Accor announces the opening of MGallery in Mi’le, one of China’s most picturesque places and known as the ‘Provence of Yunnan’. The captivating DongFengYun Hotel Mi’Le – MGallery is a one-of-a-kind leisure destination in exotic southeastern Yunnan province. The art and culture infused storied hotel marks the first international premium hotel brand to open in the Honghe Hani and Yi Autonomous Region, a hidden gem in Yunnan Province.
DongFengYun Hotel Mi’Le – MGallery breathes life to the concept of art igniting dialogues with nature to create inspiration for painting life’s joys. The MGallery in Mi’le is situated within Dong Feng Yun Art Village, a scenic town designed by renowned Chinese master sculptor Luo Xu. Embraced by vineyards and lavender fields, the hotel is set amidst a cluster of distinctively surreal postmodern red brick castles built in harmony with the surrounding red soil land, lush forests, serene lake and mountains. Its curved walls and dynamic shapes pay tribute to the indigenous craft of pottery, winemaking traditions and flickering campfire flames from the area’s ethnic culture. The architecture rises like a dream – a fairy tale that beckons explorers into an exotic realm. The remarkable setting is the ideal backdrop for MGallery’s singular personality, with the hotel deeply rooted in the destination.
Interior design helmed by Cheng Chung Design (CCD), DongFengYun Hotel Mi’Le – MGallery references the senses of light – including the use of natural light and design of interior lighting; sound – through the hotel lobby’s unique echoes; forms – in the curving red walls; and other internal and external design elements to reinforce the village’s artistic splendor harmoniously. The hotel offers nine room types across its 232 guestrooms which are equipped with MGallery custom beddings and tailor made Ines de la Fressange amenities set.
