The Peninsula Hong Kong
Very few hotels conjure up Hong Kong’s halcyon days — junks on the open water, Tiffany chandeliers, Noble House glam — quite so dramatically as The Peninsula. Opened in 1928 by members of the Kadoorie family, the hotel has since become an unassailable part of Hong Kong pop culture (visitors flock from all across Asia to experience the famed afternoon tea service held across the lobby). Upstairs, the vibe in the guest rooms is decidedly less baroque, blending a timeless colour palette with material accents from the worlds of private yachting and motorsport. At The Peninsula, your mode of arrival is equally as important as the hotel itself: with options ranging from one of the iconic ‘Brewster Green’ Rolls-Royce Phantoms to a twin-engined helicopter capable of whisking you to the airport in 7 minutes.
