Like most 5 stars hotel, the hotel offers a wide variety of dining options. Breakfast is complimentary with the stay and the buffet spread is extremely generous. One of the exciting experiences at Intercontinental Shenzhen will be the Galleon Restaurant and Bar. This interesting restaurant bar is in a Caribbean ship where it is not exactly visible at the ground level. However, if you look down from your hotel room, you will be wondering why the hotel would place a massive ship structure in the pool within the hotel compound. Hidden like a gem behind the hotel, this sensational structure is in fact a bar, which offers food, drinks as well as a live band! Visitors are highly recommended to ‘board’ the ship for a unique dining experience.
