Hotel Eclat Beijing showcases original art

from Salvador Dali to Andy Warhol in a

sustainable and green setting

Hotel Éclat Beijing houses the largest

private collection of Dali works outside

of Europe, together with some of

China’s finest contemporary art and

masterworks. Indeed, in a globalised

world, the hotel’s impressive art

collection forms an important cultural

legacy and an important platform for

promoting understanding of Easter

and Western art.

This luxury boutique hotel offers a rare

opportunity to experience museum

quality art while enjoying stylish, cool

accommodation, outstanding cuisine,

intuitive yet non-intrusive guest

services and a spectacular Mall, all

within its unique architectural design.

The entire complex pays tribute to art,

with an impressive collection of fine

works in guestrooms and public areas

– more than 100 pieces, including

original sculptures and paintings not

only from Salvador Dali, but also the

likes of Pierre Matter, Zhang Guolang,

Chen Wen Ling, Andy Warhol, Gao

Xiao Wu, and Zou Liang.

The hotel has 100 rooms, with 20

themed suites that have their own

terrace with swimming pool. A special

feature of the Deluxe Lagoon Suites

is the ultra-spacious living rooms

and separate dining areas, which

offer perfect spaces for entertaining,

more casual dining or simply relaxing.

Guests can indulge in a leisurely meal

prepared by Chef Raul, served by a

personal butler in the “Old Boy’s Club”

for example, surrounded by trinkets

transporting one to British schooldays.

In “The Mad Hatter” Lagoon

Suite, a huge, signature-style “Our

Generation” series cartoon sculpture

by Gao Xiaowu looms over the outdoor

seating area. This is a distinctive

statement to the room’s theme which

incorporates many original design

features. Meanwhile, other playful

decor elements such as quirky crockery

and innovative lighting shaped as top

hats remind guests of the mad hatter

or a world where everything is pure






Various integrated engineering techniques

have created a sustainable shell around

the building. To be as efficient as possible,

special ventilation louvers channel hot air

out of the building while letting in cooler

air flow throughout. This feature, along

with multiple energy saving features,

allows the building to use 44% less energy

than conventional hotels. Water taken

from the pools is filtered through the

hotel’s innovative grey water system.

The all-glass facade and thermal insulation

create an individual microclimate for

the complex itself, providing protection

from the harsh exterior weather as

well as reducing the building’s energy

consumption. According to its project

description, Parkview Green is a

“neighbourhood within a neighbourhood,

a controlled and highly efficient year-round

green space to live, work, and play”
