Father-son duo William and Justin Ma are readying to open a new luxury hotel in Wong Chuk Hang this month

Justin Ma, founder and CEO of Yulan Group Limited, and his father, William Ma, chairman of Tai Sang Land Development are launching a new hotel, the Arca, in Wong Chuk Hang this month. Traditionally an industrial district, Wong Chuk Hang today has evolved into one of Hong Kong’s coolest up-and-coming neighbourhoods brimming with a mix of great restaurants, unique art galleries and event spaces, which marks it out as a prime location for the duo’s ambitious project. 

Scheduled to open in mid-May, the property is envisioned by reputed local design studio, Design Eight Five Two (DEFT), and driven by the ethos of putting meticulous attention to detail with a sleek take on contemporary luxury, which is also expected to be Yulan Group’s second hotel project after the launch of boutique hotel Figo in Sheung Wan in 2020.

Conveniently located in close proximity to the Wong Chuk Hang MTR station, the Arca, which occupies 194,278 square feet, is designed with sophisticated travellers in mind. Boasting a unique aesthetic that melds the best of industrial style and modern touches, the hotel is imbued with contrasting colour palettes and textures as reflected in features such as charcoal grey bricks, glazed ceramic details and copper detailing. 

In addition to offering 187 guest rooms and suites complete with tastefully appointed interiors and modern amenities, the hotel also features a slew of top-notch facilities, including a spacious rooftop infinity pool adorned with a striking mural by #creativehustlers—one of Hong Kong’s most celebrated street artists; a beautiful dining space with an outdoor terrace, Arca Society, which serves up Asian and Western cuisines; a rooftop bar located near the pool; as well as a spacious multi-functional event space that can accommodate up to 888 guests for business meetings and large group celebrations. 

The Acra is set to cater to different travel interests, ranging from solo travellers to groups of friends and families, which also welcomes guests to visit the hotel with their furry friends for a memorable stay with thoughtful amenities and services provided.
