If you are planning a ‘staycation’ to Beijing, Hotel Éclat has revealed their newest suites that you would never want to vacate. In celebration of its first year, the luxury boutique hotel has unveiled four uniquely designed suites as diverse as The Matrix, Barbie, The Orient Express and The White House.
Hotel Éclat brings Barbie’s dream house to life. The chic retreat Barbie themed room is simply a pink boudoir of velvet and chandeliers for anybody who wants to indulge their feminine side. Pieces from Tom Hoffman’s Drag Collection such as his Bella Italia pink poodle; colorful, Indonesian-inspired mirrors and tables with gold bootlegs and checker drag racing motifs on cigarette-smoking giraffes create playful puns about the absurdity of life. With Versailles Fluor pieces by Seletti to accessorize the space, this is a grown up wonderland for Alice.
The White House is the true home of a modern statesman. This light and airy space with Chesterfield-style upholstered button sofas, cowhide benches and subtle chandeliers is tinted with memories of Paris and New York. Scuffed canvas sofas in muted dove shades and playful giant chess pieces adorn the generous terrace making this suite perfect for entertaining in either a relaxed or formal style.
For Matrix fans, this room may be the ultimate draw. The Matrix creates a sci-fi, space age feel with a chrome and dark leather decor. Timothy Oulton’s ‘Mars’ chairs are complemented by planet-inspired decoration. Gyro crystal lamps and an Oxford Radcliff desk contrast with the historic Spitfire jet-fighter inspired aged-aluminium multi-riveted tables and Michael Yeung’s sleek lineal chairs on the terrace leave guests with a feeling of traveling both back and forward in time.
The Orient Express celebrates a glorious age when travel was truly a life journey. Timothy Oulton’s Globetrekker trunks nestle beside a dramatic Britannia-inspired Union Jack button sofa and antler horn benches, reminiscent of the faded glory of an empire and hinting at a colder climate. By the time the traveler arrives on the terrace, their world is transformed into a warmer tropical place of canvas loungers.
Adding to their portfolio of four Grand Deluxe Lagoon Suites and eight Deluxe Suites launched last year, the newly unveiled suites includes a sitting room, dining room, kitchen, bedroom and en-suite bathrooms. The suites are equipped with Panasonic massage chair to watch a good Blu-ray movie on the 55” 3D television or listen to quality sounds on the Bang & Olufsen system. Encased within the building’s ETFE roof, the ecosphere of the only weatherproof private indoor terraces in Beijing provides natural daylight as well as filtered air quality and comfortable lighting.
Blissful bathrooms feature an LCD television, full-length bath with separate walk-in rainforest shower and exclusive toiletries from London’s Miller Harris. And over-sized King sized beds with 6 pillows, goose-down duvet and the finest linen ensure a perfect night of rest. The suites with terrace are available for RMB 10,600 (approx. $1,711) per night excluding taxes.
Throughout its first year, Hotel Éclat Beijing has established itself as one of the most exclusive luxury design and art hotels worldwide. It houses the largest private collection of Salvador Dali artworks outside of Europe, together with some of China’s finest contemporary art and masterworks by artists including Zeng Fanzhi and Gao Xiaowu.
