Niccolo Hotels, the new luxury hotel brand, is set to catapult into the limelight with the announcement of its exciting new flagship property in Hong Kong. The Murray, a Niccolo Hotel, Hong Kong, will open in October 2017, on Cotton Tree Drive in Central.


Besides being the first significant new luxury hotel to open in Hong Kong in several years, The
Murray bring new life to one of Hong Kong’s most iconic and historic buildings.

The tall white landmark structure, with its distinctive arches and unique recessed windows, was built
in 1969 and been awarded many accolades for its ground-breaking and energy-efficient design.

World-renowned architects Foster + Partners, whose works in Hong Kong include HSBC headquarters and the Hong Kong International Airport, have been engaged as designers for the project.

With its unique location in a stand-alone building positioned between the Central business district
and the green oasis of Hong Kong Park, the 336-room hotel will offer a sophisticated, urban chic
sanctuary in the heart of the city.

Among its unique features will be a stunning rooftop bar with some of the most breathtaking views
of the city. A series of signature restaurants are also in the works.

Seasoned British-born hotelier Duncan Palmer has been appointed as the hotel’s Managing Director,
and will bring his many years of experience with The Savoy, The Connaught, Mandarin Oriental and
Langham Hotels amongst others to create a truly world-class hotel for Hong Kong.

“I am quietly confident this will become the preferred hotel in Hong Kong for visiting dignitaries,
captains of industry and leaders in style. They will appreciate the sophisticated and international
standard of hospitality that the Niccolo brand delivers.” said Mr Palmer.

The first hotel under the brand, the stylish Niccolo Chengdu opened in April 2015 and has quickly
been recognised as the city’s leading centre for luxury accommodation, fine dining and events. For more information on this property, please contact your Insignia Personal Assistant.
