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