Mandarin Oriental to open hotel in Shenzhen

Mandarin Oriental has chosen mainland China’s Shenzhen, a popular shopping destination located just across the border from Hong Kong, as the site of its new hotel.

 

Scheduled to open in about three years’ time in a 400-meter tower near downtown Shenzhen, the hotel will offer 190 rooms and suites. Among the facilities planned are a rooftop restaurant and bar and a 1,600 square meter spa offering traditional Chinese beauty and relaxation treatments.

 

The new hotel will not be the first in China to offer luxury accommodations among the clouds. The Jin Jiang Hotel, for one, welcomes guests atop the 632-meter Shanghai Tower, China’s tallest high-rise.

 

The high-end Mandarin Oriental hotel is part of a large-scale development project for the Shum Yip’s Upper Hills area, which will be home to office buildings as well as new apartments and retail outlets.

 

There are already three Mandarin Oriental hotels in nearby Hong Kong, including the group’s very first establishment. The brand has a strong presence throughout the rest of Asia as well, with hotels in China, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, the Philippines, Singapore and Japan.
