During the reform period of China’s development, many patriotic Chinese returned to their motherland from overseas with determination to the country’s reconstruction. In 1984, with the strong support of the Xiamen Municipal Government, the Hong Leong International (Hong Kong) Company Limited collaborated with the Xiamen Tourism Group Cooperation to establish the joint-venture company Harbour View Hotel Company Limited. The construction of the hotel proceeded rapidly. Mr. Guo Fang Feng, the Founder of Hong Leong Group, decided to choose Qing Mu Shan as the hotel site. In 1985, the hotel pre-construction office appointed the City Development Company of Singapore to fully manage the hotel construction project. The groundbreaking ceremony was held on 31st January 1986, and the hotel building was completed at the end of 1991. The hotel opened up for initial service in January 1992, later opening fully to the public on June 5th. The hotel construction has an area of 34,000 square meters, stands 90 meters tall and provides 22 floors of guest accommodation.
The hotel was designed by internationally renowned architect Mr. Alfred Wong Kuang Guo of the Singapore Alfred Wong Partnership and the Chinese Architectural Institute. The hotel building embodies a representation of Singapore’s hospitality symbol, The Merlion, reflecting the hotel’s central interest in serving its clients. The building’s exterior is shaped like a sail to indicate the city’s coastal characteristics. The hotel is rated as one of the "Top Ten Architectural Achievements” in Fujian Province as well as in Xiamen City.
