Straddling the two lively districts of Causeway Bay and Wan Chai, for those in the know, The Hari Hong Kong is set to become the next destination hotel. The beauty and elegance of The Hari London are introduced to this property and it delves into the vitality and dynamism of bustling Hong Kong.
Rory Slater will oversee the hotel’s activities as General Manager at The Hari Hong Kong with over 20 years of experience in luxury hospitality. “We are very excited to join the ranks of the luxury hotel brands of Hong Kong and look forward to welcoming our first guests in December,” he says.
The Hari is renowned for its relaxed sense of style, punctuated with a touch of wit in its 210 guest quarters, including three rooftop suites and dining outlets, which are completely displayed. Tara Bernerd, the founder of Tara Bernerd & Partners, a leading international interior architecture and design practice based in London, was named by Dr. Harilela.
The guestrooms are carefully designed to maximise the space by opening up the bathrooms and wardrobes, while a system of antique-brass Crittal doors enables the bathrooms to be closed off when necessary.
In the traditional King Rooms and Twin Rooms, a dramatic open plan is employed, enabling every room to have a two-seater sofa. Corner Rooms are similarly designed with an open layout and the addition of a dressing room. Corner Rooms offer views of the buzzing Causeway Bay district, while Premium Corner Rooms overlook Wan Chai and Admiralty.
Rooftop suites, which include the opulent The Hari Suite, are at once traditional and timeless. Each suite houses a five-piece bathroom, a separate sitting room and its own private terrace.
The Italian restaurant, Lucciola Restaurant & Bar, is a bastion of old-world glamour and a contemporary ode to heritage flavours, delivering beloved classics with a modern twist. to encapsulate the spirit of Italy, verve and drama are introduced into the space with timber-lined walls, contrasted by one long gallery wall finished in Tadelakt polished plaster.
The Japanese restaurant, Zoku Restaurant & Terrace, located one floor above, presents a refreshing take on Japanese cuisine focused on quality and ingenuity split into a lounge-style area and a dining area. Meanwhile, the terrace bar is designed to host from day through the late evening.
