Designed as an ‘urban resort’, this chic hotel has attracted the smartest crowd since it opened in 2009. Tranquil, spacious and elegant with no expense spared, and thoughtful design, has created a truly unique property, which is one of our favourite in the city! The lobby is the focal point of the hotel and home to the Long Bar, library and lounge. The hotel has been expertly designed and surrounded by tall trees to shield it from view and also help alleviate the stresses that come with being in a large city. The rooms are spacious, well equipped for leisure and business guests and offer great views of Shanghai. This hotel is different to other hotels with its main focus in design and sleekness. The location away from the Bund can be considered as a negative, but it is only a short drive away and is the obvious choice for those who prefer boutique or unique properties with a strong focus on art and design.
