Kempinski Hotel Haitang Bay Sanya awarded Best wood art design
“This is the first Chinese style resort property with traditional Fengshui layout in modern setting,” said Cao Jing-lou, the original director of cultural relic protection of the Palace Museum. “The hotel faces South China Sea on one side and Longling Mountains as its backdrop, a rarity in the world with a combination of ancient and modern Chinese art-de-vivre. The wood crafted ceiling in the hotel lobby replicates a sense of majestic and royalty in ancient China, truly this can be the perfect example of combining Chinese design in newer hotels.”
From the palatial-style lobby ceiling with local Li imprints, to the use of rare Rose Wood and real gold, Lu Guang-zheng, China’s famous wood art master, spent three years to design and completed Dongyang wood works throughout the hotel with the helping hands of no less than 600 artists using 300 tons of Silk Wood, 3000 tons of Rose Wood and 300 kilograms of gold.
“Kempinski Hotel Haitang Bay Sanya is not just another beach resort, but is also a living example of Rose Wood art ‘museum’,” said Wu Bing-liang, Vice President of China Art Craft Association. “Dongyang woodcarvings are hailed as national treasures and Kempinski displays many of them.”
