, an Anantara Spa and Zen pavilion will be on offer to help replenish and enhance guests’ health and wellbeing.

The property will also feature an outdoor swimming pool with a bar, a fitness centre, four restaurants, a children’s activity zone and meeting facilities.

Making the most of the local area and history, Anantara’s culture-minded guests will be able to enjoy a wide range of indigenous experiences nearby including visiting ancient temples and the residence of Wu Changshuo, a prominent painter, calligrapher and seal artist during the late Qing Period adjacent to the resort.

Day trips to the area’s famous bamboo forests, stream rafting sites or tea plantations will also be on offer.

Meanwhile at the resort, sustainable programmes such as tree planting activities will be offered.

Anantara Anji will join the brand’s existing China portfolio; Anantara Guiyang Resort in Guizhou Province and Anantara Xishuangbanna Resort in Yunnan Province.
