Located on Victoria Harbour in the Central district, Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong is one of the premier places to stay in Hong Kong. Here's why:
1. Location. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel is in Hong Kong’s Central district and directly connected to the upscale ifc mall, which has more than 40 restaurants and cafés, a movie theater, a gourmet grocery store and four floors packed with shops and boutiques. MRT subway stations and piers for the world-famous Star Ferry can be accessed via the mall, and Hong Kong’s popular dining and nightlife areas of Lan Kwai Fong and WynHo are both a short 10-minute walk away.
2. Amenities. From a well-equipped, 24-hour fitness center to a stunning 79-foot infinity pool that appears to spill into Victoria Harbour, the amenities at this luxe Hong Kong hotel are some of the best you’ll find anywhere. All 399 guest rooms are outfitted with plush king beds, Wi-Fi access, 42-inch flat-screen televisions, DVD players and Bose iPod docks. Families with children will appreciate thoughtful kid-friendly touches such as complimentary disposable diapers, child-sized bathrobes and the milk and cookies served at bedtime.
3. Service. Need last-minute reservations to a popular restaurant or tickets and transportation to Hong Kong Disneyland? It’s hardly a problem for the gracious, service-oriented concierge staff at this Five-Star hotel. In general, the hotel staff is trained to anticipate your needs before you even realize what they are.
4. Dining. Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong is home to two of the finest restaurants in all of Hong Kong. Caprice, a stylish French restaurant, is home to the first artisanal French cheese cellar in the city and an open-air kitchen where you can watch the chefs prepare signature dishes such as langoustine ravioli with veal sweetbreads and fresh mushrooms and racan pigeon feuillete with foie gras. Executive chef Chan Yan Tak oversees the delectable Cantonese cuisine at contemporary Lung King Heen, where the seasonal dim-sum lunches are the stuff of legend and the dinner menu features mouthwatering specialties like braised goose web casserole and wok-fried Australian wagyu beef cubes with duck liver.
5. Spa. You’ll want to book one of the luxurious body treatments or facials offered at Five-Star The Spa at Four Seasons Hong Kong well in advance: Scoring a walk-in appointment can be difficult since this Hong Kong spa has been solidly booked since the day it first opened in 2005. There’s a few good reasons for its ongoing popularity, namely the cheerful and accommodating staff, the immaculate public areas (vitality pools, eucalyptus-scented steam rooms, relaxation lounges), and the team of well-trained therapists.
