HONG KONG —
Ritz-Carlton has enhanced the experience of its Club and Suite level guests in Asia by giving them access to a series of curated chauffeur-driven experiences.
Each Ritz-Carlton property in Asia now offers a complimentary limousine service for short trips or transfers within the environs of the city exclusively for the use of guests selecting to stay at Club level or a Suite.
Amongst the curated experiences in the Inspiring Discoveries collection that highlight The Ritz-Carlton Club’s city transfer service are concierge-tailored short city tours or private visits to key cultural highlights in each city. These include limousine transfers to Forbidden City or a secret tour of the hutongs in Beijing, a private tour of Seoul and a visit to the Meiji Shrine in Tokyo.
Other specially-selected experiences on offer include access to local museums and landmarks in the destination where there is a Ritz-Carlton so even if time is limited, a guest can still take home a cultural memory.
Victor Clavell, Vice President – Asia for The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, said, “The Club and Suite experience at The Ritz-Carlton offers an elevated level of service that allows us to create even more touches that will stay with the guest for life. Each of our properties across Asia has taken this challenge to heart - curating, creating and investing in local and culturally-enriching experiences that speak to the guest emotionally. The local limousine service is an example of how we recognize and anticipate the needs of our guests today as part of our service legacy. Each of our guests may not have a lot of time in the destination and our elevated Club and Suite experience allows them to invest a little time to go home with an authentic story to tell.”
Club and Suite guests are escorted directly to their rooms and privately checked-in. Each guest in residence receives personalized stationery on high quality letterhead in gold lettering. One of the best-kept secret to guests ‘in the know’ reserving Club and Suite accommodation is the traditional afternoon tea presented with compliments in The Ritz-Carlton Club Lounge. Layered on a three-tiered stand complete with scones, sandwiches and at least five specially-selected teas, the afternoon tea allows a moment of sumptuous indulgence while enjoying the privileged atmosphere of the lounge.
