Aiming to become one of Hong Kong’s top
destinations when it launches in early autumn 2009, Hullett House
will be a celebration of Hong Kong’s past showcased within some of
its most stunning heritage architecture.
Hullett House consists of a design-led intimate
heritage hotel, five restaurants and bars, a souvenir store and a
performance area specially created as a venue for traditional
festivals and celebrations.
The creative vision of David Yeo, founder
of the aqua restaurant group, Hullett House will be brought to
life within one of the four oldest government buildings in Hong
Kong, the historical former Marine Police Headquarters’ in Tsim
Yeo said, “Hong Kong’s heritage is not widely
celebrated yet we have such a rich and diverse culture and many
unique traditions. Hullett House is “by Hong Kong. For Hong Kong…
We give you old Hong Kong.”
The design-led intimate
heritage hotel will have all the modern and technical in-room
facilities of a contemporary hotel. Suites will be spacious and
range in size from 600 to 800 sq ft, with each opening to a
private balcony, replete with wonderful views of the Hong Kong
cityscape and Victoria Harbour.
The room décor of each
suite has been influenced by a period of time in the history of
Hong Kong and includes references from imperial China in the
1870’s, through to the English countryside and the contemporary
vigour of Chinese pop art.
The five restaurants and bars
of Hullett House will bear strikingly diverse identities whilst
offering something for everybody whether that’s a cup of tea, a
light snack or a fine dining experience. The offerings will vary
from venue to venue with the help of a cutting edge team of
International and local chefs and skilled culinary artisans.
Dining experiences will include contemporary European dining, an
old British-style pub with its own jail cells, and a gourmet
Cantonese restaurant; all of which seek to conjure up memories of
days gone by.
Also included within the Hullett House
establishment will be the Souvenir Store, selling a variety of
bespoke Hong Kong keepsakes and traditional Cantonese treats and
designer amenities from the Hullett House hotel.
