The Silveri - 33 rd MGallery in Asia

- redefines unique high-end

The MGallery by Sofitel collection is set to make

its debut in Hong Kong this year with The Silveri,

set to open in the second half of 2019.

The new hotel will be the 33rd MGallery by Sofitel in

Asia, and will be part of the Citygate project in the

Tung Chung district of Lantau Island, where it will enjoy

expanded direct connections to the city centre and Hong

Kong international airport, which in a big plus for business

travellers, is only a few minutes away.

“We are delighted to be bringing Accor’s highly acclaimed

MGallery by Sofitel brand to Hong Kong for the first time,

creating a stylish new hotel which will be memorable,

exciting and unique – and disrupt conventional luxury

hospitality in the city”, said Nicholas Cullum, Cluster

General Manager of The Silveri MGallery by Sofitel and

Novotel Citygate.

Designed to mimic a contemporary Manor House, the

hotel will sit in the foothills of Lantau and aim for elegant

luxury with a “comfortable, refined residential feel”.

The interiors will lean heavily towards silver accents as a

reminder of the island’s heritage, while the natural tones

of wood and leather will be contrasted alongside natural

greenery and bodies of water
