Huizhou Nankunshan Crosswaters Ecolodge & Spa


The Bamboo Villas at the crosswater ecolodge & spa in Guangdong Province, is one of the world’s top 50 high-end ecolodges, where guests can enjoy relaxation,  simple pleasures and the beauty of nature.

Where architecture dances gently with humanity culture and nature putting on a harmonious performance, half hidden in green mountain by a stream of Nankun Mountain.

I have spent a week in one of  the eight bamboo villas which are like the eight sages in the bamboo forest accompanies by faint flowery fragrance, birds’ tweet, crickets and grasshoppers concertos and the gurgling waters of the river singing to the hum of the turning earth.

It was a magical time spend in a company of awesome friends, joyful music, great wine and breathtaking nature.  I unwounded, rewinded and now I am ready for next challenge ……
