Opened in 1928, during an era when everything was grand and opulent, the Peninsula Hotel Hong Kong has long been considered one of the world’s finest hotels.
The hotel earned many nicknames, including “The Grande Dame of the Far East”, and during its design and building process, was touted as “The Finest Hotel East of Suez”.
About the Hotel
From the time of its opening nearly eight decades ago, the Peninsula Hotel – Hong Kong’s oldest – has become synonymous with fine service, top-notch hospitality, and luxury accommodations. No other hotel in Hong Kong comes close to offering the amenities of the Peninsula, and few hotels in the world have earned such a spotless reputation.
The Peninsula Hotel appears near the top of nearly all hotel review lists in publications like the Zagat Survey and Conde Naste Traveler, earning the highest grades in just about every area of adjudication.
The interior of the hotel is timelessly elegant, yet the facilities and services are modern and state-of-the-art. Rooms and suites are extremely spacious, ranging from about 450 square feet for the standard accommodation to the grand 4,000 square foot Peninsula Suite, located on the 26th floor.
At the Peninsula, which added a 37-story tower in 1994, amenities are over-the-top as well. They include a magnificent Roman-style swimming pool, a fabulous rooftop restaurant with panoramic views, a sun terrace that overlooks Victoria Harbour, a state-of-the-art fitness center boasting the latest in equipment, a fully-equipped business center, a salon, and several banquet and meeting rooms.
In addition, the Peninsula Shopping Arcade – located on the basement, ground, and mezzanine levels – consists of 80 shops. You’ll find the best designers here, including Prada, Louis Vuitton, Versace, Jimmy Chen, Christian Dior, and many more.
That Little Something Extra
The Peninsula Hotel Hong Kong is famous for its fleet of Rolls-Royce limousines which are used to transport guests in style to various locations throughout the territory. In addition, twin helipads on the roof provide a convenient landing spot for guests who wish to arrive or depart by helicopter. What could be more luxurious!
