Chinachem's newest hotel opens to the public 

Oficially opened for business in April 2010, L'Hotel Island South is the newest member of the Chinachem L'Hotel Group. Located at Wong Chuck Hang in an industrial zone on the south side of Hong Kong Island, it is close to the famous Ocean Park, the sandy beach at Repulse Bay and the fishing village named Aberdeen. Shopping is a short journey away at bustling Causeway Bay and Central.

The new 39-storey hotel provides 432 comfortable contemporary guest rooms. The 13 suites and 4 grand terrace suites all have panoramic sea views. The chic, cool interior design creates a fresh and vibrant feel. The hotel facilities include a main lobby lounge, the LIS restaurant, a small gym, three function rooms and an outdoor swimming pool.

Constructed on a narrow site with restricted access next to industrial neighbours, the project provided many challenges in meeting the client brief. To the rear is a tranquil green mountain view. To the front there is a busy road with an elevated highway above and low rise industrial buildings opposite. Vehicular access to the hotel is from the rear but a convienient pedestrian access from the front is provided.

To make best use of the levels,the entrance forecourt, the restaurant and the reception lobby all face the elevated highway and industrial buildings telling passersby via the glazed frontage: 'this is new, contributing something different to the neighbourhood'.

The hotel rooms are orientated to the mountain and sea views with the windows following the patterns and rhythms of the nearby industrial units. A reuse / recycle theme is used for the major interior artwork. In the short time L'Hotel Island South has been open it has become a very popular venue enhancing the neighbourhood.
