Since ancient times a centre of learning, achievement and power, more recently host to the world’s greatest sporting festival, and today, the cultural heart of China with its dynamic visual arts movement, rich performing arts community, emerging architecture and vibrant culinary scene. And now, China’s capital is home to a new temple of modernity and style: welcome to the new Four Seasons Hotel Beijing.

"We are so delighted to share the new Four Seasons Hotel Beijing with travellers and residents of the city," says General Manager Sanjiv Hulugalle. "Like the city itself, our Hotel harmoniously marries Chinese tradition with a contemporary aesthetic, in a setting of luxury and the highly personalized service for which Four Seasons is world-renowned."

In the Liangmahe area of the Central Business District, close to the Third Diplomatic Precinct and amid Beijing’s vibrant cultural scene, Four Seasons unveils an impressive building blending ancient Chinese themes with up-to-the-minute design aesthetic, technologies and luxurious comfort.

As guests pass through a wide façade reminiscent of the city's Imperial Palaces and into the skylit central atrium, they are immediately struck by the dramatic calligraphic art entitled Landscape of Desires by Qin Feng. Here the Chinese spirit of wu – performance, strength and passion - comes to life and sets the stage for what promises to be a memorable stay at Four Seasons. It’s also just the beginning of an artistic journey through China's contemporary art scene, with pieces displayed throughout the Hotel.

Nearby, the stunning two-story Opus Lounge beckons guests with a lively atmosphere, or they may choose to go directly to one of 313 guest rooms and suites above, each a serene sanctuary in the middle of one of the world’s busiest cities. A weary traveller may wish to relax in the Spa, or get straight to work in the Executive Club Lounge. A naturally-lit indoor pool and gym also await, along with a choice of restaurants and lounges that circles the globe for the best ingredients and dishes.
