Design-forward oasis of low-slung brick pavilions and scenic outdoor spaces near Yangzhou’s Slender West Lake

The Lowdown

Hutongs (alleyways lined with courtyard homes) have long served as petite urban oases across China’s megacities. So when the Shanghai-based starchitects Lyndon Neri and Rosanna Hu were tapped to re-imagine a site already studded with small lakes and abandoned warehouses, they decided to pay tribute to these iconic dwellings. The final product is an intriguing, grid-like maze of walls and pathways threading together a series of existing courtyards and gardens. Guest rooms, meanwhile, are their own architectural statements with an elegant, all-natural dress code—think dark woods and stones and meditative salt-and-pepper bathtubs. To be fair, though, you’ll probably be doing a fair share of your soul-searching outside. (We especially love the landscaped tea garden.) Afterwards, ditch the introspection at the restaurant, where mingling is highly encouraged thanks to a long communal table perfect for feasting on multi-course meals spotlighting organic local delicacies like deep-fried Mandarin fish and boiled prawns with soy sauce.

In the Area

Yangzhou, a two-hour flight from Beijing, is a cultural hotbed where you’ll find many of its Qing Dynasty-era architectural standouts on the pretty periphery of Slender West Lake, a man-made body of water that draws hordes of local and international tourists each year. For the best town panoramas, trek up Xiaojin Hill or walk along 24 Bridge, named for the number of parapets it contains. Foodies will want to take a bite out of Yangzhou’s robust dumpling scene. The watery city is best known for its aromatic, crab roe-stuffed pouches—best wolfed down at Ye Chun, a bare-bones teahouse that dates back to 1877.
