Allied Architects designs Langham’s resort

Boutique Design

Cordis, Dongqian Lake, Ningbo has opened, claiming its stake as the first Cordis resort by Langham Hospitality Group as well as the fifth property in the global Cordis portfolio.

Allied Architects International designed the property’s 238 guestrooms and 18 villas, taking inspiration from local villages and the natural landscape to balance the resort’s connection to the lakeside setting. The resorts’ design reflects the traditional architecture of the Zhejiang province and uses natural elements of wood, stone tiles and bamboo. Multi-tiered waterfalls, winding pathways, garden pavilions and floral beds are key design elements.

The property offers five restaurants and bars: Ming Court, affiliated with its Michelin-starred namesake in Hong Kong; all-day dining Cordis Market; stylish Bar 29° and Lobby Lounge will serve cocktails, light bites, and afternoon tea paired with exclusive local teas from Ningbo. The Lake House rounds out the outlets, offering authentic local dishes.

The resort also features events and meeting space, a spa, health club and a kids’ center.
