Designed by Make Architects, the 100-room hotel and its 42 adjoining serviced apartments make this the third property from Swire’s The House Collective. Understated luxury permeates the venue which features The Temple Café - the all-day dining restaurant, Tivano – an authentic Italian restaurant and Jing Bar featuring live DJs..
In the renovated Chinese courtyard which was built nearly one hundred years ago, SPA Mi Xun offers guests an urban oasis to unwind and relax. The gift shop and tea house at Mi Xun are designed to give guests the Mi Xun experience to take home and a post treatment space to enjoy a healthy lunch, tea or fresh juice.
Brian Williams, managing director of Swire Hotels, comments: "Our goal is to create a highly individualised hotel which houses a series of dynamic restaurants and uniquely designed facilities. The Temple House presents an ideal opportunity to extend our brand into one of China’s wealthiest and fastest-growing regions."
Mark Passmore, general manager of The Temple House, adds: "The Temple House is a modern hotel that celebrates its historic location. We aim to provide discerning travellers with residential-style accommodation, where they can enjoy an authentic Chengdu experience."
