Four Season Shanghai

 

Hotel Spy

A meeting of Oriental luxury and Western elegance

Where

Boasting incredible vistas of the Shanghai metropolis, the graceful Four Seasons Hotel Pudong Shanghai greets you with a hearty welcome.

It is located in the heart of the financial district in Pudong where business is certainly bustling. Yet you can escape this urban cloud whilst still being close to the action.

It is around 10 minutes on foot from a host of attractions such as the Shanghai World Financial Centre as well as the IFC Mall and soaring Jinmao Tower.

Tell me about it

This 187 room venue boasts many stunning floor to ceiling views overlooking one of the most vibrant cities on the planet. With enough diversity and excitement to make you start your own Gangnam style dance, let’s delve a little deeper.

Plenty of unusual wooden furnishing and high-end leathers have been used to ensure the experience is just as unique. This includes plenty of fine marble and local art deco interiors that provide both inspiration and tranquillity.

The Pearl View rooms are a joy to behold. These take in majestic views across the glistening Oriental Pearl Tower. Meanwhile, the interiors perfectly blend together Chinese art and a host of plush furnishings to ensure you are floating on cloud nine.

Presidential Suite

But the main highlight is the Presidential Suite set 39 floors up. As exclusive as a ticket to the Men’s Final at Centre Court, this gem offers three bedrooms and a wealth of impressive features.

Entertaining friends? Don’t worry as you can whip up a cocktail in your very own private bar. There are also plenty of dedicated lounge areas, an office and not one but two bathrooms if you need room to powder your nose or wig!

Hungry for more

The main restaurant is Shàng-Xí which offers a number of delectable Chinese dishes to tempt your palette. Choose from a breadth of Cantonese and Eastern dishes under the helm of Executive Chef Weimar Gomez. With less than 25 seats this really is hidden beauty at its best.

Check out this month a special four course delight, paying homage to the Andy Warhol exhibition taking place in Shanghai during the summer. In addition, Camelia offers more informal dining with plenty of fresh seafood ahoy and salads.

Indulge

Don’t miss the minimal outdoor terrace or take a dip in the heated pool on floor forty one with sweeping skyline vistas. You won’t get cold as it remains at a constant 80 degrees. Too hot to handle!

VIP Spa Suites are home to whirlpool and rain showers with enough room for two guests. For all you busy gentlemen, the Hello Handsome treatment should bring you back down to terra firma.

It incorporates exfoliation thanks to a wealth of Guerlain products not to mention a luxurious mask and eye treatment aiding congestion and promoting a youthful appearance. Wave goodbye to wrinkles and say hello to indulgence!

By the way

For the metropolitan business man about town, don’t forget their executive club lounge. For a small fee you can obtain access to a range of benefits from round the clock concierge services to cocktails and canapés.

Now that’s the business.
