The design for Xinglong Lakeside Resort began with the beautiful lake surrounded by green hills evoking memories of serenity and meditation. The lure and romance of the natural environment provided the setting to create a truly memorable resort. The conceptual framework behind Xinglong Lakeside resort was to integrate the design with the natural environment. The rugged nature of the terrain, hills, and lakes of the site creates a fantastic setting for a wonderful and relaxing livable community. Maximizing orientation and taking advantage of the views towards the lake as well as working with the terrain were the main contributing features which define the resort. The contemporary, chic lakeside resort is set in the rolling countryside with easy connectivity from across Hainan Island via expressway and train.
