The contemporary, completely remodeled guest rooms and suites at The Peninsula Hong Kong in Kowloon feature modern high-tech conveniences, luxurious Italian designer furniture and a pleasing neutral color scheme of light grays, whites and cream-colored upholstery. The bedroom in our grand deluxe harbour view room at this Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel featured art-deco style light fixtures, an elegant wall applique made from steel that’s shaped like the branches and flowers of a tree, plush carpeting, spacious work desk with pop-up outlet station, lacquered wood cabinets and chic leather appointments. A comfortable chaise lounge chair from Italian designer Cassina was positioned near an attractive extendable dining table from Poltrona Frau, another renowned Italian designer, and the plush king-sized bed was made with custom 100-percent cotton linens by Quagliotti.
Of course, those are the just the furnishings in this luxury Hong Kong hotel’s top-class accommodations. Modern amenities in our room included an iPod dock station, digital radio, two pairs of high-fidelity Focal headphones, touchscreen LED wall panels, 3D Samsung flat-screen television, Sony Blu-ray player and three Samsung tablets with controls for just about everything in the room, from the television and radio to the lighting and temperature.
Finally — yes, there’s more — rooms at The Peninsula Hong Kong are also thoughtfully equipped with convenient amenities such as an area jogging map, Nespresso machine, umbrellas and bedside power station with charging cords for iPods, iPhones, Palm, Samsung, LG and most other major handheld devices.
All the rooms at The Peninsula Hong Kong have recently been renovated to reflect a classic, chic design style with a sleek Asian aesthetic — expect countless built-in cabinets and smooth uninterrupted surfaces. Rooms are spacious and feel residential, with sitting areas and two desks, one for work and one for dressing (even in the smallest rooms). Bathrooms are equally spacious and opulent, with sunken tubs and separate walk-in marble showers. But the centerpiece of the guest rooms is the technology, with oversized 3D TVs and Blu-ray players with surround sound, three wireless touch-screen tablets that control lights, climate, drapes and more, several audio/video inputs, and international charging stations that can handle devices without adaptors. The built-in cabinetry and drawers are evocative of a fine yacht, with everything hidden away from view yet easy to find, from the individual Nespresso coffee machines to the fingernail drying stations.
