With a passion for developing unique and inspiring properties, Philip Morais launched CHI Residences in 2007. His vision was to create a luxury home away from home for chic and savvy travellers. Applying over three decades of experience in the hospitality and property development industries, he sought to take serviced accommodation to a new level, providing all the luxury and service of a five-star hotel with inspired design and personal touches that provide CHI’s guests with their own unique urban retreat.
The first property under the CHI Residences brand was in West Kowloon, providing a relaxing oasis right in the heart of one of Hong Kong’s most exciting urban areas. Focusing on every aspect of a guests’ needs, even the air quality was considered and an air purifier, which filters oxygen was installed in each apartment, a finishing touch that has subsequently become a signature feature in all CHI Residences' Hong Kong properties. Drawing on the success of this property, CHI has launched further serviced accommodation in Hong Kong and Shanghai, and a five star dive resort in Taveuni, Fiji - Garden Island Resort, which all provide its guests with a luxury home away from home.
