Set to open on 28 April along the shoreline of Hung Hom Bay on Victoria Harbour is Kerry Hotel, Hong Kong. The new build 16-storey hotel is the first to open on the Kowloon waterfront since 1995 and will inspire lifestyle pursuits with its outdoor living spaces, distinctive dining options, business and meeting services, as well as family activities.
The fourth Hong Kong property of the luxury hotel group Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts is centrally located with 546 rooms and will be the city’s first urban resort. The hotel was conceived by architect and interior designer Andre Fu, who is internationally renowned for his innovative approach to hospitality projects. Providing plenty of natural daylight, the hotel’s interior features multi-level podium space with extensive outdoor landscaped gardens that connect seamlessly to many public areas. In addition, a curated collection of over 1,000 art pieces are showcased throughout the property – many of which were specially commissioned from leading Asian contemporary artists to complement the fluid design of the property.
Upon arrival in the lobby, guests will be welcomed by remarkable views of the waterfront through a curved glass window that soars eight metres high and spans a width of 80 metres. The lobby opens onto a vast outdoor garden with topiary hedges. Adding to the stylish decor is a 50-metre Turkish onyx marble wall leading to the Grand Staircase and Grand Ballroom.
Guestrooms and Suites
Over 60 percent of the hotel’s guestrooms feature panoramic views of the Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong Island skyline. Starting from 42 square metres for a Deluxe Sea View Room to 294 square metres in the Presidential Suite, each guestroom is configured with contemporary comforts in mind and includes a custom-built open closet, complimentary mini-bar choices upon arrival, Internet Protocol Television with free videos on demand and bespoke lighting pendants infused with subtle Asian references.
The Club, a 300-square-metre lounge, provides guests staying on dedicated floors with personalised services and amenities. An e-concierge attends to guests’ needs both inside and outside of the hotel.
