The grande dame of Hong Kong hotels has had a little nip and tuck recently including the presidential show piece: The Peninsula Suite.
If you’re in Hong Kong on January 29th make sure you have a room with a view – of Victoria Harbour for the Chinese New Year fireworks. Here’s our lucky number eight for firework dinners:
View of the fireworks in the harbour from the Intercontinental hotel
The Interconti is perched right on the harbour’s edge so many of the guest rooms have fantastic views as well as the Harbourside restaurant and Nobu if you can bag a window table. Both restaurants are offering a Chinese New Year Fireworks Dinner Menu.
If you’re in Hong Kong for October 1st make sure you have a room with a view – of Victoria Harbour for the National Day fireworks.
The Interconti is perched right on the harbour’s edge giving it some fantastic views from many of its guests rooms where you feel you’re right on the water and the rooftop Presidential Suite as well as the Lobby Lounge and Harbourside restaurant plus Alain Ducasse’s Spoon and Nobu if you can bag a window table.
All the restaurants have special menus planned for October 1st including a six course tasting menu at Alain Ducasse and an eight course omakase menu at Nobu.
If you’re feeling the heat in Hong Kong this weekend pop along to the Intercontinental for a slightly bonkers but brilliant ice cream burger.
Available in the Lobby Lounge, the five “burgers” each feature a homemade brioche bun filled with various flavours of ice cream, cream, cookies, fruits and jam.
Available until September 30th 2015.
In town for business or bleisure? Check into Chopstix’s pick of Hong Kong hotels with great Club lounges. The criteria? Great views and real champagne.
Grand Club, Grand Hyatt
UPDATE: Grand Hyatt’s club lounge has just reopened following a revamp. It still has a sweeping stair case leading up to the best view of Victoria Harbour. They’ve now extended the evening champagne (with canapés) to all day free flow.
The Ritz Carlton Club Lounge
Open 24 hours with breakfast, light lunches, afternoon tea, canapés and dessert bar. 465 meters above sea level, it has TST rather than harbour views which are impressive none the less. Best of all there’s an around the clock bar including champagne.
Horizon Club, Island Shangri La
Lavish decor plus outdoor roof garden with city and Victoria Peak views on the 56th floor. Impressive evening buffet as well as champagne. Also gives you access to the lovely Petrus restaurant for breakfast.
The Four Seasons Executive Club
Fantastic balcony with views of the harbour from the 45th floor. Open 24 hours with champagne available with evening canapés and post dinner – the bar is open until 1am.
Club Intercontinental, The Intercontinental
Great breakfast (including a la carte menu) and afternoon tea. Mezzanine level looking out at the Hong Kong skyline and over the hotel’s lobby so you don’t feel detached from the action. Champagne with evening canapes.
