Andaz Shenzhen Bay has just annouced their soft opening. The hotel is a significant addition to Hyatt’s growing portfolio in Shenzhen, joining Park Hyatt Shenzhen, Grand Hyatt Shenzhen, Hyatt Regency Shenzhen Yantian, Hyatt Regency Shenzhen Airport, Hyatt Place Shenzhen Dongmen, Hyatt Place Shenzhen Airport and Hyatt House Shenzhen Airport.
Located in the southwestern tip of the metropolis, Shenzhen Bay is a rapidly growing commercial district, home to offices for 80 Fortune 500 companies. Andaz Shenzhen Bay is part of a 212-acre (860,000-square-meter) mixed-use development that includes the striking bullet-shaped landmark of the China Resources Headquarters, the high-end Shenzhen Bay MixC Mall, Shenzhen Bay Sports Center and China Resources Financial Building. Overlooking breathtaking Shenzhen Bay, the hotel is a 30-minute drive from Shenzhen Bao’an International Airport and a short walk to Houhai Metro station.
Created by acclaimed New York designer Tony Chi, Andaz Shenzhen Bay has been concepted for like-minded people to meet and stimulate their senses with design elements inspired the distinct spirit of the locale. Plantation shutters, tactile leather, hand-painted chinoiserie wallpaper, gold-leaf paneling, graphically tiled marble and glossy lacquered finishes unite to create a series of distinctive, luxurious spaces with the occasional surprising twist.
As guests approach Andaz Shenzhen Bay, they are greeted by tall hedges, sculpted and manicured into unexpected organic forms, tucking away a covered entryway with duck-egg blue plantation shutters, Crittall-style glazing, glossy plaster columns and manicured boxwood topiary. Guests are greeted by an Andaz Host and ushered through an entry lined in eye-catching murals hand-painted in gold dust.
Andaz Shenzhen Bay offers 220 spacious guestrooms overlooking the breathtaking Shenzhen Bay, the Shenzhen Sports Center or the China Resources Headquarters. Each room is between 538 to 2,690-square-feet (50 to 250 square meters) and decorated with a soothing mix of duck-egg blue plantation shutters and Calacatta Luccicoso-style marble. Rooms also feature modern comforts including 65-inch IPTVs, Dyson hairdryers and smart mirrors with internet access.
