Island Shangri-La Hong Kong launches Horizon Club lounge

14 Nov 2009

Island Shangri-La Hong Kong will launch its US$3.8 million Horizon Club Lounge next month, December. The 18-year-old property has never featured such a facility, unlike other Shangri-Las in the chain, believing the sense of exclusivity could be provided throughout all levels. But with rapid changes in customer tastes, the policy has been re-thought, and hence, the push for the new space.

Said general manager Darren Gearing: “We are responding to a market today that expects greater selection, flexibility, personalisation and recognition.”

Located on the 56th floor, the main lounge (below) with signature views of Victoria Harbour connects to an outdoor landscaped area, unique to the city. Victoria Peak can be seen from here. Conceptualisers LKF Designers chose dark
wood to set the tone against jewelled hues and handcrafted crystal
chandeliers and combined with Asian accents. The staff are garbed in
traditional Chinese outfits, qi pao for the ladies and suits with mandarin collars for the club concierge.

On-site services of the lounge include use of the harbour-facing meeting room for eight persons and a corner library as well as free wireless internet access. Members of Shangri-La’s Golden Circle Elite programme are entitled to use the facility but their guests will be charged for consumables.
