Twelve at Hengshan
Twelve at Hengshan, a Luxury Collection Hotel, is a modern-Chinoiserie hotel on Shanghai’s historic, tree-lined Hengshan Road. With its modern-Chinoisserie design, latest contemporary amenities and nature-inspired Zen ambience, it promises an exclusive oasis of urban chic in the heart of China’s most cosmopolitan city.
The new-build hotel is a creation of Italian architect Mario Botta.

At the heart of the hotel, a traditional Chinese Atrium Garden for hotel guests enhances Twelve at Hengshan’s unique character and soothing Zen ambience.
The distinctive interiors are by New York-based cult hospitality design duo Yabu Pushelberg. The romantic design mixes cultures and timelines in an East meets West, Past meets Present style. A soft, natural colour palette is offset by bespoke Chinese and contemporary furnishings, hand-painted Oriental screens, and soothing garden motifs in the guestrooms.
