Cordis hotel brand to make debut with Chinese art, signature fragrance


Langham Hospitality Group’s new Cordis lifestyle brand will make its debut when the Langham Place Mongkok Hong Kong is reflagged on Aug. 26.

The 664-room Cordis Hong Kong will display more than 1,500 pieces of Chinese art on the walls and in public spaces. Langham said the art collection is worth $4.5 million.

A renovated 36th floor club lounge offers views of the city. The four restaurants include the Michelin-starred Ming Court and Alibi, a shared-plate restaurant and bar.

Perfumer Christophe Laudamiel designed an ambient fragrance, Sparkling Mint, for the new brand.

All guest rooms are equipped with a smartphone giving guests complimentary, unlimited local and international direct-dialing calls to Australia, China, Singapore, the United Kingdom and the United States, along with 3G data connectivity and WiFi hotspots anywhere in the city.

The rooftop pool plays underwater music and the Chuan Spa offers treatments based upon traditional Chinese medicine.

Langham announced the brand in January and said at the time that it signed management agreements or letters of intent for properties in China, Bali and Sri Lanka. Langham is eyeing expansion of the brand to London, New York, Los Angeles and Dubai.

The name Cordis is derived from the Latin word for “heart.”
