Xiamen

YWS marries luxury and escape in this breathtaking island destination.

Xiamen

Welcome to Xiamen, a concept design for the Sheraton Resort on Xiamen Island. Fittingly, this leisure offering embodies the spirit of its island home, marrying luxury with whimsy and inspiring a true sense of wonder. The resort adopts the lore of the island, drawing its look and feel from a local legend in which an egret and a king snake battle, the egret is slain, and a richly hued native fire plant arises from the egret’s spilled blood.

The legend-inspired color palette of warm browns, pure white, red, and ocean blues – along with textural features like feathers and scaled finishes – come together to create a leisure destination that honors and sustains its local setting while staying true to the brand standards of Sheraton, the hotel operator. An admirable balancing act.
