The future thinking design complements the local vernacular with the use of local stone, wood, glass, and plaster. Additionally, metal overhangs and vast windows take into account the weather and the panorama of Dali.
Dali stone is a renowned local export and is therefore employed throughout the design aesthetics to capture the essence of the destination. An observation tower will lift visitors up to experience the view from the mountains to the valley.
Dali’s rich architectural history is realized in the design with the use of bridges for small creeks and rapids. A modern interpretation of this is realized in the lobby building as part of the guest journey.
The master planning incorporates and complements the natural meandering of stony creeks, surrounding natural forest, and lush tea gardens. These characteristics support the sense of wellness and serenity in the design.
