Banyan Tree Hotel on the Bund
When people think of romantic hotels, the Southeast Asian resort and spa chain Banyan Tree immediately comes to mind. Luckily for couples in Shanghai, the world-class brand opened a luxurious urban oasis in late 2012. Situated on the bank of the Huangpu River just north of the Bund, the 12-story hotel has 130 rooms, many of which have private pools with views of Pudong just across the river. A night in an “Oasis with a Romantic Pool” starts at $420. Check out the hotel’s Honeymoon and Romantic Getaway packages, which include spa treatments.
