The House Collective
PROFILE & PHILOSOPHY
Each with its own distinctive character and sense of style, The House Collective is a group of refined, highly individual hotels that defy comparison. The Upper House, The Opposite House, The Temple House and The Middle House are all uniquely imagined hotels for seasoned travellers who seek a different, intimate and personalised experience in luxury travel. Each of the hotels is a sophisticated, singular piece of design, created by talented architects and designers, that enjoy a sense of place by reflecting the unique qualities of their surroundings. The House Collective is also well known for the independent restaurants, bars and lounges that add so much energy to our hotels.
THE HOUSE COLLECTIVE TODAY
We promise to take our guests on a mood-changing journey full of surprising, memorable and intoxicating experiences.
We promise to inspire, stimulate and rejuvenate in equal measure.
While our hotels celebrate and embrace ambitious modern design, we never let this get in the way of giving our guests exactly what they want, when they want it: for us style must always marry substance.
At heart, we are an improvising brand always open to new ideas and adapting to changing needs. We go with our instinct and have the confidence to challenge convention – not just for the sake of being different or standing out, but to enhance the lives of our guests and provide ever more rewarding experiences.
While we will always be taken seriously as hoteliers and restaurateurs, we promise never to take ourselves too seriously. There will always be a bit of playfulness and sense of fun evident at Swire Hotels.

MORE ABOUT THE HOUSE COLLECTIVE ORIENTATION
We collaborate with talented architects and designers to create contrasting, boldly different hotels at each location. Every one challenges the perceived notion of what a hotel should be and always reflects the unique qualities of its surroundings. The results are often daring, innovative and always original.
Our urban day spa, MI XUN in Chengdu is open to anyone who likes to make the most of their spa time, with effective, yet always luxurious pampering. Inspired by nature, we offer effective spa treatments in a cocooning, modern environment using spa products made from natural ingredients.
Anyone who knows Swire Hotels knows that we are passionate restaurateurs. Whether we’re offering simple dishes done well, timeless classics re-imagined or transporting an intriguing local flavour from one side of the world to another, our greatest treat is providing guests with unforgettable experiences.
