Intercontinental Shimao Shanghai Wonderland

Designed by U.K. based engineering firm Atkins,(company behind the Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai),and developed by Shanghai Shimao Property Group,an extravagant hotel deep within a 100-metre pit at the the foot of Tianmashan Mountain .

Located about 45 kilometers southwest of Shanghai's city center,surrounded by a theme park, the hotel, named InterContinental Shimao Shanghai Wonderland,is scheduled to open in late 2014 to early 2015.

The hotel will have a total of 19 floors — three of which will be above ground and the remaining 16 extending into the bottom of the pit, including an underwater restaurant.

The 380-room resort will also offer guests spa services, a sports facility like rock climbing and bungee jumping.

A 60-meter glass curtain will be built to mimic a waterfall next to the resort’s main structure.

Nightly room rates will start from RMB 2,000 (US$320), twice the price currently charged by nearby five-star hotels.
