The lowest altitude hotel in the world Get ready for the opening!
Shanghai, Nov.15 - InterContinental Shanghai Wonderland held a press conference to announce its opening. The 88-metre-deep hotel, clinging to a cliff in a quarry, has been named one of the world's top 10 architectural wonders along with Dubai’s Burj AI Arab Hotel.
When Shimao Group who has successfully built landmarks in more than 10 cities all over the world decided to build a five-star hotel in the abandoned quarry of Sheshan Mountain in 2006, the world's lowest altitude hotel has attracted numerous people's attention and got a nickname, "deep chasm hotel".

The complexity of the project, including the sophisticated details of the design drawing, the various difficulties faced during the construction process and the strict requirements of equipment has made a history in architecture. Now, after overcoming different obstacles and impediments, the hotel underground, Shanghai's new landmark has finally been unveiled.
In the process of construction, Shimao Group not only implemented the highest standard requirements, but has also carried out a very strict quality control of its partners.
