Marriott has opened the second hotel under its Sheraton brand in Hong Kong, located in Lantau Island.
The Sheraton Hong Kong Tung Chung is situated atop T-Bay in Tung Chung, home to a hub of restaurants, bars and shops, and a ten-minute drive from Hong Kong International airport and Asia-World Expo.
The new hotel comprises 218 rooms and suites featuring pastel shades, full-length windows with views of the mountain and the sea, and walls adorned with local art. Amenities include a 49-inch LCD television, high-speed wifi and premium bath products.
The property also has an executive lounge open to executive floor guests and Marriott Bonvoy Platinum members, which offers complimentary breakfast, and happy hour drinks and canapés.
Dining venues include Sunset Grill, a rooftop “temple to dry-aged meats”, modern Chinese restaurant Yue, a lobby lounge with artisan coffee from local brand Porter Coffee, and all-day dining spot Café Lantau, which features local and international dishes served at live stations.
As part of the brand’s community programme, the hotel has partnered with local bee farm Mui Wo Lychee Hill Holiday Farm to offer exclusive tours for guests, while also incorporating the honey into signature drinks including the Honey Bourbon Old Fashioned at Sunset Grill.
The hotel also has a 24-hour fitness centre, a swimming pool, and a kids playroom. In terms of meetings and events space, the hotel claims to have one of the largest ballrooms in Hong Kong, capable of accommodating 1,300 guests, and four meeting rooms along with two outdoor terraces.
Henry Lee, President of Greater China at Marriott International, commented:
“We are thrilled to celebrate the opening of our second Sheraton Hotel in Hong Kong. Sheraton is Marriott International’s most global brand, and this opening marks another exciting milestone for the brand’s continued expansion in the region.
“We look forward to offering travellers more choices and flexibility through tailored services and inviting spaces that provide them chances to connect with the community as they visit this metropolitan city.”
The new hotel will join the existing Sheraton Hong Kong Hotel and Towers in Tsim Sha Tsui. The group also intends to open the city’s first Four Points by Sheraton in Tung Chung in early 2021.
Marriott operates 450 hotels in over 70 countries and territories under the Sheraton brand.
