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. Throughout, the ocean theme seeps through each interior design detail. The vibrantly illuminated “harmony of coral” glass sculpture anchors the massive lobby and welcome visitors as it is highly visible from the porte cochere. The lobby rotunda above is covered by hundreds of internally illuminated “pearls” and “shells” and is lifted by six giant dolphins. Lobby bars provide a warm contrast to the vibrant public spaces with the subtle and soft lighting.
