Cita Arsita Farani

Nanjing, the ancient capital of the Six Dynasties and the center of literature and book publishing, is welcoming the luxury brand of The Ritz-Carlton to the historic city. The Ritz-Carlton, Nanjing is situated on the uppermost floors of Deji Plaza at the central business district, less than an hour's drive to Nanjing Lukou International Airport.

Featuring 295 well-appointed rooms, including 32 spacious suites with kitchen and dining areas, the hotel's interior embodies the five fundamental elements in Chinese culture - wood, fire, earth, metal, and water. Guests staying in The Ritz-Carlton Club® rooms have 24-hour access to The Ritz-Carlton Club Lounge on the 58th floor with its panoramic views and enjoy exclusive amenities such as the signature Afternoon Tea, part of five culinary presentations throughout the day.

For an authentic tasteful experience, guests are invited to take part in the ‘Lotus Lantern Ritual’ at sunset every evening. Against a backdrop of dimmed lights and classical Chinese music, the Ladies and Gentlemen of The Ritz-Carlton, elegantly dressed in traditional attire, serve locally grown Yuhua green tea paired with bite-sized snacks. Five distinctive food and beverage outlets in the vicinity will satisfy your palate, from the fresh Nanjing taste of Pin Ning Fu, classic Cantonese fine dining at Dai Yuet Heen, the all-day dining outlet Lavandula, the Lobby Lounge, and the rooftop bar and restaurant FLAIR.

Other facilities include The Ritz-Carlton SPA, a 24-hour fitness center and yoga studio, The Ritz-Carlton Ballroom, and The Plaza Ballroom.
