  • area / size 441,320 sqft
  • Year 2019
  • Location Xi'an, China,
  • Type Hotel,
  • HUALUXE Hotel & Resorts is IHG’s another classic work in its exciting course of reformation, and a new international luxury hotel brand tailored to Chinese guests. Relying on IHG’s world-renowned excellent management system, it’s dedicated to providing attentive and considerate services in a new definition of Chinese hospitality centering on four principles: Chinese etiquette; status recognition; rejuvenation with nature; and enabling spaces, which offers an ideal choice for business, entertainment, family reunion and friend gatherings.

    Situated at this land with rich cultural heritage, HUALUXE Xi’an Hi-Tech Zone is HUALUXE’s first hotel in West China and is positioned as an Asia-pacific flagship hotel, which pays tribute to the city of etiquette via orthodox design languages.

    The hotel entrance is secluded and keeps a low profile, with a vigorous upright pine tree welcoming the guests. Following the dim light and wandering along scattered gray hollowed-out stone walls that close off the hustle and bustle of the city, silent pine trees, lush bamboo groves and transparent glass bricks, the guests can have a fantastic experience of exploring a garden with intricate spatial pattern. This enables them to obtain inner peace without stepping out of the city, and to indulge in exploring the city of etiquette behind it.

    Passing through the deep tranquil garden, the lobby gradually appears, grand and dignified. Two magnificent doors erect on its sides, showing courtesy to respected guests. The details engraved on the doors draw inspirations from city gate bolts in ancient Xi’an, and the black wood grain is embellished by Chinese red and bronze. All of those elements innovatively reproduce the cultural heritage of the ancient city, present an archaic and solemn impression, and produce a sense of formality.

    The space features large surfaces, which are well matched with exquisite details, together creating a noble, elegant and grand ambience; besides, creative shapes fuse the modern with traditional, and are dotted throughout the space in a subtle manner. In this way, the overall space is endowed with a magnificent sense of propriety as well as modern Oriental charm.

    The guest rooms are designed in either light or dark hues, awash with elegance and warmth. The painted light-colored oak wood that maintains its original grain, comfortable cotton and linen, woolen carpets, as well as archaic weaving materials, all show natural textures and the return to simplicity. Time slows down there, and the guests can feel extremely relaxed and cozy. The delicate artworks are full of classic charm, while the exquisitely-made furniture is integration of modernity and tradition. The spaces are laid out in a magnificent and elegant manner, dotted with classic delicate details and interspersed with Chinese red and royal blue, to salute the ancient capital. Characterized by Oriental Zen ambience, elegance and nobility, the interior design provides poetic living experiences, and enables the guests to feel inner peace.

    Many designs are superficially appealing, but leave nothing lasting. However, a classic design may not catch our eye at first glance, but after experiencing it in depth we’ll be touched by its eternal charm.
