naked Stables - China

A fabulous eco retreat secluded in the lush hills of Moganshan, near Shanghai, naked Stables offers luxury accommodation in two types of units: delightful African inspired huts as well as stunning treetop villas with private balconies, hot tubs, and glorious floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the surrounding bamboo forests and picturesque tea plantations. A brainchild of architect Delphine Yip, the design has been conceived as a subtle extension of nature, and is a unique blend of local materials, green building practices, and state-of-the-art energy saving systems. In addition to wonderful facilities such as horse stables, infinity pools, and an elaborate spa based on ancient Chinese traditions, the resort boasts a variety of restaurants serving fresh and delicious European and Asian dishes made with the finest local ingredients.
