Hong Kong is a tiny patch of land whose urban silhouette faces the sea, and on which seven million inhabitants are packed into between skyscrapers and aging apartment buildings. Located on the east bank of the River of Pearls, the city is bathed by the southern coast of the China Sea.
This once almost deserted rock whose legendary name means “Port of Perfumes” was a tiny speck in the Asian part of the former British Empire. After being returned to China in 1997, the streets retained both their English and Cantonese names, and the territory has preserved a relative autonomy. In addition to being a major international financial and commercial player, it is also the richest city in China.
From Victoria Peak, the highest point of Hong Kong island, the city looks like a vast forest of skyscrapers. At 428 meters above sea level, visitors can enjoy the view of the Kowloon peninsula, Port Victoria and the city’s skyline, a combination of high rise buildings, elegant Victorian structures, the huge bay and its fleet of ships and further on, the multitude of tiny islands inhabited by fishermen. All of these elements are facets of this cosmopolitan territory symbolizing Asian growth and success.
Located in Central, the business and financial quarter of Hong Kong, just a few steps from the headquarters of the hotel’s prestigious group, the Landmark is a boutique hotel, totally different from its opposite number created in 1963. Elegant and modern are the key words of this hotel where space represents true luxury.
Superbly decorated with dark parquet floors and pastel walls, the 101 rooms average 50 square meters in size. The twelve 80 square meter suites have totally mirrored bathrooms and gigantic bathtubs. Their pure, contemporary style blending subtle tones and high tech equipment are the work of Peter Remedios, a Hong Kong designer.
The Landmark’s two floors are in a setting designed to forget the hustle and bustle of the city. In addition to its 15 treatment rooms, there are also a number of other wellness spaces including energizing pools, ice fountains, relaxation cabins, crystal amethyst hammams and an 18 meter indoor swimming pool, all ideal for being totally pampered before a round of shopping in the luxurious boutiques of the shopping center, connected to the hotel via a tunnel.
After your spending spree, the place to head for is the Amber restaurant run by thedoubly starred chef, Richard Ekkebus. Created by designer Adam Tihany in accordance with the recommendations of a Feng Shui master, the restaurant recreates the atmosphere of Hong Kong in the 1930s while still preserving an ultra modern style. The chef’s specialties, “Hokkaido sea urchins in with caviar accompanied by algae chips” or “Waygu beef with Cévennes capered onions” are strongly recommended.
And to end the evening, the place to be is the very trendy MO Bar, famous throughout all of Hong Kong for its delicious cocktails.
The impressive bronze chandelier above the middle of the Amber restaurant consists of 3,900 copper tubes, creating a very special play of light and shapes.
