Stylish Hong Kong stalwart with a waterfront location and a clutch of Michelin stars
The ground-floor lobby and lounge harness feng shui principles, with light and water merging through a huge wall of glass overlooking Victoria Harbour. Wavelike wood-paneled walls and split-level seating areas create a nautical feel, while contemporary artworks, puffy white sofas and a round-the-clock crowd of buzzy business types and cheerful holidaymakers keeps the vibe inviting.
Bed and Bath
Dark wood furnishings, luxe textures and a natural color palette amount to a fresh and restrained — if somewhat uninspired — style. Huge marble bathrooms with sunken tubs, separate showers and stacks of L’Occitane amenities add a regal touch. Two thirds of the guestrooms and all 92 Suites have magnificent harbor views. The remaining rooms, which are less expensive and slightly larger, overlook the outdoor swimming pool and pretty sun terrace.
The hotel has a fine collection of restaurants: Spoon by Alain Ducasse (two Michelin stars) serves seductive French cuisine, Yan Toh Heen (one Michelin star) delivers classic Cantonese dishes with panache, and never-out-of-fashion Nobu has an innovative Japanese menu. If guests don’t want to dress to the nines, try the Steak House and Harbourside. Sated, you can work off the extra calories with some laps in the outdoor pool — the largest in Hong Kong — or sign up for one of the hotel’s free tai chi or yoga classes. A Kerstin Florian facial at I-Spa will have you ready to hit the town again in no time.
In the Area
The hotel’s Kowloon-side location makes for an action-packed stay. Wander along the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade, posing with bronze Bruce Lees and taking in street performances on the Avenue of Stars. Then hit the shops on flashy Nathan Road. A more refined retail experience can be found at 1881 Heritage, a 120-year-old former marine police headquarters haloed by steel skyscrapers and brimming with luxury boutiques. When night falls, get high. The Philippe Stark–designed Felix, at top of the Peninsula Hotel, and Aqua, on the 30th floor of 1 Peking Road, are two of the glitziest bars-with-a-view in all of Hong Kong.
