Facing a lake and surrounded by mountains, the Hilton Hangzhou Qiandao Lake Resort is situated along the shores of the stunning Qiandao Lake that is known for the supreme beauty of its waters; it also has the longest shore line of all the international hotels in Qiandao Lake.
With a total design area of 56,000 square meters, the Resort consists of seven connecting buildings placed in a picturesque disorder, housing 349 guest rooms and ensuites, all of which through private balconies, overlook the wide expanse of the lake, rimmed by blue waters. The design areas include the hotel lobby/lobby bar, all day restaurant, pan-Asian restaurant, Chinese restaurant, presidential suite, conference centre, banquet hall and foyer, fitness centre, recreation centre, swimming pool, and guest room areas etc..
The Hilton Hangzhou Qiandao Lake Resort is like a piece of elegant poetry, using ‘water’ to conceive the design, such that the concept of ‘water’ is implicitly embedded in the design, with the more pattern in each design area appearing thick or light, at times rippling, at times floating, at times fluctuating, all infiltrated with tenderness and randomness. The design made use of the inclusive nature of ‘water’, covering shades of gold, red, and brown etc., highlighting its character and fashionable elements, thus arousing one’s emotions to its extreme; artistic displays in New Chinese style, modern simple European style, and Southeast Asian flavor intermingle, emitting either a heightened sensation or a crooning effect, thus creating a rich and colorful rhythm.
The use of material is meticulously chosen and varied, selecting especially precious stoneware from South East Asia, natural wood, genuine leather, elegant velvet cloth, environmentally friendly latex paint etc., placing smooth solid glass and cut glass together, with crystal jade decorating time and space, bringing in a clash of multiple patterns, forming a unique style of its own, and no longer just appealing to a modern, or classic, or Art Deco, or simple European style; such a varied style provides the hotel with multiple illusive sceneries, such that as one walks through these scenes, our cultural heritage appears to float through space with a poetic sense of beauty; and strolling along this ‘Art corridor’ provides one with a dreamlike taste of the millions of images of the arts.
