    About WM Hotel Interiors

    Perfectly nestled by the sea with breathtaking ocean views in Sai Kung, the Riviera of Hong Kong, the WM Hotel could possibly challenge some of the best resort hotels in Phuket and Bali. It features many ground-breaking designs. Starting with the stunning Hall of Arrival at the Lobby Natura where the hotel visitors do their check-ins, one immediately senses the beauty of nature through a palette of browns and bronzes against wood grain finishes and natural marble, onyx and a myriad of gentle curves. This Hall of Arrival is uninterrupted in its spatial continuity accentuated by the flowing ceiling of wood grain aluminium slats alluding to an abstract river floating in midair. Organic in form, large pieces of modern timber furniture sparsely fill the space in a Zen-like fashion with grace and harmony. Behind three glowing onyx reception desks, a special backdrop with countless bronze metallic plates shimmer, filling out an inverted arch framed by a classically fluted limestone wall. The arch as a leitmotif will reappear in the Pre-Function Area & Banquet Hall later on. The crowning glory is a unique display of the WM Hotel Logo floating above as partly inspired by the tiaras from beauty pageants. Incidentally, some of the events for the Miss Hong Kong 2021 Pageant was filmed at the WM Hotel last year.

    Getting to the Pre-Function Area on the lower levels, one has to travel through a circular atrium via escalators crisscrossing downwards. Arriving at the Pre-function Area of the Banquet Hall and Salons-like Function Rooms, one notices the multi-directional half-arch columns supporting a uniquely undulating ceiling with hexagonal patterns. Entering the Banquet Hall through a series of giant arches, one reaches a huge space with a sequence of sparkling organic chandeliers hanging from above as well as crystal wall sconces mounted between the grand arches. The other Function Rooms are treated as a set of luxury Salons adorned with gold leafed ceiling details and raw silk wall panels above limestone wainscot. Inside the spacious hotel suites, many details inspired by the beauty of nature can be further discovered and explored.

    Mr. Alexander Wong, Director & Founder of Alexander Wong Architects, reacts to the news, “I wish to thank International Property Awards for this great honour. Very special thanks to everyone at WM Hotel for their incredible support, including owners of WM Hotel, Mr. Raymond Chan, Ms. Meage Choy, Ms. Jenny Li of The Shaw Group, Mr. Benny Wong and every member of the Engineering Department at WM Hotel. Through our design philosophy to provide innovation, excitement & glamour for the WM Hotel without sacrificing functional needs, this Award is a wonderful confirmation of our Client’s vision for the Hotel in this unique location in Sai Kung. We are delighted to have our original design recognized by the judging panel and will continue to raise the bar with all our future design endeavours.”
