Yanqing District is located about 75 km north-west of Beijing. It is home to the popular Badaling mountain range section of the Great Wall. It is rich in historical sites and natural landscape.
Hyatt Regency Beijing Shiyuan is designed to create hospitality in a Chinese heritage context with green living awareness. The design blends Chinese culture with nature to create an environment inspired by 5000 years of Chinese history and the mountain range.
The hotel design takes the mountain landscape and the Great Wall architecture to create a series of reception, lounges and dining spaces using a consistent architectural language and planning principles that respects China’s cultural heritage in a comfortable contemporary setting and infused with carefully selected artworks. The aspiration is to create international hospitality that respects local culture and the environment.
