Bama in Guangxi Province is a fifth tier Chinese city but a domestically known longevity town. The Owner has an extraordinary vision to preserve Bama’s natural resources with the ambition to put this little-known town on the world map. Bamboo Grove Hotel is the launch project to introduce the first 5-star hospitality facility in Bama.

The project intends to raise the standard of hospitality and entertainment/service facilities for the town that is currently lacking such infrastructure. Instead of a place for retreat, it’s a complex that offers relevant supporting program to attract activities and interactions. In addition, Bamboo Grove Hotel intends to serve as a training facility for the Owner’s new hotel brand and her operation team. This project is a prelude to a long-term development and investment planning the Owner has for the town of Bama, including the Bama Sanctuary Hotel currently designed by Kengo Kuma.

Bamboo Grove Hotel has 70 guest suites including the 60 sm standard suites, 120 sm deluxe suites, and a 640 sm presidential suite on the highest floor. Other programs include All-Day Dining, Noodle Bar, Pastry Shop, Chinese Restaurant, two Function Rooms, Health Club & Spa, outdoor Swimming Pool, Administrative Area, and on-site Parking Garage.
