Capella Jian Ye Li is the latest from the classy Capella group –and this is the opening voted ‘Most Anticipated’ by the TLTB team. We love the look of this one! The hotel is due to open in Spring 2017 but an early sneak peak while in Shanghai last year means we’re already in lust with this boutique hotel. Located within Hengfu historical and cultural preservation zone of the Xuhui District, Capella Shanghai, Jian Ye Li will be the city's only all-villa urban resort in the last remaining cluster of historical ’shikumen’ (courtyard warehouses), which were the landmark of 1930s Shanghai. The urban resort will feature 55 “shikumen” villas, 40 luxurious residences, The Capella Library, a French brasserie, an Auriga Spa and a retail gallery of niche lifestyle brands. A show villa highlights interior designs come from the stable of renowned Indonesian designer Jaya Ibrahim who worked on the concept before his death last year.
