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.
