Shangri-La Asia Limited has announced that it will build and operate a multi-use complex on Hung Luen Rd at Hung Hom Bay that will include a Traders Hotel as well as retail and leisure facilities.
The announcement followed the official confirmation that Shangri-La won the bid for the land acquisition at a government auction. The Traders Hotel will be the company’s fourth in Hong Kong.
The 15-storey hotel will boast 698 guestrooms with a minimum size of 32 square metres. Facilities will include three restaurants, a 1000 square metre health club plus a 50 by 25 metres outdoor swimming pool facing the harbour. Meeting and banqueting facilities will include a 700-square-metre ballroom.
"We are delighted to have been awarded this prime location on Victoria Harbour," said Greg Dogan, president and chief executive officer of Shangri-La International Hotel Management Limited. "The area around Hung Hom Bay is going through a redevelopment and with the facilities offered at the new complex we will be able to offer valuable amenities to back the surrounding community."
