Work & Play at EAST Hotels
Swire Hotels WHO WE ARE
Hello, and welcome to Swire Hotels.
For a little more than 10 years, we have set out to craft unscripted and authentic hospitality experiences for our guests, experiences that will remain memorable long after your stay. Our two brands, The House Collective and EAST, both offer exceptional service and an appreciation of aesthetics in unique, distinctive locations.
We are small but dynamic, personal and fun. But more than anything, we thrive on individuality and celebrate difference. It’s the source of our inspiration – from those whom we work with to those who stay with us.
We look forward to getting to know you more. I invite you to explore our website and don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Every House is its own story
The House Collective by Swire Hotels is a group of highly individual, luxury hotels made for seasoned travellers who seek a different, intimate and personalised experience. The Opposite House in Beijing, The Upper House in Hong Kong, The Temple House in Chengdu and The Middle House in Shanghai are uniquely imagined hotels, each with its own story to tell.
Where it all starts
Say hello to EAST, a modern-day lifestyle hotel bursting with energy and good vibes. Chic rooftop bars, happening co-working spaces, urban outdoor pools and colourful dinosaur sculptures everywhere, EAST is a breath of fresh air in the world of travel and work-life balance. Rejuvenate, recharge and make things happen at one of our business playgrounds in Hong Kong, Miami and Beijing. For an extended experience, visit EAST Residences.
