Each of the 178 spacious rooms and suites enjoys spectacular parkland and city views and ranges in size from 56sqm to 76sqm, while the 16 exquisitely appointed suites range from 114 sqm to 400 sqm. The accommodation features luxurious marble bathrooms, walk-in closets, Diptyque toiletries, Samsung 55'' LED televisions, Dyson Supersonic hairdryers and Bose Bluetooth speakers.

The Mandarin Club, located on the 78th floor, provides a private experience for guests, with a spacious lounge, dining area and glorious views. The signature Spa offers a range of curated wellness treatments and a hi-tech gymnasium and 20m indoor swimming pool.

In keeping with the Group’s reputation for dining excellence, the eight restaurants and bars include a fine dining Cantonese restaurant helmed by Michelin-starred Chef Fei while other restaurants feature the cuisines of China, Spain, Japan and France, with the vintage-vibe rooftop MO Bar catering to the city’s sophisticates.

Event planners will be impressed by the myriad offerings, which includes The Cube, a free-standing event venue featuring the latest technologies, making it ideal for large gatherings, bespoke conferences, cocktail parties and weddings.

The official opening ceremony began with a traditional Chinese blessing followed by speeches, unveiling the hotel logo, ribbon cutting and a champagne toast. After a lively Lion Dance and Eye-Dotting ceremony, General Manager Mark S. Bradford addressed the invited guests.

We are delighted to bring Mandarin Oriental’s legendary hospitality to the exciting city of Shenzhen,” said General Manager Mark S. Bradford. “As well as fabulously luxurious and spacious rooms, we have eight distinctive restaurants and bars, making us a must-visit destination for the discerning diners of Shenzhen.”

This is my second China opening for Mandarin Oriental in the space of three years, and it has been an exciting and rewarding journey. My experienced team and I look forward to providing exceptional experiences for our guests.”

The formalities concluded with a speech from Mrs. Zhong Ge Hui, Chairman of Shum Yip Commercial, and a video-link with Mr. James Riley, Group Chief Executive of Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group.

Attendees then moved to the lobby for the unveiling of a digital art display introduced by artist Mu Lei, a pioneer of Chinese contemporary art. The stunning work is inspired by the forward-looking environment of oceanside Shenzhen and the cloud-touching height of the hotel. A virtual waterfall, 4m high, symbolises the energy of the city, with the stones and waves hand-painted by Mu Lei using digital tools as brushes.
