Deluxe Digs: New Villa Accommodations at Four Seasons Hangzhou

Calling all royalty (or those fit for it)! Four Seasons Hotel Hangzhou at West Lake has recently unveiled brand new villa accommodations that would wow both high-end travelers and emperors alike.

The Presidential, Ambassador and Governor Villas each include three stories of private and communal spaces. We hear that each villa has 10,000 square feet of living space and bedrooms, all surrounded by private gardens.

Fusion forward: Each villa is characterized by pagoda-like, peaked roof pavilions, akin to the garden houses of Shanghai. We love the touches of modernity that are seamlessly blended into the historic design (think 47-inch plasma TVs, stereo surround-sound, indoor pools, private gyms and saunas). Top touch: Each villa has its own theater.
