Yada Xishan Hotel Yixing Officially Opens as New Addition of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt Brand
Blending natural beauty with contemporary Chinese aesthetics, the spiritual hideaway invites guests to enjoy elevated experiences.

CHICAGO (May 2, 2024)Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE: H) announced today the opening of Yada Xishan Hotel Yixing, the first Hyatt-branded hotel in the charming city of Yixing and the latest addition to The Unbound Collection by Hyatt portfolio. Located in the heart of the Yangxian Ecotourism Resort in Yixing, this enchanting sanctuary marks a significant milestone in The Unbound Collection by Hyatt’s brand expansion, as the eighth property to open in Greater China. Designed for those who are seeking an escape from the fast-paced urban life, this 102-room hotel is a one-of-a-kind luxurious retreat, offering guests a unique blend of natural wonders and cultural richness nestled where the majestic Taihu Lake begins.

Yixing is located in the south of the Yangtze River, where the provinces of Jiangsu, Zhejiang, and Anhui meet. In addition to its extraordinary natural landscapes and scenery, Yixing is known for its unique geographical location and long-standing heritage that has been present for over a thousand years. Renowned for its purple sand ceramics, it is known within the region as the "pottery capital," as well as the birthplace of calligraphy, painting and academics." Situated within the Yangxian Ecotourism Resort, which is built on a slope among 185,000 acres of bamboo forest and 43,000 acres of tea plantations, the hotel is surrounded by several historical landmarks such as the Bamboo Sea View Area, Zhanggong Cave, and the Taozu Holy Land, creating a tranquil destination to recharge and revitalize.

The architectural and interior design of Yada Xishan Hotel Yixing is a tribute to the serene elegance of the Jiangnan area’s traditional aesthetics, seamlessly integrated with modern design philosophies. The hotel’s design ethos respects the local heritage while embracing contemporary comfort, offering guests a sanctuary where the past and present coexist in harmony. Every element, from the minimalist grace of the public spaces to the tranquil retreats of the guestrooms and suites, is designed to enhance the interaction between guests and the serene Jiangnan landscape, providing a multi-sensory experience that is both rejuvenating and inspiring.


Yada Xishan Hotel Yixing features 102 comfortable and modern Chinese-style rooms, including 17 suites, which combine elegant and simple design concepts in the traditional Jiangnan design and architecture. Each guestroom offers a dedicated north and south double courtyard or private balcony, allowing guests to lose themselves in the tranquil beauty of Jiangnan landscapes. French casements are specially designed in each room to give full exposure to the aesthetic application of light and shadow, creating a pleasant atmosphere. All rooms are equipped with luxurious bedding, modern amenities, and separate rain showers and bathtubs, allowing guests to have a luxuriously comfortable stay.

Culinary experiences

Yada Xishan Hotel Yixing not only provides guests a place to commune with nature, but also invites them to enjoy the art of Jiangnan cuisine among the mountains and rivers.

The elegant dining environment echoes classic Jiangnan culture from the cutlery to the furniture. Located on the ground floor of the hotel, the Lobby Lounge offers a relaxing atmosphere and a variety of dining options, while a specially designed afternoon tea service brings guests a wide selection of local varieties. Guests can enjoy a cup of coffee or tea at any time of day or opt for a delicious dish from the à la carte menu, making the lounge an ideal place to wind down. With its open-concept design and relaxed atmosphere, The Brook bar offers a wide range of beverages and Chinese and Western style snacks, enjoyed either indoors against a relaxing soundtrack, or outdoors among the hotel’s surrounding natural beauty.
