A refreshingly unconventional new hotel in the heart of the Hung Hom area of Hong Kong has joined the global Worldhotels network. Offering its unique mix of contemporary design, personalised technologies, and dedicated services, Hotel sávrepresents a new direction in luxury accommodation.
Journey of colour
Premised on the idea that colour is a language of the soul, the interior design of Hotel sávemploys vibrant hues that create distinctive ambience while soothing and revitalising heart and soul.
The “Colour Journey” concept of the hotel which extends into the 388 guest rooms and suites stimulates the senses with brilliant palettes of orange, red, yellow, pink, green, purple and blue. Adding variety to the chromatic voyage are spectacular window views of Hong Kong’s sparkling Victoria Harbour, bustling streets and scintillating skyline – sights that can also be enjoyed in some rooms from the perch of a private balcony.
Personalised technology services
Guests at Hotel sáv can choose to access their rooms by using either their mobile phone or a standard key card. Using mobile phone as a key allows one to take advantage of a seamless check-in, a service that saves time for guests by allowing them to skip check-in procedures entirely.
Further enriching the sáv experience is a complimentary smartphone that the hotel offers to each guest for the duration of their stay. Loaded with interactive maps, a city guide and other information that visitors to Hong Kong will find especially useful, the handy smartphone comes with unlimited 3G Internet access as well as unlimited local and international calling to select countries and areas.
Other conveniences at Hotel sáv include 24-hour concierge service, a 24-hour gym, airport limousine pick-up, and hotel shuttle service to major nearby attractions.
Unique dining and entertainment
Inspired by global tastes and artists’ work spaces is Hotel sáv’s all-day dining restaurant, Palette, where guests can savour a diverse buffet line and indulge in a dining experience that perfectly blends art, food and well-being.
The Sonic Gardenoffers a musical immersion experience unlike anything else in Hong Kong, making it the highly sought-after spot for a private event or simply for unwinding with friends. The beautiful soundscapes here are enjoyed on an outdoor terrace and emanate from a state-of-the-art SONUS stereo sound system by Architettura Sonora, a leading provider of professional acoustic solutions that are used in famous gardens across Europe and favoured by luminaries of the music world such as Andrea Bocelli.
Guests seeking evening fun have many options, starting with the vibrant atmosphere of Amplitude, Hotel sáv’s stylish bar that offers an extensive drinks list. The shopping arcades and lively street scenes of Mong Kok and Tsim Sha Tsui are just a hop away via the subway, and the Hong Kong Coliseum with its high-profile concerts and shows is also close to the hotel.
Service philosophy rooted in Chinese culture
Service at Hotel sáv is inspired by a famous Chinese poetic essay written nearly 2,000 years ago during the Eastern Han dynasty that tells how commitment and purpose build a harmonious environment. The name “sáv” is a romanisation of one Chinese character in the essay,”逸”, which means “comfort” or “ease”. This character featured in the line “为之者劳, 居之者逸” implies that guest comfort is a product of hard work and dedication.
The hotel is also firmly committed to doing what is right for the environment. Its seamless check-in service, for example, was introduced in part to minimise use of paper, and this goal is also furthered by hotel directories that guests can view on their in-room TV screens.
“Hotel sáv represents the arrival of a new generation of hospitality style in the Kowloon market,” said Edwin Chuang, CEO & Founder of sáv Hospitality Limited. “The hotel serves as our new flagship property, and its opening is an important milestone in the history of our company and that of our esteemed parent firm Chuang’s Consortium International Limited, an investment holding company founded in Hong Kong in 1970.”
“Our team is delighted to have Hotel sáv join the Worldhotels family,” stated Roland Jegge, Worldhotels Executive Vice President Asia Pacific. “The brand-new hotel creates a refreshing and innovative approach to luxury accommodation, and it is doing so with a confidence that inspires admiration. We look forward to delivering Worldhotels’ 45-year record of excellence in global sales and marketing strategies, as well as state-of-the-art distribution and technology services.”
