The historic tea culture of Chengdu weaves its way through this contemporary hotel, set on the site of a former imperial palace. The Ritz-Carlton Chengdu overlooks the Tianfu Square and its dancing fountain in the heart of the city, which is undergoing a transformation into a young and trend-setting centre of technology. Chengdu is known as the birthplace of the unique gongfu tea culture, and guests can spend an afternoon picking tea leaves at Mengding Mountain or enjoy an afternoon tea in the Lobby Lounge.

There are 353 luxurious guest rooms and suites, with each room displaying opulent contemporary décor with walk-in wardrobes, lavish bathrooms and views overlooking the city. On the Club level floors, all rooms and suites also benefit from exclusive services such as a personal butler, private check-in and complimentary access to the Club Lounge.

Chengdu is Asia's first UNESCO City of Gastronomy and its local specialities include an exotic array of unique spices and fiery Szechuan pepper. Guests can enjoy these authentic flavours in the hotel's fine dining restaurant, Li Xuan, where modern interpretations of Cantonese and Szechuan cuisine are juxtaposed by décor inspired by the ancient Shu civilisation. Alternatively, SPICES all-day dining features many international cuisines with live cooking stations, while FLAIR offers Asian-style tapas and handmade sushi during the day before bursting into life with live music and DJs as night falls.

Other hotel facilities include a beauty salon, state of the art fitness centre with sweeping city views and the Ritz-Carlton Spa which offers a selection of traditional tea-themed treatments inspired by the ancient Silk Road.
