InterContinental Shanghai Wonderland
Superb Designs Celebrate Natural Beauty


InterContinental Shanghai Wonderland is a bold work of architectural design, which has already been hailed as one of the top 10 modern architectural wonders of the world. It will become the world's first five-star hotel built directly within the space of a decommissioned quarry.

InterContinental Shanghai Wonderland is conveniently located in Sheshan, the southwest gateway of Shanghai. It is only 30 minutes from Hongqiao International Airport. Among the hotel's nearby attractions include Sheshan National Forest Park, Chenshan Botanical Garden, Tianma Country Club, Guangfulin Park, Shanghai Sculpture Park, and Shanghai Happy Valley. This great location invites ours to explore the extraordinary urban landscape in the area.

 

Bold Architecture Integrating Natural Wonders
InterContinental Shanghai Wonderland designed by CCD integrates natural wonders to provide a rare experience for guests. With a perfect combination of China's traditional artistic and exotic aesthetics, the hotel celebrates contemporary lifestyles with quiet luxury and artistic designs. In contrary to the traditional architectural concept of building towards the sky, InterContinental Shanghai Wonderland adopts the unconventional design of building into the 88 meters deep space below altitude producing a disruptive breakthrough in the concept of the living environment. It sets an example for the harmony between man and nature. It is like stepping into a hidden paradise, which hides endless beautiful sceneries and elegant artistic style.

InterContinental Shanghai Wonderland reveres nature, has been masterfully built directly into the side wall of a quarry decommissioned. It features 2 above ground storeys and 15 storeys that stretch 88 meters below altitude. There are 336 luxury rooms and suites all with spectacular views of the quarry. Each room enjoys its own unique style based on the quarry's “waterfall” and “rock wall” elements, creating a stunning visual impact with copious modern aesthetics. Guest room types include “turquoise water” bedrooms, “red industrial” twin rooms and underwater suites featuring an in-room aquarium. Stepping inside these rooms is to indulge in the beauty of nature.

The stunning underwater loft offers two awe-inspiring levels: the landing deck at water level houses the outdoor terrace and bedroom, whilst the underwater living room are encased within a turquoise aquarium where guests will be surrounded by schools of fish swim by. With our “In the Know” service culture, we are pleased to share our insights and knowledge of Shanghai to make every guest experience a memorable one.
