Located in the cultural preservation zone of Shanghai’s upmarket Xuhui District, Capella Shanghai offers a unique location, nestled away from the hustle and bustle of the city. This is a soulful heritage retreat that is still close enough to still experience all the urban action.
The villas - 55 in total - are serene and stylish with a muted colour palette, custom-designed furniture and a spacious marble bathroom. Step outside to enjoy the use of a courtyard and a tranquil rooftop terrace - perfect for sunny afternoons spent sipping beverages from the complimentary mini-bar while savouring some peace and quiet after days spent exploring Shanghai's vibrant centre.
Expect to be well fed during your stay here, beginning your days with a breakfast of buttery pastries and local dim dum at la Boulangerie, and ending them with mouth-wateringly good French fare at the Michelin-starred Le Comptoir de Pierre Gagnaire restaurant. Afterwards, take a seat at the le Bar to sip your way through an impressive wine list.
After experiencing the urban delights of fast-paced Shanghai, return to the hotel for pampering treatments at the award-winning Auriga Spa, complete with a sauna and steam room, as well as a fantastic fitness centre.
With its central location and serene outdoor spaces, Capella Shanghai is the perfect hideaway from the urban action.
