Tsingpu Yangzhou Retreat

Tsingpu Yangzhou Retreat | China

The Vibe: Poetry in brick.

The Area: A 20-minute walk from Yangzhou’s Slender West Lake, which gets its name from its shape. Along the lake are fine examples of elegant traditional architecture, with some of the structures being built over the lake. 

The DNA: Tsingpu Yangzhou Retreat is set in a neglected warehouse. Rooms and public spaces are distributed  in a calm grid of low-slung grey-bricked pavilions, courtyards and internal decorative pools that call to mind, without any hint of cliché, traditional hutong houses. An all-inclusive regime includes a buffet or an American breakfast, dinner of Huaiyang cuisine at the restaurant and drinks throughout the day.  There is a large number of public spaces – dedicated to an equally large number of activities and experiences, including an art gallery, a theatre and a tea house.

Suite-Me-Up: The 20 rooms, including 1 suite are calm oases lined with terrazzo, white oak, walnut and steel, and dressed with specially commissioned furniture and lighting. All rooms come with air conditioning and heating, an electric kettle, a hairdryer, complimentary toiletries and slippers.
