As the ancient saying goes, “In the universe, there is heaven; on earth, there is Hangzhou.” Set along the banks of the fabled West Lake, our Forbes five-star Hotel is a tranquil enclave woven with ponds, courtyards surrounding picturesque Chinese gardens, willow trees and mist-covered lagoons. Wake to views of mountain peaks, ancient temples rising from the greenery or the very waters that have enchanted poets, explorers and emperors for centuries. Start with a cup of Longjing tea in our Lobby Lounge before picking up your bicycles and heading out to explore the city, then come back for a soothing treatment in our chinoiserie-filled Spa, followed by dinner in one of Jin Sha’s private-dining rooms.
