An immersion into the surroundings
This resort lies close to the Unesco-listed Tianmushan Biosphere Reserve, known for its ancient trees, valleys and mountain peaks home to rare species such as the clouded leopard. It’ll contain 160 villas and guestrooms, along with facilities including an all-day dining restaurant, a Chinese restaurant, an outdoor swimming pool and hot mineral pools, a fitness centre, the Namm Spa and two ballrooms with adjoining function rooms.
Guests will be able to spend their time on nature hikes or in arts and crafts workshops at the Tianmu Mountain Nature Centre. And the region’s reputation for ceramic glazed teacups is to be celebrated at the resort, with examples of local pottery on display.
As well as being only an hour’s drive from Hangzhou city centre, the site is just 90 minutes away from Hangzhou Xiaoshan International Airport and a 20-minute drive from a new high-speed rail station linking it with Shanghai.
