The Park Hyatt Shenzhen

Sitting atop a 48-story skyscraper in the heart of the Futian central business district in Shenzhen, the brand new hotel is designed to provide a luxurious oasis amidst the pulsating energy of this fast-growing city.

Within walking distance of Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Center and surrounded by corporate offices and luxury shopping, Park Hyatt Shenzhen is ideally located for business and leisure travelers alike. The hotel is located 1.8 miles (3 kilometers) from Futian Checkpoint, and has direct underground access to metro lines, the Futian High Speed Train station, Hong Kong SAR with all districts of Shenzhen accessible near the hotel.

Concept and Design

Designed by the New York-based architectural firm Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (KPF), the 48-story building, resembles a dynamic glass and steel butterfly with its wings spread against the Shenzhen city skyline.

The elegant and refined interiors of Park Hyatt Shenzhen are designed by Yabu Pushelberg to feel like a home away from home. The hotel’s design celebrates the Park Hyatt brand’s heritage and creates a haven of tranquility, offering a botanical oasis in the sky blending nature and culture. The moment guests step into the hotel’s Chinese-style garden, they will find unparalleled enrichment and a quietly confident stay.

Guestrooms

The hotel’s 195 spacious guestrooms and suites, are designed to create an Asian-inspired sanctuary where guests will feel as if they are ‘floating on a cloud.’ Located on floors 36 to 44, the corridors leading to each guestroom are lined in cloud-patterned carpeting with accommodations ranging from 516 square feet to 3,229 square feet (48 square meters to 299 square meters). Upon entering each guestroom, guests can find floor-to-ceiling windows framing the spectacular sky-high views. In soothing shades of grey, taupe and ochre, the rooms also incorporate subtle contemporary Chinese detailing, ranging from the artwork to the lantern-style pendant lighting to the minibar resembling a modern Chinese cabinet.

In the marble-lined bathroom, the Asian influence continues in the twin vanity stand inspired by traditional Chinese architecture. Bathrooms also feature a deep soaking tub, spa-inspired rain shower, and premium toiletries custom-created for Park Hyatt Shenzhen by cult New York perfumer Le Labo, renowned for its fresh, handmade fragrances.

Drinking and Dining 

Park Hyatt Shenzhen will launch a unique collection of bars and restaurants to showcase its outstanding cuisine accompanied by unrivaled views of the Shenzhen skyline. Flanking an entire side of Level 33, Living Room is a residential-style venue streaming natural light, stunning views and a sense of intimate comfort and timeless elegance, where guests can congregate for afternoon tea or evening drinks.

Also on Level 33 is Garden Pavilion, specializing in classic and authentic Cantonese cuisine as well as Sichuan and Jiangnan specialties. Comprising a series of pavilions immersed in greenery, the décor creates an extraordinary setting akin to outdoor dining. The botanical theme continues in the restaurant’s four private dining suites, each with its own lounge and powder room, where wallcoverings depict bucolic scenes of mountains, trees and wildlife.

Opening late August, The Glasshouse on Level 47 has a contemporary alfresco-dining feel with natural light flooding in from the glass ceiling and wraparound windows, and an abundance of outdoor-inspired whitewashed brick, decking and paving. It is a contemporary restaurant and bar offering a wide range of beverages and casually elegant European cuisine with a Chinese sensibility.

Located on Level 48, The Attic will also open in late August, serving as a penthouse bar that continues with a botanical theme and foliage above a large marble counter bar.

THOMAS SABO Autumn/Winter 2019 campaign

The magic of jewellery, the magic of being a woman – From 15 July, the new THOMAS SABO Autumn/Winter 2019 campaign will present multi-faceted new jewellery and watch innovations, showcased by global star Rita Ora. Known for her unique, creative and individual style mix, the singer will be the face of the THOMAS SABO world for the next two years and is the focus of the campaign. The lifestyle brands campaign imagery was shot by Cass Bird.

 

“Wearing jewellery is transforming – through its shine and sparkle. My THOMAS SABO campaign aims to empower women to experience this magical boost of jewellery and to inspire other women to create personal looks full of energy and liveliness”, says Rita Ora at the beginning of the cooperation.

 

Rita Ora’s self-confident statement and her passion for jewellery are reflected in the new THOMAS SABO designs. Jewellery stars run through the Collection as a constantly reinterpreted detail, like a magical design code. In the foreground are bright jewellery colours with mystical depth, cosmic jewellery interpretations of constellations, continuing through to the true statements of the Collection – iconic Wheel of Fortune designs, magical cats, the compass leading the way and the symbolic labyrinth of life. Each design is intended to remind you that the magical moments in life make your personality shine.

 

Rita Ora presents the DNA of the THOMAS SABO brand in a new way, with a focused, cool statement. Minimalist designs with the cool lustre of THOMAS SABOS Sterling silver highlight a sense of aesthetics with some designs also available with exquisite yellow gold plating.

 

The new Autumn/Winter Collection from THOMAS SABO includes rings, earrings, necklaces, bracelets and watches featuring the well-known, broad design variety for women and men and is perfectly designed for personal combinations: from filigree, playful lucky charms to bold looks, minimalist statements and deep symbolism. The Collection presented by Rita Ora can be discovered from 15 July 2019 in all THOMAS SABO shops worldwide, in shop-in-shops, in the THOMAS SABO online shop at www.thomassabo.com and in selected specialist retail outlets.

The Lost Stone Villas & Spa

The Lost Stone Villas & Spa officially joined the Unbound Collection by Hyatt in Tengchong, Yunnan Province of Southwest China, marking the second property under The Unbound Collection by Hyatt in Greater China. The resort, built using six types of natural stone used throughout the property’s paths, walls and roof of the buildings, received its namesake as it blends seamlessly into the nearby mountains, almost appearing lost in nature.

Nestled at the foot of Yunfeng Mountain, which means Cloud Peak, The Lost Stone is just over 15 miles (25 kilometers) from the border of Myanmar. Fifty free-standing garden villas are discreetly laid out across the ‘Ever Young’ valley, interspersed with luxurious flowering gardens and views of the Cloudy Peak Mountain. The area is known for its volcanic hot springs and is revered as a sacred pilgrimage place by Taoists across southeast Asia.

World-famous Japanese architect Kengo Kuma designed the all-villa resort as an ideal harmony of nature and contemporary architecture. The resort blends seamlessly into the folds of the mountain thanks to various types of natural local stone throughout the property, including white marble and lava stone. Renowned hotel interiors specialist LTW Studio from Singapore designed the interiors to reflect the rich cultures of the ethnic minorities that inhabit the region, including the Lisu, Nakhi, Jingpo, Miao, Wa and Bai tribes. Their vibrant costumes, jewelry and craft techniques – from rattan hats and baskets, to rustic hand-woven linens and the delicate cotton of their lanterns – inspire the interiors of the villas and public spaces. The result is a celebration of color and texture that evokes rich stories and an exotic ambience.

Guestrooms

Starting at 1,572 square feet (146 square meters), the villas feature a separate bedroom, marble bathroom, living and dining spaces, a kitchen, plus an in-villa spa treatment room. Each villa also has a private outdoor courtyard and lounging garden planted with colorful 100-year-old rhododendron flowers, plus a hot spring pool carved from a single block of granite where guests can enjoy the mountain’s high-grade spring water. Honoring Yunfeng Mountain’s Taoist culture, the all-villa resort has created Tao Spa, providing therapeutic hot spring and spa experiences designed to enhance the harmony between nature and human beings.

Dining and Drinking

Exquisite dining and socializing experiences highlighting organic local ingredients are served up at Cloud Clubhouse. This all-day restaurant overlooking the forested mountains is a contemporary setting offering a choice of Western or local breakfasts, including fresh flower rice noodles in a stone pot. Nourishing hotpots and other local favorites prepared with seasonal and wild ingredients are served during lunch and dinner. Guests can relax with refreshments, including on-site brewed pu’er tea made from the ancient tea plants and locally-roasted Baoshan Arabica coffee. Within the Cloud Clubhouse, Cloud Bar is an exclusive destination to unwind with premium wines, cocktails, beers and spirits.

The Lost Stone also manages two unique restaurants that are a short drive from the resort where guests can savor mountain cuisine. Inspired by the Lisu minority, Lisu Ethnic Restaurant is located in an ancient carved wooden home and serves tribal specialties including roast pork, banana-leaf grilled meats, pork ribs in bamboo alongside an open-air bonfire. Nearby, The Veggie Restaurant serves thoughtfully crafted vegetarian cuisine featuring rare and healthy ingredients such as wild mushrooms and edible herbs from the surrounding mountains.

Meetings & Events

Serving as the perfect backdrop for destination weddings, events and meetings. the resort offers two beautiful multi-function banquet halls of 3,767 square feet (350 square meters) and 2,690 square feet (250 square meters), hosting up to 200 people. Each event space is filled with natural light and mountain views, while also providing premium conference facilities ideal for trainings, seminars, or high-end banquets. A professional banquet team and event planners are on hand to curate each personalized occasion. Meanwhile, cultural and nature experiences, such as releasing floating lamps on the river, mountain hiking and stargazing, offer creative opportunities for team-building and memorable guest adventures in this nature-filled destination.
