Hotel in Xishuangbanna / OAD

This secluded and tranquil hillside resort in Yunnan, China, owes its subtle and elegant design to OAD?s inherent understanding of local culture and geographic position. Competent combination of materials, colors and architectural solutions create a dramatic effect. Dark wood, warm ivory walls, stone or wooden floors, and a well-balanced architecture, together with large pools and finely manicured landscapes are a testament to the idealistic goals of the resort.

There is a constant dialog with the local vernacular architecture and it is best seen in the hotels upper floors and roofs that merge the local materials, roof tiers, along with outward slanted walls and posts for a locally inspired design. The architecture of the guestroom wings is more contemporary but still presents a relaxed attitude about it. It is this blend of soft contemporary and local architecture that exemplifies the success of the resort.
