Hong Kong’s oldest hotel, The Peninsula has built a reputation of classical grandeur on the finest traditions of service and hospitality.
Transfer from the airport in a Peninsula-chauffeured Rolls-Royce limousine, or by helicopter to the twin helipads on the tower roof, your launch pad to Hong Kong’s territories. With iconic status yet independent personalities, the restaurants are emblems of Hong Kong’s dining heritage, whilst the Spa by ESPA is a sensual sanctuary.
Why we love it: Designed to be the most spectacular suite in Hong Kong, unabashed opulence dominates this 26th floor residence at one of the world’s most historic hotels. Boasting an immense master bedroom with marble bath, fitness room and private study, subtle Oriental influences are reflected in the Richard International and Alison Henry design. But it is the view that really sells this suite: from the very top of the Peninsula Tower, the panoramic vista stretches right across Victoria Harbor. Hours can be spent observing this view either from the bath positioned under vast windows or the open air balcony. A butler and chauffeur are on call 24 hours a day further enhancing the luxury of your stay in one of Hong Kong’s most spectacular suites.
