China. The Peninsula Shanghai hotel to be a jewel on the Bund

Monday, 24 November 2008

 

Opening in late 2009, the ninth property in The Peninsula Hotels' portfolio fronts the historic Bund with spectacular views of the Bund, Huangpu River, Pudong and the gardens of the former British Consulate, and blends with the historic architecture of its landmark neighbours along the Bund -- a UNESCO-designated Modern Heritage Site.

The opening of The Peninsula Shanghai heralds the return of parent company The Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, Limited to its roots, as it owned and operated four of Shanghai's most celebrated hotels -- The Kalee, Majestic, Palace and Astor House Hotels -- in the first half of the last century. With a distinguished heritage as Asia's oldest hotel company, The Peninsula Hotels is proud that its newest hotel returns to Shanghai, one of the world's most exciting cities.

Superbly located on the historic Bund in the very heart of Shanghai, on the banks of the Huangpu River and conveniently located near the shopping capital of Nanjing Road, The Peninsula Shanghai offers commanding city and garden views, luxurious comfort, sophisticated facilities, extraordinary dining options and the legendary Peninsula service.

A homage to Shanghai in the 1920s and 1930s, The Peninsula Shanghai recreates the look and feel of this glamorous era when Shanghai was feted as "The Paris of the East", yet also offers the latest in state-of-the-art technology, services and amenities.

Guest facilities and services include three superb gastronomic choices, wedding facilities, recreation options, luxury retail shops and other business services including customised airport and transportation service and valet parking.

Shanghai is celebrated for its glorious Art Deco architecture, and thus The Peninsula Shanghai's design brief was dictated by this historic architectural movement from the 1920s and 30s in order to blend in with its neighbours on the Bund.
