Design and Guestrooms

Designed by award-winning architect Kengo Kuma, the hotel’s architecture is inspired by the Chinese “Sanhe Yuan,” a three-sided courtyard style home embracing a green garden. With its unique location between green parks, Kengo Kuma has created an “urban forest” defined by a contemporary chic design and natural materials as a refreshing backdrop to an intuitive hospitality experience.

A biophilic design, known to incorporate natural materials, elements and views, is deeply engrained in the hotel’s design, the interior space is colored with natural materials giving its visitors a rich experience. The lobby space is full of natural light through oak louvers underneath a large glass skylight. With green bamboo landscape and natural travertine, marble, granite, oak and walnut throughout, it feels like taking a walk within a conservatory.

The hotel’s oriental aesthetic and biophilic design extends to its restful guestrooms. Oak wood, beige marble, green marble, wood grain patterned carpet – all the materials give a warm and cozy impression, creating a warm sanctuary with soft atmosphere as well as great views to surrounding greenery.

Impressive pieces of nature are implemented throughout the hotel to create a cheerful lasting memory of the guests’ time in the “Sanhe Yuan.”

Dining and Drinking

The hotel not only nurtures each guest’s mind and spirit, but also crafts an intuitively warm hospitality experience in every aspect.

Guests can reward themselves after the work day with a gastronomic journey where five tempting restaurants and bars offer locally inspired delicacies as well as international fare. The culinary journey begins at The Lounge, an urban sanctuary with natural sense of arrival to escape from the hustle and bustle of the day and continues with dining in the indoor garden at Market Café, the extension to an outdoor park serving authentic Chinese and international delicacies. Later this year, guests will be able to taste authentic Chinese cuisine at Cang Yue, ideal for distinctive celebrations and exclusive social occasions. Also available later this year will be the exquisite taste of Japanese specialties in the relaxed Izakaya style environment of Shunpachi. Guests will also enjoy the hotel’s nightlife with cocktails, live musicians and DJs to unwind from the day at The Music Bar.

As you arrive to Four Seasons Hotel at The Surf Club through the historic Peacock Alley, prepare to be submerged in the elegant glamour of old meets new. The second you step foot on the cobblestone driveway and enter though the remarkable doors of The Surf Club you immediately feel a connection with the rich history of the past. On the left-hand side hangs a framed photo of Winston Churchill painting in one of the cabanas during peak of The Surf Club heyday. Directly opposite is a picture of a yacht, the Marybelle to be exact, which signifies the birth of The Surf Club. Aboard the Marybelle was where tire tycoon Harvey Firestone first had the idea of establishing a unique social club for the elite.

As you are led along the original terracotta floors and palm tree-lined alleyway remember to look left and right to see archived photographs by artist Michele Oka Donner that depict the infamous parties and members of The Surf Club.
