5 Star Glamour: Futuristic Hotels In China

New and amazing hotels are being built every day, with architects pushing the boundaries of what is possible each time. China in particular, continues to impress, with a string of glamorous and striking hotels opening in the last 12 months.

With an inventory of more than 800,000, here at HotelsCombined HQ we spend all day looking at incredible images and dreaming of the hotels that we’d like to visit. We picked out a few of the more futuristic hotels that we think look pretty cool:

Langham Place Guangzhou

“Sleek and striking” is how the Langham Place Hotel is described, and it certainly is. The hotel integrates luxury with art and impressively-designed comfort. The rooms are modern and impeccably comfortable, offering stunning views over the Pearl River and downtown area.

Located in the heart of Guangzhou – a mere stone’s throw from the Canton Fair Exhibition Centre – there are over 500 rooms available and a range of gourmet dining options (the Ming Court restaurant is highly recommended!).

Sheraton Huzhou Hot Spring Resort

Shaped like a horseshoe and lit up brilliantly at night, the Sheraton Huzhou Hot Spring Resort is unlike any other hotel. The hotel itself is a piece of art; the lobby is lit with Swarovski chandeliers and gorgeous marble floors, while the rooms are impeccably furnished.

The hotel is located at the foot of Huzhou Bianshan Mountain, Changxing, on the edge of the Taihu Lake – the still waters of the lake reflect the hotels incredible arching shape. With onsite restaurants, a spa and wellness centre, fitness centre and all of the technological facets you could possibly need; you’ll have very little need to leave the vicinity of the hotel.

Located close to the Forbidden City, the Beijing Zoo and Tiananmen Square, the Hotel Eclat Beijing is a 100-room boutique hotel that offers guests an elegant and sophisticated base in Beijing. Original art fills every corner of the hotel, with an extensive variety of authentic works in all public areas, the exhibition hall and all guest rooms.

While the hotel was designed with the business traveller in mind, the hotel staff are warm and personable. For those looking for additional luxury, 26 of the suites feature Jacuzzis within the bathroom, while a further 20 boast their own private outdoor pool. With cinemas and restaurants on the doorstep,  is there anything more you could possibly need?

If you are looking for a quiet (and incredibly luxurious!) getaway in a scenic paradise, then a few days at the InterContinental Sanya Haitang Bay Resort could very well be for you. Nestled in the mountains and with rooms offering expansive views over the sea and the hotel grounds, you are sure to leave feeling rejuvenated.

There are a range of onsite restaurants and the beach is a mere seven minute stroll away. For those wanting to stay close to home, you’ll love relaxing by the hotel pool or enjoying a massage in the luxury spa.

A key highlight of the hotel is the resort’s onsite restaurant AQUA, which can be found within the onsite aquarium. Yep. In the onsite aquarium. The restaurant can be booked for private functions (like weddings) or just a romantic meal.
