Grand Hyatt Xi’an takes reference from the spirit of the Silk Road and reinterpret into the elegant contemporary interiors of the hotel.
The theme begins in the double-height lobby where patterned timber walls form wing-like motifs and a large feather-like sculptural feature extends ten meters from the floor to the ceiling, lit from below.
The lobby’s bubble lifts are wrapped in curved laser-cut metal screens with images depicting ancient Chinese palaces. An extravagant curved staircase leading to the function rooms sets the scene for a grand entrance by evoking the motion of desert sand dunes.
The Chinese restaurant takes you to an Oasis with stylized trees placed around the restaurant and ruby-like pomegranate screen used as dividers in the ala carte area to create intimacy for dine-in guests.
In the guest rooms, LTW selected vibrant colors together with varying shades of ochre, off-white and tan to complement the upholstered furniture, timber walls and millwork. Referencing the hotel’s Silk Road theme, Chinese pavilions are etched onto headboards and panels.
