A rendition of the new NUO Hotel Beijing
The 438-room NUO Hotel Beijing, the initial entry in China's first homegrown luxury hotel brand, has debuted in the Chinese capital. The property features six restaurants, a traditional Chinese tea house overlooking an inner courtyard, a full-service spa with eight treatment rooms and a Chinese medicine center, an indoor heated pool, and 25,000 square feet of meeting and function space, including 14 meeting rooms. The NUO brand, which was developed in conjunction with Munich, Germany-based Kempinski Hotels and is entirely owned by the Beijing Tourism Group, is based on the premise of delivering traditional Chinese hospitality, culture and art, while seamlessly blending the design and services of its properties with modern-day luxury.
