Zen Hot Spring Hotel, Yunfu
The Sixth Excellent Architecture Creation Award of Guangdong Province
323 guest rooms
Located in the Sixth Patriarch Huineng’s Hometown, Longshan Scenic Area, in Xinxing Town, Yunfu, Guangdong Province, Zen Hot Spring Hotel contains five-star resort hotel, natural hot spring zone and international conference center, and has over 300 guestrooms. The planning and design of Zen Hop Spring Hotel fully respect the local geomancy and context. The entrance of main hotel lobby and square in the south are continuation of Sixth Patriarch Mirror Square, Platform Sutra Building and Longshan Guoen Temple central axis. The lucid and elegant lotus pond on both sides of the axis becomes a natural background of the Square. Looking northward along the axis, one will see six groups of courtyard-style buildings scattered quietly and generously, oozing the Zen culture and modern oriental charm. The axis extends further northward to the natural garden landscape in open-air hot spring zone and boutique hotel zone, drawing people’s attention far into the distant maintains. Such a spatial arrangement introduces aura of the Sixth Patriarch’s hometown Longshan to the site and buildings, integrating nature with man. Built at the other side of the lake, the boutique hotel overlooks the main hotel lobby and has exclusive entrance. Thus another main landscape axis and passage are established. 23 boutique guestrooms nestle leisurely beside the streams, in bamboo groves, by the Ming Lake and on grass slope, showcasing the positioning of this top-end resort.
