Hangzhou has an abundance of rich and natural attractions to lure meeting and event planners. Its rich cultural heritage combined with the verdant landscape and picturesque West Lake make it one of China’s most inspiring and well-feeling destinations.

Whether it’s a global board meeting, corporate retreat, regional or functional meeting, Four Seasons Hangzhou at West Lake is a perfect choice to blend business with some time-out for a variety of activities to de-stress, slow down and reconnect.

The ultimate lunch break venue can be in the form of a traditional Chinese wooden boat from the Hotel’s private dock while guests sail across the tranquil waters of West Lake, expertly navigated by a boatman.

Alternatively, the Hotel’s exquisite gardens framed by willow trees, ponds and lagoons provide an ideal setting for being at one with nature as the Qigong master leads guests through a series of gentle meditative movements and deep rhythmic breathing to bring calm. This practice can help support one’s physical and mental health and can be effective in healing high blood pressure and, being blended with the additional psychological benefits of the outdoors, it is almost a “must do.”

Unwind in a bath of Sixty Thousand Tea Leaves in The SPA and settle down before reconvening for dinner to experience the Hotel’s award- winning Chinese restaurant Jin Sha.

For those searching for deeper meaning and more transformational experience, a private visit can be arranged to the Hangzhou Buddhist Academy, including a private tour with one of the Masters, Zen meditation as well as calligraphy, Chinese painting and seal engraving

Meeting mindfully at Four Seasons Hangzhou at West Lake aims to support planners who are conscious that breaks are critical to a successful event while decreasing anxiety and improving focus for the attendees.
