The official opening ceremony began with a traditional Chinese blessing followed by speeches, unveiling the hotel logo, ribbon cutting and a champagne toast. After a lively Lion Dance and Eye-Dotting ceremony, General Manager Mark S. Bradford addressed the invited guests.
“We are delighted to bring Mandarin Oriental’s legendary hospitality to the exciting city of Shenzhen,” said Bradford. “As well as fabulously luxurious and spacious rooms, we have eight distinctive restaurants and bars, making us a must-visit destination for the discerning diners of Shenzhen."

Attendees then moved to the lobby for the unveiling of a digital art display introduced by artist Mu Lei, a pioneer of Chinese contemporary art. The stunning work is inspired by the forward-looking environment of oceanside Shenzhen and the cloud-touching height of the hotel. A virtual waterfall, 4m high, symbolises the energy of the city, with the stones and waves hand-painted by Mu Lei using digital tools as brushes.
