Facilities offered in Mahayana OCT Boutique Hotel Shenzhen :
The Mahayana has kept up with its Buddhist theme in every way. They had Meditation robes, buddhist sandals etc in the room. Our favorite was the whole herbal tea making set. There were so many stirrers and all we didn't know they were supposed to be used for. It was the typical authentic Chinese way of making tea!! They also had this whole painting thing going on. They had rice(I think) paper, some black paint, some brushes etc. You are supposed to paint some Chinese characters.
The bathroom had lavender salts to soak in after a long day.
The mattress wasn't soft enough. The hotel only has 2 floors and is in a secluded spot on the top of a mountain with no exceptional view to boast of. But to get up to the huge beautiful Budhha statue was again in keeping with the Budhhist theme of the hotel, I guess. And we didn't mind it at all. The staff at the reception was EXCEPTIONALLY nice, well behaved and very very helpful. They knew manageable English. They actually went out of their way to help us around because we didn't know Mandarin.
The only tiny blip was not in the hotel but the whole OCT property was the getting around the property. They have a bus(909) which takes you around and comes at regular intervals(not empty though if its during holiday season) but they charge 10 RMB per person everytime you want to go somewhere which was all the time for us because we were in a secluded spot. for just 2 people you would end up spending somewhere under 100 RMB per day!! I think thats very wrong because we've been to resorts like these before and if they have a huge property it is their duty to get us around it, for free!!!
All in all it was a wonderful experience.
