InterContinental Hong Kong is gearing up for its biggest renovation in 30 years; the hotel will close its doors April 20, before reopening as Regent Hong Kong in 2022. The transformation will position the hotel as one of the world’s most iconic, spanning all guestrooms, suites, bathrooms, public areas, restaurants, event venues and the façade.

 

Hong Kong-born Chi Wing Lo has been named the architect/designer, and Yan Toh Heen, the hotel’s 1-Michelin-starred Cantonese restaurant, will remain open throughout the renovation. InterContinental Hong Kong colleagues will be supported with opportunities within IHG, and given the opportunity to re-join when the hotel re-opens.

 

The transformation will mark a return to the hotel’s roots. The 503-room hotel opened in 1980 as Regent Hong Kong, before operating under the InterContinental brand since 2001. It’s famous for its panoramic views of Hong Kong.

 

“On behalf of the owning companies, we are committed to returning the property back to its glory days as one of the most prestigious hotels in the world. Following this exciting transformation and rebranding, the hotel will once again become an iconic flagship property for Regent Hotels & Resorts and a jewel of Hong Kong,” said Goodwin Gaw, chairman and managing principal, Gaw Capital Partners, the company that led the acquisition of the hotel in 2015 on behalf of a consortium of investors.
