by the Great Wall

Once hailed as the "New Architectural Wonder of China,” Commune by the Great Wall is comprised of 40 villas with 175 suites and 11 Presidential Suites. Each villa has a unique structure and theme; from the Bamboo Wall, which offers six bedrooms and a tea room, to the Suitcase House and the Forest House (seen from afar, the Forest House resembles a bird's nest in a tree) -- each is an architectural masterpiece, designed by 12 architects, for guests to enjoy. The Airport House, designed by architect Chien Hsueh-Yi, has four bedrooms and a sauna with a natural stone-made bath. Three living rooms extend to different directions just like the boarding corridors at an air terminal. There is also a half-underground private room.

The great thing for travelers staying at the Commune is it offers a private path to a non-restored section of the Great Wall of China. Surrounded by mountain views, this hike is a perfect way to explore the area and interact with nature.

Hungry after that hike? The Courtyard Restaurant serves a variety of regional Chinese cuisines and includes a bar and three discrete private rooms, each with a private garden en suite. There is also a poolside cafe and guests can grab a drink at the Pink Bar.
