Jumeirah Opens First Hotel In China

Dubai-based hotel operator Jumeirah has made its entry into China with the opening of its first property in the country. Situated in the heart of Pudong district opposite the Shanghai New International Expo Centre and part of the landmark Himalayas Centre arts and cultural hub, the Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel Shanghai features interior design from KCA International whose portfolio includes the iconic Burj al Arab.


The 401 guestrooms and suites are decorated in a contemporary Chinese style, featuring custom crafted darkwood furnishings and Chinese artwork alongside modern amenities including luxury bedding, semi-open marble bathroom, 42-inch LCD television, complimentary high-speed internet access, replica oriental scholar’s workdesk with fully-integrated connectivity panel, in-room safe, minibar and premium Chinese tea set. The hotel also offers Executive Residences providing the convenience and indulgence of a luxury apartment, with the 80-square meter space including a fully-equipped living area, kitchen and a grand master bedroom.


Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel Shanghai’s 4 restaurants and bars provide guests and locals with an array of new dining options. The all-day dining Arte Cafe and Lounge serves bistro favorites, including signature Shanghainese, Southeast Asian and Mediterranean big-bowl noodles, amidst the unique atmosphere of the 16-meter high lobby. Shang-High Cuisine celebrates the finest dining traditions, elevating local and regional flavours to new levels of sophistication through premium organic ingredients and contemporary presentations, while J-Mix serves gourmet sushi, sashimi, ramen and teppanyaki in a whimsical space decorated with paper moon laterns, pod seating and white pebbles. Completing the quartet is The Grill Room, a rustic restaurant surrounded by grey-brick walls reclaimed from the city’s alleys and serving the finest grade imported Australian Wagyu and Angus steaks.


With one of the largest pillar-less ballrooms in China, the hotel is ideal for hosting premier banquets, cocktail parties and conferences for up to 800 guests. 7 elegantly appointed meeting rooms cater for intimate events, while the 5,000-square meter Infinity Garden is a unique al fresco venue with barbecue pits and a 300-square meter event stage. For recreation, The Spa at Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel is an urban sanctuary where guests can refresh and rejuvenate to traditional Chinese treatments in tranquil settings, saunas and hot stone baths, while the 24-hour fitness centre offers state-of-the-art equipment, a hot yoga area, a stunning 20-meter lap pool and Tai Chi classes.


Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel Shanghai will soon be joined by 5 other properties (Jumeirah Guangzhou, Jumeirah Hangzhou, Jumeirah Macau, Jumeirah Qing Shui Bay Resort Sanya and Jumeirah Thousand Islands Lake Resort) under development in China. Within the Asia-Pacific region, Jumeirah Group is set to expand to Indonesia (Jumeirah Bali) and Thailand (Jumeirah Bangkok) with new hotel projects.
