The PuLi Hotel & Spa Review
An oasis of calm in the center of bustling Shanghai, the PuLi Hotel & Spa is billed as an urban resort with an emphasis on soothing decor and relaxing amenities. Inside a cutting-edge glass-and-steel structure just off the main Nanjing Road, the hotel greets guests in a mellow lobby with low-slung seating, modern porcelain pieces, and a wall of windows overlooking adjacent Jing'An Park. The ground floor also houses a cozy double-height library replete with books and fireplace, an outdoor garden terrace, and the 105-foot Long Bar, a popular place to gather for drinks and afternoon tea. The 209 mod, spa-like guest rooms come with perks like automated blackout curtains, rain-forest showers, free Wi-Fi, complimentary mini-bars stocked with a selection of potato chips and local beer, and loaner cell phones for use during your stay. The main restaurant serves a refined East-meets-West menu all day and a decadent Sunday brunch—a big hit with expats—that overflows with delicacies. The Anantara Spa further transports with a menu of tea-based face and body treatments and a stunning indoor pool.
