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
The rooms are very nice with the river view.
Neat , the beds and pillows are excellent.
The staff are very friendly and helpful. When we arrived late at 6pm our room was supposed to be ready for check in and was not. They upgraded us to the grand delux room and also gave us a bottle of wine complimentary for the inconvenience. Worth the money you spend
The Service was impeccable and the hotel was superb. They always went above and beyond as they anticipated our needs. The Front Office Manager and Team are top notch and well versed in their roles. The rooms and common areas are both exquisite. Every detail imaginable went into the room furnishings and amenities. Thanks!
This is one of the best hotels I have stayed in Shanghai. The location is within walking distance to the old city and the bund. It is relative quiet given its location in the central city. I arrived past mid-night. The check-in was relatively fast. The staff member who brought my luggage to the room was very polite and attentive. He took time to explain the features of the room. The breakfast buffet was great. Every service staff member I interacted with was very friendly. The bathroom was awesome. The linen was very comfortable. I enjoyed my stay although it was just one night. I will definitely stay here again.
