This is by far the best hotel I have ever visited. The Fuchun resort is some 3 hours far from Shanghai, immersed in the beautiful hills of the province of Hangzou. The structure of the building would well deserve a specific review: small houses jointly create a beautiful maze of stone columns, wooden ceilings and floors. We got a suite with lake view and we basically spent most of our time inside the resort, be it for a Himalayan yoga class or a Golf training course, or just relaxing in the swimming pool.
The room was fairly big and had a bathroom the size of a standard hotel room! The bedroom had a small dining area with view on the lake. You could see the lake from the bed, too. Service was excellent, maybe too much at times because you would get somebody knock at the door every now and then, be it for a courtesy drink or to place new flowers on the table, I know... how annoying right? It’s just that I do recognize it is great but it is not the best when you want to sleep during the day, for example. Room service menu a bit below the standard you would expect from such a hotel. The swimming pool was amazing, never seen such a beautiful space, relaxing music playing in the background, courtesy towels on the beds and waiters bringing you water and changing towels every time you needed. Outside the swimming pool two Jacuzzis and a nice stone path in a beautiful park, with two small rivers on the side and stairs leading to the spa, which we didn’t try but it was well above the standard even only from outside. The yoga instructor is great and the space where you take the course just magical . Same goes for the golf training, we were total beginners so we only practiced on a special golf court but the park around is great and there is a staff of 20 people attending your every need.
Restaurants are in the main building, where you also have a the breakfast room with terrace on the lake, and on the other side of the lake where you have the T8 restaurant, with a menu very much similar to the one in Shanghai. The food was a little bit too expensive, as well as the wine, which, by the way, was not the best one (also the wine list is very poorly assorted).
I would recommend this resort for a romantic getaway, it is really a place where you should go with no other plan than stay in the resort and relax for a couple of days. Hospitality of the most refined Asian tradition, nothing to do with the noisy and rude Shanghai.
