Jumeirah Opens First China Property

Jumeirah Group has finally made its way into China. Most known for its over-the-top Dubai hotels, the hotel operator's Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel Shanghai features 401 Chinese-style guest rooms, including 62 suites and residences, four restaurants and lounges, a 24-hour fitness center and indoor swimming pool. The interior of the hotel was designed by KCA International, whose portfolio includes the Burj Al Arab in Dubai, which is also run by Jumeirah.

The hotel is part of the Himalayas Centre, a new arts and cultural hub that includes the 1,100-seat DaGuan Theatre, Himalayas Art Museum, a luxury brand mall and outdoor event venues, such as the Infinity Garden and Wuji Plaza. The Centre was designed by architect Arata Isozaki, who also created the 1992 Barcelona Olympic Stadium and Los Angeles MoMA.

In addition to Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel Shanghai, Jumeirah has another five hotel projects under development in China: Jumeirah Hangzhou, Jumeirah Guangzhou, Jumeirah Qing Shui Bay Resort Sanya, Jumeirah Macau and Jumeirah Thousand Islands Lake Resort in Qiandaohu.
