“Venice of The East”
Located just an hour’s drive from Hangzhou and 1.5 hours from Shanghai, Alila Wuzhen is a 5-minute drive from the famous Wuzhen Water Town. Inspired by Wuzhen’s maze of quiet canals and ancient alleyways, Alila Wuzhen is a modern interpretation of the water town’s design lineage with 125 generously appointed suites, villas and pool villas – all wrapped around private courtyards and intertwining waterways in a tranquil setting. Heritage Inspired Design Designed by GOA, one of the prominent architectural firms in China, Alila Wuzhen’s “minimalist” aesthetics is an adaptation of the heritage buildings inherent, south of the Yangtze River. Alila Wuzhen’s architecture is a reimagination of traditional space reconstruction – of streets, lanes, courtyards and public areas – giving it new functionalities and purpose.
Alila Villas Koh Russey
“The Cambodian Riviera”
Hailed as one of the most anticipated openings, Alila Villas Koh Russey resides on its own private island in the Koh Rong archipelago. The journey from tarmac to resort takes just a 20-minute private car transfer and speedboat ride from Sihanoukville Airport. This will be brand Alila’s first resort in Cambodia, sharing the group’s philosophy of innovative design, personalized service and unique guest experiences that have made its hotels – including Alila Villas Uluwatu, Alila Seminyak, Alila Yangshuo, and Alila Fort Bishangarh – instant successes. Alila Villas Koh Russey is set to serve up pristine bays, dramatic peninsulas, copper-sand beaches, and tropical forests. The 50-pavilion, 13-villa boutique resort has a strong Khmer influence designed by master architect Chioh-Hui Goh of Singaporean firm Studiogoto. Chioh-Hui Goh’s design has also been endorsed by EarthCheck, an Australia-based organization that has benchmarked and certified Alila Villa Koh Russey’s areas of operational and environmental sustainability, as well as carbon dioxide emissions.
