Located on the Huangpu River, among the historic buildings of the Bund, The Peninsula is five-star oasis in the bustle of cosmopolitan Shanghai. The city is a dazzling East-meets-West metropolis and The Peninsula, with its grand proportions and richly elegant interior, perfectly evokes the city’s 1920s heritage.
After a busy day spent taking in the sights and sounds of this exciting city, a visit to the Peninsula Spa is a must. All treatment rooms have underfloor heating, warmed beds and soothing music, and after your treatment – from holistic massage to warm Chinese herb poultice – try the tropical rain showers and steam rooms, where iridescent lights and ice fountains make this the ultimate sensuous experience.
The 235-room Peninsula Shanghai offers the height of modern luxe living. Cutting-edge technology, like 46in plasma TVs and iPod docks, marries with sumptuous furnishings in slick Art Deco style. Larger suites, with living areas and walk-in wardrobes, are all set on the corners of the building, with two sets of picture windows to make the most of the stunning views.
Relax in The Peninsula’s serene spa, work-out with a personal trainer at the fitness centre, or take a dip in the spectacular pool before enjoying fresh flavours and detoxifying drinks on the adjoining outdoor terrace. Beyond the hotel, The Bund district is a fascinating area to explore, famous for its mix of classical architecture.
The Peninsula Shanghai is famed for its extravagant afternoon tea served in The Lobby – a vision of old-world glamour. Sir Elly’s restaurant serves modern European dishes in sumptuous surroundings, and its terrace is perfect for dining with a view. For authentic Cantonese cuisine, head to Yi Long Court, while Salon de Ning is the place for after-dinner cocktails and dancing.
