The Hotel in Detail

On the outskirts of bustling Shanghai, the Jiang Nan river runs through an altogether more peaceful setting. Follow it under stone bridges and along ancient canals lined with blossoming gardens and traditional timber framed houses. This is Zhenze, home to the magical Shuian Waterside House.

This boutique hotel immerses guests in the heritage of eastern China. While the exterior is the image of a Qing Dynasty rural residence, inside you’ll find a celebration of Old Shanghai style. Chinese art deco design flows throughout Zhenze Waterside House. You’ll find it in the ornate glasswork in the windows, and the smooth lines of the furniture in your room or suite. Handwoven silk quilts and artwork take you further back in time to this water town’s past in the silk-weaving trade.

For a closer look at local culture, ask the hotel to arrange a tour of Zhenze. Or your personal butler can set up a class where you’ll learn the art of Qipiao dress making. Spend the afternoon at the on-site teahouse, savouring Biluochun tea, a local speciality. Then take a seat in the garden restaurant for fine dining fare. Your meal may even be accompanied by a performance of Pingtan on request – an artform developed in nearby Suzhou.
