Taiwan: Luxury hotel group Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts and developer Yuan Lih Construction Co., Ltd., will open a 31-storey hotel in the centre of Taipei.
Four Seasons Hotel Taipei will be located in the Xinyi District, opposite the Taipei 101 skyscraper. Designed by RSHP, the hotel will feature 260 rooms, a high-end Chinese restaurant, two additional restaurants, a bar and pool bar, and a lobby lounge.
Additional amenities include an executive club lounge, fitness centre with an outdoor pool and spa, a grand and junior ballroom, along with a ground level garden also available for meetings and events.
“Taipei has long been a target destination for Four Seasons as we look to expand our presence in Asia’s most important cities,” said Bart Carnahan, president of global business development and portfolio management at Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts.
“We are tremendously excited to announce our upcoming hotel in Taipei together with our partners at Yuan Lih Construction Co., Ltd. This project will be a destination of choice in Taipei for both locals and travellers, combining thoughtful design, world-class restaurants and bars, and of course personalised service by incredible Four Seasons people,” Carnahan added.
Lin Ming-Hsiung, president of Yuan Lih Construction Co., Ltd., said: “We are focused on creating projects that maximise land value while creating exceptional architectural landmarks, and we look forward to achieving these goals again with a new state-of-the-art building in Taipei. We are proud to be opening a top international landmark hotel for Taiwan and are very pleased to do so in partnership with Four Seasons – one of the world’s leading luxury hospitality brands.”
Ivan Harbour, senior design partner, RSHP, said: “We are excited to collaborate with Yuan Lih and Four Seasons on this exceptional project. Through three significant outward facing spatial gestures across its elevation, the hotel will embrace the immediate public realm at street level, the rapidly growing Xinyi district at mid-level and Taipei’s iconic mountain setting at its peak, together creating a landmark building that is very much of its place.
“With a focus on guest experience and wellbeing, the team has carefully orchestrated the interactions between the hotel and its surroundings. Every journey and every space will have its own moment.”
