Ayant récemment dévoilé le projet LUX* Tea Horse Road, qui est la pierre angulaire de son expansion en Chine, le groupe LUX* Resorts & Hotels est ravi d’annoncer l’ouverture de son nouveau boutique-hôtel, LUX* Lijiang, ce 9 septembre 2014.

Situé au coeur de l’Ancienne cité de Lijiang, un site classé au Patrimoine Mondial de l’UNESCO, LUX* Lijiang capture l’essence de l’extraordinaire région de Shangri-La, dans un paysage préservé et empreint de l’histoire de la Chine occidentale. Sous les structures en bois traditionnelles héritées de l’architecture Naxi, les chambres de ce nouvel établissement sont élégantes et contemporaines. Les fenêtres s'ouvrent sur des courettes et des toits pittoresques. Le restaurant propose une cuisine « Fusion Naxi », et les visiteurs peuvent s’attarder au salon de thé pour déguster certains des meilleurs thés pu’er de la région.
Au pied de la Montagne du Dragon de Jade, LUX* Lijiang est un point de départ pour des aventures hors des sentiers battus. Les clients de LUX* Lijiang sont invités à découvrir la région à travers des excursions personnalisées qui stimulent le corps et l’esprit. Ils partent explorer les chemins à pied, à vélo ou à cheval et découvrent les cérémonies de thé inspirées des histoires de la Tea Horse Road (Route du thé et des chevaux). Grâce aux guides LUX* les clients ont l'opportunité de rencontrer de véritables Shamans Dongba, en audience privée.
LUX* Lijiang reflète la philosophie du LUX*qui s'inspire toujours des traditions des pays dans lesquels il s'implante. Participer à une chasse au trésor dans l’Ancienne cité, vivre une authentique cérémonie du thé, découvrir une culture fascinante dans la bibliothèque Cha Ma Dao et partager avec ses proches ses aventures grâce aux appels internationaux gratuits passés par le biais d’un téléphone d’époque installé dans la bibliothèque, apprendre l’art de l'écriture des pictogrammes Dongba, explorer à cheval les premiers sentiers de la Tea Horse Road et gravir des pics montagneux lors de randonnées sur mesure sont autant d'expériences enrichissantes à vivre au LUX* Lijiang.
L’ouverture de LUX* Lijiang marque le départ d'une nouvelle collection de boutiques-hôtels appelée LUX*Tea Horse Road. Elle est développée en partenariat avec Lijiang Yulong Tourism Corporation Limited. Ce voyage unique au coeur des provinces du Yunnan et du Szechuan permettent aux voyageurs de découvrir la magnifique région du Shangri-La.
Paul Jones, CEO de LUX* Resorts & Hotels, mène l’élaboration et de la conception de ce projet passionnant. Il explique pourquoi LUX* Tea Horse Road est une aventure idéale pour une marque innovante comme LUX* en pleine expansion, commençant avec l’ouverture de LUX* Lijiang aujourd’hui :
"Le progrès économique de la Chine, sa stabilité et la facilité grandissante de voyager ont fait du continent chinois une attraction pour les voyageurs avisés qui sont à la recherche de destinations encore vierges et susceptibles de leur offrir des expériences inédites et authentiques. Il n’est pas surprenant que LUX* l’ait aussi trouvée irrésistible.
En tant qu’organisation jeune et dynamique, nous sommes déterminés à développer notre marque et notre présence en Chine, et d’ouvrir une fenêtre sur l’une des merveilles les plus spectaculaires et préservées de la Chine : la Tea Horse Road. Cette ambition est devenue une réalité grâce à notre partenariat avec la Lijiang Yulong Tourism Corporation Ltd.
En très peu de temps, nous avons constitué une base importante de clients chinois pour nos hôtels de l'Océan Indien. Notre intention est désormais de créer le séjour de leur vie dans l'une des régions de leur pays. Mon but personnel est d'offrir à tous nos hôtes l'opportunité de faire partie de la vie joyeuse, exclusive et harmonieuse de l'hôtel. Je suis persuadé que nous pouvons y arriver avec LUX* en Chine.
Nous sommes véritablement enthousiasmés par l'ouverture de LUX* Tea Horse Road - un chemin à tra-vers l'Espace et le Temps et d'inviter les voyageurs les plus audacieux et les plus exigeants à venir vivre l'expérience, à savourer et à apprécier les merveilles culturelles, naturelles et spirituelles de la région du Shangri-La."
En charge du projet dans la province du Yunnan, Dominik Ruhl, directeur régional de LUX* Resorts & Hotels, dit : 
" être enchanté de faire partie de ce projet pionnier qui marque la création de ce qui va devenir l'un des plus beaux voyages au monde, dont le point de départ se situe , ici, au coeur de l'Ancienne Ville de Lijiang."
Monsieur He, Président de la Yulong Tourism Corporation Ltd, a aussi exprimé sa satisfaction avec ce par-tenariat. «Nous avons accueilli de nombreux voyageurs du monde entier et sommes heureux de ce parte-nariat avec LUX* Resorts & Hotels. Ensemble, nous allons commencer un nouveau chapitre de l'histoire du tourisme et de l'hôtellerie dans la région légendaire du Shangri-La. Nous sommes fiers d'ouvrir LUX* Lijiang, la première étape de ce qui est en passe de devenir l'un des plus beaux voyages au monde".
Pour marquer cet évènement, la Yulong Tourism Corporation Ltd a fait appel à He Zhigang, le grand maître de la calligraphie chinoise, pour pérenniser ce moment mémorable – l’accord entre la Corporation et LUX*– de son art plein de gra ce. De la montagne à la mer, ensemble, main dans la main, pour le succès et la prospérité.
