Fuchun Resort Hangzhou is designed like a traditional Song Dynasty structure. It was inspired by local artist Huang Gongwan’s 13th-century scroll painting A Dwelling in the Fuchun Mountains, a traditional Chinese landscape whose images are accurately reflected in the hotel’s surroundings. The hotel’s design style is traditional Chinese with a contemporary spin and elements of Balinese design, but simple. Nothing is flashy here; the steps that run between the three floors are sleek gray concrete. In the lobby, dark wooden pillars gleam in the entryway, and colorful contemporary Chinese art from Taiwan hangs on the walls. The massive canvases act as statement pieces. In the rooms is elegant, sturdy dark wooden furniture — the comfortable mattresses, dressed in crisp white bedding, rest on a wooden platform built into the wall; in the suites, the dining table is surrounded by wooden chairs. The Hangzhou hotel is designed so that nearly all spaces have windows so you can enjoy the gorgeous natural surroundings — namely the rolling tea plantations and the lake.
