A month before its opening, Sunrise Kempinski Hotel is revealing an inside look into its futuristic, nature-infused hotel.
In about a month, the Sunrise Kempinski Hotel will be opening in Yanqi Lake, which is about an hour from Beijing.
This hotel looks pretty amazing, and is based off the idea of the sun rising over the lake. It is near a part of the Great Wall of China and has amazing views of the Yanshan Mountains. According to the hotel’s website, Yanqi Lake, which the hotel sits on, translates to “Swans dwell on the lake.”
The hotel has 21 floors, 306 guestrooms and panorama suites, meeting rooms, a spa, recreational facilities, and nine restaurants.
The architects of the hotel put a lot of thought into building it. The rising sun, which is seen from the front view of the hotel, is meant to represent the Chinese economy. From the side, the appearance of a scallop, is meant to represent good fortune. The exterior was built from 10,000 glass panels and was made to withstand a magnitude 8 earthquake. The front of the hotel is made to represent the mouth of a fish, which represents prosperity in Chinese culture.
The hotel was built to reflect different parts of the surrounding nature. The panels are angled so that the top of the hotel reflects the sky, the bottom of the hotel reflects the lake, and the middle of the hotel reflects the surrounding mountain range.
What is the cost to stay in such a nice, new hotel? According to the hotel’s website, rates start at a modest $185, which isn’t too bad for such a spectacular view. More pictures and information are available at the Sunrise Kempinski Hotel website.
I don’t know about you, but this hotel may just be something I’ll have to make a trip to China soon in order to check out what appears to be an absolutely amazing hotel.
