Peninsula’s flagship hotel, a refined grande dame overlooking Hong Kong harbor that still exudes timeless luxury
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.
