Welcoming visitors into the Xihai Valley, The Xihai boasts a modern feel with unique local influences.

There are a number of fantastic restaurants serving both delicious local Anhui dishes and delicacies from other regions, plus professionally executed Western dishes for those who prefer. An extensive breakfast buffet is provided every day, with a range of local and continental options, fresh fruit and baked goods.
You can spend your evenings sampling local beverages at the coffee shop, teahouse or bar, or party the night away at the disco, perhaps even trying a spot of karaoke! Alternatively, the games room offers the opportunity to try out Mahjong, or simply show off your skills in chess or poker. Rejuvenate the body and soul with a professional in-house massage, or a treatment at the highly-rated salon.
It is, of course, the surrounding area that is a primary draw for many guests. The Xihai is strategically located for those looking to explore, as it is just a 15-minute walk from the Yuping Cable Car, 0.9 miles from the serene Huangshan Hot Spring and a 20-minute walk from the popular Buxian Bridge.
