We also take pride in knowing that not a single new tree has been cut down to build our hotel. Wood recycling is the most environmentally friendly form of timber construction and an important step towards fighting deforestation and climate change. At our hotel, every roof, door, window frame and floor has been custom designed and built on site using recycled wood– mostly hundred-year-old Douglas-fir imported from Canada to China in the 19th century and recovered from dismantled houses and factories in the North of the country.
