The kind folks from Shangri-La's China World Summit Wing, Beijing actually invited me down to count down to 2014 to their hotel! After much discussion with c(hubby), I agreed. They actually only agreed to host me only but as a newly wed, it would be so hard to not celebrate New Year without my hubby! So I did my sums and decided to pay for c(hubby)'s air ticket! China World Summit Wing covered the food expenses!
China World Summit Wing is known as the tallest hotel in Beijing and also one of the most luxurious hotel of the city!
After about 6 hours' flying, we soon arrived in Beijing! The hotel sent a pickup service and soon we arrived at China World Summit Wing!
We were then ushered to the Resident's Foyer on the 64th floor, where the main lobby was.
China World Summit Wing is the tallest building in Beijing which makes it one of the most popular places in Beijing to visit due to it's spectacular view!
I love that for ALL hotel guests, one can enjoy (non-alcoholic) drinks anytime at the Resident's Foyer (hotel's lobby lounge)! 24 hours! Plus enjoy canapes and snacks during certain times of the day!
We were soon ushered to our rooms.
I love bathtubs! Immediately ran a bath with my bathbomb and took a good soak!
Don't be deceived by the mirror!
You can actually activate it and watch television on it!
It was really sweet of them to prepare welcome snacks!
We soon freshened up and checked out the gym and the pool before heading down for dinner!
Beautiful and spacious gym. As a gym junkie, I was practically salivating at the gorgeous gym!
Beautiful beautiful beautiful pool! We had wanted to take a dip but unfortunately, due to our tight schedule, we couldn't find time! 🙁 Hope to be able to have the opportunity to come back next time!
China World Summit Wing is located in Beijing's Central Business District where there is THE biggest shopping centre just downstairs!
We adjourned to Nadaman, a famous Japanese restaurant residing in China World Summit Wing! Nadaman has had a chain of restaurants since 1830 and have been known for their “kaiseki” aka “the art of transforming the blessings of nature into food” cuisine. Not only do they specialise in “kaiseki” cuisine, they also feature teppanyaki, sushi and a la carte dining. One can also book their very stylish private dining rooms for special exclusive occasions.
We met Chef Karasawa Hiroaki who customised a very elaborate Japanese dinner for us.
Appetizer: Boiled greens and white asparagus curd with crab meat and fish roe.
Sashimi: Assorted of tuna belly, flounder and scampi
Simmered dish: Lobster with julienne leek with graze sauce
Intermediate dish: Gateau style crab meat and organic tomato salad with caviar
Grilled dish: Thin sliced of prime beef with teri sauce garnished baked vegetables
Sushi: Assorted 5 kinds nigiri sushi served with seafood and chicken clear soup served earthen ware tea pot container

The whole meal totally blowed me away. This has to be one of the best Japanese meals I have had anywhere! Till today, I'm still thinking about the meal at Nadaman. The sashimi and sushi was so fresh and delicious!
What a perfect meal to end a perfect day!
