The 6-storey hotel includes a conference centre, entertainment centre, restaurants, and amenities, and is situated with int own recreation area, with tennis, golf and other outdoor leisure activities connected with the Qin Lake resort.

 The design rationale of this project is based in the contemporary interpretation of the traditional Chinese architecture. The design integrates the spirit of the Chinese traditional garden, courtyard space, sloped roof, and screen walls, with modern architectural features. The double-skin façade is inspired by the Chinese traditional window grid, and the angular form of the building is a modern transformation of the typical Chinese sloped roof.
