Hyatt has opened the Hyatt Regency Chongming, located on Chongming Island in Shanghai, China; the hotel introduces the Hyatt Regency brand to Shanghai and the first international upscale resort to the island.

Located at the mouth of the Yangtze River and the East China Sea, Chongming Island is the world’s largest alluvial river island. Sparsely developed and dotted with organic farms, rural villages, national parks and wetlands, it is a coveted retreat destination for Shanghai urban dwellers seeking fresh air, nature adventures and excellent dining that uses local ingredients.  The island is conveniently linked to the mainland by a tunnel and bridge, and is just a 90-minute drive from downtown Shanghai.

“Hyatt has already established a strong brand presence with four hotels in Shanghai, and we are excited to further expand our brand presence in this important market with the introduction of the Hyatt Regency brand. Hyatt Regency Chongming demonstrates our commitment to thoughtful and harmonious growth in China by bringing convenience and hospitality to a previously untapped nature-based lifestyle destination,” said Christopher Koehler, Vice President of Operations, Hyatt Hotels & Resorts, China.

“It is a privilege to unveil the first international upscale hotel on the ecologically rich island of Chongming. As the only resort destination to offer pristine landscapes and nature-based experiences so close to the Shanghai metropolis, we look forward to providing an environment that fosters meaningful relationships and connections. We are committed to exceeding the expectations of our business and leisure guests with great facilities, exciting dining options and innovative events venues,” said Douglas Schwab, general manager of Hyatt Regency Chongming.

Hyatt Regency Chongming is set in a beautiful natural environment beside the Dongtan Wetlands Park and a migratory bird reserve. The resort’s five buildings are connected by a covered Chinese-style walkway, and extensive gardens are landscaped with flowers, streams and arched bridges.

Ideal for couples, families or conference groups, the contemporary resort features spacious and comfortable guestrooms, five restaurants and tea lounges, multi-functional events venues including ‘The Campus’ meetings concept, and an extensive variety of recreational facilities for all ages.
