The Jin Tao is the building with the gigantic corkscrew-shaped tower on its roof that fascinated you as your plane was landing in Shanghai.
It is home to Shanghai's world financial centre and above it, from the 79th to the 93rd floors, the Park Hyatt, which was the tallest hotel in the world for a long time. The elevator in the private foyer on the ground floor whisks you up to the reception in record time. The Park Hyatt has taken maximum advantage of its stunning location. Its stylish rooms, with black lacquered doors and sleek furnishings in beige and brown, have huge windows. Ditto for many of the bathrooms, in which the shower is placed near windows, giving you the impression of taking a shower in the sky.
The infinity pool on the 88th floor will bring you similar joy. And for maximum relaxation, a tai chi master awaits you in the interior garden, high up in the air.
