Due to open in May at the foot of the Emei mountains in Sichuan province (a World Heritage and World Culture site), the 32 rooms are panda-fied to within an inch of their lives: cuddly toys, wallpaper, bedside tables, it’s all there. If that's not enough, each room also throws in a theme: “tea culture”, “paper-cutting”, “car theme” and more. The staff member (we presume) posing in full-on panda costume in the room photos is giving us a case of the heebie-jeebies though, and word is that there will be people in panda costumes roaming the hotel.
For those wanting to see some real pandas up close, there is a breeding centre with captive-born pandas a two-hour drive from the hotel in Chengdu. A Panda Mini room starts at 688RMB ($110), with the European Suite at 2388RMB ($384).
