Vantaly：As the first resort hotel of the new KHOS by Rosewood Hotel Group, KHOS Qingyuan is located in Sankeng Town of Qingyuan, Guangdong. The weather in Qingyuan is warm and humid, with mountains and rolling hills, native forest, and karst cave and hot springs. Such vibrant environment gives birth to the rich subtropical plants and a wealth of herbs used in traditional Chinese medicine, making it a perfect place to cultivate the mind with nature’s beauty.
First time travelers to Qingyuan can walk through the rain abundant land, feel the breeze from the fields, and explore the wonderful beauty of karst cave and waterfalls. While taking an adventure in nature, one can fully enjoy a restful tour of traditional health experience at the KHOS Hotel. We have thus curated the artwork around the theme of “Cultivating the Body and Mind between the forests and springs”, to create a land of idyllic beauty for travelers to rest and recuperate.
Stepping into the mountain forest
酒店大堂 HOTEL LOBBY
Qingyuan enjoys over 70% forest coverage. Inspired by this lush verdant forest, renowned Asian artist Jeahyo Lee were commissioned to create two artworks for the hotel lobby.
During the day, the sunlight shines through the sculpture’s wood voids into the lobby, as if blocking away the complexity of the outside world to bring a natural and relaxed atmosphere into the hotel.
“I’d like the audience to come closer to my artworks and make his or her own story through touching and feeling even the inner layers of the wood. As for me, I observe how the audience reacts to my works and try to fathom how they are seen and if they elicit any emotions or impressions.”
宴会厅 BANQUET HALL
The wall artwork is inspired by the waterfall flowing down the Tianzi Hill in Qingyuan. It consists of 1248 pieces of handmade brass tiles, showing a smooth and rolling surface combined with an elegant champagne touch. It creates a softening atmosphere for the hotel guests to enjoy a pleasant banquet at the hotel.
Deep in the dense forests, appeared the eaves tiles of the village
全日餐厅 ALL DAY DINING
The wall-side cabinet of All-Day Dining restaurant presents the works of artist Zhou Jianhong, whose sculptures with its gentle curves outline the local grass finches and other mysterious plants in a light-spirited form.
The works of the table-side cabinets are filled with works from ceramic artist Lin Tianqing, whose porcelain works are abstract forms of the forest trees. Not far from them is a feature wall inspired by the traditional Lingnan village’s eaves tiles, together composing a contented dining experience for the hotel guests.
The log design and color tone with the texture of the years are in seamless contact with the hotel landscape and garden landscape, depicting a comfortable and enjoyable dining atmosphere.
Enjoy the relaxation brought by Chinese herbal medicine
首层电梯厅 & SPA水疗区域 ELEVATOR HALL & SPA
From the elevator hall to the SPA area, we have transformed the local Chinese herbal medicine Nerviliae into contemporary works of art. The extending vein of the Nerviliaes are as if spreading the soothing touch for the hotel guests to every corner of the hotel.

客房区域 GUEST ROOM
Inspired by the local ginkgo trees, the works in the guest room are made by hand-folded Japanese rice paper. They are dyed with warm and verdant colors to remind the guests of the ginko forest, as if they are napping under the ginko trees.
Enjoying the hot springs between karst cave streams
Qingyuan’s unique natural mineral hot springs gave it the reputation of “hometown of Chinese hot springs”. Surrounded by scenic hills and delicate water, the local hot springs embody the quaint simplicity of Asian romance.
A series of works inspired by Japanese dyeing fabric are presented in the semi-open space of guestroom corridors. The witty images combined with the Japanese cotton fabrics create a cozy and comforting atmosphere.
