A Beijing-based architecture firm has transformed a historic mansion into an epic place of refuge for holidaymakers. The boutique Wuyuan Skywells hotel is the perfect destination for those with an appreciation for the ancient. The 300-year-old building’s traditional features are at the forefront of the design, with the timber frame, brick and clay walls making up the ornate interior.
However, that doesn’t mean that you’re missing out on the modern amenities you come to expect from a luxurious hotel. With 14 rooms and suites, a formal hall, library, yard, welcoming bar and restaurant, the old world charm of China’s Jiangxi province is infused throughout.
