I recently went golfing with some of my Shanghai buddies to Xiaoyangkou country again and was really pleasantly surprised, that they build a brand new hotel there. Two years ago we spend the night in a crappy local hotel, where the rooms were dirty and the local chinese were playing cards with their room door open to the hallway. This new hotel is run by an international hotel management company and even though the local chinese staff were still a bit insecure in handling foreign people, they had a very nice attitude, kept smiling and overall the service was better than we would expect in that region of China. The hotel manager took time to chat with us and explained to us that they are still in the soft-opening and service will continue to improve. the facilities are extremly nice and the Spa was a wow!! The spa is exclusively for hotel guests only and i have to say i was again really surprised to see that kind of level spa facility not only in that region but in whole of china. The food was excellent, trying to incorporate western style with local seafood. I am actually really excited to see how this area will develop, the manager told us some future development plan. They want to build another 18 holes of Golf and offer more outdoor activities. My next trip back here will not be in another two years rather in two weeks. Its a perfect weekend getaway for me and my buddies and with the hotel we can bring our kids and wifes!! The room rates are great, we got a two bed-room suite for around 1000RMB.
