Capella Shanghai Jian Yen Li opens September 2017

When it opens in September, the Capella Shanghai, Jian Ye Li will make the most of being tucked away in this cultural preservation zone, providing guests with a much-needed reprieve from the bustling city outside—and a deeper understanding of its history.

The compound, which features 55 villas and 40 luxe residences, is spread across 22 shikumen (or stone gate) lanes that connect over 200 two-story townhouses that date back to the 1930s. Originally built by a French real estate company, each of the buildings has been meticulously restored by Jaya International Design’s team of experts to fully showcase the unique blend of Eastern and Western architecture—now a rarity in the ever-modernizing city. This cultural fusion continues inside each elegantly decorated villa, which range in size from one to three bedrooms and from nearly 1,200 square feet to a palatial 2,700 square feet.

In addition to ultra-luxurious touches like Aqua di Parma bath products and a dedicated Capella personal assistant, guests of Capella Shanghai will also have access to the property’s Auriga Spa, which features unique treatments based on the cycles of the moon.

After long days out exploring—the city’s best shopping and must-see sights, like the iconic arts galleries of Tianzifang, are located just steps away from the hotel—guests can dine in serious style at the property’s le Comptoir de Pierre Gagnaire restaurant, which is the first opening in mainland China for the multi-Michelin-starred chef and will serve his signature take on French cuisine.

Four Seasons Hotel Austin unveils complete renovation of all rooms and suites

Four Seasons Hotel Austin is unveiling this September the renovation of all 291 rooms and suites as the last phase of a two-year, multi-phase enhancement that’s already revitalised the hotel’s Spa and Fitness Centre, porte cochere entry and meeting spaces.

Led by Michael Dalton, principal of Whitespace Interiors and a University of Texas alumnus, the rooms redesign draws its inspiration from the lakefront estates perched along the shores of nearby Lake Austin and Lake Travis. With manicured lawns that slope to the water below – not unlike the tranquil setting of Four Seasons Hotel Austin on Lady Bird Lake – the homes evoke an easy elegance that’s mirrored in the new rooms through calming, neutral tones and inviting décor.

Soothing blues and greys, borrowed from brushstrokes found throughout the Hill Country and in the hotel’s lakeside backyard, mingle with rich wood and metallic accents. The addition of crown moulding and custom millwork provides character and depth while drawing attention to each room’s new artwork, including detailed pencil sketches and an Austin-inspired landscape.

Dalton maximised space with sophisticated low-profile pieces, from a custom-built étagère in the travertine-tiled entryway – home to the snack bar, safe, mini-bar and liquor cabinet – to built-in shelves, cabinets and a multi-functional workstation along one wall. A sitting area for up to four people gives the room a welcoming vibe courtesy of a crescent-shaped sofa and nested furniture that can be discreetly tucked away when not in use.

Long-time guests will also note several new technological upgrades designed to improve functionality and comfort. For example, Snooze white noise machines – purchased from a Kickstarter campaign – grace the bedside table, where guests can also find integrated outlets and strategically placed charging ports for their devices. Bluetooth-enabled SoundLink Minis in each room allow guests to listen to music from their own device.

The neutral colour palette in the guest rooms continues into the hotel’s suites, where the Four Seasons experience is elevated further with custom furnishings and high-end finishes, not to mention the luxury of space.

The Presidential, Congressional and Governor’s specialty suites were completely reimagined with nearly US$1 million invested in these three spaces alone, resulting in open, inviting layouts and tailored details.

Presidential Suite: Situated on the ninth floor with high ceilings and views of Lady Bird Lake – perfectly framed through sliding glass doors that open to juliet balconies – the 137-square-metre Presidential Suite epitomises the convergence of classic design with modern conveniences and technology. A butler’s kitchen, two lounge seating areas including a “jam pit” for impromptu creative sessions, and a dining room with a statement wood-and-bronze table and see-through fire box provide generous living space. Guests can also retreat to the master bedroom with its four-poster canopy bed and daybed by the window, or sink into the freestanding soaking tub in the large master bath.

Congressional Suite: More than any other room in the hotel the 145-square-metre Congressional Suite offers guests an indoor-outdoor living experience. Double doors and an antique bronze bench in the entry open to a main living area featuring hardwood floors and furnishings such as a velvet sleeper sofa, chocolate suede lounge chair and dyed cowhide ottoman. A dining area with a custom wood-and-metal table and chestnut mohair sofa seating, as well as a butler’s kitchen and second sitting nook, make entertaining a breeze. Along one entire wall, Durango-style iron and glass doors draw the eye outward to a 89-square-metre wraparound deck, where a full-sized dining table, bar area, two fire features and lounge seating for up to 11 provide the perfect setting to enjoy the suite’s views of Lady Bird Lake.

Governor’s Suite: Located on the seventh floor, the 100-square-metre Governor’s Suite combines the size of a small home with the character of a fine residence. Featuring three step-out balconies that tout 180-degree views of Lady Bird Lake, the suite is filled with noteworthy furniture and décor including raw cowhide stools and ottomans, a quartz nesting table, A. Rudin armchairs and leather upholstery. Guests will find the layout roomy and well-designed, with a dining area, butler’s kitchen, two seating areas, two full bathrooms and a sanctuary-like master bedroom.

Finishing up this phase is the remodel of existing Executive Suites and Lake View Suites, as well as the construction of 6 new City View Suites. Situated in the centre of the hotel looking straight down bustling San Jacinto Boulevard, the newly created suites boast 69 square metres of living space filled with statement pieces such as a Carrera marble and antique bronze coffee table, rich walnut furnishings and an L-shaped sectional sleeper sofa. Two step-out balconies, one from the living area and another from the bedroom, provide unrivalled views of Austin’s urban cityscape.
