Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

Shanghai and eastern China’s subtropical climate brings with it four distinct seasons. The weather is generally mild and temperate, with a great deal of rainfall even in the drier months of the year. The frequent monsoon showers and scorching temperatures of June, July and August can make it uncomfortably humid, with the mercury regularly rising over 35°C. Winter is overcast and chilly, although snow seldom falls in this eastern region of China. Spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) are the best times to visit Shanghai and eastern China, with pleasant temperatures and fewer tourists.

A 24-hour full butler service, wake up call healing tea and Healing Workshop are just some of the services which can be provided during your stay.

Dining options are equally inspiring: Yuan Chinese Restaurant specializes in molecular cuisine in the Cantonese, Shanghainese and Sichuan culinary traditions; Mystique Western Restaurant puts innovative twist on classic Western favourites with high-quality imported ingredients such as Girardeau oysters from France, cured hams from Italy and top-grade beef from Australia; and Takeyoshi Japanese Restaurant features the finest Japanese food and outstanding sake on a Zen setting.

The hotel hosts daily healing workshop schedule which includes sun salutation, Tai Chi, Singing Bowl performance, sound therapy, nidra yoga designed for sleep enhancement, Ayurvedic tea tasting, pranamaya and meditation.
