The area was designed as a pilot county for ecological and green building construction.
Alila Anji has been built with the area’s outstanding natural beauty in mind, and in accordance with Alila’s strict environmental and design ethos. A secret gated enclave, the resort has been designed like a traditional Chinese village with white exteriors and sweeping dark-tiled roofs.
