The Group aims to build a new flagship and prestige hotel with international exposure. Project accomplished through layout design, guestroom provisions and furnishing for this landmark building.
Hospitals surround hotel location as one of the busy traffic hubs and a historical Sikh Temple. Sikh Temple is a historic building and very sensitive to underground works. Based on such technical constraints, a set of particular foundation design and precautions apply during construction to minimise the disturbance. Even though both construction cost and time increase substantially.
To balance the time, cost, quality, logistics planning as well as user’s experience, appointed renowned designers including “ Autoban” from Turkey and Mr Patrick Blanc from France to implement the furnishing of the hotel. They help comply with the design brief by sourcing and selecting the most elegant pieces worldwide from chandeliers, lighting, art, decorations and groceries for guestrooms and restaurants. Both of them offer the best services and products up to an international standard.
Façade design, as well as the exterior lighting, is another highlight of high technical difficulty to complete. The project includes different designs to address both aesthetic needs and disturbance concerns, yielding to the successful façade that glistens in the neighbourhood every night.
Dashing yet pleasing, vibrant yet elegant – The Emperor Hotel offers the urban vibe but still, upscale flair, amenities and services. Consisting of 299 rooms with an ultimately sleek design, excellent services and cutting-edge facilities, the Hotel assures every stay and experience would be an unforgettable one. The Emperor Hotel garnered recognition by ‘MICHELIN Guide Hong Kong Macau 2019′ with ‘3 Black Pavilion’, which has been rating as a ‘Very Comfortable’ hotel. It is a recognition for the design and services, as well as facilitate the continuous service improvement efforts.
This Hotel also practises environmental-friendly operation, and targets to achieve Bronze grading under BEAM PLUS.
