The Peninsula Hong Kong
They don’t call it the Grand Dame of the Far East for nothing. The Peninsula is one of Hong Kong’s, if not Asia’s, most iconic five-star luxury hotels. It opened in 1928 when the city was still a British colony and has evolved to represent the best of East-meets-West hospitality. Expect classic old-school elegance and impeccable service; it’s luxury but not snobby. Located in the heart of Tsim Tsa Tsui, the hotel is on the doorstep of major attractions and its rooms offer sweeping views of the spectacular Victoria Harbour. Famed for its luxury fleet of green Rolls-Royces, available for airport transport and private hire, there’s no classier way to arrive. Afternoon tea here has become a bit of a local institution, too – a great excuse to visit and just soak in the atmosphere, even if you’re not planning to stay.
