Dali Hotel / Brand identity

The Dali Hotel is a high-end brand combining local ethnic customs with modernity and elegance. It is located in the Dali Old Town, which is full of romantic and artistic atmosphere. The hotel is surrounded by the beautiful lake of Erhai ("Ear-shaped Sea"), an alpine fault lake in Yunnan province, China. Consequently, we combined that natural setting with the "Erhai Moon" – one of the famous features in Dali. Inspired by this, we extracted the architectural features of "Wuhualou" (a five-floor ancient tower, experiencing a 1,200-year history) with the bright Erhai moonlight, which brought us to the initial "D" (standing for Dali Hotel).
