MEET LILY KWONG

“As a landscape designer, it is my mission to connect people to nature and that is why I founded Studio Lily Kwong. There is a natural synergy between my work and JW Marriott’s focus on holistic well-being. It’s truly extraordinary that JW Marriott properties around the world will have a JW Garden to grow herbs, vegetables, and ingredients for their culinary programs. These gardens draw on local wisdom of horticulturalists, gardeners, chefs, and the JW Marriott team.”

Designed by master craftsmen at Limen Studios, the millinery cabinet draws from the hotel’s façade and interiors and incorporates the ancient Japanese architectural technique, Shou Sugi Ban.

for respite and deeper connection. I hope these gardens offer inspiration, a
chance to listen to the land, her rhythms, and ultimately to ourselves.“
