Culture and Feng Shui

Rooted in the rich traditions and heritage of China, Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel, Shanghai has been designed to include principles of Feng Shui, the ancient science of balancing spatial energy within a room, ensuring the health and prosperity of its inhabitants.

A powerful symbol in Feng Shui, as well as Chinese folklore, the majestic dragon is believed to rule rivers, lakes and seas on earth and clouds, mists and rains in heaven, representing power, strength, success, luck and honour.

Represented by a hand-made dragon boat housed in the 16-metre elevated lobby, our hotel is protected by a metaphorical spirit wall, which deflects negative energy, bringing good fortune to our guests and visitors.
