A new hotel opening in Shanghai won’t be known for offering city views.

Built into a quarry at the base of Tianmen Mountain, the InterContinental Shanghai Wonderland will be opening its doors later this month after 10 years of construction.

Initially meant to open in October, the hotel is now set to open on December 1. According to the hotel’s website, rooms will become available for booking on November 20.

Sixteen of the hotel’s 18 floors are underground, and the rooms on the bottom two floors are completely submerged and face a 33-foot-deep aquarium. The underwater portion of the hotel also includes a restaurant, pool, and watersports center, according to CNN.

The property also boasts its own waterfall, which is adjacent to the hotel. Most of the hotel’s rooms face the waterfall along with scenic cliffs and hills because of its proximity to Tianmen Mountain National Park.

Rooms will be available for booking on November 20 on InterContinental’s website, and start from approximately $US487 a night.
