On August 8, two years ago, China's first JW Marriott Marquis Hotel landed in Shanghai, hosting a luxurious "Marquis" trip by the Huangpu River in Pudong, creating a modern and extraordinary lifestyle. Today, the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel in Luneng, Shanghai has celebrated its second birthday. The hotel celebrates with guests and sets off a theme celebration of “unafraid of the new".
Under the leadership of Ms. Pan Xiaoying, the general manager of the new hotel, JW has achieved great accomplishments through the years. She is prepared to experience the "pause" and "restart" with the team and guests during times of difficulties, and move forward hand in hand without fear. In the past two years, every Marquis has created unforgettable glimpses of memories for guests, generating infinite enthusiasm. The motto “unafraid of the new, because of passion" is the Marquis’s commitment to the hotel's close friends and guests, the positivity energy in life and work, and most importantly the celebration of the hotel's two-year-old birthday.
“Unafraid of the new, the heart towards prosperity” The immersive JW vegetable garden dinner
On the evening of August 7, the second anniversary celebration dinner of Shanghai Luneng JW Marriott Marquis Hotel opened with elegancy. Together with Swiss’s high-end skin care brand Swissgetal, the hotel creates an immersive vegetable and fruit garden to share delicious food with guests and record the happy gathering. The dinner design is inspired by JW garden, the iconic experience of the JW Marriott brand. Adhering to the diet concept from farm to table, fresh spices, fruits and vegetables are integrated into the catering experience to bring the ultimate taste buds enjoyment to the guests. The Swissgetal brand’s concept of "returning to nature" coincides with the hotel's spirit of "completely for you, nourishing your heart and rejuvenating your life". The immersive vegetable and fruit garden jointly built by the two sides allows guests to enjoy nature on the spot. Accompanied by the green setting and fruity decorations, the six course dinner presented by the hotel chefs gave guests a full experience of creative dishes.
From the guests entering the vegetable and orchard space, the immersive journey has started. The guests will first wear the exquisite fruit brooch and headdress made by Swissgetal, and take photos in front of the art device arranged with green plants. Then, they can explore the interior of the vegetable and fruit garden, enjoy the special drinks of the vegetable garden at the specially prepared chicken tail bar, and exchange evening greetings with their friends.
The famous host Ms. Liu Yanchi was invited as the opening guest of the evening. She shared the dinner concept with the guests with a fresh opening, and introduced the “Marquis’s best friends" series launched by the hotel last year. The invited friends regard the Marquis as a second home. They are all outstanding figures in various fields, have passion toward their career, and have their own exquisite and unique opinions on life. The first of “Marquis’s best friends", Ms. Jing Jing, executive publisher and editor in chief of bazaar jewelry, also attended the ceremony and delivered a speech, "A group of dedicated, hard-working and loving people in the hotel have turned this place into the home for every guest, making everyone fall in love with it like me.”

The dinner was warming up through the speech of Ms. Pan Xiaoying, the general manager of the hotel. She shared with the guests the inspirations that were brought to her for the past two years, "On August 8 two years ago, we started the Marquis's extraordinary journey along the Huangpu River with the vision of “From taking root, to prosperity, and to fruitful results. Last year was an extraordinary year, but it would not have been if it wasn’t for the company and support of our guests. Thank you all for leaving us with countless precious memories. I also hope we can be unafraid of new beginnings, have a wholesome heart, and continue to look forward to the wonderful years to come. Shanghai Luneng JW Marriott Marquis Hotel will also continue to bring extraordinary hospitality to guests and build a wonderful 'Marquis' with unlimited enthusiasm.”
Subsequently, the "apple cake" with the meaning of beauty and peace was slowly pushed onto the center stage. Ms. Pan Xiaoying, together with Mr. Michael Malik, senior vice president of Greater China of Marriott International Group, the representative of Shanghai Branch of China Green Development Investment Group Co., Ltd, and Ms. Jing Jing, a close friend of the Marquis, knocked on the "apple" and shared the "fruit" with the guests. It symbolizes the warm transmission of love and hope.
The six course menu of the dinner was created by the hotel chef team, skillfully using the spices and ingredients freshly picked from the JW vegetable garden of the hotel. The French vegetarian bag made of green apple, avocado and cherry tomato gel was presented as an appetizer, and the smoked carbon roasted eggplant with fresh vegetable ingredients and Italian angel noodles served one after another. After removing the aftertaste with lemon sorbet, a dish of fruit wood carbon baked corn cake with roasted potatoes, green asparagus, garden carrots and tomato salsa can now nourish the taste buds. The green, healthy and delicious taste makes the body and mind naturally balanced and energetic. At the end of dinner, the dessert "summer sweet", made up of sweet melon, sago, Lily and yogurt ice cream, leaves the guest with an endless aftertaste.
“Unafraid of the new, because of passion" creative short film
On the occasion of the second anniversary’s opening, the hotel presented four talented employees to shoot the creative short film "Unafraid of the new, because of passion". They are Lu Shengyi, the Sunshine Youth in the front office, Song Ming, the chef of the cake room with infinite ingenuity, Zhu Yuxin, the elegant girl in the catering department, and Chen Xudong, the 90s young chef of flint grill. They interpret the low-key luxury of the "Marquis" with their own life attitude and every bit of work, and convey the extraordinary "Marquis" spirit through social media. Just like the message at the end of the movie, "Real luxury is created by people who love what they are engaged in. Because of passion, they become so much more persistent. " The staff of Shanghai Luneng JW Marriott Marquis Hotel also bring guests the concept of "loving, daring to love, exploring, loving and maintaining love” on a daily and consistent basis.
