Hong Kong Havens

Let's Travel - - Hong Kong -

On my re­cent jaunt to the bustling me­trop­o­lis of Hong Kong, I had the plea­sure of un­pack­ing my bags at two very dif­fer­ent ho­tels.

Ar­riv­ing well into the evening, my driver nav­i­gated the jour­ney to the Lang­ham Place in the heart of Kowloon in no time at all. While my bags were whisked away, I was able to quickly scout the sur­round­ing area – per­fect; we were in the heart of the ac­tion; there was shop­ping and more right on my doorstep! This Lang­ham is like no other I’ve ex­pe­ri­enced – it’s funky, trendy, very con­tem­po­rary and has a re­ally up­beat vibe about it. Art­works are a stand­out and the dé­cor is a win­ner.

The usual pa­per­work was com­pleted over a freshly brewed cof­fee (my pref­er­ence over bub­bly af­ter a long flight) in the lux­u­ri­ous con­fines of the Club Lounge. I re­turned to the Lounge a few times dur­ing my visit for af­ter­noon tea, evening cock­tails and even a late night night­cap. Dur­ing my stay I dis­cov­ered that Club guests could avail them­selves of a ded­i­cated lobby desk, en­joy a late 2pm check out, and make use of the HK$150 mini­bar credit per night. There was un­lim­ited WiFi ac­cess, com­pli­men­tary press­ing ser­vice of three gar­ments on ar­rival and a free half hour spa treat­ment with any 60-minute ser­vice booked.

Thanks to the typ­i­cal at­ten­tive­ness and dili­gence of Lang­ham Ho­tels glob­ally, there was a de­li­cious box of hand­made choco­lates and a per­son­alised birth­day card signed by the GM wait­ing for me in my spa­cious suite; and it was very spa­cious in a city where real es­tate runs at a pre­mium! The mar­bled en­suite was mas­sive with sep­a­rate bath and rain shower. The over­sized Lang­ham Bliss­ful bed was flanked by side ta­bles, and there was a com­fort­able seat­ing area as well as a good sized desk.
