of the vision for the hotel on behalf of all owner-investors
“Today, a new chapter is to be written, in terms of what Hong
Kong’s airport experience has to offer- the perfect amalgamation
of top quality ‘MICE, Leisure and Transportation’ services
completed by the opening of the SkyCity Marriott Hotel. Though a
new-joiner, Shun Tak is by no means new to the hotel industry,

Our partner, Dragages, is renowned for developing and managing

adding to the partnership valuable insights in laying out the
strategic foundation of this new venture. Combining the strengths
of both partners, we hope to make solid contributions to our
community and economy.”
