The resort’s design includes traditional multi-story folk houses and an open bamboo-lined courtyard and foyer. The interiors will combine contemporary and traditional design with dark wood furnishings, marble floors and soft thick carpets complemented by the Shu embroidery, brocades and lacquer art craft.

For dining, the property will have five culinary venues. Chinese delicacies can be found at Jin Yao Xuan; Bai Yun offers authentic Cantonese food; international favorites will be available at Ming Yue; the Qing Feng lobby and cigar bar will offer Chinese and Western teas, coffee and light snacks; and the Pool Bar will offer light meals.
