Buyer: Hard Rock International announced the opening of Hard Rock Hotel Dalian, jointly presented with Luneng Group, at Dalian Golden Pebble Beach Tourist Resort, Liaoning, China.
“Rooted in our musically-inspired culture, Hard Rock Hotel Dalian provides signature hospitality, luxury accommodations, and unforgettable dining and entertainment, against the backdrop of scenic Golden Pebble Beach,” Dale Hipsh, Senior Vice President – Hotels, commented. “We could not accomplish this remarkable experience without the tremendous support of Luneng Group, and the Hard Rock Hotel Dalian team led by General Manager David Cuddon, that worked tirelessly to achieve this opening during an unprecedented time in history.”
The hotel opened its doors today with the unveiling of the iconic guitar sculpture on Golden Pebble Beach, followed by an electrifying performance from a Hard Rock Band as the iconic grand finale. Distinguished guests from Hard Rock International, Luneng Group, Dalian Municipal Government, Dalian Golden Pebble Beach Administrative Committee and media all gathered at the opening ceremony to witness and to celebrate this exciting new addition to the brand.
The health and safety of our guests and team members remains our top priority, as such, the hotel will open in compliance with all local regulations, government guidelines and Hard Rock’s new SAFE + SOUND program. Developed by a team of hospitality experts in collaboration with worldwide health and sanitisation specialists, the SAFE + SOUND program is a series of carefully developed protocols ensuring the highest standards of hygiene and cleanliness. These practices are being implemented across the brand’s portfolio and includes a 272-point inspection upon opening.
Hard Rock Hotel Dalian is the brand’s second hotel in China, after Hard Rock Hotel Shenzhen, opened in 2017. This new hotel is conveniently located in the Golden Pebble Beach Tourist Resort, within walking distance to Discoveryland Theme Park and Luneng Meilihui Commercial Complex. The hotel features 210 rooms and suites designed to provide an oasis of relaxation, complemented by balconies and stunning views of the beach and the Yellow Sea.
Offering a unique dining experience, Hard Rock Hotel Dalian features SESSIONS, the signature all-day dining restaurant, featuring contemporary and around-the-world flavors. The lobby bar GMT +8, inspired by time zones from Hard Rock Hotel locations around the world, provides an energetic vibe all-day and is amplified with live music performances in the evenings. The hotel also features elegant banquet halls and multi-functional conference rooms for various events – be it a bustling and successful business gathering, or a music-infused, romantic wedding where the newlyweds take centre stage. In addition, the hotel is an ideal venue for outdoor events – from the terrace at Rock Royalty Lounge on the second floor, to various spaces such as the breathtaking banquet lawn. Meeting and event planners and guests can certainly find inspiration for any special occasion.
