I haven’t personally been to the beautiful city of Shanghai yet…
One day I will!
Until I do, here’s what I found while daydreaming about “actually” going to the historical city – an AMAZING boutique hotel!
A former warehouse in a historical part of the city’s South Bund riverside has been transformed into a “shabby chic” (a new term I just learned here) 19-room elegant boutique hotel with a roof top terrace overlooking the Bund on the other side!
Welcome to the Waterhouse!
Huh?! But wait…
The unassuming facade opens up to…
The facade of the old Japanese Army Headquarters turned warehouse remains while the inside – well as you can see – clean, minimal and oh-so-chic!
I think I’m in love.
Well it’s very clever placements of “shades” on the walls surrounding the courtyard!
Like art I tell ya!
What a view!
Speaking of views…
Oh I could sooooo soak in this tub for hours!
Wait till you see the rooms…
I am getting so many ideas from this room right now my brain’s bout to burst!!!
Love the platform!
Notice the vintage luggage strategically placed? NICE!
The partitioning of this room is AMAZING!
Maybe I’ll use this for my next place – if I can afford one!
The restaurant is by non other than former Gordon Ramsay protege Jason Atherton.
Read about this here.
I dunno bout you, but I’m totally salivating!
The setting’s pretty zen don’t you think?
Mommy mommy I want these!!!
Talk bout attention to detail!
Ooh ooh ooh and these!
So long for now Waterhouse.
I hope one day I get to see you!
