Hyatt has announced plans to develop a 188-room Alila hotel in the Jing'an District of Shanghai. Alila Shanghai is expected to debut in 2021 and will be the first Alila branded urban hotel in China, offering a relaxing and nature-infused luxury retreat in the heart of the bustling metropolis.

Designed as an "urban utopia", Alila Shanghai will offer guests an elevated retreat experience. Featuring natural materials, earth tones and charming city views, the hotel's spacious studios and suites will evoke calm and relaxation. In contrast, a landscaped garden in the fourth-floor lobby inspired by Shanghai’s classical gardens, and facilities that embrace nature but live in harmony amid contemporary style, will provide surprise and stimulation for the senses. The hotel 's facilities will include a rooftop Chinese restaurant, an organic restaurant, Tea Bar and a rooftop bar overlooking the Old Shanghai Zhang Garden. Other hotel facilities include a spa, an indoor pool, gym, meeting space and a private garden which will be well suited for events and functions. Alila Shanghai will be located in a mixed-use development that will also feature premium offices and retail space.

Shanghai’s dynamic, fast-growing Jing’an District is one of the most coveted business and residential addresses and home to a vibrant fashion, creative, media, arts and culture community, making it an ideal setting for the Alila brand’s offerings of luxury hospitality and lifestyle experiences. The hotel’s central location is adjacent to Nanjing West Road, one of Shanghai’s most established high-end shopping thoroughfares, offering premium retail, dining and lifestyle destinations.
