Constructed at a Cost of US$2.5 million
HONG KONG (January 25, 2006) --- Acclaimed as one of the world’s top hotels for business and leisure and prized for its spectacular views, InterContinental Hong Kong has just completed the creation of Asia’s most spectacular Presidential Suite. At 7,000 square feet, the 5-bedroom Presidential Suite is the largest in Hong Kong. The suite was constructed at a cost of US$2.5 million and took 253 days and 76,120 man-hours to build.
The Presidential Suite has a Duplex living room with 2-storey plate-glass
windows showcasing the hotel’s panoramic views of Victoria Harbour and
Hong Kong Island. Most spectacular is the suite’s expansive wrap-around
harbourview terrace (2500 sq. feet) with a rooftop infinity swimming pool
and Jacuzzi overlooking the harbour. The dining room, master bedroom
and bathroom and private gym also have panoramic harbour views. The suite
also has a private study and kitchenette.
“We truly feel that we have created a one-of-kind suite which showcases our hotel’s unique assets, our wonderful location and fantastic view,” said Jean-Jacques Reibel, InterContinental Hong Kong’s Managing Director. “We have clients who demand this type of suite, with the extraordinary range of facilities and services it offers.”
The Presidential Suite costs HK$87,000 (approx. US$11,183) per night, inclusive of 24-hour personal butler service, roundtrip airport limousine service by guests’ choice of Phantom VI Rolls Royce, Bentley or Mercedes limousine, plus access to Club InterContinental (Executive Lounge), wireless high speed broadband internet access and personalized concierge services.
The hotel has welcomed entertainment industry moguls, celebrities, foreign dignitaries, diplomats and top international business leaders, all of who will be guests of the new Presidential Suite. Accommodating up to 36 for seated dinners and 60 for cocktails, this will also be one of the most exclusive venues in Hong Kong for intimate private events.
InterContinental Hong Kong appointed Lim Teo + Wilkes Design Works PTE LTD of Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Milan (www.ltwdesignworks.com) to design the Presidential Suite, which is the crowning jewel of the hotel’s US$40+ million enhancements to the hotel since acquiring it in June 2001 and making it the Asia Pacific flagship for InterContinental Hotels Group. LTW Design Works was also commissioned to design the hotel’s two new specialty suites (the CEO Suite and Terrace Suite, both with large outdoor terraces and Jacuzzis overlooking Victoria Harbour) and to oversee the guest room renovations, which were the most extensive in the hotel’s 25-year history.
