After debuting in China exactly ten years ago, Four Seasons is ready to make an encore performance. Four Seasons Pudong Shanghai, the city's second Four Seasons hotel, will open on the Pudong side of the river, just a few miles from the original Four Seasons Shanghai in the central Puxi district.

Sitting high in a newly-built 55-story tower, the 187-room hotel will offer luxe private dining rooms, a 1920s Art Deco design, an Executive Club Lounge and an entire floor devoted to a health club, spa, and infinity pool. The gleaming glass tower also houses Ferrari Maserati and 73 Four Seasons private residences—which is just about as luxury as you can get. No wonder locals have nicknamed this place the "jewel box."

Compared to the original FS Shanghai, the look of the new hotel is slightly more modern and sparse. Instead of giant vases with floral displays and plush oversized armchairs, the FS Pudong has beds lower to the ground, red, black and grey finishes, and floor to ceiling windows. And that's the point, as the hotel was explicitly aiming for that "hip, 21st-century" vibe.

As for the "jewel" aspect, the hotel's ground-floor restaurant Camelia, will also be joined by the super intimate , which offers 22 seats for public dining, as well as five private dining rooms, each inspired by a different semi-precious stone. Oooh...Agate! Amethyst! Rose quartz! Which one will we choose?

Finally, way up on the 41st floor—in addition to the FLARE spa, 24-hour fitness center, brine inhalation room and tepidarium—is the hotel's infinity pool, which will offer views of that other Shanghai gem, the Oriental Pearl Tower.

Rates are set to start at $475/night.
