WTD: Looking up at the mountain sky,Tranquility overlooking the water,Walk in the valley surrounded by green trees,Running in a swaying field,In magnificence and silence,Turned into a swimming fish, a flying bird.
In the busy and stressful contemporary life, people’s attitude towards travel is no longer limited to checking in to a certain destination. More often, we are looking for a way to relax both physically and mentally. The healing of the mind becomes more and more important.
Unlike general city hotels, resort hotels pay more attention to human participation and feelings. Usually we choose resort hotels, on the one hand, to experience the local regional culture, on the other hand, we hope to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the city and relax our spirit and soul. Compared to simply staying and resting, we are more willing to stay in the outdoor space of the resort hotel and enjoy the leisurely holiday time. Therefore, the landscape also plays a greater bearing role in the hotel space-for the guests, the landscape is The key elements that produce attraction, immersion and stay; for hotels, the landscape is also an important factor affecting the premium of guest rooms.
Driving from downtown Guangzhou, it takes about an hour to reach the foothills of Nankun Mountain in Zengcheng District. Not far from the Baishui Village Scenic Area, the Forest Sea Hot Spring Resort is hidden between the mountains and rivers—primitive forests and shallows. Wetland, canyon Tianchi, here are rare natural ecological resources in Guangdong. Standing in the square in front of the hotel, the largest waterfall in the country with a height of 428.5 meters-Baishuixian Waterfall, seems to be right in front of you, and it is like a rainbow.

Due to its prime location in the golden triangle center of Shenzhen, Guangzhou and Dongguan, coupled with the gift of nature, Baishui Village has become a popular holiday destination in the surrounding area. The local area also has very mature supporting construction and countless high-end resort hotels with great style. In a cluster of hotels, how to stand out and blend with the locals is the primary issue of design.
In the process of exploring the landscape resources and regional culture of the site, we were inspired by nature. We took the hot spring resources in the hotel and the surrounding waterfalls, lakes, and rivers as the common element “water” as the design entry point, and expanded the shaping of the space. Strong links with the surrounding environment.
Water, soft, invisible, like an unfettered walker, feels at ease. The hotel uses water as the theme, still water viewing, swimming in the water as a companion, which not only conveys a free and comfortable attitude, but also conforms to the characteristics of people’s water, creating a more relaxed holiday atmosphere. Feeling meditation, the waterfall in the distance, the lake nearby, and the water in the ground are all alive in the space. The water of different emotions also adds more feelings to this journey.
▼酒店设有独特水系环绕，清凉泳道贯穿整个酒店，每个客房配有独立温泉泡池 The hotel is surrounded by a unique water system, with cool swimming lanes running through the hotel, and each room is equipped with its own hot spring pool
Entering the hotel, the Southeast Asian style building adopts a two-vertical and three-horizontal planning pattern to strung the hotel spaces on both sides, welcoming guests with a solemn image. The landscape runs through the entire hotel with cool swimming lanes, and the use of water just right relieves the pressure caused by the building. The buildings reflected in the water sway with the waves, adding a bit of relaxed and lively interest. The square buildings and the meandering free water form a combination of rigidity and flexibility.
The main competitiveness of a resort hotel comes from its unique experience. Comfortable and pleasant experience is closely related to our emotions and memories. Looking back on this journey a long time later, you may gradually lose track of what the hotel’s architecture, landscape, and guest rooms are like, or remember some of the things that happened, but the mood and emotions at that time can still be fresh in your memory. Just like Tagore said: I have visited many places in the world and heard many things, but unfortunately, I have not remembered very important things, but they are attached to the leaves of the grass near the residence. A drop of dew is unforgettable.

The landscape is designed based on the different needs of different groups of people. The central water axis of the hotel is divided into two parts. If you like the excitement, you can choose the open swimming pool at the front end to experience the gathering and interactive water play experience. In addition, sinking boxes, hydrophilic platforms, water pavilion lounge chairs and other facilities are also provided A space for rest and communication. The back-end swimming pool is intertwined with paths, guest rooms, and plants. If you like quietness, you can enjoy a relaxing swimming moment here. In it, people feel comfortable physically and mentally as the space flows and swims.
▼后端以泳池联动酒店客房 The back end connects hotel rooms with the swimming pool
Because of Guangdong’s unique climate, indoor functions can be moved to the outdoors, coupled with flexible wall partitions, people can feel the nature in the house and enjoy comfort outdoors. Blurring the boundary between indoor and outdoor brings a more transparent and open spatial hierarchy and holiday atmosphere.
While the space blends, the design also considers the protection of safety and privacy. From a distance, the room directly leads to the swimming pool, and the water seems to flow indoors, forming a unique experience of being able to go into the water when you go out; closer and closer, the guest room entrance fully considers usability and privacy, which not only connects the pool, but also prevents other residents The guest strayed in. Diving into the water, the small bridge that connects the road does not affect the swimmer’s shuttle in the water; standing on the bridge, the sight of the private garden is blocked, and people in the garden can enjoy a peaceful hot spring time.
Such delicate care not only satisfies people’s pursuit of natural environment and open space, but also ensures the needs of private life, which makes people comfortable and moving. Here, even if you don’t want to swim, there is enough quiet and pleasant space for people to stop and go, and enjoy a relaxed and casual time.
Strolling in this flowing space, people are surrounded by the relaxing atmosphere of the private garden and the free atmosphere of the swimming pool. The warm sunshine and gentle water waves have become indelible memories here.
After several years of polishing and construction, Forest Sea Hot Spring Resort Hotel officially opened this year. In the process of visiting and taking pictures, we saw an endless stream of guests and experienced the regret of not being able to book a room. Fortunately, we also personally felt the unique style of the hotel and the joyful mood of people immersed in it. The original intention of design-after all, igniting romance with design is the ultimate romance of the designer.
