Drawing inspiration from the beloved national folktale of the Four Harmonious Friends - four animals who work together to harvest fruit from a magical tree - each guest floor is of the hotel is dedicated to a different animal from the tale. The guest rooms and suites feature colorful and contemporary motifs to match the theme.
