A lake-edged Beijing retreat that puts nature in the spotlight
Shu was inspired by the Song Dynasty paintings ‘A Panorama of Rivers and Mountains’, and ‘Landscapes of the Four Seasons’ when planning Yanbai Villa’s design. It’s no surprise that the hotel’s 27,000m² of gardens are its highlight – dotted with trees, bridges and zig-zagging trails for refreshing strolls. Observation decks and terraces allow you to take in panoramic views of serene Yanqi Lake, and the striking wooded slopes of Yanqi Island. While the hotel’s rooms invite the outside in, nestled within the gardens and featuring floor-to-ceiling windows framing rustling leaves or shimmering water. Interiors have an elegant aesthetic – and every creature comfort – with neutral colours, smooth wood panelling and understated murals.

The hotel’s restaurants offer upscale dining – and more of those sublime views – from classic French to traditional Chaoshan cuisine. Its Lobby and Whiskey Bars are cosy hideouts to toast a day of exploration or relaxation. You can nourish both body and mind in the Yang gym, Guan outdoor hot spring pool, or the Azure rooftop trail, without needing to step outside the hotel to find balance, peace, and a healthy dose of bliss.
Enjoy your stay!
