Business Traveller (Asia-Pacific) - - ADVERTISEMENT FEATURE - Grand Kempin­ski Ho­tel Shanghai, Lu­ji­azui Ring Road 1288, 200120, Shanghai, china; +86 21 3867 8888; kempin­

Sit­u­ated in the heart of Shanghai’s fi­nan­cial district Lu­ji­azui, the Grand Kempin­ski Ho­tel Shanghai of­fers a pre­mium base for dis­cern­ing busi­ness travellers.

Clues to the level of lux­ury can be found ev­ery­where: take the en­try-level rooms, for ex­am­ple, start at a min­i­mum of 43 sqm, which is more than most com­peti­tors. What’s more, over half of the ho­tel’s 686 guest rooms and suites boast stun­ning views of the iconic Bund, while the oth­ers look out over the city’s glit­ter­ing sky­line.

And of course, all rooms boast el­e­gant in­te­ri­ors with mod­ern fa­cil­i­ties to en­sure guests have a rest­ful stay with ac­cess to everything they need.

Busi­ness travellers in par­tic­u­lar will also en­joy ac­cess to the largest ex­ec­u­tive lounge in Shanghai, with a a full buf­fet break­fast and 270-de­gree views over Lu­ji­azui and the Bund.

Guests will find a range of well-ap­pointed fa­cil­i­ties to cater to any meet­ings or events they need to or­gan­ise, all hand­ily lo­cated on the same floor mak­ing it con­ve­nient to co­or­di­nate larger events and break­out ses­sions. The new Huangpu Ball­room is per­fect for big gath­er­ings, and is lauded for its stun­ning Bund view.

For less for­mal af­fairs, the newly ren­o­vated lobby lounge has proven a big hit as a ca­sual meet­ing spot, par­tic­u­larly dur­ing the serv­ing of our de­li­cious af­ter­noon tea.

More sub­stan­tial meals can be found in our fleet of fine­din­ing restau­rant out­lets, which are ready to sat­isfy guests from all cor­ners of the globe. The ex­quis­ite Span­ish restau­rant Al­bero is a rare find in Shanghai, of­fer­ing up Mediter­ranean creations in a stylish set­ting. At the Ital­ian restau­rant Ac­qua guests can en­joy authen­tic dishes in an open kitchen for­mat. In­ter­na­tional cui­sine from around the world can be en­joyed at all-day-din­ing out­let El­e­ments, com­plete with a gor­geous al fresco din­ing area. But per­haps the most pop­u­lar of all is Sun­time Cen­tury, the fine-din­ing Can­tonese restau­rant, with a pub­lic din­ing area as well as 10 pri­vate din­ing rooms for VIP en­ter­tain­ment.

Af­ter a long day of hard work, guests are wel­come to un­wind with a cock­tail on the top floor and en­joy the live band. The Red Pas­sion bar of­fers an un­par­al­leled 270-de­gree view over the glit­ter­ing sky­scrapers, the Bund and the Huangpu River, leav­ing guests in no doubt as to why Shanghai is known as the “Magic City”.

Other leisure pur­suits in­clude an in­door swim­ming pool with large floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows that al­low sun­light to come stream­ing in while giv­ing swim­mers a stun­ning vista to en­joy. Like­wise in the fit­ness cen­tre, guests will be able to work up a sweat while en­joy­ing views of the Ori­en­tal Pearl Tower. More in­tense re­lax­ation and re­ju­ve­na­tion can be found in the lux­ury spa, with a com­plete menu of spe­cialised treat­ments.
