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