The most interesting point of this Hotel is the Ecological construction strategy.
Asian and African elements were fused to bring the magic of African hospitality and intimacy with nature to an Asian setting. All buildings were designed to minimise the environmental impact and blend with the natural surroundings, not just with regards to materials used, but also including orientation of each building.

Naked Stables is a place to rediscover the pure, playful, and passionate side of your heart, to immerse in nature and nurture friendship, love and the simple pleasures of life and Chinese culture.
