Alila to Open in Wuzhen on the 1st November 2018

China's 1300-year old water own dubbed the "Venice of the East"

Alila's third property in China, will open this November in Wuzhen. Located just an hour’s drive from Hangzhou and 1.5 hours from Shanghai, Alila Wuzhen is a 5-minute drive from the famous Wuzhen Water Town. Inspired by Wuzhen’s maze of quiet canals and ancient alleyways, Alila Wuzhen is a modern interpretation of the water town’s design lineage with 125 generously appointed suites, villas and pool villas - all wrapped around private courtyards and intertwining waterways in a tranquil setting.

Guests can immerse themselves in the picturesque beauty and charm of Wuzhen’s 1300-year-old water town. The beauty of the water town is best explored through self-discovery. The signature route includes a scenic walking tour through the ancient Grand Canal, the famed Wine Distillery and Indigo Fabric Workshop. The Alila Wuzhen 'Watertown' Package offers a choice of the 'Old' vs the "New" Experience where guests may choose to enjoy a free & easy excursion to the ancient water town* with complimentary car transfers; OR guests may choose to experience a mini test drive of the NIO ES8, China's version of the Tesla to explore the new Wuzhen. For more of the Alila themed excursions, guests can book additional activities with Alila Wuzhen’s concierge team to enjoy the local Shadow Play, Water Market and Bamboo Pole Performance on a canal tour to maximise their stay.
