Wutai Mountain Marriott Hotel
CallisonRTKL’s design for this resort, sited among the famed Wutai Mountains of central China, resulted in a modern luxury destination that complements the region’s Buddhist temples.
Two hundred rooms, a full-service spa, convention center, three restaurants, swimming pools, a helipad and 34 private mountain villas are contained within three zones: one for the resort, another for the private villas, and a third comprised of the serene landscape that ties the property together. The design merges eastern and western influences. Formal alignment and view orientation are employed to highlight the natural beauty of the landscape while maintaining a sense of secluded luxury.
