Yamm Res­tau­rant

Sun.Star Cebu Weekend - - Travel -

We hit Hong Kong again in a just a lit­tle over a month from Hong Kong Fash­ion Week, this time for the third in­stall­ment of Cen­trestage — Asia’s Fash­ion Spot­light. As the event by the Hong Kong Trade and De­vel­op­ment Coun­cil is part­nered on the life­style level with The Mira Hong Kong, there was no bet­ter way to stay the week in style than at this de­sign­driven and fash­ion-for­ward ho­tel.

The very first mem­ber prop­erty of the De­sign Ho­tels net­work in Hong Kong, The Mira’s sleek and dark struc­ture, over­looks Kowloon Park — a beau­ti­ful emer­ald patch in the con­crete heart of Tsim Sha Tsui. Nes­tled in the bou­tique-lined shop­ping district and in­te­grated into the brand’s mall prop­erty, the Mira Place, the ho­tel is a con­ve­nient and strate­gic choice for the fash­ion­able trav­eler.

Heav­ily tinted glass doors re­veal an all-mar­ble lobby with con­tem­po­rary sculp­tures and sculp­tural de­tails. Hard shine and re­flec­tive sur­faces re­cur through­out to ap­peal to the fash­ion­ista’s de­fault Nar­cis­sist. As con­cep­tu­al­ized by life­style guru Colin Cowie and de­signed by Mi­ami-based in­te­rior ar­chi­tect Charles Allem, the prop­erty’s fu­tur­is­tic flam­boy­ance oozes out of ev­ery cor­ner.

El­e­va­tor doors to the rooms open to cor­ri­dors with mir­rored ceil­ings that evoke Yayoi Kusama’s in­fin­ity se­ries. Our Park View room win­dow paints a jux­ta­po­si­tion of the hus­tle and bus­tle of Nathan Road be­low against the man­i­cured green­ery across the street.
