The hotel, InterContinental Shanghai Wonderland, 上海洲际世茂仙境酒店, Shànghǎi Zhōujì Shìmào Xiānjìng Jiǔdiàn, called also Tianma Pit Hotel, or Shimao Quarry Hotel, Songjiang, or Pit Pegasus Hotel, is built in a deep pit beside Tianma Mountain in Songjiang district of Shanghai.

After few delays, the opening of the hotel is expected to be around the end of 2018.

The British InterContinental Hotels Group will run the project as one of its flagship hotels in the country under the banner of Shimao Wonderland InterContinental. According to Shanghaiist, the group has an investment of US$555 million in the project.

Rooms are expected to be priced at a floor of US$320 per night.

Shanghai Songjiang National Scenic Area was hidden in an abandoned pit. This pit was the quarry of the Japanese invaders before the liberation, and they used the stones collected there to build bunkers.

In 2006, Shimao Group decided to make use of the natural environment in the deep pit to build a five-star hotel, integrating the entire hotel with the area.

The project has been established as early as 2006. Shimao Group spent seven years on scientific feasibility studies and geological examination to solve all the architectural problems of the underground space.
