The Landmark Mandarin Oriental
In stark contrast to its storied Connaught Road sibling, The Landmark Mandarin Oriental is the hotel of choice for creatives, fashion insiders and digital glitterati who are visiting Hong Kong. An unmistakably spa-like atmosphere — courtesy of internationally renowned interior designer Joyce Wang — reinforces the property’s boutique trappings, as do the staff (warm and proactive) and thoroughly well-kitted fitness facilities. Still, any doubt about world-class credentials shall be swiftly erased when you peruse the dining directory. Following a 4-month renovation, Amber — Chef Richard Ekkebus’s Michelin-starred fine diner — is joined by a trio of new restaurants, giving savvy eaters a plethora of Japanese and pan-European cuisines to choose from.
