The hotel features 18 guestrooms and 25 suites decorated in burnished clay tile and exposed wood beams. Guestrooms feature polished tile floors among a combined living-and-sleeping area arranged in intricate window screens, traditional paneling and wooden lounge furnishings with chunky upholstered cushions in subdued colors of burnt gold and creamy white. The suites are lavish and large, with individually designed spaces offering secluded daybeds, cushy reading chairs and dramatic views of the surrounding landscape. The resort is home to three full- service restaurants including Naoki, a French-inspired Japanese eatery overlooking a central courtyard. At the top end of the dining spectrum is the Chinese Restaurant, cooking up traditional staples like Peking Duck and Cantonese cuisine. A state-of-the-art spa offers a rejuvenating escape with nine fully furnished treatment rooms offering a mix of Eastern body treatments and Western-style procedures.
