The tall silhouette of the Hotel Icon, the work of Rocco Yim, also the creator of One Peking Road and the IFC, rises over the Hong Kong peninsula in the heart of Kowloon.This 28 story atypical hotel possesses 262 luxury rooms and suites, and is a hymn to contemporary design. Its décor is the work of several talented interior architects: William Lim created the staircase in the reception area and the suites, Patrick Blanc, the green wall of the restaurant, and Freeman Lau designed the restaurant- bar, as well as collecting objects from all over and displaying them throughout the hotel. The Above and Beyond restaurant on the top floor is the work of Sir Terence Conran. Fashion designer Vivienne Tam created a suite on the 27th floor which bears her name and which was inspired by her New York apartment, with a blend of Chinese elements and ultra design furniture like the red sofa by the Bourellec Brothers. All of the higher rooms have an uninterrupted view of the Hong Kong skyline.The Angsana spa, the personalized attention of the staff and the omnipresent view of the bay are all suplementary features of this unique hotel where creativity rhymes with comfort.

Hong Kong

Located on the China Sea, the city of Hong Kong is made up of the island of Hong Kong, the Kowloon Peninsula, the New Territories in the north as well as 235 small islands for a total surface of 1,104 square kilometers. Seven million inhabitants are packed into this tiny patch of land, whose legendary name means “Port of Perfumes”, making it the city with the densest population and one of the most important in the world.This formermember of the British Empire, returned to China in 1997, continues to maintain its identity as a city for business and shopping, and the streets have retained their British as well as their Cantonese names. Although part of China once again, Hong Kong has preserved a relative autonomy.

From Victoria Peak, the highest point on the island of Hong Kong, to Kowloon and including the New Territories, this multi-faceted city possesses huge luxurious apartment and office buildings, elegant Victorian structures and Taoist temples all bearing witness to the history of this cosmopolitan metropolis and a symbol of Asian growth and success.

Art and design

The tall silhouette of the Hotel Icon in the heart of Kowloon on the Hong Kong Peninsula rises up facing the Bay of Tsim Sha Tsui. Owned by the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, this atypical hotel was the work of Rocco Yim to whom Hong Kong also owes the building known as One Peking Road and the IFC.

The Icon’s 28 stories contain 262 luxurious rooms and suites. The décor was entrusted to a number of talented interior architects who created a veritable hymn to contemporary design. William Lin designed the reception area’s staircase and the suites, highlighting the concepts of comfort and space. The vegetal wall of the Green restaurant is the work of a specialist in this area, Patrick Blanc.

The art objects spread throughout the hotel were collected by designer Freeman Lau from a group of Asian artists and a young creator designed the staff uniforms. The Above and Beyond restaurant on the 28th floor, the work of Sir Terence Conran, invokes the atmosphere of a private club. In all of the higher rooms, there’s a superb view of the Hong Kong skyline.

On the 27th floor, creator Vivienne Tam decorated a suite which bearts her name. The celebrated fashion designer and graduate of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University took here inspiration from her New York apartment decorated with a blend of Chinese objects and ultra design furniture, like the red Bourellec Brothers sofa.

Add to all these features an Angsana spa on the 9th floor and the Market restaurant whose décor was inspired by the markets on the streets of Hong Kong, a highly attentive staff and an omnipresent view of the bay, and it’s perfectly clear why the Hotel Icon is an outstanding address where creativity rhymes with luxury and comfort.

Private rooms in the restaurant enable guests to ask the chef to concoct a personalized meal.
