Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts’ newest flagship hotel is set to open in the heart of Shanghai on the 29 June 2013. The 508-room Jing An Shangri-La located in West Shanghai will envelop guests in a world of luxury and modern glamour in one of the world’s most exciting and influential international cities. Luxuriously appointed guestrooms will occupy the top 29 floors of the property’s 60-storey main tower, while fine dining restaurants, offices and designer retail outlets will be located on the lower levels. The spacious guestrooms all boast floor-to-ceiling windows for specular views of the city, heated marble bathroom floors as well as an LCD television and digital clock embedded in the bathroom mirrors.
Every detail of the hotel has been meticulously considered, from the staff uniforms designed by top Chinese designer Han Feng, to over 80 intricate silk lanterns that appear to float magically in the Summer Palace Chinese restaurant, to the commissioning of large-scale artwork from two of the most renowned Chinese contemporary artists.
The hotel is located at the cornerstone of the new Jing An Kerry Centre, a 450,000-square-metre integrated complex with prime retail, office and residential space located in the fashionable Jing An District in Puxi, Shanghai. Jing An Shangri-La will present an approachable contemporary design that evokes a strong sense of place complemented by Shangri-La’s inimitable heartfelt hospitality.
