Hong Kong hotels are constantly outdoing each other with their creations of atmospheric ambiances and eye-catching interiors. And 2008 is no exception: new hotels have opened, and some have undergone a real metamorphosis. With their new, trendy personalities, the hotels are attracting even more visitors – and Hong Kong is still the must see metropolis in Asia.
The W-hotel, built on the occasion of the last Olympic Games, is the latest addition to the lively Kowloon district. The hotel has 393 luxury guest rooms, with a striking view of the Hong Kong skyline. The rooms are very well-equipped with the latest technological gadgets; there is even an LCD screen hanging in every bathroom!
In addition, the hotel offers its ‘whatever/whenever service’ – guests can order ‘whatever’ ‘whenever’ they like. W-hotel can provide virtually anything on request – from jogging shoes to a private jet.
In the heart of the Tsim Sha Tsui district, you find the popular, trendy Luxe Manor and Mira hotels. The Luxe Manor boutique hotel has developed a unique design for six new suites: upon entering each new suite, you step into another world.
You can choose from the themes: Nordic, Safari, Liaison, Royal, Chic or Mirage.
Sleeping in sparkling crystal surroundings or right under the desert stars; waking up in a romantic, Venetian atmosphere or in a seductive Hollywood suite: everything is possible.
The Mirage suite takes the cake with its surreal ambiance: undulating walls, optical illusions, hidden treasures: nothing is what it seems in this enchanting space.
