In Hong Kong, a city drowning in avant-garde opulence, there is only one hotel that everyone knows: the Peninsula. The landmark hotel, which dates back to the region’s colonial British roots, is a symbol of the area’s rich past, famously swanked by a fleet of 14 Rolls Royces painted “Peninsula green.” It’s also the only hotel in the city to have its own private helipad and helicopter. Plush carpeting and touches of Hong Kong’s colonial past decorate the regal lobby and its 300 intimate guestrooms, each built with visitors’ privacy in mind (think one-stop-shop panels that control everything from the temperature to the television screen). The Pensinsula is known for its impeccable service, and an excellent concierge is on hand (and on first name terms) for your every need, whether it’s providing a special van for your shopping jaunts or a helicopter champagne brunch as you cruise the harbor sky. While Hong Kong may be one of the world’s gastronomic capitals, the Peninsula’s restaurants may make leaving the hotel for food redundant. Famous Gaddi’s serves up notable French dishes, Spring Moon is known for its Cantonese cuisine, and Felix, designed by Philippe Starck, dishes out European plates alongside views of the harbor from its 28th floor perch. It’s little wonder you’ll feel on top of the world here.
In the Area
Hong Kong Harbor is a playground all its own, but you need never leave the hotel. Enjoy some dancing and live music in the basement. Evocative of 1930s Shanghai, the hidden Salon de Ning lounge is sure to indulge all your senses. Scones, jam and clotted cream – it’s a tradition that stems back to Hong Kong’s colonial British roots. While many options have sprung up around the city, it originated with the Peninsula’s famous afternoon tea. Hotel guests can skip the long waits in line by booking ahead. probably no better other place to do it than the International Finance Center, Hong Kong’s second-highest building consisting of two full, imposing towers of consumerism. And, for a respite away from the hustle and bustle, take a day excursion to airy Lamma Island and dine on fresh seafood from Lamcombe Seafood Restaurant, which even drew Anthony Bourdain’s praise.
How to Get There
This was our second visit to Hong Kong and the Peninsula and we were not disappointed. From our transfer at the cruise terminal to arrival in our suite that was available at 10:00 a.m. we knew we would enjoy this 3 night stay.
Our suite was large and well appointed. So beautifully hi-tech with even a phone to call anywhere in the world at no extra charge. Housekeeping maintained the suite within minutes of us leaving for breakfast.
The breakfast buffet was outstanding with both Asian and Western offerings.
The Bar is a small bar room with a great piano player/singer Jimmy. We enjoyed cocktails with nice bar staff, before dinner every night listening to the talented Jimmy.
The Peninsula brand never disappoints. If traveling to Hong Kong it's the only place to stay.
Staff and facilities A1. The hotel boasts a fleet of 14 Rolls Royce Phantom cars, painted in the hotels colours. The location couldn't be better. Easy walk to get a ferry. Restaurants first class but you need to book. The Chinese and Japanese restaurants are wonderful.
Stayed there many times very nice!!!!
World class excellent service great experience strongly recommend.
Looking forward for more stays in the future children loved it.
Had a pick up and drop to and from the airport no other hotels have such service
This was my first ever solo trip overseas. So I decided to choose a city I had visited several times with my husband and that I felt relatively comfortable in. Then a hotel, well if you have been lucky enough to stay at the Peninsula once you really do look forward to a return visit. I booked a suite and it was wonderful. Every member of staff that I spoke to about anything was interested in helping with whatever I had asked about. The room service people, the maid, the turndown service, reception, concierge, everyone was polite and impeccably well mannered. The rooms were amazing the carpet, the decorations, the fruit bowl, the bed! It was a gadget lovers paradise, curtains lighting, temperature control all automated on iPads as well as pads on the walls. Don't bother taking an adaptor, each bedside table has a charging station.
The mini driver that took me to the Jade Markets was very helpful. I had left my watch charger at home, which was not the smartest thing to do, so I asked if he knew where I could get a charger. Behind the hotel there was a Garmin shop, I got a new charger.
In my opinion there were no flaws in my time there, which was four nights. I was pleasantly pampered.
Stunning. All aspects of this magnificent hotel are exquisite. From the moment I walked into the beautiful, historical building, entered the halls, rode the elevator up to our rooms, stepped into our suite, my breath was taken. Absolutely every detail, no matter how tiny, was executed flawlessly. The gourmet chocolates
