Stay on the Bay

The hottest place to wake up refreshed is the city’s first urban resort, Kerry Hotel (opened late April). Situated at Hung Hom Bay, it offers arguably the best hotel harbour views, with stunning vistas of north to central Hong Kong. The immediate sensation (and the lasting impression) upon entering this five-star property is the luxury of space, and the privacy of nature. The stylish and fluid design by Andre Fu creates a true luxury resort ambience. This is particularly true in the many al fresco areas that use greenery creatively to carve hidden spaces that naturally invokes a deep sense of relaxation. Its bar, Red Sugar, with 270-degree harbour views from its outdoor terrace has quickly become one of the hippest places for sunset cocktails. shangri-la.com/hongkong/kerry Other superb options are the grande dame, The Peninsula, the chic Four Seasons, or for a boutique option, The Pottinger.

 

Satisfy your appetite

For a revolutionary dining experience try Happy Paradise, the latest opening from the innovative May Chow and her team. Chow, Asia’s Best Female Chef 2017 (Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants awards) is the talented ambassador for, and creator of, neo-Chinese cuisine. Her creations pay homage to and are inspired by tradition while presenting delicious dishes in a completely new, modern, reinvented, at times playful, thoughtful, inspired way. For example, the scallop “rice roll” inspired by cheung fun is made purely from scallop. Other standouts include comforting pan fried pig’s brain with burnt pear juice, and succulent slow-cooked chicken that highlights chrysanthemum. The cocktails are also excellent. happyparadise.hk
