    To continue the brand expansion by Le Meridien in the China region, Le Méridien Xiamen will debut in this month. The hotel hopes to provide creative, open-minded and forward-thinking travelers with a culturally enriching experience.
    Le Méridien Xiamen will be the first international hotel located on the city mountain park of Xiamen on the south-eastern coast of Fujian Province.

    Owned by Xiamen FULONG Sports Development Co., Ltd., the new hotel is just 15 minutes from the town center in Xiamen and Xiamen International Airport.

    Nestled on the slope of Xianyue Hill and surrounded by forest and natural views, the hotel features 348 refined guest rooms including 12 villa suites, all with private balconies overlooking either the courtyard or the mountain.

    The hotel will feature two restaurants and a bar, as well as 10 meeting rooms with over 2,000sqm of meeting space including a 842sqm and 10m high pillarless Grand Ballroom with natural daylight.

    Guests will also enjoy the fitness center, indoor heated swimming pool, spa, jogging and hiking trail along the mountain park of Xianyue. Le Meridien Xiamen is the only international hotel in the area that offers tennis courts on a hill.

    Starwood Hotels and Resorts, senior vice president, Qian Jin said: “We are proud to announce the opening of Le Méridien Qingdao and Le Méridien Chongqing in the stunning key cities in China. In addition to Chongqing and Qingdao, Xiamen is famous for great landscape and rich cultural offerings. These locations are a great fit with Le Méridien brand and these new hotels highlight the significant development of the brand in China.”

    Le Méridien currently operates 26 hotels in Asia Pacific and 6 hotels and resorts in China and Taiwan including Le Méridien Chongqing, Le Méridien Qingdao, Le Royal Méridien Shanghai, Le Méridien Sheshan Shanghai, Le Méridien Shimei Bay Beach Resort and Le Méridien Cyberport, Hong Kong. By 2012, the brand would have opened three new hotels in China and Taiwan including: Le Méridien Xiamen, Le Méridien Xian and Le Méridien Taipei.
