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.

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.
