The Four Seasons chain is renowned for its opulence and luxury, and the Four Seasons at West Lake certainly doesn’t break from this mould. Nestled at the verdant edges of Hangzhou's West Lake, the Four Seasons complex offers spectacular views onto Hangzhou’s most astounding attraction.
One of the best hotels available in the West Lake area, Four Seasons at West Lake exudes grandeur and style at every turn. Pagoda-style architecture is decked out in sumptuous Chinese furniture, ornaments and soft furnishings, both traditional and modern, creating a space which is both cosmopolitan and distinctly of its Hangzhou location.
A space of pure indulgence, visit the spa to arrange a relaxing treatment from a huge selection. Try their signature, two-hour 'Eternal Beauty of the Lotus' facial treatment for a real treat.
As perfect for families as it is for those wishing for a more intimate couple’s getaway, the Four Seasons offers personal touches to make you feel like the experience is catered specifically to you and your needs. Children enjoy complimentary child-sized bathrobes, toiletries and specific menus, and there are countless activities to amuse and delight, such as walks in the garden, swimming, and playing at the outdoor play area. If an evening to yourself is on the cards, the hotel can even arrange babysitting.
Choose from eleven dining rooms surrounding the garden lagoon, making the extravagant splendour of the hotel available to you on a more intimate level. Choose between the two dining options - Jin Sha and WL Bistro. At Jin Sha, enjoy elevated Chinese gastronomy, whilst WL offers pan-Asian flavours in a light-flooded room perfect for a lazy lunch.
For spiritual nourishment, make the most of Hangzhou’s Buddhist history.
