How It All Began
As the world’s leading small luxury hotel group, The Peninsula Hotels has a proud heritage as Asia’s oldest hotel company, which first started in Hong Kong in 1866.
In 1880, two brothers from Baghdad, Ellis and Elly Kadoorie, arrived in Shanghai, marking the beginning of a remarkable family business. They bought their first shares in the company in 1890, and The Kadoories are still at the helm today as majority shareholders of one of the world’s finest small luxury hotel groups and China’s first luxury hospitality brand, with an unmatched heritage dating back to the 19th century.
An Industry Leader
Developed exclusively in-house, The Peninsula technology elevates the guest experience to new levels, with the latest innovation being the entire in-room environment available in 11 languages. The Peninsula Hotels has become a pioneer and industry leader in the research and development of in-room technology since the founding of its Research & Technology Department in 1985.
Building on its reputation as a purveyor of timeless luxury, The Peninsula Hotels is as committed to defining the future of luxury as it has been to preserving its magnificent heritage of the past.
