Acclaimed as one of the world’s top hotels for business and leisure and prized for its spectacular views, InterContinental Hong Kong is home to Asia’s most spectacular Presidential Suite. Completed in late January 2006 at a cost of US$2.5 million, the Presidential Suite took 253 days and 76,120 man-hours to build.
As per InterContinental Hong Kong’s General Manager Claus Pedersen, “With the best location and best views in Hong Kong, we wanted to create a one-of-a-kind suite which showcases our hotel’s unique assets.”
The 5-bedroom Presidential Suite is the largest in Hong Kong (7,000 sq. feet) – with a Duplex living room with 2-storey plate-glass windows with panoramic views of Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong Island. Most spectacular is the suite’s expansive wrap-around harbourview terrace (2,500 sq. feet) with a rooftop infinity swimming pool and Jacuzzi overlooking Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong Island, providing an “IMAX” experience of Hong Kong. The dining room, master bedroom and bathroom and private gym also have panoramic harbour views. The suite also has a private study and kitchenette.
The Presidential Suite costs from HK$98,000 (approx. US$12,629) for the Master Suite to HK$118,000 (approx. US$15,206) for all 5 bedrooms, plus 10% service charge per night, inclusive of 24-hour personal butler service, roundtrip airport limousine service by guests’ choice of Phantom VI Rolls Royce, Bentley or Mercedes limousine, plus access to Club InterContinental (Executive Lounge) with daily buffet breakfast, afternoon tea, evening cocktails from 6-8pm, plus wireless high speed broadband internet access and personalised concierge services.
As per Mr. Pedersen, “We have clients who demand this type of suite, with the extraordinary range of facilities and services it offers.” The hotel’s Presidential Suite clients range from entertainment industry moguls and celebrities to foreign dignitaries and diplomats and top international business leaders. Accommodating up to 36 for seated dinners and 60 for cocktails; this is also one of the most exclusive venues in Hong Kong for intimate private events.
InterContinental Hong Kong appointed Lim Teo + Wilkes Design Works PTE LTD of Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Milan (www.ltwdesignworks.com) to design the Presidential Suite, which is the crowning jewel of the hotel’s US$100+ million enhancements to the hotel since acquiring it in June 2001 and making it the Asia Pacific flagship for InterContinental Hotels Group.
Designer HL Lim comments, “When designing InterContinental Hong Kong’s Presidential Suite, the goal was to maximize the spectacular panoramic views from every room in the suite. We wanted to create a sense of spaciousness with a contemporary yet warm and inviting interior, with Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong Island as the backdrop.” LTW Design Works was also commissioned to design the hotel’s two new specialty suites (The CEO Suite and Terrace Suite, both with large outdoor terraces and Jacuzzis overlooking Victoria Harbour) and to oversee the guest room renovations, which were the most extensive in the hotel’s history.
