THE ONE Executive Suites in Shanghai is Kempinski’s latest addition to its portfolio of luxury, serviced residences that include Beijing, Jakarta, Bangkok, Doha, Dubai, Istanbul, Geneva and St Moritz.

THE ONE represents the chain’s entry into Shanghai that still lacks a Kempinski, unlike in Beijing where its Kempinski Hotel Beijing Lufthansa Center is an established player.

Located in the key district of Jing’an – where a slew of mega commercial-retail projects are on the rise – this 224-unit property has the licenses to cater to both transient and long-term visitors. Said general manager Karina Ansos: “There are several sectors we can cater to: expats, who have relocated with their families, and are in the process of looking for more permanent apartments; those who are here on temporary assignment for projects; and single people who appreciate our exclusivity, the space and facilities such as the kitchenette.”

Suites come in one-, two- and three-bedroom configurations, with the largest category at 300 sqm and boast heated floors for winter and balconies. All have separate bedroom and living room areas. There are currently two dining options on the premises: Lind Bakery, operated by a German chef, who whips up daily breakfast, can arrange special events or meals for the residents and even sells his pastry items, and Su Yang Club, a Chinese restaurant specialising in Shanghainese and Huaiyang cuisine; a Japanese restaurant is also soon to open. Wifi is available in the public areas and guest apartments.
