Why we choose The Ritz-Carlton Shanghai, Pudong

Like the best real estate, location is what makes this hotel-close to tons of shopping and entertainment

  • Condé Nast Traveler readers named it the #1 Hotel in the World a year after opening
  • The hotel includes a mall filled with luxury brands
  • Enjoy sweeping views of the city including the Bund and the Oriental Pearl Tower

There’s a wonderful afternoon tea here, but that’s just about the only thing that smacks of a traditional hotel. Sleek lines, a high-rise location and spanking-new everything neatly sums up the Ritz-oh, and the drool-worthy views don’t hurt, either.

What you need to know about the hotel

Its array of restaurants and 24-hour amenities cater to international travelers with diverse needs

  • Shanghai’s most happening rooftop bar, Flair is a lifestyle lounge where celebs and glitterati come to see and be seen
  • The oversized, corner Ritz-Carlton Suite boasts 800-thread count Frette linens, a martini bar and fully-stocked pantry with service entrance
  • A Ritz-Carlton Club Level room scores you a dedicated staff to make sightseeing, transportation and check-in/check-out arrangements

Everything is shiny and modern at the Ritz-Carlton Shangai, Pudong, one of the newest and most luxurious hotels in the area. The high-rise tempts you with five restaurants and lounges that attract a who’s who crowd for the excellent drinks, cuisine ranging from Italian to a raw bar and, of course, the views. Throw in a large spa and art deco rooms with luxe touches like walk-in closets and Bose systems, and you’ve got a hotel where you’ll be more than comfortable.

Where is it and what's nearby

The hotel’s tower location translates into uninterrupted views of The Bund, the riverside and the city skyline

  • At the indoor Lu Jia Bang Lu Fabric Market, your clothing will be custom-made and ready within three days
  • The nearly 2,000-year-old Long Hua Pagoda also includes a temple with Buddhist scriptures, gold seals and Buddhist statues
  • The Shanghai Museum is among the largest in China and houses 12,300 pieces of art and cultural relics

Just two decades ago, the Pudong area of Shanghai was agricultural; now, it’s the commercial and financial epicenter of the city. Just across the Huangpu River from downtown Shanghai, Ritz-Carlton Pudong has a prime location overlooking The Bund and is attached to the IFC commercial and financial center—with a notable high-end mall that delights guests.

The hotel itself occupies the top 18 levels of an ultra-modern 58-story tower, seeming to exemplify the area’s transformation into an international hot spot. Many of Shanghai’s cultural landmarks, museums and shopping destinations are within a few miles of the hotel, making it easy for you check off everything on your to-do list.

How to enjoy Shanghai

There’s a sense of excitement running through the heart of Shanghai that is so palpable you could almost hold it. Whether born from the pace of change, or the shiver-point of ancient and modern colliding, it tastes delicious

  • Culinary secrets from the royal kitchens are on the menu at Shanghai’s most exclusive restaurant, Family Li
  • Whether you regard it as kitsch or stylish, Shanghai’s iconic pink rocket, Pearl Tower, has amazing viewing platforms
  • The first public museum of contemporary art in mainland China, the Power Station of Art, can be found in the former Nanshi Power Plant

Ask your concierge to book an evening at the exclusive M1NT for breathtaking floor to ceiling city views and the chance to dance the night away with an ominously large shark tank. A real one, not a euphemism. For a truly exceptional wine experience, speak to the sommelier at the House of Roosevelt. From the Sky Bar and Restaurant to the Wine Cellar, the entire building and everything in it is so remarkable, you’ll be forever grateful for our recommendation.

For a leisurely stroll away from the bustle of the city, find your way to Yuyuan Garden. The largest of Shanghai’s ancient gardens, it features picture-perfect pagodas from both the Ming and Qing dynasties, hidden courtyards and carp-filled streams. One of Shanghai’s favourite pastimes is shopping. For stylish big-ticket items explore the stores of the Bund or the Shaanxi Road. For a flattering fusion of East meets West, discover the emporia of Shanghai Tang.
