The 193-room/36-suite PuLi Hotel & Spa in Shanghai is giving nod to the spring season with a number of packages that offer groups a taste of handcrafted luxury. The boutique hotel, positioned in Shanghai’s historic JingAn district, has reopened its plush 1,400-sf Garden Terrace for afternoon tea, artisan cocktails and live music. The terrace is surrounded by the green ambiance of Jing An Park, serving as one of four tucked-away meeting spaces offered at the hotel. The third-floor East-meets-West meeting room offers up to 70 attendees sweeping views of the park and Shanghai’s dynamic city skyline. Twenty-three floors above, a 150-pax multifunctional meeting/event space continues this theme.
“Through the years, we have found that luxury has transformed to become a more personal thought-out experience,” says the hotel’s General Manager, Jan Tibaldi. “Luxury is constantly evolving to meet the needs of our loyal clientele who are met with a unique handcrafted experience that exudes luxury from start to finish.”
Expect a refreshed menu at the resolutely epicurean Jing’An restaurant and private dining for 14 pax. The robust menu focuses on locally sourced, seasonal pairings such as gnocchi with gorgonzola, fennel and candied walnuts.
On Sundays, groups can indulge in a free-flowing Champagne brunch where a fabulous spread of fresh seafood, charcuterie, roasted meats, cheeses, freshly baked breads and pastries are paired with Moët et Chandon Brut and Moët et Chandon Rose.
Overall, close to 12,800 sf of meeting/event space is ripe for the picking. The elegant Long Bar—said to be the longest bar in Shanghai—offers groups a non-traditional venue where they can explore some of the city’s best champagne and wine selections by the glass. The design of the room and lovely park views facilitate creative brainstorming.
