The Miramar Group, which owns the Mira Hotel, is expanding its portfolio with the brand new Mira Moon hotel in it homebase of Hong Kong.
The 91-room Mira Moon, poised to open in December this year, is located on Jaffe Road in Wanchai, one of Hong Kong’s major business and commercial districts and home to the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. The building has a total of 32 floors, which means that guests will enjoy a great sense of space, with some of the suites each occupying a whole floor. There is also ample room for leisure facilities.
Like its sister hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui and also part of the Design Hotels group, the Mira Moon emphasises on modern aesthetics and lifestyle thinking, but it is unique in its theme: the traditional Chinese legend of the Moon Festival, as reflected in the logo and interior.
There are different versions to the legend, but the basic premises are about a fairy named Chang’e, who gets banished to live as a mortal on earth. But a chain of events leads her to ascend again as the Moon Goddess, together with the Jade Rabbit. The story goes that if you look at a full moon hard enough, you can catch a glimpse of the duo's shadows. The logo of Mira Moon features a silhouette of this legendary rabbit cast on a full moon while the lamps showcase a motif inspired by a graceful Chang’e floating up to the moon.
The hotel will offer the same hi-tech offerings found at the Mira, including “My Mira”, a mobile handset programmed with the hotel concierge on speed dial. Guests can take it out of the property and call the hotel for queries whenever they need help navigating the city. Other facilities at the hotel will include a gym, swimming pool and one restaurant.
