Dear Guest, Just a short note about this building and our intentions. This structure surrounded by high walls was originally a school, three stories high, with six classes per floor, and at the rear (north side) three laboratories. The buildings, we are told, were built in the seventies after the worst of the anti intellectual activities of “the red guards” had ceased and some forms of education restarted. The building was constructed to high standards and its structural quality exceeds that of many European educational buildings of the period.
In this building complex we have set out to create a warm, cultural, friendly oasis where the traveler and trader, in the great tradition of silk route caravansaries, can meet to socialize, develop relationships and friendship. Also of course a destination for assignations and the pursuit of love.
To these ends we have tried in our interiors to tell a story related to the forces of trade and encounters between cultures. The transfers of cultural forms through the arts, customs, philosophies and religions are reflected in the artifacts we have selected to surround you our guests.
As you enter the first spaces, your encounter reflects the fact that we are in China and the arts and crafts refer to Chinese history, traditions and culture, We then progress through Indo – Chinese culture with artifacts from Java, Bali and Thailand to spaces dominated by Indian arts and crafts with many architectural items.
We hope that the rich, decorative environment that we create with our Asian collections, result in a warm, sensual and relaxing experience for our guests to dine, imbibe and socialize in graciously and comfortably.
