Honk Kong —Cordis, Dongqian Lake, Ningbo opened last week, claiming its mantle as the first Cordis resort by Langham Hospitality Group as well as the fifth property in the global Cordis portfolio.

“With the beautiful grounds, stunning villas and our signature heartfelt service, we believe that Cordis Dongqian Lake will be the perfect choice for family gatherings, romantic escapades, corporate team-building and incentive trips,” adds Leser.
The 238 guest rooms and villas resort is designed by Allied Architects International whose inspiration was derived from local villages and the natural landscape to emphasize the resort’s connection to the lakeside setting. The overall design of the resort reflects the traditional architecture of Zhejiang province and uses natural elements of wood, stone tiles and bamboo. Multi-tiered waterfalls, winding pathways, garden pavilions, and floral beds are keys to the design, with intricate steps taken to preserve an idyllic setting for the guests.
The highlight of the resort is the 18 well-appointed villa complexes, all of which feature a landscaped courtyard, a two bedroom suite and four individual rooms. For the ultimate in luxury and comfort, the 1,000 sqm six-bedroom pool villa is ideal for large family gatherings or a corporate retreat.
