Luxury Boutique Hotels in Shanghai

May 8, 2007 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Jia Hong Kong The trend for cutting-edge boutique hotels is catching on in major metropolises across Asia. As recently featured by Newsweek International, these cool hotels are "popping up in Asia's more cosmopolitan cities faster than construction cranes." In recent years Hong Kong and Singapore have paved the way with a slew of intimate design hotels, but now Shanghai is also getting its share of hip boutiques. Opening within months of each other, these new luxury hotels include the 30-room Mansion Hotel, a renovated French villa-style manor which "evokes the swinging Shanghai of the 1920s", and M Suites, which has a "sleeker, more contemporary feel." But perhaps the most exciting news of all: the sexy, Philippe Starck-designed Jia Hotel in Hong Kong is branching out to two new locations: Krabi, Thailand and Shanghai.
