Further legitimising the authority of Hung Hom as one of the city’s more unexpected hotel hubs is the opening of Hotel sáv. Representing a new approach to modern luxury, the colourful new addition to the Worldwide Hotels portfolio offers comfortable, contemporary design, personalised technologies and dedicated services.
The hotel’s “colour journey” philosophy is based on the premise that colour is a language of the soul, and extends to all 388 guest rooms and suites in the form of a palette of bold yet soothing hues. Oranges, reds, purples, greens, pinks, yellows and blues abound, giving each space a distinct ambience. Spectacular harbour views add even more depth to the chromatic experience.
Hotel sáv is keeping up to date with the latest tech trends, too — each room comes with a complimentary smartphone, which is loaded with interactive maps, a city guide, unlimited 3G access and unlimited local and international calls (to select countries and areas). You can also use your mobile phone to access your room — and if you choose to do so, you can actually skip check-in procedures entirely, which can be pretty handy after a long flight, not to mention environmentally friendly.
F&B options at the new hotel include all-day international buffet Palette, as well as stylish and vibrant bar Amplitude. For something different, the Sonic Garden offers a musical immersion experience, the likes of which are unparalleled in Hong Kong. Perfect for a private event or really unwinding with buddies, the outdoor terrace is imbued with luscious soundscapes from a state of the art SONUS stereo sound system by Architecture Sonora.
Service at the Hotel sáv has its roots firmly entrenched in the local — inspired by a famous Chinese poem scribed during the Eastern Han dynasty which tells of commitment and purpose building a harmonious environment, the name “sáv” is a romanisation of one of the poem’s characters, and represents comfort or ease.
