Rising from the shores of this tranquil lake surrounded by mountains blanketed with verdant forest, the resort architecture carefully steps up the slope, and along the natural contours, allowing a reduction in the mass appearance to respectfully embrace the environment. Coupling this with the inspiration from Chinese garden pavilions and mountain resorts worldwide, the end affect is of a more intimate luxury hotel design setting not necessarily associated with a 350 key hotel. Panoramic lake views from within are abundant. The lobby’s grand gable window reaches out to the lake. One guest tower, reminiscent of a lighthouse, houses the Presidential Suite.
