Hotel Review

The centrepiece of The Temple House is a restored Qing dynasty courtyard, which opens to a small rolling lawn and tall glass tower of rooms. Soothing public spaces flow indoors and out, with traditional brickwork and wood carvings at every turn. The rooms are spacious with high tech touches, subtle lighting, neutral colour schemes, and extra plush beds. Dining options break from the city’s fiery Sichuan cuisine and include an Italian restaurant, an all-day bistro, and a lovely vegetarian teahouse. Special mention goes to the Jing Bar for classic cocktails indoors or out. The gloriously tranquil lower level features a gym, pool, and spa.

The Temple House

Chengdu has scads of five-star hotels but few as sophisticated as the boutique Temple House. Combining both old and brand-new buildings, it's a totally 21st-century Chinese hotel, balancing local culture with hi-tech. Al fresco, international dining is made even more pleasurable by the remarkably soigné staff.
