NAT­U­RAL AP­PROACH

DestinAsian - - FLASHBACK -

Wangjing, a res­i­den­tial area in north­east Bei­jing known as much for its sur­feit of Korean restau­rants as for its more re­cent emer­gence as a vi­brant busi­ness cen­ter and IT hub, now has a ho­tel to match its new buzz. De­signed by ac­claimed Ja­pa­nese ar­chi­tect Kengo Kuma as a trib­ute to the tra­di­tional three-sided court­yard house known as sanhe

yuan, Hy­att Re­gency Bei­jing Wangjing is a rav­ish­ing ad­di­tion to the city’s lodg­ings scene, its lo­ca­tion be­tween green parks re ected in an “ur­ban for­est”–in­spired look that em­pha­sizes nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als and un­der­stated con­tem­po­rary lux­ury. Be­yond the con­ser­va­tory-like lobby, the ho­tel’s 3 guest rooms con­tinue the theme with swaths of oak wood, beige mar­ble, and wood-grain pat­terned car­pets, not to men­tion oor-to-ceil­ing win­dows that frame views of the sur­round­ing green­ery. Culi­nary o er­ings range from the Mar­ket Caf , where guests dine on re­gional and in­ter­na­tional cui­sine amid gaze­bos and wa­ter fea­tures, to Shun­pachi, an iza­kaya

style restau­rant serv­ing an ar­ray of Ja­pa­nese spe­cial­ties. Other pluses in­clude a ca­bana-lined in­door pool and easy ac­cess to the 79 Art one and Bei­jing’s ex­ten­sive sub­way sys­tem. For more in­for­ma­tion, call 86-10/8630-1234 or visit bei­jing­wangjing.re­gency.hy­att.com
