Design Worldwide Partnership (dwp) has marked its presence in hospitality design with the Urban Oasis by Club Med Hotel in Hangzhou. This project represents a significant chapter in luxury hospitality design and demonstrates dwp’s commitment to innovative and artistic architecture. “This project allows us to explore new design dimensions, offering a unique identity for Club Med and Hangzhou,” noted Mingzhong Song, Managing Director of dwp’s Shanghai studio.

Located in the lush green setting of Longwu in Hangzhou, famous for its Longjing Tea, the Urban Oasis by Club Med Hotel aims to introduce a new dimension of luxury in the area. This five-star hotel in Longwu combines luxury with cultural elements.

Club Med, known for its all-inclusive resort concept, presents the Urban Oasis Hotel as a fresh urban leisure resort brand. Just a 40-minute drive from Hangzhou East Railway Station, the hotel blends business and leisure, cultural tourism, and relaxation.

“The Urban Oasis is more than a hotel; it’s a blend of historical charm and modern luxury,” said Ms. Rhoda Peng, dwp’s Business Development Manager for China. “We sought to integrate the Southern Song Dynasty’s essence with today’s luxury and comfort.”

The hotel’s design, both architectural and interior, honors the Southern Song Dynasty. The design philosophy aims to create a city sanctuary that offers peace and elegance.

The Urban Oasis boasts 300 guest rooms and offers a variety of facilities, including a ballroom, conference rooms, diverse dining options, a tea lounge, a gym, a swimming pool, and children’s activities. Club Med has designed these facilities for different preferences and needs.
