    Retreat Location

    Shandori Hotel (山多利大飯店)

    Shandori Hotel features a vast oriental style garden as the entrance and large high-ceiling French windows in which the lighting philosophy of Ando Style is introduced to incorporate with natural textures.


    The thick woods are used to outline the space through the light, materials and brightness without extra decorations while interior is breaking through and integrated with exterior to create a natural, pure and peaceful living environment.


    The Shandori Hotel that highlights the idea of “people, building and environment” was thus born.
