A Timeless Palace of Luxury in Modern BeijingApril 27, 2016
A stunning sense of place will characterise the entire hotel, from its classic Chinese architecture to the palatial interiors on each floor. For centuries, Beijing has been the cultural heart of China, and the finest local craftsmen and designers are currently interpreting the city’s history by integrating elements of its iconic monuments and traditions into the hotel’s elegant new design. Once the meticulous renovation is completed, stunning art pieces by some of China’s most eminent artists combine with design innovations by master craftsmen will beautify Beijing’s imperial monuments and create a modern day palace.
In a feat of engineering and architectural flair, The Peninsula Beijing’s original 525 rooms and suites have been reduced and reimaged as just 230, the new guestrooms and suites will be the largest in Beijing. For each stay, guests can look forward to relaxing in ultimate style with a spacious living room, separate bedroom, marble bathroom and dressing area. Our designers are enhancing the sophisticated ambience with bespoke Chinese artworks and mahogany furnishings, and customised in-room amenities that create a new level of personalised comfort and convenience.
Exquisite Chinese and international cuisines have always been a hallmark of The Peninsula Beijing, and the revitalised hotel promises to elevate destination dining to new heights. Six elegant restaurants and lounges will delight diners from the epic grandeur of Afternoon Tea in the Lobby to cocktails on the rooftop terrace with views of ancient hutongs and modern skytowers. Our chefs have travelled across China and worldwide to source the finest sustainable produce that will enhance each dining experience in the sumptuous new restaurants.
Beyond the hotel, guests can explore Beijing’s ancient cultural icons and modern artistic spirit in engaging new ways. By collaborating with renowned local experts, we are curating exclusive programmes and benefits that provide unique insights into enduring Chinese traditions and the burgeoning arts, fashion and dining scenes.
The Peninsula Beijing’s spectacular makeover is almost complete. The Lobby, The Peninsula Arcade, restaurants and public areas will open in June. Stay tuned for more updates on bookings for the beautifully transformed guestrooms and suites, which will be unveiled in late summer.
