A burgeoning center of ecotourism in China, the “Forest City” of Guiyang is a lush backdrop for the Anantara Guiyang resort. The capital of Guizhou Province, Guiyang’s abundance of natural phenomena such as lakes, caves, rivers, and waterfalls beckon those with an affinity for exploration. Resort accommodations include 218 rooms, suites, and pool villas, all of which are inspired by the Chinese “yin and yang” concept of culture and nature. Guests at the Anantara Guiyang may also choose to venture out and explore the city’s cultural and historical landmarks like the renowned garrison town of Qingyan — famed for its immaculate stone architecture — and the waterfalls at Huangguoshu, which are among the largest and most scenic in East Asia. After a day of sightseeing, the luxurious Anantara Spa awaits those wanting to indulge in a signature massage or green tea purification treatment.
