Upon arriving at Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel, you’ll immediately notice its intriguing, futuristic look marked by perpendicular patterns covering the façade. A feng shui master designed the entire structure, so while the surface is angular the inside is a round layer of rich colors and dark woods.
The lower lobby welcomes visitors to enjoy afternoon tea or a snack at the Arte Café & Lounge, but the Four-Star hotel is also prepared to meet your business needs — it’s located just across the street from the Shanghai International Exhibition Center. If you’d like to mix business and pleasure but are short on time, you’ll enjoy the hotel’s 22,000-square-foot garden and attached mall, which includes seven restaurants, a seven-room movie theater that seats more than 1,000 and an art gallery showing originals from Shanghai’s best contemporary artists. It’s a particularly great perk for those who don’t have time between meetings to leave the enormous complex.
