Two visionary hotel concepts, Zendai Hotel Yin, a luxury, boutique-style ‘city retreat’ and Zendai Art Hotel, a 5-star business hotel, will open in the ‘Himalayas Centre’ which is due to open in Pudong in spring 2010, in time for the Shanghai World Expo.
The Zendai Group has invested over RMB 2.4 billion in the Himalayas Centre which is located opposite to Shanghai’s New International Expo Centre and just 15 minutes from the city’s main financial district in Pudong. Metro line no. 7 is accessed directly from the basement of the Himalayas Centre and the high speed Maglev train, for 7-minute transfers and from Pudong airport, is just 10 minutes away.
Designed by one of the world’s leading architects, Arata Isozaki who is renowned for his work on the Barcelona Olympics Stadium and the Los Angeles Museum of Modern Art, the Himalayas Centre is being hailed by developers, the Zendai Group, as an ‘archisculptural icon for 21st century China’.
The Himalayas Centre will incorporate the Daguan Theatre with multi-functional auditorium seating 1,600, the Himalayas Mall and Himalayas Creative Complex / Museum Zone, as well as the two luxury hotels.
The boutique-style Zendai Hotel Yin will occupy the top four floors of the dedicated hotel tower.
There will be 78 guestrooms, ranging in size from the 376 square meters presidential suite to 60 square meters luxury suites, which are accessed via elevators exclusively for use by boutique hotel guests.
