Hong Kong to get its third Mandarin


HONG KONG -- Promising an entirely new look to hotel rooms in Hong Kong, the soon-to-debut Landmark Mandarin Oriental is now taking reservations for Sept. 1, according to a hotel spokeswoman.

The 113-room, modern entry occupies 15 floors of a reconstructed office building around the corner from the Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong.

The Landmark is the third Mandarin property in Hong Kong. The other is the Excelsior.

The Landmark Mandarin Oriental follows the chains change in direction toward fewer rooms and more cutting-edge design.

The spokeswoman described it as a small-size, intimate hotel with large, dramatic guest rooms. 

It will serve an important, underdeveloped niche in the Hong Kong luxury hotel market, she said.

The Landmark will be the first five-star hotel of its size to open in the heart of the citys banking and fashion district. Landmark refers to the trendy shopping arcade that occupies the ground floor of the Landmark Atrium at this Gloucester Tower location, including the largest Armani store in Asia and the upmarket fashion and food retailer Harvey Nichols first store outside the U.K.

The office tower is owned by Hongkong Land, which invested $210 million to rejuvenate the core of Central Hong Kong. The hotel will be managed by Mandarin Oriental.

A strategic step in the growth of the Mandarin brand is the creation of luxury spas.

Landmarks 20,000-square-foot Spa at Mandarin Oriental will have 17 treatment rooms covering two floors. Treatments include wet heat developed from bathing cultures in the Middle East and Europe plus Asias first rasul, a skin detoxification treatment. Couples will have their own 700-foot VIP Sanctuary with steam sauna and plunge pool. The spa also will have two Pilates and yoga studios and a Spa Cafe.

The smallest guest room is 500 square feet, and the largest of the 12 suites is 1,800 square feet. All rooms have broadband access (wireless in meeting rooms) with connections for MP3 players. Rooms/suites are $500 to $1,500 per night.
