Any hotel with its own internal designer shopping arcade has us sold, especially when it’s offered alongside such seamless luxury design and a comforting ambience of subtle grandeur. The Peninsula Beijing offers everything you could hope for from a hotel at the heart of this bustling capital, from delicious local food at the traditionally designed rooftop bar to the 230 spacious and elegant suites and a host of luxury spa treatments whose richly scented oils will truly transport you to the Orient.
The Peninsula Beijing rightly prides itself on offering world class standards in design, luxury and comfort within easy access of Beijing’s finest attractions, shopping, dining and nightlife. Located in Wangfujing, a brief stroll will see you at historical monuments such as Tiananmen Square, The Forbidden City, and The National Theatre. Whilst when it comes to getting here, arrive in style in the back of one of the hotel’s signature Rolls Royces and the 50-minute journey from Beijing Airport will simply fly by.
Given that The Peninsula is Beijing’s only all-suite hotel, and none of the 230 luxurious suites comes smaller than 645 square feet, you can expect a spacious abode that will feel like a home from home. Epitomising Chinese heritage, the suites all feature exquisite details and elegant materials in classic earthy tones. Subtle lines and intricate details reflect traditional artistry but are given a contemporary twist with bold colours whilst the white marble bathrooms epitomise luxury.
WHY WE LIKE IT
We’ve already mentioned the shopping, but we feel it probably needs a little more attention. With a selection of the world’s top luxury brands featured across three levels of the hotel, The Peninsula Arcade offers a wonderfully relaxed and intimate shopping experience like none we’ve experienced before. Guests are ensured limited-edition merchandise, exclusive offers and bespoke shopping which even welcomes custom-made requests. This is shopping Beijing style, and we can’t get enough.
