The Peninsula, Shanghai, China
The Peninsula name really speaks for itself and the Rolls Royces parked outside ensure that tradition is continued in Shanghai since Peninsula's arrival in October 2009.
Views of the Bund are unrivalled and the facilities here are the epitome of luxury, from the spas and pool to the superb restaurants. Rooms are subtly state-of-the-art and beautifully furnished.
This is about as opulent as it gets in Shanghai.
