Building on its 84 year history as a global hotel icon, The Peninsula Hong Kong has unveiled the first phase of its room enhancement program with the opening of the totally refurbished and technologically-advanced Peninsula Tower rooms.
Culminating in a AUD$55 million project, that will see all 300 of the hotel’s guestrooms and suites transformed by the end of March 2013, the enhancement program began in January 2012.
“We are celebrating both the re-launch of an icon, as well as firmly cementing The Peninsula Hong Kong’s place in the future of luxury travel,” said Peninsula Hotels Chief Operating Officer, Peter Borer
“Innovation is part of the Peninsula’s DNA and the guest focused technology we have unveiled, will elevate guest stays to a whole new echelon of experiential luxury.”
The new Peninsula Tower rooms and suites adhere to the design tenets of chic elegance, with a luxury residential feel, that reflects Peninsula’s Asian history and influences, combined with the latest in technology, designed for today’s modern traveller.
Each room and suite is set in a warm neutral palette of cream and caramel silks, walnut and dark chocolate, with burl wood and lacquer cabinetry, screen doors and classic Peninsula marble bathrooms with their mood lighting, and extra features such as hands free phone and TV’s at the foot of the bath.
Evolutionary, in-room technology sets new standards of guest personalisation, with fully customised interactive digital bedside and desk tablets. Guests can control all in-room functions including, mood lighting, air conditioning, curtain control, over 80 TV and 460 international radio stations, noise cancelling earphones, valet call, weather, and privacy options at a convenient finger touch.
Guests are able to enjoy complimentary high speed wired or wireless internet access and long distance VOIP calls in-room at no charge as well as when travelling in the hotel’s Rolls-Royce fleet.
The guestrooms in the original building will be transformed and unveiled by April 2013, to usher in the Peninsula Hong Kong’s 85th anniversary celebrations.
