The Chairman Suite tub provides a panoramic view of Pudong, the Bund and Huangpu River. Outdoor? No one will be peeking at this height.
Though this four-year-old hotel's not actually on the Bund proper, its location just north of Suzhou Creek delivers staggering views of the Bund, the Pudong skyline and the curve of the Huangpu River.
On a clear day, you can see well into the neighborhoods on both sides of the river; and at night, the Pudong skyline lights up like an overflowing jewelry box with its lights reflected against the dark water of Huangpu.
To take in this view while taking a soak, book the Presidential Suite whose tub has a rain showerhead and jets, or the 300 square-meter Chairman Suite, which has a private roof deck, complete with Jacuzzi.
Shangri-La boasts a sweeping Puxi view stretching from the Huangpu River to as far as Zhongshan Park.
For a view from the other side of the river, slip into Shangri-La's Lujiazui and Huangpu suites' tubs.
If looking at the Pudong skyline is akin to seeing the future, the Puxi skyline is an odd juxtaposition -- the Bund's impressive array of Old World architecture backed by a dizzying array of skyscrapers and high-rise complexes.
Depending on what suite you're in, you either get the Puxi skyline, complete with cargo and cruise barges making their way down the Huangpu; or a view of Lujiazui, with the Oriental Pearl Tower a literal stone's throw from your window.
If the dust and grime of a day of sightseeing has gotten the best of you, retreat to your plush suite, turn on the hot water tap and clean yourself off with bath products from L'Occitane.
The Ritz-Carlton Shanghai Pudong, which lies opposite to the Shangri-La, offers similar views from its suite tubs alongside Acqua di Parma products.
