Nestled within a small forested valley, and birthplace of Taoism, Qing Cheng Mountain Resort reflects a sense of calm through its uncomplicated and elegant architecture. Built on the site of a hydro-power plant, the Taoist principles of natural occurrences have an affinity with the site’s previous purpose; to create energy from the flow of water.

At the top of the hill in a serene, lush forest, The Villas Sanctuary encircle the revitalized water reservoir. The ancient harmony of Yin and Yang is present in the new energy found here.
