NUO, the Chinese word for promise, is the latest five-star property to open in Beijing and offers guests a fascinating glimpse into Ming dynasty art and culture. The 438-room hotel, which opened in June, is eye-catching from the start, with 10 towering porcelain vases in the lobby and walls adorned with originals by Chinese artists.

This artistic look is carried through to the rooms, which feature silk-patterned walls, stylish furnishing and floor-to-ceiling views. The main meeting space includes the opulent 1,600sqm Yongle Grand Ballroom, which caters for 1,600 for cocktails and which can be split into four separate areas. There are 14 additional meeting rooms and the fifth-floor O'Bar has a 500sqm terrace that can be used for events.

Incentive options for groups include tea ceremonies and tastings for up to 12 at the Yuan Tea House or simply relaxing in the spacious basement spa.

Signature restaurants Nuo'Ki and Jia, the latter which specialises in Chinese cuisine and which offers ten private rooms for events, had yet to open when C&IT visited but if N'Joy, the all-day dining concept which offers international cuisine, is anything to go by, the dining options sound promising.

Located in the Chaoyang district of Beijing with its buzzing nightlife, the hotel is also a ten-minute walk from the 798 Art District, a vast area of disused factories that now house contemporary art galleries.

C&I Traveller stayed at the Nuo Beijing from 3-7 August 2015
