Hong Kong – Alva Hotel by Royal is scheduled for opening in late 2019 as part of the Royal portfolio under Sun Hung Kai Properties Hotels. 

Located in Shatin neighbourhood, within an eight-minute walking distance from Shek Mun MTR station, the hotel is set to instigate a spirit of discovery, echoing the modern philosophies of its namesake, Thomas Alva Edison. Also, its welcoming and friendly atmosphere reflect the German meaning of the name Alva: ‘friend.’ 

The hotel’s façade and landscape is designed as an oasis in the city by Japanese architectural firm, Nikken Sekkei. Also inspired by the surrounding lush greenery, its interiors designed Norman Chan - renowned local interior designer and founder of BTR Workshop - boast spacious sunlit lobby, amplified by the fresh and modern decoration, with the huge trellis of growing foliage and a range of plants decorated throughout the area.

The hotel offers 618 guestrooms, including 70 apartments, fitted with guest-centric technology and modern amenities.  Facilities include a fitness centre, rooftop thermostatic swimming pool, four food and beverage options – Mizutani Japanese restaurant, Yat Heen Cantonese restaurant, PitStop for healthy drinks and snacks, and Alva House all-day dining restaurant.

Alva Hotel’s Fresh, dynamic and smart concept is featured in its seamless guest experience, with self-check-in kiosks in the lobby and a mobile application that allows for online bookings and pre-arrival check-in. Guests can also use their mobile key to access guestrooms. 

An in-room tablet device enables guests to control their immediate surroundings, request the help of the hotel staff and housekeeping services; make reservations at hotel restaurants and bars, as well as browse hotel activities and major events taking place in Shatin and around Hong Kong. Its guest programme includes suggested hiking and cycling trails around historically rich areas, such as The Old House at Wong Uk Village and the Ten Thousand Buddha Monastery.
