A new era of laidback luxury adorns each of the 145 guestrooms and this is punctuated in the warm and elegant bathrooms. Featuring floor to ceiling windows with views across Shanghai and the Bund from Kohler’s Evok bathtub, these bathrooms are exceptional masterclasses in understated elegance.

The freestanding Evok bath has been ergonomically designed to support the natural curves and angles of the body to make bathing comfortable and luxurious. The geometric lines and pared back design of Evok create a pared back look with these ergonomic elements masked by clever crafting to create clean, simple lines.

The design and engineering of the Evok bath makes it perfect for hotel use. Made from pure acrylic and aluminium hydroxide which prevents yellowing, it’s not just the style of this tub that will last the test of time.

In addition, the Veil wall hung toilet was chosen for its striking yet sleek seamlessness. Its rimless design means it’s even easier to clean and more hygienic than other products. In classic white, crafted from vitreous china, it’s a durable yet stylish item.

The luxurious, carrara marble tiling, matte black shower screen edging and smooth lines of the taps and shower fittings, nod to one half of the hotel’s art deco history, completing the overall look.
