Hong Kong is set to get its first property under Intercontinental Hotels Group’s (IHG) Kimpton Hotel and Restaurant brand, with the Kimpton Hong Kong becoming the fifth hotel in Greater China in the brand’s development pipeline.
The new property will form part of the redevelopment of the more than 50-year-old Mariners’ Club in Hong Kong’s Tsim Sha Tsui district.
The hotel is reportedly set to open by 2023 and will offer some 500 rooms, according to the South China Morning Post. Features will include a chapel, three conference rooms, a pool and a sky garden, with the first seven floors of the property being occupied by the new Mariners’ Club.
“The newly signed hotel will combine Hong Kong’s modern style with retro elegance, to perfectly reflect the spirit of the Kimpton brand and bring a unique luxury experience to guests,” said Jolyon Bulley, IHG Greater China’s CEO.
Kimpton is a newcomer to Asia’s hotel scene, having made its debut only in March this year with the opening of the Kimpton Da An in Taipei.
The brand has five other Greater China properties in its pipeline including the new Hong Kong hotel. These are: Kimpton Shanghai Jing’an, Kimpton Sanya Haitang Bay, Kimpton Nanjing Financial City, and Kimpton Beijing Dashilar.
Elsewhere in Asia, the brand also has new properties under development in Bali, Bangkok and Tokyo.
