Welcome to China Jumeirah!!
Absolutely stunning architecture externally and internally. Embraces a true Chinese theme in the gorgeous and vibrant Arte Cafe & Lounge. Spent several hours here just hanging out drinking from their extensive herbal tea collection, service excellent and food 5 star.
Great use of electronics throughout the impressive lobby with images dancing on the ceiling and other walls and a small group of live muscians playing as a center piece.
Enjoyed one of their largest suites +/- 1000 sq.ft. which is not big big but it's quite big for Shanghai standards. Everything worked well as to be expected with an almost brand new hotel. Bed extremely comfortable consistent with global Jumeirah standards. Spacious bathroom with separate loo (toilet), big soaking tub, twin basins and one of my favorites L'Occitane toiletries.
The suite enjoyed a 4 seater diningroom table and huge amounts of cupboard (closet) space! Large electronic safe always useful when traveling. Quaint Chinese writing desk with great lighting.
Breakfast was exceptional with the Chefs preparing for me one of the best Eggs Benedict on that side of the Pudong River!
One of the best hotel gyms ever. Great machines, plenty of treadmills. Stunning indoor swimming pool. Spa not yet opened when I visited in August 2012.
Regarding the location it is one of the closest hotels to the Shanghai Convention Center so that will be good for some. Metro right out side so easy to get to all parts of the city if you can handle the underground. Took a taxi one night to the Bund was suprised to get there in just 12 minutes.
Overall a superb and exciting hotel property. Staff exceptional and for my part delighted to see Jumeirah in Shanghai.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel Shanghai is perfectly placed for business and leisure. Located in the heart of Pudong, the hotel is directly opposite the Shanghai New International Expo Centre and close to the green expanse of Century Park. Metro line 7 is accessed directly from the basement of the Himalayas Centre, allowing easy citywide connections. The Maglev train station is just a short walk away for speedy seven-minute transfers to/from Pudong International Airport. Construction of the Himalayas Centre started in 2006 under the direction of world-renowned architect Arata Isozaki, who also created the Barcelona Olympic Stadium and Los Angeles MoMA. Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel opened in March 2011. Inspired by Chinese cultural elements and traditional feng shui principles, architect Arata Isozaki designed the landmark Himalayas Center, where Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel is located. A three-dimensional Urban Forest comprising dramatically sculpted columns defines the central section of the Himalayas Centre. It also carries an important loading capacity function and provides an arresting entrance to the Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel. Tien Shu Patterned Walls Wrapped around the base of the two towers presents a conceptual interpretation of ancient Chinese characters from the Tien Shu by Cang Jie. Special windows have also been custom made to subtly insert between the characters allowing light to flood the hotel interiors. The Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel tower is constructed in the form of the Yu Cong, an ancient Chinese ritual object formed from an outer square representing earth, and inner circle representing heaven. The cylindrical atrium stretches 14 levels through the centre of the tower. ... more less
