When completed, Yanqi Lake Kempinski Hotel Beijing will have the shape of the rising sun. The 12 Boutique Hotels blend contemporary and traditional design with thematic decor, such as the Chinese Imperial Gardens of Beijing and “Siheyuan”, a traditional courtyard combined with modern elements.

The development is located approximately 45 kilometers north of Beijing Capital International airport, 60 kilometers north of Beijing’s city center and 25 kilometers from Mutianyu Great Wall.

Yanqi Lake, meaning “Swans Dwell on Lake” in Chinese, is located at the foot of Yanshan Mountains, eight kilometers north of Huairou County. Spanning 162.5 acres, Yanqi Lake is surrounded by a variety of trees including pine, poplar and willow. The island is also a natural habitat for rare birds.
