Founded in North America, the owner-operated hotel is recognised for its style-conscious and tech-savvy metropolitan vibes with a leaning towards elegance in a space curated with business travellers in mind.
Retaining the Leading Hospitality & Hotel Management honour for the sixth consecutive year, the 30-year-old company continues to set its sights high on the global market, operating a versatile range of hotel assets gearing towards globetrotting dignitaries who shun the cookie-cutter hospitality experience in favour of sensational stays.
The launch of Hotel LKF by Rhombus in 2006 marked the beginning of the group’s significant expansion spree into Greater China, adding four hospitality assets to its roster over the past decade.
Today, Rhombus represents some of the crème de la crème of business and boutique hotels in town, including Hotel LKF, Hotel Panorama, Hotel Pennington, and Hotel Bonaparte in Hong Kong, and Rhombus Park Aura Chengdu Hotel in China. Amongst them, Hotel Panorama and Hotel LKF, completed in 2008 and 2006 respectively, are two rising stars.
Hotel Panorama by Rhombus
Prominently situated in the heart of the bustling entertainment and retail hub of Tsim Sha Tsui, Hotel Panorama by Rhombus stands out from the bulk of star-studded hotels in a distinctive geometric edifice that takes pride in its close proximity to a dynamic range of shopping destinations, including K11 Art Mall, iSQUARE, DFS Galleria, and The ONE.
But as you transport to the Sky Garden on the rooftop, you are taken away from the freneticism into a realm of serenity and elegance on the 40th floor with an incredible panorama overlooking the Victoria Harbour. Featuring 324 rooms with 12 suites themed in silver, gold, and platinum, the four-star business hotel goes beyond standard facilities, with a fitness centre and complimentary smartphone in each room, babysitting services, and in-room amenities such as a baby cot, bathtub, and stroller.
Hotel Panorama by Rhombus is also known for its culinary offerings, most prominently the award-winning AVA Restaurant Slash Bar, a European fusion eatery that has become a restaurant to be reckoned with, amongst its two other eateries — Café Express and Sweet Corner. Sitting high on the 38th floor, AVA offers unimpeded views over the harbour with fantastic food.
Facilities aside, corporate social responsibility is also a considerable part of Panorama’s ethos. The hotel has stepped up its CSR efforts in recent years with an undertaking consisting of three pillars — “Caring for the community,” “Caring for the environment,” and “Caring for the employees.”
The past few years has seen the hotel take part in environmental protection by donating surplus food to low-income residents via the charity Foodlink to reduce food wastage starting in 2011, donating used soaps to Soap Cycling since 2013, as well as participating in the renowned Earth Hour by WWF starting 2013.
Its pledge to care for the community has also seen Rhombus’ employees volunteer in meal box packaging for the elderly via St. James’ Settlement since 2014.
Hotel LKF by Rhombus
Looming above the party hotspot at Lan Kwai Fong, Hotel LKF by Rhombus, on 33 Wyndham Street, is a five-star boutique hotel outfitted with 95 guest rooms ranging in size from 500 to 950 square feet, a gym, a dedicated business centre, stunning metro views, and a plethora of bars and restaurants, retail stores, and galleries on the doorstep.
The 30-storey building is a magnet for partygoers as it houses the restaurant/bar Azure for guests to pamper themselves with guilt-free drinks at night. Its premium deluxe rooms and suites have a bewildering range of services and facilities on offer, including 42-inch LCD TVs, mini-bars, foot massage machines, and four-in-one business assistants to make sure business travellers can unwind whilst staying connected with work on-the-go.
To cater to today’s digitally savvy travellers, the group has stepped up its digital efforts in 2016 with the launch of a free smartphone service for Hotel LKF by Rhombus, amongst all the Rhombus brands, enabling unlimited local and international calls as well as 3G mobile internet access for each room. The gadgets are also equipped with digital city guides and interactive maps to enhance the personalised travelling experience for guests.
Charmed by a modern chic interior design with an elegant accent, the hospitality abode is perfect for city slickers to catch a breath of fresh air and enjoy a personalised five-star hotel service. If you ever leave the club that is.
