(28 Apr 2021) Langham Hospitality has opened its 13th hotel in China and 25th globally.
The 295-room Langham Place, Changsha is located within the expansive Da Wang Shan Resort, southwest of Changsha.
The complex is surrounded by striking natural landscapes, which include the Da Wang Shan, Xiang River, Tongxi Lake, Baxi Island and Xiangjiang Happy City.
Within Da Wang Shan Resort and easily accessible by hotel guests are multiple entertainment and amusement parks which include one of the world’s largest indoor ski slopes, Snow World, The Deep Pit Ice, and a water park featuring a 60 metre high waterfall.
“We are very proud to introduce Langham Place, Changsha to the city and manage this new landmark hotel within this dynamic entertainment complex,” said Stefan Leser, chief executive officer of Langham Hospitality Group. “The arrival of our brand and the opening of this stunning hotel will further enhance the guest’s experiences at Dawang Mountain Resort and this historically rich city of Changsha.”
The property was designed by renowned international architect Wolf D. Prix of Coop Himmelblau, a pioneer of contemporary architecture in exploration and deconstructivism, and whose award-winning designs include Musee des Confluences in Lyon, France; Busan Cinema Centre in South Korea and BMW Welt – a brand experience centre in Munich, Germany.
Connected to Snow World via a plaza, the iconic hotel tower is specially designed with a highly economical system providing state-of-the-art sun shading and natural ventilation.
Rooms range in size from a spacious 36 square meters for the deluxe room to a generous 255 square metres for the Presidential Suite.
F&B outlets include:
– The Place all-day dining restaurant, offering a widespread buffet selection and an à la carte menu featuring international cuisines;

– Peak, the bar located at the highest level of the hotel offers a panoramic view of the Xiangjiang Happy City and Changsha’s city skyline. The destination bar is the ideal menu for pre-dinner drinks, after-hours cocktail or a gathering with friends; and
– The Salon which will continue a tradition that started at The Langham, London since 1865 – English afternoon tea. Guests may indulge in a bespoke version of the afternoon tea experience where specialty teas are served, accompanied by delicate savoury and sweet delicacies created by the talented pastry team.
