The PuLi Hotel and Spa, Shanghai

Yes, the PuLi delivers all the quintessential perks of a modern hotel, yet it also offers one the most valuable commodities in Shanghai - some peace and quiet (no easy feat considering it's in the center of bustling Jing’an). The PuLi’s understated design (a sleek, black-tiled lobby; gray Shanghai brick tiled bathrooms; fishscale lattice pocket doors; tables topped with slate-colored inkstone) echo a far-flung tropical resort. The gem of this urban retreat is the 5,380-square-foot Anantara Spa, which has a lap pool overlooking the beautifully landscaped Jing'an Park.

It features 20 suites that bring guests back to the heyday of Shanghai glamour with colonial-style design details like timber floors and romantic poster canopy beds.

Wanda Reign on the Bund

‘Go big or go home’ should be the slogan at the Wanda Reign. Your jaw will drop as soon as you enter the colossal lobby, which is covered from top to bottom in marble and jade and adorned with impressive artwork (just look to the 26 x 26 foot painting Splendid Orient by contemporary Chinese artist, Shi Qi). The only thing more dazzling than the hotel's interior is the stunning view of The Bund, Huangpu River, Pudong skyline and Yu Garden from the 193 luxurious guestrooms.
