Upon entering the hotel, I was immediately immersed in the cultural heritage of Suzhou. Every corner is meticulously designed, showcasing a subtle and contemporary Chinese style.

As I stepped into the hotel, my attention was drawn to an enormous lantern. It cleverly incorporates scroll elements, not only adding a warmth reminiscent of returning home but creates a unique, ritualistic atmosphere, as if to convey the message: "There is always a light left on for you".

Suzhou's iconic elements — meandering rivers, distinctive shapes and meticulous details of traditional Chinese courtyards — are all reflected in the interior design of the hotel.

Inside the guest rooms, there are additional delightful surprises. The Chinese-style folding screens serve as standout elements with versatile applications throughout the space. A set of French doors connects the bathroom and bedroom, ensuring well-lit bathroom spaces while maintaining privacy.

The bathroom cabinet exudes the elegance of fine furniture, providing a luxurious ambience. Indulging in a bath becomes a rejuvenating experience to wash away the fatigue of the day.

The hotel's culinary offerings proved to be a delightful surprise. Jin Jing Ge, the hotel's signature Chinese restaurant, boasts the expertise of chef Wang Yong from Jin Sha, a Michelin-starred restaurant in Hangzhou as a consultant, with Zhang Xiaocheng serving as the executive Chinese chef. Together, they skillfully reinterpret the essence of Jiangnan cuisine, presenting a menu of fresh and creative dishes.

The design of Jin Jing Ge is inspired by the concept of the "Poetry of Mist and Rain", with the essence of a Chinese garden as its foundational design principle. Dining here becomes a harmonious experience, delighting both the palate and the eyes.

Yun He, the all-day dining restaurant, introduces a unique pan-Chinese dining experience. The diverse range of dishes is not only extensive but meticulously crafted, offering a gastronomic feast with each visit.

Beyond relaxation, the hotel offers myriad leisure activities, from cycling and sailing to jogging, creating a new haven for sports enthusiasts. The establishment of a sailing club allows guests to leisurely explore the scenic beauty of Jinji Lake aboard a sailboat.

During this winter stay in Suzhou, the hotel has left a lasting impression. Its charm beckons me to return in every season, inviting me to savor the beauty that each season provides throughout the year.
