Dorsett Hospitality International, a dynamic player in Asia’s hospitality landscape, recently unveiled its latest jewel, the Dorsett Kai Tak, slated to welcome guests in August 2024.
Positioned as a luxury flagship, this establishment promises an unparalleled upscale experience, drawing inspiration from the serene elegance of cruises and superyachts.
Dorsett Hospitality International, a distinguished owner and operator based in Hong Kong, currently oversees an impressive portfolio of 53 properties across 23 cities. The imminent launch of Dorsett Kai Tak stands as a testament to the group’s growth, marking its 10th hotel in its home city.
Kai Tak: From Aviation Hub to Social Nexus
Historically, Kai Tak was Hong Kong’s inaugural international airport, serving as the gateway to the city. In its new avatar, Kai Tak has transformed into the epicentre of social activity in Hong Kong.
Positioned within the Kai Tak Sports Park, an eagerly anticipated sports facility, Dorsett Kai Tak is poised to become a symbol of luxury within this vibrant locale.
Dorsett Kai Tak boasts breathtaking views of Victoria Harbour, placing it in close proximity to Hong Kong’s 50,000-seat stadium, a hub for major sporting events and concerts.
With state-of-the-art sports facilities, shopping, and dining options, the hotel is conveniently located just 15-20 minutes from Hong Kong’s Central business district via the Shatin to Central link.
Immerse in Dreamy Marina Lifestyle
The 373-room flagship embraces the dreamy marina lifestyle and oceanic aesthetics of its location. Tailored for both leisure and business travellers, the luxurious suites offer pantry and light cooking facilities, with interconnecting options.
Two Presidential Suites, each featuring a private ocean-view terrace and barbeque facilities, exemplify the pinnacle of opulence. The Presidential Pool Suite adds a unique touch with its exclusive 10-metre lap pool.
Dorsett Kai Tak doesn’t just stop at accommodations; it is a haven of leisure. Facilities include a rooftop swimming pool with panoramic harbour views, a 100-square-metre fitness centre, and a double-height ceiling grand ballroom.
Culinary Excellence with a View
The culinary offerings at Dorsett Kai Tak are equally impressive. An all-day Spanish Sichuan restaurant, complemented by an outdoor garden and private rooms, caters to diverse palates. London’s renowned rooftop bar, Jin Bo Law, graces the 15th floor, adding a touch of international flair.
For cruise terminal arrivals, Dorsett Kai Tak ensures a smooth transition from sea to land, echoing the enchanting maritime atmosphere. In alignment with the Dorsett Cares initiative, the hotel proudly holds a BEAM Plus Gold certification from the Hong Kong Green Building Council, showcasing its commitment to eco-friendly practices.
Guests at Dorsett Kai Tak are spoilt for choice with retail, dining, and entertainment options at nearby shopping malls, including AIRSIDE, Mikiki, and the upcoming SOGO shopping mall, The Twins (opening in mid-2024). From high-end brands to trendy boutiques, the area offers a diverse array of experiences.
A Glimpse into the Future
Winnie Chiu JP, President and Executive Director of Dorsett Hospitality International, expresses her enthusiasm, stating, “Dorsett Kai Tak will set an example for all industries to step into the future with a greener approach.” The hotel aims not only to bring world-class events to Hong Kong but also to support the community’s well-being through innovation and sustainable practices.
Beyond Dorsett Kai Tak, the group has exciting plans on the horizon, including openings such as Dorsett Canary Wharf, Dorsett Brisbane, Dorsett Perth, and the much-anticipated Dao by Dorsett Hornsey Town Hall.
The latter represents the third unveiling of the brand’s innovative aparthotel concept, Dao by Dorsett, tailored to the evolving needs of the next generation of travellers.
In conclusion, Dorsett Kai Tak emerges as a beacon of luxury, seamlessly blending opulence, sustainability, and community engagement. Its strategic location within the vibrant Kai Tak Sports Park positions it as a pivotal player in Hong Kong’s hospitality scene, promising a transformative experience for every guest.
