Wanda Reign on the Bund
Shanghai, China's largest city, is home to an array of luxury hotels. But one that stands out as a shining beacon of decadence, art, and culture is Wanda Reign on the Bund. This luxurious retreat takes pride in showcasing the finest aspects of Shanghainese design, cuisine, and heritage.
Strategically located on the city’s famous riverside, this hotel offers stunning views of Shanghai's skyline and the convenience of having the bustling city within reach.
The opulence of Wanda Reign is evident from its 32-foot-high lobby adorned with jade and marble-inlaid tiles, to the awe-inspiring balcony views from the 21st floor.
This riverside establishment is the third installment in the exclusive Reign line from the Wanda Hotels & Resorts group, a part of the Dalian Wanda empire owned by one of China's wealthiest individuals, Wang Jianlin. This extravagant location, designed by British architectural firm Foster and Partners, provides a panoramic view of the historic Bund, catering to the tastes of Shanghai’s trendy and stylish crowd.
The hotel enjoys a prime location, sandwiched between the futuristic Pudong skyline on one side and the traditional shikumen-style structures of the Old City on the other. In addition, it is close to some of the city's most sought-after bars, clubs, and restaurants and is within walking distance from the City of God temple and the popular Yu Gardens.
What sets this hotel apart is its unapologetic lavishness. The property is dotted with art deco features, complemented by a rich palette of crystal, marble, velvet, silk, and ten different types of jade. Stained-glass windows and traditional Suzhou embroidery add to the hotel's charm.
A highlight of your stay should be the classic Shanghai afternoon tea served in a vintage set at the top-floor restaurant, RuiKu, offering spectacular views. The hotel also proudly displays 33 specially commissioned artworks from contemporary Chinese artists, including an impressive wall-sized abstract painting of Shanghai by Shi Qi in the lobby.
The rooms are no less luxurious. Some come equipped with a massage chair, perfect for relaxing and enjoying the breathtaking views from the floor-to-ceiling windows.
The rooms, all 193 of them (including 14 suites), are meticulously designed and controlled by state-of-the-art iPads. They adjust temperature, lighting, room service, and other requests. Instead of a traditional spy hole, a digital mini screen peephole camera linked to your TV ensures your privacy.
As the mercury rises in Shanghai during the summer, you can look forward to fun pop-ups like ice cream and barbecues at the ground-floor Café Reign restaurant. The hotel's Japanese restaurant has become a popular proposal spot, with one table offering a particularly stunning view of the skyscrapers and the nightly light show.
For those who enjoy singing, the hotel boasts a posh karaoke room complete with massive speakers, television screens, leather sofas, and marble tables. The pinnacle of luxury, however, is the landmark Chairman’s Suite, a grand 947-square-foot accommodation featuring a living room, dining area, bar, study, pantry, Jacuzzi, sauna, and even a harp.
Among the five restaurants at Wanda Reign on the Bund, the River Drunk Huaiyang stands out. Its six private dining rooms serve Shanghai-inspired seafood dishes presented on unique tableware. Led by Tokyo native chef Kikuchi Yoshiyuki, He restaurant serves custom-made sushi amid smart light displays and imported Japanese décor.
The RuiKu Restaurant and Champagne Lounge is another must-visit, especially for its spacious terrace and captivating views. By night, it turns into a lively bar with cocktails and a live DJ. The hotel’s Shanghai breakfast is a feast for the senses, offering local flavors from congee and noodles to street-food-inspired delicacies.
In conclusion, Wanda Reign on the Bund is more than just a hotel; it's an experience. It's a place where luxury meets culture, where every corner tells a story, and where every stay becomes a memory.
