Meliá Shanghai Hongqiao will make its debut as the brand’s flagship property in China opening this month.
Located just minutes from Shanghai’s National Exhibition & Convention Centre, the luxury urban hotel is Meliá Hotels International’s third property in China.
The modern property features 187 rooms with high ceilings and fabric-lined walls, featuring marble and walnut wood.
The design merges contemporary décor with accents of oriental art. It is also home to Merkado, a dual Mediterranean-Pan Asian dining experience helmed by award-winning Chef Abel Lopez Reina.
YHI Spa, Meliá’s signature wellness sanctuary, promises to pamper, boasting Shanghai’s first and only Aqua Healing and Chakra Vibration therapies.
Marko Janssen, general manager of Meliá Shanghai Hongqiao, commented: “Every traveller deserves a truly uplifting experience, one that is bespoke and memorable – this is what we want our guests to feel the moment they walk through the door.
“Our service will focus on going above and beyond, paying attention to every detail for a personalised experience.
“Building on the legacy of the Meliá brand, we’re thrilled to bring to life our ethos of Spanish service to distinguish ourselves as the benchmark for hospitality in Shanghai and more widely in China.”
Meliá Shanghai Hongqiao is ideal for discerning travellers offering a quality service and the brands revered Spanish hospitality whether business or pleasure.
On the eastern flank of the hotel are three Garden Villas that feature traditional Chinese design and touches, complemented by well-appointed amenities.
Each three-bedroom villa is wrapped around its own garden and outdoor lounge, placing an emphasis on privacy.
Villa guests can enjoy in-room check-in, limousine service, 24/7 butler service and private chef dinners upon request.
