With 565 guest rooms, 8 award-winning dining venues and an enviable location atop Pacific Place, there’s something to satisfy every kind of guest at the Island Shangri-La. Kerry Group’s flagship property has long been a favourite amongst all corners of Hong Kong society (on any given day, it’s not uncommon to see a diverse assortment of tourists, families, and professional types all checking in). World-class shopping along with many of the city’s most famous landmarks lie just beyond your doorstep, though a 24-hr gym, outdoor pool, and exhaustive spa facilities provide weary travellers with ample reason to stay in. For Michelin-starred fine dining, a visit to Petrus (perched on the hotel’s 56th floor) comes highly recommended. Now under the care of El Bulli veteran Uwe Opocensky, the cooking has taken on a modern elemental edge, with seemingly simple dishes — a brioche topped with plum and foie gras — emphasising a restrained approach to gastronomy.
