Jixian Pavillion in West Lake at twilight, Hangzhou, China
Tea Boutique Hotel, Hangzhou
- Modern hotel with tree-dotted facade
- Stylish, elegant and minimal rooms replete with amenities
- A stone’s throw from the bus station yet a haven of quiet
The Tea Boutique Hotel in Hangzhou is bursting with personality and charm. From the bamboo peeking from each balcony of the hotel’s facade to the complimentary tea, this hotel is designed to nurture and welcome.
After a day on your feet exploring the fantastic and historical landmarks dotted around the vicinity, head back to the hotel. If you need to burn off some steam, head to the fitness centre, or ask the hotel to arrange on-site activities for you - they offer both hiking and cycling. If you’re rightfully exhausted after all your adventuring, however, relax and unwind, treating yourself to a facial or a massage in the spa. Then head back to your sun-dappled room and read a book, plan what excursions tomorrow will bring, or utilise the free Wi-Fi to make everyone at home feel jealous of your once-in-a-lifetime trip!
The hotel’s style carries through to a smart restaurant onsite, all dark, polished wood and sweeping curves, serving up top-level Chinese cuisine.
West Lake, Hangzhou’s premier attraction, is only a 25 minute walk away. This UNESCO heritage-recognised garden complex site is full of temples, pagodas and artificial lakes. West Lake has inspired garden design (as well as poets and artists) across the continent and beyond for more than 2000 years.
Tea Boutique Hangzhou is the place to choose if you value style. Stripped back of trinkets and glitz, the hotel’s interior is designed to combine natural wood, artful lighting and a generous use of space. Dotted with greenery, the hotel brings a sense of balance between the outside and the in. The complimentary loose-leaf teas and sumptuous toiletries are a lavish luxury, making us feel well taken-care-of.
