Alila Anji is thrilled to announce that it has been listed as one of the ‘Best Resorts of the Year’ in Condé Nast Traveler China’s prestigious Gold List 2019. This is the second year the resort has made it to the Gold List, which this year included a handpicked selection of only 16 hotels representing the very best in the Greater China region.
Surrounded by the beauty and tranquility of bamboo groves and white tea plantations, with a majestic view overlooking Tian Fu Lake, Alila Anji is an exceptional choice for an unforgettable holiday. What makes it even more so is the unique variety of crafted experiences it offers – for families, romantics, nature lovers as well as wellness and adventure seekers.
“To personally receive the award on behalf of the team at the recent Condé Nast awards ceremony was truly an achievement for our 3-year-young resort and China’s first Alila property. The Gold List not only represents the Oscars of the travel industry, but also reflects the voices of the readers on the definition of luxury travel, dedication to personalized service and constant artisanship. The entire team at Alila Anji works extremely hard to ensure every guest goes home with wonderful memories,” explained Jack Widagdo, General Manager of Alila Anji.
Guests can now enhance their holiday at this Gold List resort with these latest packages and experiences:
Take to the sky for a private 15-minute journey in a Cirrus SR-20 monoplane or a Robinson R44 helicopter. Choose a scenic sightseeing tour, taking in the full panoramic beauty of the countryside, or experience a series of heart-stopping thrills such as the sensation of weightlessness in the air and a low altitude pass just meters above the ground.
The 2-night Sky Safari package is priced at CNY 4,980 nett or approximately USD 721 for two persons on weekdays and CNY 5,280 nett or approximately USD 737 for two persons on Friday and Saturday. Valid till 30 June 2019 (excluding blackout dates: 7 – 9 June).

MINI HOTELIER EXPERIENCE
While mum and dad enjoy some quiet time, kids can have fun being Mini Hoteliers. They’ll get to go behind the scenes and spend time with our bartender or chef, learning to shake up the perfect mocktail or shape and bake some delicious goodies in the kitchen.
Feel like royalty as you are pampered simultaneously by two therapists, their hands gliding over your body in a synchronized dance of gentle Balinese-style strokes to relieve muscle tension and restore balance. Short of time? Experience the deeply relaxing results of a two-hour treatment in one doubly indulgent hour. It’s beyond blissful!
DAY SPA VILLA
The Day Spa Villa is designed as the ultimate couple’s hideaway, offering a spa indulgence for two in an intimate sanctuary of privacy with an amazing lake view. A blend of romance, relaxation and rejuvenation, it is the perfect experience to share with your special someone. Price is from CNY 2,980++ or approximately USD 432++ per couple for a 3-hour experience (actual treatment is 2 hours), including sparkling wine and sweets.
In the first week of June, Alila Anji will be hosting a Wellness Week conducted by Shanghai-based sound healing and yoga master Ms. Chai, which invites you to focus on your wellbeing, clear your mind and restore balance. Experience profound relaxation as your mind and body attune to a renewed feeling of harmony, and the flow of vital energy is enhanced to promote self-healing.
Cycling or hiking in Anji‘s serene, green countryside and fresh clean air is both relaxing and invigorating. Simply put on some comfortable walking shoes or rent one of our mountain bikes, and bring along Alila Snacks To Go for your refreshment as you explore off the beaten track. Try our 11 fit-stop stations along the route for an extra workout while basking in the bamboo forest air. Or simply stop by at the resort’s own white tea plantations for photo opportunities. If you are game for more of a challenge, test your aim on Alila Anji’s very own archery range. There are even archery games for ‘little shooters’, making this a great activity the whole family can enjoy. For larger groups, why not try Alila Anji’s counter strike in the form of laser tag. Both outdoor and indoor options are available.
Whether on a quiet solo or couple’s retreat, or a fun family holiday, Alila Anji adds that surprisingly different element to elevate your stay.
