Southern China sees opening of the Grand Hyatt Shenzhen

Hyatt Hotels & Resorts has opened the Grand Hyatt Shenzhen, China. Part of the city's City Crossing complex, it sits alongside MixC - Shenzhen's largest shopping mall - plus an Olympic-sized skating rink and Park Lane Manor, said to be the most exclusive residential property in Shenzhen.

The hotel occupies a 38-storey crested building, whose top seven glass-encased floors create an illuminated 'lantern' at nightfall, offering panoramic views of Shenzhen, the CRC Building, the 384m (1,260ft) Diwang Building and the mountains of northern Hong Kong. On the 38th floor, The Penthouse is a 109-seat venue comprising a living area with a DJ booth, a kitchen featuring a teppan hot plate, a balcony, a terrace and an illuminated bar. Also available is a glass-walled, temperature-controlled cellar featuring a large wine and single malt selection, which can be booked as a private room. Directly below on the 37th floor, Belle-Vue is a European restaurant offering Western cuisine prepared on 10 tableside cooking stations. Guests can opt to dine in the Library, the Oval Room or in one of two private rooms.

China Lodge, on floors 35 and 36, consists of 14 premium private dining suites, which cater to parties between eight and 22 guests, while on the 33rd floor, adjacent to the Sky Lobby, The Lounge is the hotel's main gathering space and will offer refreshments, light snacks and evening cocktails throughout the day. On the floor below, The Show Kitchen offers four distinctive open kitchens - Asian, Japanese, Western and Seafood - allowing guests to dine among live culinary action and creating an interactive restaurant experience. It seats 226 and includes a 10-seat private room.

1881, located on the ground floor is a contemporary 169-seat venue with four private dining rooms. Equipped with wood-fired duck ovens, it offers a 'dining in the kitchen' atmosphere and specialises in Northern Chinese cuisine. Elsewhere, La Terrazza is a 158-seat trattoria serving made-to-order pizza as well as handmade pasta and traditional Italian antipasti, while Sugar Box is a patisserie offering homemade chocolates, cakes, pastries and light meals.

Event space at the Grand Hyatt Shenzhen spans 2,769sq m (29,805 sq ft) over three floors and offers a variety of venue options capable of catering for between eight and 1,410 guests. The 1,000sq m (10,764 sq ft) pillar-less Grand Ballroom on the 2nd floor features a nine-metre high ceiling, and can be divided into three soundproof sections, each with its own sound and lighting control rooms. For organisers of more intimate events, The Mansion on the ground and 1st floors is a split-level venue covering 1,000sq m (10,764 sq ft) and designed to resemble a stately home. Events can also be held in any of the six private rooms or in the loft kitchen.

A 3rd floor fitness centre is complemented by a 25m heated outdoor pool, alongside a sun deck and poolside bar. Also available are locker rooms featuring hydrotherapy areas with whirlpools and steam rooms. Also on the 3rd floor is Shui Xiang, a 3,132sq m (33,713sq ft) Hyatt Pure spa, created in traditional open-air hutong style, with 13 individual spa 'houses' circling a central water feature. The majority of the houses feature private outdoor terraces. Each spa suite contains a private lounge area, bathroom, shower room and therapist's pantry.

Nine of the suites feature private steam rooms with a heated treatment bed and four have outdoor bathtubs. There is also a foot reflexology area with three private rooms. The hotel offers 491 guest rooms - including 53 suites and 48 long-stay serviced apartments - ranging in size from 46 to 328sq m (495 to 3,531sq ft). All feature floor-to-ceiling picture windows and a spa-style marble bathroom, the latter housing an over-sized rain-shower and separate bathtub. The main room is equipped with automatic time-controlled curtains, a self-contained workstation with wireless, high-speed Internet access, a multi-channel 40in LED television and DVD player, an iPod docking station, and dual phone-lines with voicemail.

The hotel's Grand Club rooms on floors 22 to 31 provide more exclusive accommodation. These allow access to the Grand Club Lounge on the 25th floor, with Grand Club guests being offered complimentary continental breakfast, all-day refreshments, evening canapés, and cocktails, as well as one-hour complimentary use of a private boardroom.
