In a stunning glass-and-steel tower that manages to both bequeath king-of-the-world status and blend well with the local culture, Park Hyatt Shenzhen offers a new cozy abode to make yourself at home for a successful business trip that is certain to become leisure.

SEE+DO 

The Futian district is a great place for a culture kick. Shenzhen Museum focuses on Cantonese and Hakka culture; the Shenzhen Contemporary Art and Urban Planning Museum is so neat aesthetically that it’s a sight in its own right; also check out the Shenzhen Science Musuem and the masterworks at Artron Art Centre. The area is also brimming with leafy parks and gardens, which look beautiful from above on the Freesky Observation Deck atop Ping An Finance Centre Tower.

SHOP

Make a beeline for Huaqiangbei Commercial Street, the it destination for buying the latest electronics and any gadget your heart might desire. It’s also got fashion, though to really fill up your wardrobe you might prefer Coco Park, where after browsing 200 stores you can reward yourself with drinks at its bustling bar street.

EAT+DRINK

No one does intimately residential like Park Hyatt, and Living Room will make you feel right at home. Settle into the comfortable, light-filled room for tea, drinks or whatever meal fits your fancy. If it’s Chinese you’re after, Garden Pavilion takes you on a delicious tour of Cantonese, Sichuan and Jiangnan cuisine in an astonishing botanical setting that makes you feel like you’re outdoors. Likewise the stunning, contemporary The Glasshouse—and after you’ve sampled their European fare, head for a nightcap upstairs at tip-top speakeasy The Attic.

STAY 

Fluttering up high in one of the world’s most dynamic cities, the glass-and-steel butterfly that is Park Hyatt Shenzhen has risen with grace. Step into your room and be wowed by the great views out the vast windows. But there’s also plenty to admire in the interiors from award-winning designers Yabu Pushelberg: modern Chinese accents provide elegant grounding in these cocoons that start at a generous 48 square metres and are stocked with bespoke toiletries from Le Labo. If you still need to stoke your sense of calm, do some laps in the indoor pool, or book an innovative wellness treatment at The Spa.
