Conrad Hangzhou Tonglu

Lakeside luxury in the Hangzhou hills

Serenely situated on the edge of Fenshui Tianxi Lake, Conrad Hangzhou Tonglu is a haven of relaxation in the Hangzhou hills. The boutique retreat’s prime location nestled into the verdant foothills of the Fuchun Mountains affords it picture-perfect views of the rolling landscape reflected in the lake’s glass-like surface, a vista best enjoyed from your villa’s private patio with a steaming cup of tea in hand.

While visitors may come for the scenery, they stay to linger on sun-dappled terraces, stroll along forest paths and luxuriate on the spa-like pool deck. A simple yet effective entryway sets the scene for your relaxing retreat: A trio of cascading waterfalls beckon you down the stone pathway to a set of double doors surrounded by lush tropical foliage. As the doors swing open, you’re immediately greeted by a panoramic picture window showcasing jaw-dropping vistas that invite you to leave the rest of the world behind.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Conrad Hangzhou Tonglu’s glass-ceilinged lobby is quite the welcome. Cloudless days see the airy, open space filled with sunlight, while grey cloud cover creates a cozy vibe that invites you to relax by the large picture window and watch the fog roll down from the mountains over the lake.
  • While a lakeside fitness center is on hand, those looking to squeeze in a vacation workout might prefer a stroll along the luxury hotel’s waterfront garden path. The roughly 2.5-mile trail winds its way along the lakefront, providing a scenic alternative to your typical cardio routine.
  • A seasonal outdoor pool occupies pride of place at the Hangzhou hotel, where gorgeous views come standard. Perched on the roof, the infinity-edged beauty is a jaw-dropping spot to soak up some sun alongside those spectacular mountain and lake peeks.
  • For those who prefer to luxuriate indoors, a spa and year-round indoor pool complete with a wall of windows overlooking the lake offer plenty of ways to relax regardless of the temperamental mountain weather.
  • Conrad Hangzhou Tonglu’s 79 rooms and villas are supremely spacious, starting at a comfortable 785 square feet. All accommodations boast lake-view balconies and ample marble bathrooms. The ultra-sumptuous multi-bedroom villas up the ante with private pools and deep-soaking tubs.

The Restaurants

  • Savor a modern spin on classic Chinese fare with a helping of mountain views at Le. The marble-clad space provides a jovial atmosphere where a seasonal menu of Hangzhou and Tonglu cuisine can be enjoyed with the whole family.
  • All-day dining venue Origine serves European-inspired brasserie fare from an open kitchen for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Signatures include rotisserie-style and grilled meats with classic American steakhouse sides such as roasted root vegetables and mac and cheese.
  • The aptly named Bask is Conrad Hangzhou Tonglu’s lobby lounge. Situated under the lobby’s glass ceiling, the lounge is an airy space delivering light bites and afternoon tea under the shade of a small grove of Osmanthus trees.
  • Sit for a spell and a spirit at The Gathering. The intimate bar whips up a well-curated selection of single-malt Scottish whiskeys and international wines with a splash of spectacular views and occasional live entertainment.
