Hongkongers are known to have some of the longest working hours in the world, and there’s no doubt that work has a tendency to dominate our lives. As a result, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed from time to time, a problem that can be exacerbated if you’re not living in a home that allows you to feel relaxed and rejuvenated. Fortunately, there are ways to fix that problem.
If you’re looking to improve your work-life balance, perhaps it’s time to consider relocating to a luxury serviced apartment, whether it’s for a month or a year. The city’s top serviced apartments can offer you a better quality of life and make every day a little bit easier, especially since they’re conveniently located close to the offices of many companies.
Here are five reasons you should consider taking up residence at Swire Properties’ Pacific Place Apartments or Taikoo Place Apartments:
You’ll have a place to relax
Whether you’ve put in a long day’s work at the office, are getting accustomed to a new city, or have been running around all day with the kids, it’s important to have a place of relaxation — especially in a hectic city like Hong Kong.
Taikoo Place Apartments come with no shortage of facilities for you to enjoy, including a private clubhouse with a reading lounge, outdoor terrace, and a lounging area with a refreshment bar. Feeling active? You’re free to use the on-site gym, where you can forget about the stress of the day with an invigorating workout.
Afterward, you can unwind in not one but two opulent spas, both inspired by a traditional Turkish hammam. The smaller of the two is perfect for singles and couples to relax in private, while the larger spa can accommodate a larger group of friends. Both options come with deluxe rain showers, Jacuzzis, and steam rooms, and a range of body care products and refreshments complete the spa experience.
At Pacific Place Apartments, meanwhile, residents have full access to the health facilities at the adjoining Conrad Hong Kong, including an outdoor swimming pool and a 24-hour fitness centre. Once you grow accustomed to your complimentary membership, you might never want to move out.
You’ll enjoy the benefits of prime locations
In choosing a permanent home, location is always an important factor to consider, and there’s no difference when it comes to selecting the best serviced apartment.
Residents of Taikoo Place Apartments have access to the ideal mix of city living and natural greenery. Aside from being close to the many offices of Taikoo Place, the location provides easy access to the many dining, shopping, and entertainment offerings of CityPlaza, including a new cinema scheduled to open later this year. Need a break from the hustle and bustle? Hop on the nearby trails of Mount Parker, Hong Kong Island’s second-tallest peak, for a much-needed escape into nature — and to enjoy picture perfect views of the skyline and Victoria Harbour.
At Pacific Place Apartments, residents have access to top-tier dining and shopping offerings as well as the movies playing at the AMC cinema — but local activities aren’t limited to those found inside Pacific Place. Those seeking green space can unwind in the verdant surrounds of Hong Kong Park, not to mention the Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens. Those looking to explore the neighbourhood will find much to enjoy in the restaurants, boutiques, bars, and cafes located in the Star Street Precinct.
You’ll love the fantastic design and comforts
As anyone who’s ever moved to a new place knows all too well, finding the right residence is only half the battle. Next, you have to worry about finding the best furnishings, painting the walls the perfect colours, and countless other aspects to make your new home inhabitable. To put it lightly, the whole thing is a headache.
No matter what your circumstances, when you choose to live in Pacific Place Apartments or Taikoo Place Apartments, you won’t have to worry about any of that, as the units come fully furnished with everything you need to live your life from the moment you walk in the front door. Contemporary design, open floor plans, well-appointed kitchens, plush beds, comfortable sofas, top-of-the-line appliances, and much more are all part of the package at these serviced apartments.
You won’t have to worry about stocking the kitchen, either, as cookware and tableware are provided in every apartment. And for your entertainment needs, you can enjoy Bose sound systems, complimentary broadband WiFi, and smart TVs with over 110 local and international channels.
You won’t need to lift a finger
Living in a serviced apartment means most of the work is taken care of for you. There’s no need to waste your hours cleaning or tidying up, as housekeeping services are included at both Pacific Place Apartments and Taikoo Place Apartments.
What’s more, both residences offer 24-hour security and concierge services, so all your matters will be completely sorted, whether you need packages delivered or help booking a reservation at the perfect restaurant.
You can stay as long as you like
Amongst the many benefits of living at Pacific Place Apartments or Taikoo Place Apartments is that you needn’t make a long commitment, and the terms of your stay are quite flexible. After committing to just a one-month minimum, you can stay for for as long as you like, hassle-free, for weeks or months.
Serviced apartments are often regarded as temporary residences, but you shouldn’t be surprised to learn that some have called these places home for years on end. Indeed, given the quality of design, range of services, excellent facilities, enviable locations, and easy living style, you just might end up doing the same thing yourself.
