Overview

City escape just an hour outside Shanghai, with a spa, two pools and a 200-acre organic farm

The Lowdown

Between Kunshan and Suzhou, around an hour from Shanghai, this lakeside hotel is a favorite with Shanghainese looking for a relaxing weekend escape. The guestrooms make the most of the rural setting beside Yancheng Lake Park, with floor-to-ceiling windows framing views of the park to the north and the lake to the south. The rooms start at a spacious 484 square feet and have one King or two Double beds, plus 42-inch flat-screen TVs, marble bathrooms with walk-in showers, and modern decor in a choice of light (yellow and gold) or dark (brown and green) color schemes. The popular Signature Lake View Rooms also have private balconies overlooking the lake. Downstairs, the signature Yi Feng Court restaurant dishes up Cantonese fare prepared with ingredients from the hotel’s 200-acre organic farm, as well as from Yangcheng Lake, which is home to the region’s famous hairy crab. There’s also the Essence restaurant for Western dishes, and afternoon tea served in the Luwei Lobby Lounge. For sybarites there’s the Willow Stream Spa and the indoor and outdoor pools, while parents can make the most of the hotel’s kids club (for ages three to 12), which keeps youngsters entertained making scarecrows, painting, birdwatching and harvesting honey from the farm’s 25 hives.

In the Area

A popular escape from Shanghai, the Fairmont Yangcheng Lake lets visitors make the most of the great outdoors. Ask the concierge to organize a fishing, biking or hiking excursion within Yangcheng Lake Park, or perfect your croquet swing on the hotel’s manicured lawn. Golf lovers have easy access to the 18-hole Grand Shanghai International & Holiday Resort, or you can head farther afield to the 1,000-year-old town of Zhou Zhuang or the Museum of Kun Opera.

Arrived at hotel and was immediately received by management. Check in was efficient and we were escorted to our rooms on the club room. Later on, we took the shuttle and took in the scenery of the wonderful surroundings. A beautiful place and great service.

Great family destination near shanghai

We stayed here for 3 nights, with 2 small kids, seeking a short getaway from Shanghai. The hotel was very family friendly, with kind and attentive staff, and a lot of activities that our kids liked- including bee keeping tour, soap making class, and cooking class. The environment was also great, with lots of green space and even a dedicated farm.
We stayed in Fairmont gold floor, which was great for having access to the concierge desk led by Sophia who was super helpful, as well as solid food and drinks throughout the day.
This is definitely somewhere where we would love to come again with the family.
