A classy blend of fun and flair, the Spanish-themed InterContinental Shenzhen has everything from bellmen dressed in toreador costumes to a massive Pirates of the Caribbean–style ship serving as a bar and restaurant. Rooms and suites mix the latest high-tech amenities like LCD TVs and Bose surround sound with plush furnishings. Some are simply decorated, while others are more grand, with sleek leather chairs, wood paneling, and glittering chandeliers. For some relaxation,
check out the palm-shaded water park and its imitation beach.
