An exercise in luxurious opulence, Wanda Reign on The Bund impresses with its jaw-dropping display of glamour and glitz. Designed by Foster + Partners and Heatherwick Studio, two prominent, award-winning British architecture firms, the building’s gleaming exterior hints at the grandeur awaiting guests inside. Jade inlaid floors and immense columns greet guests in the lobby while high-backed chairs offer respite from the city outside. It is no different throughout the rest of the space, classic Art-Deco elements are scattered all around – chesterfield sofas in rich colours make up the seating options for the restaurants, sparkling chandeliers dangle precariously overhead, and thick brocade curtains are pushed open to offer a view of the glorious Shanghai skyline. Though remarkably obnoxious, the furnishings have a modern styling that render them unique and eye-catching, rather than painful to the eyes. It is quite an experience to simply explore the space.
Newly opened in 2016, the hotel joins other iconic luxury properties on Shanghai’s Bund, the buzzing city’s luxury waterfront area. Here you’ll find plenty of fashionable locals enjoying the river view, shopping and dining at world-class establishments and outstanding buildings that make up the city’s skyline. Take your time to explore the area because there is much to see and do.
But it is more than its location, outstanding decor, refined restaurants and plush furnishings that give Wanda Reign on The Bund its right to label itself a seven-star hotel. It is, more importantly, the exceptional service that has the wealthy of Shanghai flocking to this one-of-a-kind hotel.
How to Get There
A fantastic hotel with second to non hospitality food and facilities ...the rooms are to die for with fantastic views across the river ... it is stunning at night with all the buildings lit up .. this finishes about 11.30pm.. I would not hesitate in recommending this hotel .. just need to mention Lynn at breakfast .. a lovely lady where nothing was too much trouble .. fantastic stay ...
This hotel is the example of high standards, extreme luxury and flawless service.
From the lobby to the room, everywhere you go the details are extremely impressive and you can see high standard amenities all over.
The food is extremely good with very friendly and attentive staff.
You can find high tech gadgets in the room and in the lobby, must try the " Yunji" at the lobby.
Definitely a place to come back.
This a nice hotel that is a bit on the garish side. It’s ArtDeco run amok in its style but the beds are comfortable, the shower large and the room amenities what you would expect from a first class hotel. The location is excellent for the Bund and the Yu Garden. The Metro is about a 15 minute walk. The breakfast buffet is large with many international options.
That said, there are some startling inconsistencies. The huge lobby has virtually no seating so if you are waiting for someone you must stand, at check-in the hotel reserves a huge amount on your credit card the unused portion of which is cancelled when you leave and taxis are hard to come by (although the hotel is happy to call you the Chinese equivalent of Uber).
