Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Friday, 17 April 2009

Following the successful launch of its first hotel, The Opposite House in Beijing, Swire Hotels is preparing to open its second hotel - The Upper House, in Hong Kong this October.

The Upper House hotel is conveniently located within Pacific Place in Admiralty, one of Hong Kong Island’s premier integrated commercial, retail and hospitality complexes.

The hotel's 117 rooms, all featuring scenic harbour or island views, including 21 suites and 2 penthouses, begin at 730sq ft – making them among the largest in Hong Kong. Bathrooms of over 300sqft framed with panoramic windows, come with walk-in rain showers, dressing area and deep soaking baths.

Café Gray Deluxe, a 21st century ‘grand café’ located on the 49th floor overlooking Victoria Harbour, marks the return of celebrated chef Gray Kunz to Hong Kong with his unique style of European classics and signature dishes from a lifetime leading the very finest kitchens in Europe, Asia and America. The vibrant restaurant is highlighted by a 14 metre long open kitchen and equally long bar.

The hotel will also feature an outdoor lawn on the 6th floor and a sky lounge on the 49th floor.

The name, ‘The Upper House’, is derived from the design philosophy of an upward journey from Queensway towards Pacific Place, elevating into a serene house above the bustling city.

The Upper House is designed by renowned Hong Kong architect Andre Fu of AFSO with the use of natural materials, distinctive sculptures and original artwork. The contemporary Oriental design echoes the aim to provide an understated feeling of residential calmness.

“Our goal is to create a highly individualised small hotel with a dynamic and busy restaurant, and to help in showcasing the revitalised Pacific Place,” said Brian Williams, Managing Director of Swire Hotels.
