International luxury hotel group Wanda Hotels & Resorts has officially opened a new Wanda Reign hotel in Chengdu. Wanda Reign is the group's premium brand of luxury hotels, and the Chengdu property is its second Wanda Reign hotel, after Wanda Reign Wuhan, as well as the brand's first location in China's southwest region.

"It is with great pride that we bring the premium Wanda Reign label to Chengdu, a city steeped in history and culture, to present our most discerning domestic and international guests with the finest hospitality experience and revitalise the local hospitality industry," said Wanda Reign Chengdu General Manager Roger Marcz.

Wanda Reign Chengdu enjoys a prime central location in the city's business district, where South Renmin Road meets the Jinjiang River. Chengdu is also the starting point of the Southern Silk Road. 

Elements of Chinese culture are woven through the hotel for a sense of place. Designed with a New Chinese Art Deco theme, the hotel incorporates local Shu motifs, such as the Chinese hibiscus, Sichuan-style trellis patterns, tassels and lanterns, into classic Art Deco. This attention to style extends to staff livery, which has been created by local designer and Paris Haute Couture Week alumnus Lawrence Xu.

The hotel comprises 240 rooms and suites, featuring the Bed of Reign in every room. The beds are equipped with Talalay latex mattresses handmade in the US and dressed in New Zealand wool, and complemented by the hotel's signature Dream Catcher services, which offer amenities such as aromatherapy, soothing music and bedtime reading materials. Most of the rooms also have massage chairs for the ultimate comfort. 

All hotel rooms are equipped with an interactive TV, iPad room control system, smart lighting, an intelligent sensor-controlled bathroom and complimentary 1GB Wi-Fi access. Guests on the executive floor are offered personal care amenities from Hermès, while the Presidential Suite hosts guests in 330 sq m filled with handcrafted furnishings and fine art, including glazed porcelain, metallic sculptures and a hibiscus painting detailed in gold leaf. 

ZHEN is the Chinese restaurant on the 5th floor serving refined Cantonese and local Sichuan cuisine. Customised Prosperity Feasts can be created upon request. The hotel's Sky Lobby is located on the 41st floor and enjoys a bird's eye view of the city as well as of the city's landmarks, Tianfu Square in the north and the Jinjiang River in the south. Café Reign, also on the 41st floor, is the highest restaurant in Chengdu, and offers all-day dining including seafood grills and aged steak. 

Designed for its most elite clientele, the exclusive Club Reign delivers a customer service experience of comfort, privacy and unparalleled luxury. At Wanda Reign Chengdu, a range of private dining and recreational facilities have been especially designed for Club Reign members, including the RIVER DRUNK Huaiyang restaurant with four private dining rooms. The RIVER DRUNK, Chengdu's first Huaiyang restaurant in a luxury hotel, serves classic Huaiyang dishes with a touch of Sichuan influence. The restaurant's open terrace offers panoramic views of the city as well as attendants and private chef services.

The Galaxy Bar on the 7th floor features a private elevator, reception hall and networking lounge, making it a suitable venue for a corporate event or private party. The Universe KTV offers five rooms, each equipped with its own control system, professional-grade audio equipment and private dance floors.

For private parties or corporate functions, a grand ballroom and six private function rooms can be found on the 3rd floor. The grand ballroom offers 1,150 sq m of pillar-free space with a ceiling height of 8m, and is equipped with a 90 sq m high-definition LED screen as well as an elevator built for transporting vehicles and accommodating bulky equipment. For an unforgettable reception, the hotel's chauffeured Bentley is also available to welcome guests.
