Universal Beijing Resort has shared a new look at its two resort hotels, The Universal Studios Grand Hotel and NUO Resort Hotel.
Located at the entrance to Universal Studios Beijing, The Universal Studios Grand Hotel will immerse guests in the Golden Age of Hollywood. Just a few steps away from the theme park, NUO Resort Hotel will offer an escape inspired by the beauty of China’s ancient royal gardens. Guests staying at both hotels will be able to enjoy Early Park Admission to a select land or attractions inside Universal Studios Beijing before the park opens to the public (with valid admission) through an exclusive access entrance.
“We are proud to welcome guests for a stay at those two extraordinary hotels for a perfect complement for the theme park experience when we open,” said Dorian Rommel, managing director of Hotel Management Branch. “We’re confident that the two hotels will embrace a new level of theme park hospitality that is beyond expectation, along with one-of-a-kind guest experiences and services, as well as create an idea destination for an urban staycation.”
The Universal Studios Grand Hotel
Once open, this will be the world’s first Universal-themed hotel, inspired by Hollywood’s Golden Age combined with the Spanish Revival aesthetic of California. The interiors feature contemporary graphic patterns set in a neutral palette, accented with splashes of color.
Upon entering the lobby and reception area, guests will see a Spanish-style fountain set against a glass mosaic wall. Movie buffs will love the collection of Universal film posters that decorate the hotel’s interiors; there will also be displays of behind-the-scenes photos chronicling the company’s century-long contribution to the film industry.
The hotel offers 800 rooms and suites, with a few family-friendly themed accommodations inspired by DreamWorks Animation’s “Kung Fu Panda.”
There are three themed hotel dining options, including one all-day dining, Universal Studios Lotus Garden featuring a menu packed with Asian and international favorites for family-style sharing, and movie-themed breakfast and brunch where guests can meet their favorite characters. The Character Breakfast will offer a fun, family dining experience seven days a week with the appearance of Minions from Illumination’s franchise or the heroes from the “Kung Fu Panda” films.
Universa Studios Red Dragon Lounge will serve refreshing drinks and laid-back meals; as well as the California favorite Peet’s Coffee for grab-and-go options.
The Kids’ Club will offer fun for the whole family, with different activities like crafts and video games on deck. Mini cinephiles and their families can enjoy animated films at the in-house cinema that’s been decorated with director-style chairs and popcorn container-shaped stools.
NUO Resort Hotel
Debuting as the first-ever resort hotel from NUO, one of China’s first homegrown luxury hotel brands. This 400-room hotel will offer guests a more serene experience inspired by a contemporary take on Chinese traditional cultural and artistic achievements — while also utilizing modern conveniences. There’s even a tearoom at The Lobby Lounge dedicated entirely to the traditional Chinese tea culture; every room and suite also has their own traditional Chinese tea set.
Three dining options are available at this hotel: JIA, which offers authentic and upscale Cantonese cuisine in royal garden fashioned interiors; Café Royal, where guests can watch chefs prepare Mediterranean-inspired dishes; and The Lobby Lounge, which serves exclusive afternoon tea and pastries during the day, and cocktails at night. A separate Executive Lounge with dedicated benefits is also available for executive room guests.
Other amenities at NUO Resort Hotel include the fully-equipped Fitness Center, a swimming pool, the multi-function Magnolia Room social space, and the NUO Spa.
