Shanghaiâ€™s only all-villa urban resort opened in September 2017 in the cultural preservation and residential district of Xuhui. The development, located in one of the last-remaining clusters of shikumen architecture dating back to the 1930, has been sensitively restored and transformed.
RoomsÂ Each of the 55 four-storey units, with a small rooftop, was originally built to house many families sharing common facilities.
Now, each unit accommodates one or two people in a one-bedroom villa, and up to six in a three-bedroom villa. The elegant interiors feature Chinese and French elements and all the comforts of a modern luxurious home. Each level offers separate living, entertainment, relaxation and sleeping areas; and minibar soft drinks and snacks are complimentary.
MICE facilitiesÂ There is approximately 1,300m2 of meeting space, including the signature le Comptoir de Pierre Gagnaire restaurant which can accommodate 70 people for an exclusive sit-down dinner, or about 100 people for a cocktail event.
The boardroom on the ground floor of the reception building seats 16 people, while the 120m2 space upstairs is being renovated to accommodate 50 people classroom-style.
The hotelâ€™s outdoor courtyard has been used for a fashion industry media event, where a tent had been constructed for a product launch. Its sheltered Secret Garden is suitable for cocktails for up to 80 people, while the Capella Library can accommodate 40 people for a similar event.
Other facilitiesÂ The fitness and recreation area houses a 24-hour gym with state-of-the-art equipment, five single and two double treatment rooms at award-winning Auriga Spa, which features a flotation tank, vitality pool and salt-wall lounge.
RoomsÂ 55 one-, two- and three-bedroom villas
