A peaceful haven in a city-centre setting in lively Chengdu
Sometimes you find hotels that are all about balance. YiuTeung Mansion, in Chengdu, is one such retreat. Taking inspiration from traditional Chinese architecture and the city’s famous author, Ba Jin, it’s centred around an inner courtyard that gives it a truly tranquil feel. Yet it’s right in the middle of a thriving city. The sights, sounds and heat of Sichuan spice are right on your doorstep – all you have to do is dive in.
From the Deluxe rooms to the sublime Executive Suite, YiuTeung Mansion bedrooms are bright and spacious. Neutral shades of white, beige and cream allow quirky furnishings and subtle Chengdu artwork to shine. Relax and recharge, before saluting the sun with a yoga session in the hotel’s fitness centre. Then make your way to the Magnolia All-Day Restaurant for an authentic dining experience.
Of course, as a UNESCO City of Gastronomy, Chengdu is bursting with fiery (and hugely varied) flavours of its own. Sample everything from delicate wontons to guo kuei (a deep-fried pancake). Then taste tradition in one of the city’s many teahouses. When you’ve had your fill, learn about Chengdu’s history at Chengdu Museum or the serene Wenshu Monastery. Here for giant cuddly bears? Be sure to stop off at the Giant Panda Breeding Research Base.
Enjoy your stay!
