Two tall Oriental-inspired wooden screens flanked the stairway, leading down from the first floor, in elegant style upon guests’ arrival.
At the inviting reception facing the water courtyard, an impressive three-dimensional mirror centerpiece on the wall presents a sophisticated touch. Guests will step into expansive spa treatment rooms which feature warm welcoming interiors with modern wood theme and soothing earthy tones. Named after precious gemstones, each room is infused with black-and-white sketches depicting Tianjin’s historic culture and Asian-inspired amenities to exude a relaxing ambience.
