(28/02/23) A favourite with travellers from around the world since it first opened in 1980, The Regent Hong Kong is now once again accepting room reservations following a transformation by world-renowned architect and design visionary, Chi Wing Lo.
With over 30 years of experience in architecture and design across the United States, Greece and Italy, Lo brought his unique blend of artisan craftsmanship and understated elegance to his first hotel project, which represents not only a homecoming for the hotel but also the designer as he returns to his roots.
Located on the edge of Victoria Harbour, seemingly a world away from the crowded streets of Tsim Sha Tsui, The Regent Hong Kong has long been popular with travellers, whether they are in the vibrant city for business, leisure or both.
Classic Harbourview Room at The Regent Hong Kong
Being able to look out over the water to Hong Kong Island on the other side from the comfort of your own room, or from the Lobby Lounge or one of the many restaurants and event spaces, provides memories that stay with you forever.
“A beautiful view without a special vantage is merely a postcard anyone can buy,” Lo said. “A view without a frame is simply a view that has not passed through the eyes’ lens.”
When it comes to the guestrooms, Lo’s design philosophy was centered around the breathtaking ‘Framed Views’ of the harbour.
The open, spacious layout, combined with soft-tone carpets, patterned mirror, rhythmic vaulted ceiling, and fine craftsmanship in wood, leather, fabric, glass and stone creates a world of peace and quiet. The window-front daybed is a place of inspiration and relaxation.
In select harbourview rooms, a sliding door opens to reveal the spectacular view of the harbour from the curved, free-standing soaking tub. In others, an unique moongate design of Nero African granite leads to a one-of-a-kind bath and shower experience.
The curtainless shower provides a sense of spaciousness and the Axor overhead showerhead with rain, rain flow and mono modes, is designed to revitalize and invigorate.
“My vision for the hotel was to provide a sanctuary rather than simply a place to stay,” said Lo. “I wanted my design to embody the spirit of The Regent and provide a sense of peace, serenity, and balance amidst the bustling metropolis.”
Room reservations are available for stays from March onwards via the hotel’s website, IHG One Rewards App and Wechat Mini-program.
