InterContinental Shanghai Wonderland to Open in Late 2018

InterContinental Hotels Group and China-based developer Shimao Group are on track to open the InterContinental Shanghai Wonderland in China in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Design junkies will get a kick out of this: InterContinental Shanghai Wonderland is expected to open its doors in the fourth quarter of 2018. Developed by Shimao Group and managed by InterContinental Hotels Group, the luxury hotel—mostly below ground—will welcome guests to a unique landscape in a deep pit of a former quarry in southwestern Shanghai.

The new hotel is located at Sheshan Mountain Range and showcases exotic flora and fauna. It is located approximately 18 miles from Hongqiao Airport and close to attractions like Sheshan National Park and Chenshan Botanic Gardens. 

The 18-story hotel has two floors above ground, and 16 below ground—including two floors that are underwater. With a construction area of more than 656,000 square feet, the hotel offers exclusive Club InterContinental experiences, several dining options and 336 rooms and suites that all include balconies where guests can enjoy a view of waterfalls from the surrounding cliffs. It also has four meeting rooms and grand ballrooms equipped with modern technology.
