The Hong Kong Ocean Park Marriott Hotel, a 471-room landmark urban green resort is now open. The property is committed to a sustainable future and reducing its environmental footprint and opens with several initiatives in place. These initiatives include the hotel façade design that features energy-saving components to keep the building cooler in summer. In addition, rainwater collection areas and vertical planting systems are found throughout the hotel. Also, the hotel will launch its own green education program for guests of all ages, as well as joining hands with Ocean Park to connect people with nature.

"Marriott Hotels is excited to open its latest hotel in a very special collaboration with the iconic Ocean Park Hong Kong and Lai Sun Group. The new destination resort offers a unique getaway experience in Hong Kong and is a perfect example of what Marriott means by traveling brilliantly," said Mike Fulkerson, vice president, Brand and Marketing Asia Pacific, Marriott International. "There's adventure at Ocean Park Hong Kong, one of Asia's leading conservation theme parks, and convenient access to Hong Kong's lesser explored green spaces as well as remarkable proximity to the city's shopping and business districts, broadening our guests' perspectives and experiences in this globally renowned city."

Designed by Aedas, Hong Kong Ocean Park Marriott Hotel is an homage to a modern urban green oasis comprising of three towers – The Pier Wing, Club Wing and Marina Wing. It offers 471 guest rooms and suites that capture the Modern Marriott ethos with streamlined interiors, expansive naturally lit spaces and ocean-inspired décor. Three types of Ocean Park-themed rooms are available at The Pier Wing and Marina Wing.

The Club Wing houses the executive M Club, an exclusive space where guests can work, enjoy a bite, recharge and connect.

The hotel showcases four restaurants and bars complete with alfresco areas offering amazing views over the hotel lagoon. These include The Pier Lounge and Bar for modern dining and cocktails; and Marina Kitchen, an all-day dining and international buffet. Meanwhile, guests can head to the Canton Bistro for Cantonese specialties and the Prohibition Grill House & Cocktail Bar to enjoy an American steakhouse concept. All dining outlets also serve WWF-certified sustainable seafood from approved suppliers.

This urban retreat features innovative spaces including the largest pillar-free ballroom, at nearly 13,000 square feet, on Hong Kong island. The resort offers extensive outdoor facilities and special access to Ocean Park for exclusive meeting options. After an eventful day of work or exploration, guests can refresh in the outdoor lagoon pool or rejuvenate in Hong Kong's first Harnn Heritage Spa or work out their stress in the fitness center.

While the hotel's location is perfectly situated for access to the city, it also offers convenient access for to Hong Kong's breathtaking hiking and jogging trails. These trails wind through some of Hong Kong's finest coastline and country parks, including Repulse Bay, the Aberdeen Reservoir and the challenging Dragon's Back Trail.
