Waldorf Astoria’s locations in Shanghai, Beijing and Chengdu will all begin offering a special room package for kids and introduce an afternoon tea program. Waldorf Astoria Beijing also opened a new interactive educational area June 23 called the Kid’s Edutainment Club.
At the hotels’ afternoon tea, kids can play and get their picture with a life-sized Hamleys bear. Specialty food and desserts will also be available, including a Hamleys teddy bear-shaped snack and Waldorf Astoria’s signature red velvet cake.
Children staying in one of the hotel’s specially designed kid’s rooms will receive a brightly colored backpack full of rainbow pens, a water bottle and a teddy bear. These rooms will also provide colorful tents for kids to sleep and play in as well as a kids-sized bathrobe and pair of slippers.
The Kid’s Edutainment Club at Waldorf Astoria Beijing, open to in-house guests and the public, provides a variety of interactive spaces including Art and Craft, Interactive Technology and Reading, Building Blocks and Logical Thinking and Recreation Zones. The summer program offers a wealth of skill-building opportunities, such as cookie-making, painting, storytelling, Lego-building and sand bottle art creating.
The kid’s program is available for children ages three to ten who are accompanied by adults. It is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends until July 6 and every day from July 7 until September 2.
