Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong announces exciting enhancement plans
Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong is embarking on a major transformation programme encompassing its guest rooms, lobby and F&B offering, with support from Remedios Studio and AB Concept.
October 2020 marks the beginning of a new era for the luxury hotel as it signifies the start of an ambitious renovation project. We find out what’s in store for the popular Hong Kong landmark.
Grand transformation plans
From spring 2021, guests will be met with a transformed arrival experience in the lobby, and they’ll be able to unwind in the hotel’s two new venues: a cafe and a cocktail bar. The enhancement programme will also see the reimagination of the hotel’s guest rooms, which will be phased through the course of next year.
“We are excited to soon unveil a new stay experience that will reinforce the hotel’s position since its debut in Hong Kong in 2005,” said Bill Taylor, regional vice president and general manager of Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong. “We are creating a destination where guests can revel in the rich blend of cultures and tastes that Hong Kong represents, and further maintain our position as the mecca of fine dining with eight Michelin stars under one roof, and the pulse of Hong Kong with a new bar and cafe concept.”
A reimagined lifestyle experience
With regards to the overall design aesthetic, the guest rooms will integrate a unique spin on modernism inspired by Hong Kong and traditional detailing that’s been carefully crafted under the direction of Remedios Studio, a firm whose portfolio includes a series of international hospitality projects. These rooms promise to fuse a sense of tranquillity with the integration of high-end technology.
Meanwhile, architectural and interior design practice AB Concept has come up with the vision for the hotel’s reimagined lobby, bar and cafe space. In the lobby, visitors can expect an arrival area distinguished by curvature, complementing its grand windows and a newly created seating area designed for guests to congregate.
In addition, a new neoclassical designed bar will be located on the ground floor, replacing the former Blue Bar. The hotel’s beverage manager and beverage ambassador of Four Seasons Asia Pacific, Lorenzo Antinori, aims to transform the future of drinking at this premier address. With this in mind, it’s hoped the bar will become a Hong Kong staple among spirit aficionados with innovative programming, collaborations and cocktails drawing on new sources.
The new lobby cafe will lie adjacent to this bar, designed as a cosy nook centred around the grand spiral staircase for casual meetings, chic dining by day and sophisticated drinks by night. A contemporary crystal screen will provide the cafe with a sense of privacy in its position at the heart of the lobby.
The hotel will remain open throughout the transformation period and continue to welcome guests to its accommodation, restaurants and bars, spa facilities and event spaces during this time.
