Upon first thought, the East and West seem to be two completely divergent cultures separated by disparate languages, aesthetics and even flavors.
Yet, sophisticated travelers know to look deeper, and after a few thoughtful moments, frequently discover that while differences always remain, there are often many more things that are wonderfully shared. A love of fine finishes, an appreciation for the details, even the savored sip from a humble cup of tea.
At The Ritz-Carlton, Guangzhou, guests of our 5 star hotel experience the blending of these two seemingly dissonant worlds, which seamlessly join together in perfect harmony. Beginning with our traditional welcome, served in the form of a warm cup of tea, guests from every corner of the globe savor the dually familiar and exotic.
Cradling a china teacup, guests sit and admire the Zen-like fountain that abundantly flows inside the elegant Rococo-style interior. Once settled in their guest rooms, the five star treatment continues, as they open the rich jacquard curtains to reveal a view of the glowing cityscape, where travelers from all over the world gather to share ideas and engage in commerce, at dynamic events like the Canton Fair.
