InterContinental Shanghai Wonderland - Hotel In A Water-Filled Quarry With Underwater RoomsInterContinental Shanghai  
Wonderland

Woah, Intercontinental has gone all out on this one! Looking at visuals of InterContinental Shanghai Wonderland, you might be forgiven for thinking that these are stills from a futuristic blockbuster movie and not actual photos! But this place is real, and you can book a stay in the resort of the future.

The five-star hotel was built in an abandoned quarry about 30 kilometers from Shanghai. Designed by Atkins, the same firm that gave us the Burj Al Arab Hotel in Dubai, InterContinental Shanghai Wonderland took ten years to build because of the engineering challenges of the project. Out of its 19 stories, 17 are below ground level, of which two are underwater.

The hotel’s out-of-this-world look is owed to the unique design that seamlessly blends in with the natural elements. The construction seems to grow straight out of the rocky cliffs, and the central element is a glass waterfall that flows over the roof like a river and comes crushing down the façade. This integration with the landscape is not just a gimmick – the hotel has an extensive sustainability program.

The design excellence doesn’t end at the exteriors. The rooms at Shimao are as luxurious as you’d expect from a 5-star hotel, and they’re certainly unique. Alongside marble, silk linen, and mirrors, you’ll find interior elements inspired by the history of the quarry, such as valves repurposed as lamps or brass pipes for hanging your towels. So if you like your novelty experiences to come with maximum comfort, you’ll feel at home here.
