HOT DEALS AND NEW HOTELS
The Waterhouse at South Bund, located on the banks of the Shanghai’s Huangpu River, inexorably raises the city’s boutique hotel stakes, leaving its competitors trailing hopelessly behind. Its 19 guestrooms, destination restaurant, rooftop bar and enormous all-purpose event space produce an exhilarating atmosphere and breathe new life into the Shanghai market.
Neri & Hu Design and Research Office, one of China’s leading architectural voices, entirely transformed the 1930’s building but maintained the original façade. Lyndon Neri explains the design ethos for The Waterhouse: “This is a hotel that puts the emphasis on the traveller in search of some meaning, and not just the luxury component of living.” A conceptual blending of the antique and the contemporary, The Waterhouse is a complex dissociation and amalgamation of interior and exterior as well as public and private spaces, leading to a unique and entirely new experience for guests and locals alike.
With magnificent views of the Pudong skyline, an area where the city’s quaint low-rise architectural heritage is still largely in tact, The Waterhouse at South Bund prides itself on integrating into the traditional local environment while challenging its boundaries and distinguishing itself absolutely in order to provide each guest with an unforgettable experience.

LOCATION OF THE WATERHOUSE AT SOUTH BUND
Ideally located approximately a 30 minutes drive away from the 2010 World Expo and adjacent to Shanghai’s latest cultural hotspot The Cool Docks, The Waterhouse is situated east of the city’s old town, which is better known as Shiliupu – the focal point for shipping and trading activities in Shanghai in the 1800s.
