Kerry arrives in Hong Kong

Claimed to be the city’s first “urban resort”, the new 546-room Kerry Hotel, Hong Kong, welcomed its first guests last week with an emphasis on world-class business and meeting services as well as its outdoor living spaces.

The debut of the hotel is an important milestone for Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts as it marks its fourth property in the city and becomes the new flagship hotel of the Kerry brand.

General manager Nicholas Smith said: “It is an integral component of the brand to embrace the community and local culture, connecting seamlessly to its neighbourhood and creating a hub where guests can expand on their lifestyle.” 

Conceived by top interior designer André Fu and award winning architect Rocco Design, the new build 16-storey hotel is the first to open on the Kowloon waterfront since 1995. 

Features include uninterrupted views over Victoria Harbour, and a multi-level podium design with extensive landscaped gardens connecting the hotel public areas and embodying its approach to its “More Room For Life” theme.

Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts acting president Madhu Rao said: “The Kerry Hotel joins Kowloon Shangri-La, Island Shangri-La and Hotel Jen Hong Kong in providing guests with a wide range of hospitality experiences and amenities.”
