One of the most luxurious hotels in not just Hong Kong, but the whole of Asia, has opened executive floors for the first time. The Island Shangri-La, Hong Kong has opened an Horizon Club Lounge on level 56 of the hotel. The opulent lounge, which is one of the highest in the city, connects to an outdoor landscaped area and will offer meeting facilities, complimentary continental breakfast and other breakfast options at the adjacent Michelin-starred Restaurant Petrus. These privileges as well as evening cocktails and Champagne, and enhanced amenities are available exclusively for guests residing on the dedicated Horizon Club floors from 52 to 55.

The HK$30-million (US$3.8 million) opening of one of the most exquisite Horizon Clubs in the world at over 2,700 square feet (260 square metres), will be a hallmark of the Island Shangri-La, Hong Kong.

On stepping out on level 56, guests will be met with a birds eye view, through floor-to-ceiling panel windows, of the worlds largest indoor silk mural the Great Motherland of China displayed in the 16-storey Atrium. Continuing the sense of Chinese culture is an impressive Asian art piece at the intricately gilded entranceway of the Horizon Club Lounge.

Inside, the signature view of Victoria Harbour from the cinematic windows will be a destination in itself and will complement the interior conceived by LRF Designers Limited. Dark wood sets the tone against rich jewelled hues and handcrafted crystal chandeliers, which blend seamlessly with Asian accents of artefacts and the archetypal qi pao (traditional Chinese dress), and mandarin-collared attire of the club concierge.

Throughout the guests stay in the Horizon Club, they will experience the touches and technology that define Island Shangri-La, Hong Kong. Each guest will be greeted individually, escorted to their room and welcomed with Chinese tea. Customised with the latest comforts, and to sustain a feeling of calm in the hectic city, the Horizon Club guestrooms will feature the latest conveniences including a jack panel for a computer and iPod, butler-call button, espresso machine as well as an entertainment system comprising a DVD player and a flat screen television. Other luxury features include tea or coffee served with wake-up calls, daily international newspapers, a television in the bathroom, a crystal chandelier, rain shower, Frette linen, premium toiletries and complimentary broadband internet access.

Among the on-site services of the Horizon Club Lounge, is a harbour-facing meeting room which accommodates up to eight persons, an intimate corner library and complimentary wireless internet access. The adjoining outdoor space of approximately 1,600 square feet (150 square metres) is furnished and landscaped with lush tropical greenery and offers prime views of Victoria Peak.

We are responding to a market today that expects greater selection, flexibility and personalisation. The Horizon Club will afford such service, privacy and exclusivity for our guests at an even higher level, said Mr. Darren Gearing, Island Shangri-La Hong Kongs Area Manager and General Manager, when commenting on the decision to establish a Horizon Club in the hotel after 18 years of operation.
