The Summer Garden is an exquisite ensemble of ponds, hills, waterfalls and a pagoda at Yanqi Island; it covers an expanse of 40,000 sq m, three-quarters of which is water. The natural landscape of hills and open water is combined with artificial features such as waterfalls, ponds and bridges to form a harmonious ensemble of outstanding aesthetic value. As the breeze flutters, waves gleam and willows kiss the ripples of the vast water, the highlights can't be left out of any delightful scenery above.
The design of Yanqi Hotel is inspired by the Chinese philosophy "Man-Nature" coordination and the value of modern China: China-world interaction. The mountain view from the guestrooms and the view "looking out" to the marina show an intimate interaction with the natural surroundings. From the roof and the wall to the inside yard, the traditional Chinese courtyard concept plays into all the details to enhance the guest experience of space, a ray of light and the most coalescing of Yanqi Lake.
