    28 June 2013

    Shangri-la Qufu

    The hotel is designed based on the Confucian philosophy of Six Arts (the disciplines of Rites, Music, Archery, Chariot Racing, Calligraphy and Mathematics), creating a perfect blend of tradition and contemporary elegance.

    Chinese architecture sets the tone with the hotel’s façade designed to resemble a traditional Chinese pavilion and roofs topped by grey tiers of flying eaves. Supported by eight large pillars, the porte cochere is also shaped like a traditional Chinese pavilion.

    Shangri-la Qufu 2Upon arrival, guests will be greeted by the sight of two full-grown trees planted in the middle of the lobby, where natural daylight streams in from a glass roof. The trees are surrounded by a carpet of grass, marble seats and dark wood columns.

    Among the 211 spacious guestrooms, rooms facing the Yi River are designed with balconies offering views of the old city wall, palaces of the Temple of Confucius and the hotel’s traditional Chinese landscaped garden dotted with pavilions.

    The hotel is within walking distance of the Temple of Confucius, the Mansion of Confucius and the Cemetery of Confucius. All three are UNESCO World Heritage Cultural Sites and Qufu is one of mainland China’s 24 government-designated famous historical and cultural cities.
