Style and Character

The villa retreat changes a small area of old stone streets built by the French long ago. This gives visitors the chance to experience traditional life in laneways. Previously home to more than 200 families, these red brick lanes are now only 55 villas. They also have stone-encrusted entrances and house just 40 private residences. Secret gardens have bronze sculptures, flowering vines, and other decorative elements. A cozy library also adds to the overall residential feel.


The 55 Shikumen Villas are a modern interpretation of classic Shanghai lane houses. They have multiple floors connected by an internal staircase. Jaya Ibrahim designed a current version of 1930s French Chinoiserie. The design has 4.5-meter ceilings. There are also redwood-framed windows and geometric courtyards. Minibars are also available with a Lavazza espresso machine.
