I particularly like to keep up to date with new luxury hotel launches and openings. The Langham Hospitality Group is introducing a whole new brand of luxury global hotels: Cordis Hotels and Resorts. Cordis aptly derives its name from the Latin term meaning “heart.” The holistic concept focuses on the core pillars of intuitive service, connectivity, sophistication and a sense of community.
Introducing the brand, Langham Hospitality Group Chief Executive Officer Robert Warman said: “Building on the successes of Langham Hotels and Resorts, we saw the need to create a collection of international upscale hotels and resorts that will deliver what our guests desire: personalised and efficient services, seamless technology, and authentic experiences in the best locations around the world. Each Cordis hotel will be individual in style, architecture and design, all of which will be reflective of its location and culture, and tailored to the requirements of our guests, from the corporate travellers to honeymooners to multi-generational families.
He continues, “Ultimately, it’s all about the devotion to our guests’ wellbeing during their stay with us. That will be interpreted through our service values and special offerings such as expansive meeting facilities, exciting restaurant social concepts, comprehensive kids’ programs, and tailored neighbourhood excursions.”
Cordis Hong Kong, is the first Cordis hotel to open and is due to welcome its first guests in May 2015 with vibrant, modern, and family-friendly facilities and amenities.
The Cordis portfolio will include new built designs, resorts and contemporary residences. According to Warman, the brand will be developed through a combination of new-build and conversion projects in key cities in Asia and North America. Cordis has already signed management agreements and letters of intent to open eight hotels in seven cities within the next three years; apart from the Hong Kong hotel, the portfolio will include five hotels in China, and one each in Bali (Indonesia, see photo above) Colombo (Sri Lanka.) Other cities targeted for future Cordis hotels include London, New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Orlando, San Francisco, Dubai, Singapore, and Bangkok.
Cordis hotels will complement the current Langham portfolio which includes one of my all time favourite hotels, The Langham London, and I for one am excited about the new London, Miami and Orlando hotels in particular, the latter resort being sorely short of luxury hotels. Lots to look forward to!
