Benoy is proud to reveal its invitation as one of five international designers to submit proposals for the new Queen Elizabeth 2 (QE2) hotel scheme. The announcement that the iconic liner would be undergoing an extensive renovation to become a luxurious, floating, all-suite hotel was made by the Chairman of QE2 Shipping LLC this month.
The ‘QE2 New Life’ project will see the vessel sail to Asia later this year where the renovation will be undertaken to transform the cruise ship into a 300 suite hotel. The suites will range from 60sqm to 150sqm and also feature larger accommodations for longer stay residents. Once the shortlisted schemes are submitted later this year, the intention is for the final designs to be displayed on the ‘qe2hotels’ website where public opinion will be invited to choose the favoured hotel design.
