Kempinski has expanded its portfolio of hotels in China with the opening of the Sunrise Kempinski Hotel, Beijing.

Kempinski's largest development in China, Beijing's new Sunrise Kempinski Hotel, Beijing & Yanqi Island destination, comprises a total of 14 hotels located on the lakeshore and on Yanqi Island. The destination offers 14,069 square metres of meeting space, a conference centre, 14 restaurants and bars, 14 spas, a private marina, and a nine-storey pagoda.

The gradual opening of each facility began on 17 November 2014, six days after the final meeting of APEC China 2014 was held on Yanqi Island.

The Sunrise Kempinski Hotel, Beijing, which has 306 guest rooms and suites is spread across 21 floors and required two years of work with more than 9,300 construction workers.

Brice Pan, General Manager of Sunrise Kempinski Hotel, Beijing & Yanqi Island, said, "MICE organisers and delegates are already pleasantly surprised by how we have changed the whole MICE landscape in Beijing with the vast unique options that we have to offer, be it on land, by the lake, on the water, or by the mountain. We are also working in partnership with unique service providers such as helicopter services, e-yacht services and hot air balloon services to offer our guests unique and luxurious experiences. Our weekend leisure business will come from neighbouring domestic travellers as well as local Beijing residents."

The hotel is situated in the heart of Yanqi Lake which is a beautiful scenic site located at the foot of the Yan Mountains, surrounded by a variety of attractions including the Mutianyu Great Wall, Hongluo Temple, Qinglong Gorge and Baiquan Mountain. In 2014, just Mutianyu Great Wall alone, which is only about 30 minutes' drive away from Sunrise Kempinski Hotel, Beijing, attracted over 2.79 million visitors. Activities available nearby include water sports, golfing, horseback riding, and skiing.

Fitness facilities at the hotel include a spa, outdoor tennis courts, a fully-equipped gymnasium, a 26-metre swimming pool, as well as relaxation areas, hot and cold plunge pools, saunas, and steam rooms.

The hotel's 1,850-square-metre, pillar-free Kempinski Grand Ballroom accommodates up to 1,400 delegates in a theatre set-up. For smaller-scale events, the ballroom can be divided into three separate ballrooms. The pre-function area spans 1,200 square metres. There are a total of 12 meeting rooms ranging from 57 to 156 square metres.
