May 17, 2013 Kempinski Suzhou opened its doors in Suzhou, right between the marvelous Jinji Lake and Dushu Lake in May 2008. This year, Kempinski Suzhou is commemorating the milestone of its first 5 years with a series of anniversary celebrations, dedicated to the local and international communities, in appreciation for their enormous support.
The 5th anniversary celebration party, in conjunction with the opening ceremony of the second Maifest was successfully held on May 16, 2013 in spite of the weather. Both local and international corporate guests, government officials, media along with other honored guests were invited to enjoy the impressive party in lakeside garden, providing a great way for guests to rediscover why Kempinski Suzhou is one of the most celebrated hotels in the past five years.
Kempinski Suzhou has won numerous awards to date, including “China’s Best 100 Hotels” from Travel + Leisure; “Best Luxury Hotel in China” from the 21st Century Herald, “Best MICE Hotel” from Timeout, and our signature outlet, Paulaner Brauhaus has been leading the trend among all the Western restaurants, being voted as “Best 50 Restaurants in China” from Tatler for the last 3 years.
With its prestigious location and authentic hospitality, the hotel has accommodated a great number of celebrities, like the Lee Hsien Loong, Prime Minister of Singapore, Feng Xiao Gang, the famous movie director, to name but a few. In addition, as one of the most sophisticated off-site event providers, Kempinski Suzhou has worked its magic on numerous high profile events, including The State Conference between China and Singapore, The Elite Forum of Suzhou and Luxury Exhibition Suzhou.
These recognitions demonstrate the hotel’s consistent dedication to providing its guests nothing but the best in all aspects of hospitality, and carrying on the unique identity of the Kempinski.
“Kempinski Suzhou has experienced 5 years of success. The honor and pride that accompany its accomplishments are due to its dedicated management and staff, and in no small measure, the strong support from owner, corporate partners and media. Kempinski is one of the oldest European Luxury hotel companies which can look back on a long lasting history since 1897 and who is famous for its unique European Flair. I wish Kempinski Suzhou to go a long way and become a central part of this heritage,” Said by Mr.Michael.Henssler, the President of Kempinski China.
