the International Financial Centre
|TORONTO, Sept. 12, 2005 - Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, the world's
leading luxury hotel company, is pleased to announce the opening of Four
Seasons Hotel Hong Kong, the second of three planned properties in China
and a significant addition to the brand's growing Asian portfolio.
"Four Seasons has made dramatic entry into another of the world's great cultural and business centres, heralding a new generation of luxury hotels in Hong Kong," said Wolf Hengst, president, worldwide hotel operations, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. "We are delighted to fly the Four Seasons banner in this city, and bring our anticipatory service to business and leisure travellers alike."
Set within the International Financial Centre (IFC), a complex that has redefined the famous Hong Kong skyline, the Hotel is also redefining service, with fresh and new dining options, a spa full of sensory surprises, function space that opens up to the sparkling city, and an international team of employees that makes every experience a personal and memorable one.
The Hotel is one of four towers of the IFC, home to some of the city's most prominent financial organizations and retailers. The IFC includes as well Four Seasons Place, Hong Kong's newest and most luxurious option for long term stay guests. Just 23 minutes from Chek Lap Kok Airport and directly on the Airport Express train route, Four Seasons is located at the hub of the city's financial and shopping district and within the city's sophisticated and centrally located transportation network.
Views of Victoria Harbour, the city, Kowloon Peninsula and The Peak are framed by floor to ceiling windows in 399 oversized bedrooms, as well as restaurants and other spaces throughout the Hotel. Reflecting the city's cultural heritage, rooms are offered in two design options: one featuring classic Asian motifs and the other more Western and contemporary. Whatever the style, the rooms are amongst the largest in Hong Kong, and are fitted out with features designed to make every stay productive, comfortable and memorable.
The Hotel's signature restaurant is Caprice, with a French menu created by Vincent Thierry and his team of chefs, fresh from the famed 3-Star Michelin Le Cinq at Four Seasons George V Paris. Caprice also offers guests three private dining rooms, and a Chef's Table. A second restaurant, Lung King Heen, offers contemporary Cantonese cuisine in a modern setting. The chic Blue Bar and quieter Lobby Lounge round out the Hotel's cuisine and beverage offering.
The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong is an urban oasis. From the
mother-of-pearl decorated Crystal Steam Room to the Ice Fountain cool down
area, Finnish sauna, Rhassoul chamber for rain showers and a private vitality
pool, eighteen treatment rooms and additional manicure and pedicure rooms,
The Spa offers the city's ultimate sanctuary for relaxation and pampering.
Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong joins Four Seasons Hotel Shanghai and Four Seasons Hotel Beijing (now under construction) to offer unparalleled service in China. The expanding Four Seasons Asian portfolio also includes hotels in Tokyo, Bangkok, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta and Taipei, and resorts in Langkawi, Chiang Mai and Bali, with additional properties currently in development throughout the region.
Dedicated to continuous innovation and the highest standards of hospitality, Four Seasons invented luxury for the modern traveller. From elegant surroundings of the finest quality, to caring, highly personalised 24-hour service, Four Seasons embodies a true "home away from home" for those who know and appreciate the best. The deeply instilled Four Seasons culture is personified in its employees - people who share a single focus and are dedicated, highly skilled and inspired to offer great service. Founded in 1960, Four Seasons has followed a targeted course of expansion, opening hotels in major city centers and desirable resort destinations around the world.
