PANGU 7 STAR HOTEL BEIJING

By Chris Boyle

Master Bedroom / Pangu Presidential Suite

Combining a prestigious location overlooking the Beijing Olympic Park, and an auspicious East-meets-West design built according to ancient Chinese feng shui principles, the Pangu 7 Star Hotel is part of the stunning Pangu Plaza development, which will also comprise luxury offices, residences and flagship stores of the world’s most luxurious brands.

Located on Beijing’s new axis of prestige and power, the complex sits adjacent to the historical central axis that stretches from the Forbidden City to the 2008 Olympic Park. With interiors by Milan-based Italian-Brazilian designer Ricardo Bello Dias, the 234-room hotel epitomizes opulent 21st-century modernity and is set to become a distinct and recognizable icon for new China. Lavish but welcoming, the design strikes a masterful balance between Chinese classical tradition and contemporary European glamour, and the expert personalized services, delicious culinary offerings and perfect location will leave you wanting for nothing.

Suite style: Opulent, East-meets-West elegance, by Ricardo Bello Dias.
