The Peninsula Hong Kong, Hong Kong, Hong Kong
A veritable legend, and Hong Kong's oldest hotel, this legendary "Grande Dame of the Far East" continues to set hotel standards worldwide, mixing perfect Eastern service with oh-so-British traditions.
‘The Pen’ lives up to its reputation in every way, with an atmosphere of unmatched classical grandeur and timeless elegance.
Arriving in one of the hotel’s 14 green Rolls-Royces (or their helicopter) is just the start of an extraordinary experience and when staying here you’ll get to re-live the glamour of travel of a bygone era and explore the many antiques and historical artefacts on display around the hotel.
In fact, you can sense the history everywhere you look, but while the style is nostalgic, the facilities are bang up-to-date.
The views of the harbour are just magnificent (make sure your room’s on that side), and afternoon tea in The Lobby is a must-do, as are cocktails in the fab Starck-designed Felix restaurant. As good as it gets? Quite possibly.
