Homa Chateau in China: luxury hotel dedicated to modern art

The first Relais & Châteaux hotel has just opened in China. It is called the Homa Chateau and its bold architectural landscape, located in a preserved and mythical part of China, is creating quite a stir. Just a few kilometers from Guilin and Yangshuo and between the lush nature filled with lakes and picture perfect mountains, is Yuzi Paradise, the first site of contemporary art in Asia.  The hotel is located right in the midst of the two hundred international sculptures and fits in perfectly with its modern and unique triangular-roofed cabin covered in grass and smoked glass windows.

Since the hotel is dedicated to contemporary art, some of the house suites even resemble an art gallery.  No two of the 49 rooms are alike. Each features a unique theme and décor developed by interior designer, Tracy Wen.  Every room is a personal museum that showcases its own collection of art pieces by resident artists.  Amongst the art there are plenty of modern amenities as well such as a pool, sauna, fitness center, flat-screen TVs, and WiFi in public areas. Furthermore, you can choose to relax at one of the three “flying spas” with themes such as Forget, Melt, and One.  You can continue your relaxation by strolling through the hotel’s 1,350 acres of sculpture garden or head for a gourmet meal at their Lotus Restaurant or Wind Forest Café.

This hotel is truly an experience to enjoy with its unique and intricate design from the overall façade to the detailed brass doorknobs.  More than just design, the hotel offers excellent service and standards that match all of the Relais and Châteaux Hotels.

Background: Relais & Châteaux is an exclusive collection of the finest hotels and gourmet restaurants that was established in France in 1954. Their mission is “to spread its unique art de vivre across the globe by selecting outstanding properties with a truly unique character”. Revered as the world’s most prestigious hotel group, the criteria for becoming a member are especially stringent.  Therefore, you can expect that their first hotel in China, Homa Hotel, is no exception and is of the highest quality.
