Situated within a protected Rainforest Zone in the hills of south-central Hainan Island, this 350-room 5-star Carlson Hotel embodies a tropical fusion of modern and local architectures cradling indoor and outdoor spa and pool facilities in a garden that is a direct extension of the rainforest.
The tall entrance lobby is centred on a 3 storey high outdoor court with views out to the rainforest garden, whilst each wood-accented room has a balcony that opens looks out to the rainforest and is naturally cross-ventilated to an exterior corridor that itself has views of the forest.
