The inspiration for the Raffles hotel interior design was very much based upon the location of the hotel. It is situated right next to the One Shenzhen bay and has amazing views of the Pearl Delta River and the mountains beyond, so it felt natural to incorporate the water  and mountain element into the design. This is seen in the organic carpet designs throughout, the metal screens on level 34 and also in the applied colour palette throughout, the mountain scape screens in the spa, etc.

The Raffles hotel is a brand renowned for its residential feel, high level of service and luxury. The selection of the finishes and FF&E has very much taken these elements into account . The real emphasis throughout this hotel was to create an ambience which reflects everything a guest would wish for in the own home whilst adding the conveniences that a hotel brings.

The original Raffles in Singapore has a very classical interior design, but in this Raffles we have tried to pay homage to the modern city that Shenzhen has now become and have therefore created a more contemporary look and feel.
