Maybourne’s three properties have become the latest London hotels to sign an agreement with China’s major domestic bankcard Union Pay to facilitate easier credit payment transactions from a growing number of guests from mainland China.
Maybourne has also announced its collaboration with two leading Asian designers in its latest projects at the Berkeley in Knightsbridge. Leading Hong Kong-based interior architect Andre Fu has created a ground breaking ‘super suite ’on the fourth floor of the hotel opening in July 2013.
Andre Fu is one of Asia’s leading young designers whose meteoric rise follows his design of Swire Hotels’ multi-award-winning flagship property
The Upper House in Hong Kong.
Meanwhile, Hong Kong-born, London-based interior architect Spencer Fung is behind the soon to re-launch rooftop Berkeley Health Club and Spa complete with new Bamford Haybarn Spa. Spencer Fung has established a name for himself with his firm’s distinctive designs for luxury clients such as Daylesford and Bamford.
