Designed by Belgian native David T’Kint of HBA, a worldwide leader in hospitality interior design, the 187-room hotel retains a distinct Asian style with aspects of Chinese design. Fengshui principles have been applied throughout, giving the hotel a very soothing appearance and a tranquil atmosphere. The idea of the design is to bring the beauty of Chinese and Asian culture to Belgium. “We do our utmost to ensure guests have a very pleasing and relaxing stay. It’s not busy visually, so it provides just the right environment to recuperate and relax in our large spaces,” explains general manager Ruprecht Schmitz.
