Moganshan is not only covered in Bamboo but also large waves of Pine forests, small waterfalls, streams and tea plantations. Among the trees and meandering waters that cut through the mists of the mountain you can find a rich and diverse ecosystem that is home to native species of raspberry, blackberry, bitter bamboo and cherokee rose. Bird-spotters can look out for Asian Barred Owls, Red-billed Blue Magpies, Long-tailed Shrikes, Sand Martins and Eurasian Tree Sparrows. Its a stark contrast from the cities of Hangzhou and Shanghai just a short drive away.
Surrounded by tea plantations, Moganshans tea-picking season starts at the beginning of April and runs until the start of October. On top of green tea, found at naked Stables Private Reserve is rare white tea, so called because it is picked before the leaves are fully opened so the buds are still covered in fine white hairs. It is the most abundant in the area and undergoes the least amount of processing its naturally decaffeinated and contains high amounts of antioxidant properties. Due to these properties, at naked Stables, we also use tea in our cuisine and spa treatments.
The mountain became popularised in the 1880s by Shanghai expatriates looking for an exclusive summer heat retreat. They built houses from local stone, plus churches, swimming pools and tennis courts many of which still stand on the hilltop today. By the 1930s there were over 200 European style villas built in local granite and sandstone, and the village had its own tennis courts, swimming pools, bakery and churches.

Bamboo is a group of perennial evergreen plant in the true grass family. In Moganshan bamboo shoots are harvested every other year alternating with growing years, with over 400 types of bamboo in the area. The most prominent is called Moso that grows upwards of 21m and with it growing up to nearly one metre a day in spring, it only takes 5-6 weeks to reach its height. naked Retreats uses bamboo in a number of ways including chairs, flooring, screening, fencing, cooking, blinds, clothing and tools.
Using the freshest vegetables and meat from the local area, Nong Jia Cai is Chinese organic village cuisine that is embraced by naked Retreats and cooked by ayis home-style. Dishes include eggplant, braised pork, local shrimp and of course bamboo. naked Retreats menus are, as far as possible, made up from produce from farm to fork. The kitchens use minimal oil, absolutely no flavouring additives or MSG and all ingredients are cooked as lightly and simply as possible.
The mountain is now home to local villagers who ply their trades farming bamboo and tea. Full of kind character and generous personalities, the local community are not only incorporated into the resort life and provide authentic community interactions, but are an integral aspect of resort life. naked Retreats has been a driving force in the community with a commitment to giving work opportunities across its resorts including building, cooking and hotel work.
