A sense of place
When The Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong undertook its renovation of rooms two years ago to coincide with its 10th anniversary, the hotel called on Hong Kong architect Joyce Wang to oversee the project. Saving the best for last, the hotel recently announced the first of two new Wang-designed suites. The Apartment Suite, as it is called, is situated on the hotel’s topmost floor, commanding a view of its vibrant Central district.
Offering the fittings and residential aesthetic to match many a luxury penthouse, The Apartment Suite sprawls across 1,500 square feet of well-appointed space. Wang’s particular touch fills the space with gold, caramel and royal blue with natural wood floors. A grand brass chandelier is paired to a six-seat crackled gesso-finish dining table while a Gaggenau kitchen allows for an in-room chef experience.
Living areas offer velvet-soft sofas and hand-tufted rugs, while a bespoke desk makes it easy for one to remain productive and mix business with leisure. A master suite with walk-in dressing space is connected to the spa-inspired marbled bathroom, replete with a deep soaking bathtub and walk-in rainforest showers.
A Central Retreat package, crafted to celebrate this new room offering, is priced at HKD50,000++ per night and is available till the end of June. Among the highlights are HKD5,000 of credit for use at either the hotel’s two-star Michelin restaurant Amber, its MO Bar or The Oriental Spa, breakfast, complimentary minibar, round-trip transfers from the airport, flexible check-in and check-out times and a signature bespoke bathtub experience, complete with champagne, rose petals and a mood- inducing playlist. Guests will also have the option of transforming their stay into a two-bedroom residence with an adjacent L450 guest room which transforms their living situation to a 1,950-square foot space.
