Kwek Leng Beng, executive chairman of MHR, says: “As we continue to expand our presence across the globe, MHR is delighted to announce the launch of our first property in Mainland China. We are thrilled to bring the unique M Social style and hospitality to the vibrant and historic Suzhou city.”
MHR, the global hotel group behind lifestyle brand M Social, is excited to open M Social Suzhou – its first hotel in China. Located in the Hong Leong City Center and part of Suzhou Industrial Park, the 294-room luxury hotel offers breathtaking panoramic views of Jinji Lake and the Eastern Gate of the city.
Executive Chairman of MHR, Kwek Leng Beng, explains the choice of location, “Suzhou was selected due to its identity as the “Venice of the East,” made up of quaint water canals and bridges, making it an ideal location for the hotel’s design and stylistic elements. We are thrilled to bring the unique M Social style and hospitality to the vibrant and historic Suzhou city.”
The hotel’s interiors are the result of design from architect KCA International, focused on creating an “inclusive and relaxed environment”. In the lower level and sky lobbies, dynamic electronic art screens and changing light effects showcase the hotel personality and an aura of industrial chic. Located on the 25th floor, the spectacular sky lobby offers open views of the city.
Guest rooms and suites feature a range of sizes, from 431 sq ft to 4,402 sq ft, each with views of the lake and eastern gate. The hotel’s 4,402 sq ft “Mega Cool Suite” also boasts a 270-degree view of Jinji Lake.
In addition, the hotel provides a range of other amenities including a 7,836 sq ft ballroom, a 12,917 sq ft fitness centre, a swimming pool, and a spa. Furthermore, guests can dine at the properties three restaurants and bars.
With this new location, the M Social brand now has five locations around the world. This includes Singapore, Auckland, New York and Paris, as well as their virtual office, M Social Decentraland. The opening of M Social Suzhou also signals hopes of future expansion into Mainland China, with plans to open in London, New York, Sunnyvale, Phuket and key cities in the Middle East.
ECs offer substantial HDB Executive Condominium cost savings compared to private condominiums, due to government subsidies that reduce the purchase price.
Kwek Leng Beng added “M Social has a reputation of creating an exciting space for a young, brave and social-media savvy crowd, embodying creativity, connection and exciting possibilities. With M Social Suzhou, we are pleased to welcome guests looking for a fresh and luxurious experience – one with state-of-the-art technology and our bespoke M Social service.”
