Downtown and Suburbs, A Gary Player Designed Golf Course Surrounds
the Surbanban Sofitel Zhongshan Golf & Resort
|BANGKOK, 29 May, 2006 — Accor’s largest-ever expansion of the Sofitel
brand in China racked up another impressive achievement, officially opening
two hotels in Nanjing, Sofitel Galaxy Nanjing and Sofitel Zhongshan Golf
& Resort – on the same day. This amazing milestone marks the first
time anywhere in the world that Accor has launched two Sofitel hotels on
the same day in the same city.
The two distinct Sofitel hotels are located in two different areas of Nanjing’s expanding downtown and suburbs: Sofitel Galaxy Nanjing right in the heart of the city centre while Sofitel Zhongshan Golf & Resort is an easy 20-minute drive away.
Located in the city’s Zhongshan district, the 140-room Sofitel Zhongshan Golf & Resort Nanjing’s marquee attraction is the 27-hole Gary Player designed golf course and club house that surrounds the resort.
For non-golfers the resort offers a comprehensive range of other leisure facilities including an indoor swimming pool, tennis court, fitness centre, day spa, beauty salon and Mahjong rooms.
The low-rise colonial style hotel features 114 deluxe rooms measuring a massive 57 sqm, 12 executive rooms with 30 sqm balconies and 14 suites in three categories for top end clientele. All rooms and suites feature Sofitel’s cocoon like ‘MyBed’, large screen plasma TV and individual balconies with views of Zijin Mountain or the golf course.
The resort’s ballroom can accommodate 300 delegates for sit down banquets or meetings with eight private conference rooms of various sizes. Sofitel Zhongshang Golf Resort’s six food and beverage outlets are a paradise of culinary delights:
On the hotel’s 46th floor a Club Sofitel Lounge allows guests to enjoy express check-in, complimentary breakfast and nightly cocktails. The hotel’s grand ballroom caters to up to 750 for cocktail receptions with 11 additional break out rooms available. This hotel also offers an indoor swimming pool, tennis court, fitness centre, day spa, beauty salon and Mahjong rooms.
Sofitel Galaxy has five innovative food and beverage outlets serving a diverse range of dishes:
Three more Sofitels are scheduled to open in China before the end of
2006, giving Accor 20 Sofitel hotel, making it the country’s largest and
most recognisable luxury hotel brand
