Kempinski’s European charm stuns in one of China’s oldest cities.
The hotly anticipated opening of a new Kempinski hotel in the Chinese city of Nanjing is just a few weeks away, so we take a look inside the design of this eagerly awaited hotel, where East meets West and old meets new.
Nanjing gets a taste of Europe
Nanjing is one of the most important cities in China in terms of history, trade and culture. It is home to one of the world’s largest inland ports in the Yangtze River Delta.
The city also occupies a unique place in Chinese history, given that it was the capital during numerous dynasties, most notably the Ming.
Now, there is another reason to visit this enchanting metropolis, the addition of a new Kempinski hotel, the five-star Kempinski Hotel Nanjing.
Set in the bustling centre of Nanjing, the hotel takes full advantage of its enviable location and offers guests the best of both worlds – an opportunity to explore this unique setting, and a luxurious oasis to retire to after a day of sightseeing and adventure.
Stunning design in a historic setting
Kempinski is known for its luxurious hotels and this offering is no different.
This 5-star property boasts the very best in contemporary design, and the concept of bringing European style and flair to this ancient city while celebrating the history and culture which make it special has been pulled off in an exceptional manner.
As soon as guests enter the lobby, they are greeted with an opulence that could only have been conceived of in Europe, but one which can be appreciated in a new way given the setting.
The reception is sleek and sophisticated, the marble floor polished to a high sheen and accentuated by the gold accents in the structure and the wall tiles.
The 336 guest rooms are the epitome of refinement and luxury, with a neutral palette of muted greys offset with bursts of teal, and an array of textiles that recall typical Chinese establishments and interiors.
Guests can also indulge in the state-of-the-art spa and health club, and the hotel is ideal for leisure and business travellers alike, given its 2,000 sqm of conference and event space.
