The hotel Sukhothai Shanghai is now open, marking a new chapter of the prestigious hotel group as their first foray into the Mainland China’s hospitality scene.
Located in the coveted Jing’an district, Sukhothai Shanghai is a contemporary lifestyle hotel under The Sukhothai Hotels & Resorts of HKR International, bringing together sophisticated design, thoughtfully curated experiences and attentive hospitality to surprise and inspire.
It comprises 170 tastefully-designed guest rooms and 31 residence-style suites from 44 to 172 square-metres, among the largest in the city.
Vibrant and eclectic, the hotel’s five inspiring dining venues are poised to become the city’s dining destinations. Alongside Michelin-starred master chef Theodor Falser, chef de cuisine Stefano Sanna takes the helm of the urban Italian restaurant La Scala, serving fresh-to-order contemporary Italian cuisine.
The nature-inspired menu prizes local and sustainable sourcing, low waste, and zero frozen and processed ingredients, paired with a fine selection of Italian boutique wines.
All-day-dining restaurant URBAN Cafe indulges guests with authentic Southeast Asian cuisines under the leadership of executive chef Marcus Ng, while URBAN Lounge offers a sophisticated collection of over 100 premium gins and tonics and a special trolley with infused fresh herbs to be served with premium teas, all complemented by live jazz in the evening. A bistro by day and a lively bar by night, The ZUK Bar is the best location to enjoy simple modern Nordic cuisine, and artisanal cocktails with intriguing elixirs house-made with a laboratory-type rotary evaporator (rotovap) by our master mixologist Vincenzo Pagliara. Modern café Beans & Grapes serves a healthy selection of quality light fare and beverages during the day, and Asian-inspired tapas paired with wine by the glass from sundown.
The second floor is home to the Grand Shanghai Ballroom, along with six multi-purpose function rooms, spanning a spacious 450 square metres. Crafted for exquisite social and corporate events, conferences and exhibitions, the meeting facilities are equipped with high-definition widescreen displays, full-range quality acoustics and lighting effects, all efficiently operated from an intelligent iPad master control. The Pantry is a new hospitality concept offering event delegates a communal space to relax and socialise during refreshment breaks.
The health and wellness facilities include a 198-square-metre Fitness Studio complete with state-of-the-art equipment and a separate studio for yoga, Pilates and group exercise. Guests can also take advantage of the 25-metre heated indoor pool, sauna and steam room. The Retreat offers a range of Southeast Asian spa therapies and signature wellness programmes.
A member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, The Sukhothai Shanghai forms an integral part of the HKRI Taikoo Hui mixed-use complex, which also includes Grade-A office towers and a premium lifestyle shopping mall, all located in the retail and tourist hotspot of West Nanjing Road and Shimen Yi Road.
