Once you’ve filled up on bear-shaped treats and red velvet cake, spread out and play with a kid-friendly room package. The kids will love their own room, complete with colorful tents, toys and personal bath amenities.

The little ones slip into their own slippers and bathrobes after bath time, ready to hit the town with their own accessories provided by the hotel. Let the kids load up their new backpacks for a day of sightseeing, including a complimentary water bottle, coloring pens and a plush teddy bear.

With a mix of educational and entertaining activities lined up, you’ll soon see why the Kid’s Club program is called Edutainment. At the Waldorf Astoria Beijing, The Club is open to guests as well as the public and features unique and fun learning experiences with a variety of zones, including reading and interactive technology activities, arts and crafts, building blocks, logical thinking and recreation.

Let the little ones explore on their own and find what most interests them. Watch as the kids work on skill-building programs in a way that’s fun and entertaining, creating lasting memories with the family on vacation while bettering their education.

Kids ages 3–10, under the supervision of Waldorf Astoria staff, enjoy Lego building and unleash their creativity in sand art, baking, painting and storytelling during the summer program. You can relax back at the room, in the spa or head out on the town shopping, dining and exploring by day as the kids play and learn.

The Kid’s Club is available through July 6, 9 a.m.– 6 p.m., on weekends, and July 7–Sept. 2, daily. Booking information for Beijing, Chengdu and Shanghai is available online or by phone, but check out the resort homepage for more options and availability.
