Name: Shimao InterContinental

Related: InterContinental, Shanghai

Location: China

When searching for a hotel with an outlandish, almost unbelievable design, the five star Shimao Intercontinental being built outside Shanghai in China fits the bill. Using British design vision a waterfall shaped hotel has been created that drops down off a vertical cliff face.

Carved into the edge of an abandoned quarry outside Shanghai, the five-star Intercontinental resort is due for completion in early 2017.

This lavish £345million five-star hotel includes 328 rooms on 19 storeys cascading down a rugged cliff face toward a 90-meter-deep lagoon. Two storeys will be built underwater and will feature an aquarium with glass walls. The British design firm behind the plans claim the roof of the £345-million hotel will sit just 15 metres above ground.
