Located in Chimelong International Ocean Tourist Resort, the five-star hotel features 1,888 themed guest rooms and suites, two well equipped ballrooms, 26 multi-functional meeting rooms, nine distinctive stylish dining areas and one indoor water park. LDA provided the complete scope of lighting for the hotel including façade, interiors, guestrooms, landscape, indoor water park and the swimming pools.
The heavily themed hotel building unveils its dramatic and fantastic look when façade lighting turns on at dusk. Architecture columns are highlighted by warm white spot beam ceramic metal halide uplights which are fully concealed in sculptural decorative elements. Programmed LED floodlights creates a realistic flicking flame effect in the goblet of fire on the top of the building. LED strobe lights integrated in the GRP seagrass sculpture panels on the four main façades vividly mimicking the sparkling bubbles raising from the bottom of sea, contribute to the design theme “Ocean Palace”. Several custom designed nautical styles site poles lead guests through different areas of the project’s extravagant site.
