The design concept of Sofitel Xiong’an emphasizes its harmonious co-existence with nature. Graceful and soft interiors evoke gentle landscapes, greenery, mountains and rivers. Original paintings and inspiring poetry lift the spirits, along with a balance of ancient and modern furnishings. A sense of ritual and order prevails throughout the hotel’s common spaces and guestrooms, reflecting the hotel’s underlying environmentally-conscious ethos. Above all, Sofitel Xiong’an prioritizes the well-being of its guests with Sofitel Fitness and Sofitel Spa for relaxation and pampering, the brand’s signature in-room indulgent bath service, and the world-renowned Sofitel MyBed™ in every guestroom and suite.
An outstanding effort went into making Sofitel Xiong’an a place of well-being, beginning with an environmentally-conscious approach to construction. The external walls of the hotel use thermal insulation and rock wool to achieve a superior heat transfer coefficient, other energy-efficient items include a high-efficiency magnetic suspension chiller and LED lighting. Air quality throughout the hotel is pristine, thanks to a two-stage filtration system and whole process pollutant control platform. An all-dimensional intelligent system monitors the entire life cycle of building systems. Most importantly, the barrier-free design of Sofitel Xiong’an ensures an easy and welcoming experience for all guests, regardless of age or mobility.
In keeping with its eco-conscious values, Sofitel Xiong’an has partnered with a local non-profit organization to help protect endangered birds in their natural habitat of Baiyangdian Lake. The largest freshwater lake in the North China Plain, Baiyangdian Lake is a spectacular expanse comprised of 143 lakes, surrounded by an ecological protected zone. Sofitel Xiong’an is committed to supporting the sustainability of this area for current and future generations to enjoy.
Xiong’an Business Service Center, where Sofitel Xiong’an resides, is situated in the central area of Xiong’an New District, adjacent to Xiong’an Urban Planning Exhibition Hall, Xiong’an Country Park, and Yuerong Park. Beijing is about 100km to the north and Tianjin 100km to the east, positioning Xiong’an New Area as an economic hub in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei triangle. Each city is just an hour away from the hotel via high-speed rail, while international airports are accessible at Beijing, Tianjin, and Shijiazhuang.
