To start planning your vacation to Peninsula Hong Kong
The Peninsula is the most famous and prestigious luxury hotel in Hong Kong, located on Kowloon Island next to the Star Ferry terminal and the endless shopping opportunities of Nathan Road. Its location affords unrivalled views across to Hong Kong Island.
From its stunning lobby to the sweeping views of Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong Island, the Peninsula’s original building dates back to 1928 and stands just six floors high. The 27 storey tower was added a decade ago to offer stunning harbor view guest rooms, mimicking the rooms of the original building.
Each room is elegantly furnished and has high ornate ceilings and whether you stay in the original building or the tower, all rooms have the same large picture windows, indulgent bathrooms and the latest in-room technology. The Peninsula's suites are lavish and capacious and are perfect for those traveling with family or just wanting that added luxury of space and even more comfort.
Felix Restaurant and Wine Bar dominates the top two floors, whilst the lobby is the place to be seen for afternoon tea. Other restaurants serve Japanese, Chinese, French and even Swiss cuisine in a chalet style setting. Designer boutiques are housed on the fringes of the hotel, a paradise for shoppers, and the spa and pool area are a great place to relax after all that retail therapy. The Peninsula will seduce you with its old-world charm and modern conveniences.
The Peninsula Hong Kong has 300 rooms and suites with City or Harbour Views. Both the classic rooms in the original building and the newer harbor view rooms in the tower offer smart, elegant and comfortable accommodation with fingertip controls, plasma screen TVs and cool white marble bathrooms. Superior Rooms and the more spacious Deluxe & Deluxe Courtyard Rooms are located in the original building and the Grand Deluxe Rooms are in the lower floors (17-27) of the new tower. For those wanting a classic view over Hong Kong Harbour and across to the cityscape of the island, the Grand Deluxe Harbour view Rooms offer spectacular vistas. Superior and Deluxe Suites are in the original building and have the luxury of separate sitting/dining rooms and most of the other suites are located in the tower with the added benefit of that iconic skyline.
Children are welcome at The Peninsula Hong Kong and special bathrobes are provided for them as well as activity kits, specialist equipment such as cots etc and special room service menus. Babysitting can be provided. The Peninsula Kids' Academy occasionally runs cooking classes for 6-12 year olds with the hotel's chef.
The ESPA spa is a luxurious sanctuary and several of the indulgent treatment rooms overlook the harbor. There is also an indoor heated swimming pool with a lovely timber decked sun terrace, and fully equipped gym with steam room, sauna and Jacuzzi. The hotel's eight restaurants have a great reputation and attract people from all over the city with contemporary fare at the Philippe Starck designed Felix and afternoon tea in the lobby being institutions for the city's foodies.
Leisure activities within the hotel include the indoor pool, spa, fitness center and numerous restaurants and bars. Outside, the world is your oyster, being on the Kowloon side of Hong Kong means that a short trip on the star ferry to the island is a fun way to begin a days sightseeing or shopping.

This a fantastic hotel. One of the only heritage hotels in Hong Kong and as such it has a lovely feel to it. You can get picked up by a Royce Rolls at the airport and sweep up to the enormous and opulent lobby. The Peninsular also has by far the best pool area of any hotel in Hong Kong - if you're traveling for leisure, this is the place to stay!

Afternoon tea is a must do for many visitors to Hong Kong and rightly so. Step into The Lobby and you feel as though you have gone back in time and I would highly recommend tea there as it is one of the few traditions left from the colonial period. Enjoy finger sandwiches and scones with a delicious pot of Earl Grey tea, whilst being serenaded by the string quartet. Afternoon tea is open to everyone, whether you are staying at the Peninsula or not and is served from 2pm until 7pm. The dress code is smart casual so no flip flops or sleeveless shirts for men. Reservations cannot be made in advance, so you may need to queue to get a table, especially on the weekends.
