Shenzhen Marriot Hotel Nanshan is strategically located at the business center of Nanshan district. By integrating local culture into the hotel interior designs, the designers not only create a wonderful lodging experience for our guests, but also leave them with a deep impression of local culture and our business hotel. Leaning against the mountain and facing the sea, the entire Nanshan District is historically known as a land filled with abundant plain and ocean resources, nurturing fishing village culture for countless years. With both hands, local aborigines weave not only their fishing nets, fishing gears, clothes, hats, and shoes, but also their happy lives. Named after Nanshan Mountain, Shenzhen Marriot Hotel Nanshan leans against a mountain range covered by lychee flowers and lychee fruits, which are indeed a real blessing from heaven. Fishing villages, aboriginal weaving crafts, fishing nets, fishing gears, rolling hills and beautiful lychee flowers have all become the inspiration source of the hotel designs.

1F Reception Hall
As our guests first step into Shenzhen Marriott Hotel Nanshan, they are met with a reception hall that is designed by integrating natural elements into the modern setting through a series of unique composite elements. While wooden grains are applied to outline the transition between light and shade, coarse natural logs and delicate linear metals are combined to generate a modern aesthetic taste. Through a joint combination of stone materials and metal plates, elements such as large screens, lamps, plants, and mosses are arranged to bring out the interaction between “light” and “shade” of the entire atmospheric space. Under the design principle of creating a leisure lifestyle for our honored guests, an atmospheric space that merges elegant eastern style with modern style is created

The artwork “Distance (pinyin: Li)” is named after the ancient Chinese word for “Lychee (pinyin: Lizhi)”. Another deeper meaning for the artwork is that with the passage of time, people’s ages would normally grow without their awareness. Being selected as the artwork’s raw material, the tough log was sculpted and piled into a complete artwork, with its wooden brims carved into a shape that resembles the twisting coastline and the surging waves. The entire artwork is sculpted into the shape of a walnut and is displayed before everyone’s eyes.

3F & 4F Banquet Hall & Conference Room
Starting out from the design principle of creating a peaceful resort amidst the crowded city, the hotel was tactfully designed so that our guests could relax themselves in a high-quality space after stepping into our hotel from the crowded city. Since free-flowing spatial pattern is applied to arrange the entire space, our guests would feel as if they are stepping into a beautiful garden while roaming in our hotel. With vertical wooden screens resembling the images of “trees” and banquet hall chandeliers resembling the images of “blooming flowers”, a peaceful natural theme can be concretely presented through an abstract approach. In addition, mobile wall partitions can be flexibly applied to some parts of the conference rooms and banquet halls, so that the entire space can be reconstructed to meet various functional needs such as receptionist activities and different kinds of meetings.
