Art Deco–inspired beauty on the Bund, with spectacular views of the Huangpu River and city skyline
The Peninsula’s 235 guest rooms and suites are some of the city’s most spacious, with classic Art Deco furnishings and glorious marble bathrooms with big soaking tubs. They’re tricked out with the latest Peninsula technology and many have staggering views of the Bund and Huangpu River. Those views are also a draw for Sir Elly’s, which serves European cuisine created by a French-trained chef. The extensive spa offers elaborate full-day “Journeys” as well as shorter treatments, a pool, and gym, while the Peninsula Academy offers cultural experiences like a Rolls-Royce tour of historic Shanghai.
In the Area
The Peninsula is centrally located in Shanghai, right on the Bund, which is known for its top restaurants and fashion boutiques. The city’s other culinary standouts include the newly opened Da Dong Duck Restaurant, a branch of the revered Beijing roast-duck institution, where you can ignore the 150-page menu and order the signature dish. To glimpse the fashion-forward city’s history, take a stroll along Wukang Road and the surrounding area, with stops at the Shanghai Propaganda Poster Art Centre, which documents China through the 20th century, and Hong Merchant, a gallery specializing in contemporary art and antique furniture from the French Concession period in the 1920s.
