The hotel also features ’Stambul, expertly planned by Autoban, a Turkish lifestyle-dining venue celebrating the famed influences of Ottoman cuisine, where classic dishes are reinterpreted and delivered spontaneously and theatrically. Completing the culinary portfolio is MEI LI, a fine dining Chinese restaurant where the food provides the narrative for an explorative journey through the Imperial Palaces of old Beijing, serving Chinese recipes inspired by the most popular dishes served over centuries – including faithfully crafted classic menu items, such as the world-renowned Peking Duck and Beggar’s Chicken. This venue too was masterfully designed by abConcept.
Rounding up the hotel’s rich experiences, NOOR SPA is the ultimate wellness retreat, set in a serene cove of sensory design. The pool features an aquatic haven where rays of natural sunlight expand the infinity element of this feature. Outdoor sun loungers are tastefully complimented by lush landscaped and vertical gardens.
From lobby to room, Grand Hyatt’s signature approach to luxury truly embodies the landmark status of this much-anticipated development.
