Wanda Vista gives back to so­ci­ety through en­gage­ment

China Daily European Weekly - - SHENYANG SPECIAL - By ZHUAN TI zhuanti@chi­nadaily.com.cn

Min­gling with the peo­ple sits high on the agenda of a ho­tel in Shenyang, cap­i­tal of North­east China’s Liaon­ing prov­ince.

Wanda Vista Shenyang, as the first lux­ury ho­tel founded and man­aged by Wanda Ho­tels and Re­sort in North­east China, has be­come syn­ony­mous with ac­tive and fre­quent en­gage­ment in so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties.

Since its es­tab­lish­ment in 2013, it has paid regular vis­its to char­ity in­sti­tu­tions and is al­ways in­volved in the Wanda Chil­dren Foun­da­tion, a fund­ing pro­gram ini­ti­ated by the group com­pany.

The ho­tel’s man­age­ment said those ef­forts show its com­mit­ment to giv­ing back to so­ci­ety, which is the phi­los­o­phy of Wanda Group as a whole.

Last year, the ho­tel was in­vited to par­tic­i­pate in a food festival or­ga­nized by Liaon­ing Uni­ver­sity to share Chi­nese food and cul­ture with its in­ter­na­tional stu­dents.

The ho­tel’s ex­ec­u­tive Chi­nese food chef, Wu Guo­hui, and his team not only demon­strated tra­di­tional Chi­nese food but also or­ga­nized a ses­sion for in­ter­na­tional stu­dents to try their hands at cook­ing Chi­nese food them­selves.

Syn­tio Camil­leri, the ho­tel’s gen­eral man­ager, said the ho­tel would ex­tend its ef­forts to ex­pand its cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity pro­grams on cam­pus, which would en­able it to in­ter­act di­rectly with stu­dents.

Camil­leri, who was born in Aus­tralia and later moved to Malta, said his ho­tel would strive to of­fer the best ser­vice to so­ci­ety and join hands with lo­cal peo­ple to open up a new chap­ter in Shenyang’s hos­pi­tal­ity in­dus­try.
