Marking the first Grand Hyatt Hotel in Anhui Province, China, the hotel sits atop a 55-storey skyscrapper and is designed to welcome guests with theatrical skyline views of the city.
Inspired by a romantic tale penned by Tao Yuanming, a Taoist philosopher, the hotel recreates an enchanting story of a lost fisherman finding 'Shangri-La' by accident and his journey into a mystical village.
The design of the interior is inspired from the famous Hui Pai (style) architecture of the Anhui province, where Hefei is located. Predominant use of grey and white accented with dark timber denotes the understated approach.
“Recreating a bewitching journey for the guests, Hefei weaves an intriguing tale of time and place, beautifully bridging pst, present and fantasy together.”
