Serene high-rise in historic Nanjing with a sublime spa and panoramic lake and mountain views

The Lowdown

Towering above tranquil Xuanwu Lake, the Shangri-La Hotel, Nanjing peers down onto the paddleboat-strewn waters and lake gardens lined with temples and teahouses. The interiors channel the local scenery with a calming, Zen-like decor that features a muted violet palette and plum blossom motifs. In the guestrooms, floor-to-ceiling windows look out at the smoky Purple Mountain in the distance. Head to Jiangnan Wok to sample chef Hou’s authentic Huaiyang creations, or see culinary professionals work their magic at Café Xuan’s live cooking stations. Relax with a dip in the indoor pool or splurge on a traditional Chinese massage at CHI, the SPA.

In the Area

Having twice served as China’s capital city, Nanjing has more to offer than being a mere layover point between Shanghai and Beijing. Make the trek up the daunting 392 steps to visit the mausoleum of Dr. Sun Yat-Sen, the founding father of the Republic of China. Be sure to visit the memorial in the morning to avoid the afternoon tourist rush; the lush scenery is worth the early morning wake-up call. Reward yourself later by chowing down on juicy burgers and shoestring fries at cult burger joint Motu. For some retail therapy, Aqua City is Nanjing’s newest mall, and Librairie Avant-Garde is a huge indie bookstore located in an underground garage.

Excellent Hospitality

Our wife and I spent our birthdays in Nanjing and we booked the Shangri-La Nanjing because it’s nicely located next to the Xuanwu Lake and within very close walking distance to a metro station. We told the hotel about our birthdays and they immediately upgraded our standard room to a suite. What a surprise and warm experience. Even to our surprise, the hotel arranged birthday cakes delivered to the restaurant and our room on the days of our birthdays! My special thanks and appreciation to Eve and her colleagues. She is exceptionally friendly and customer orientated. She took really well of her customers and treated us with heart. This makes our birthdays trip a truly unforgettable ones.

Well done Eve and Shangri-La Nanjing????????????

Nice place with kind and friendly service

Good place. Great service! The breakfast was special and delicious with local street food. People are kind. Especially Allen Zhang at concierge who was really friendly and helpful. Totally recommend stay here when visit Nanjing

Excellent food, even better service

I enjoy the stay in the hotel. Breakfast at Cafe Juan has great variety of local and international foods.
But nothing beats the view from the Horizon club and the service there. Especially from Mrs. Audrey.
