Responsibility

The Zen Garden Hotel goes to great lengths to represent local culture and educate visitors on how this is done. The architectural style of the buildings is representative of traditional Chinese style, using local materials such as stone, tile and wood to build everything. Traditional elements such as koi ponds, gardens and a courtyard based on a family-oriented complex of buildings also highlight these traditional characteristics. Furthermore, a Naxi family owns the hotel, and they highly value the need to preserve traditional Naxi and Dongba culture. In the evenings, the staff introduce guests to well known Chinese poets, provide Pu’Er Tea that is cultivated in Yunnan and invite local artists to perform traditional music, share their paintings or read poetry.
