September 2016 · From the remote and less frequented islands of Thailand to the unending expanse of the Caribbean beaches of the Dominican Republic, there is so much in between to see and be humbled by. World Travel Magazine highlights a selection of 50 luxury properties across the world that are currently pushing the trend in opulence and style. The beauty of nature and the temptation of exploring the wilderness has been man’s basic instinct. Capitalising on this potential, governments, hoteliers and naturalists have come together in many of the properties on this list to preserve the environment and at the same time make it accessible. Many of the properties are designated UNESCO protected sites. Beaches, forests, vibrant cities, popular tourist friendly townships and old restored properties are featured here as well. It is a fascinating read for it reveals not just options for the traveller but also the zest, endurance and passion that went in to transform a vision into life." />

Tuve (Hong Kong)

Minimalistic straight lines with no fuss and yet with a stark sense of realism and classic appeal, the Tuve in Hong Kong brings with it a new concept of boutique hospitality.

Clever lighting, use of colours that play with stark solid bases while merging with frugal neutral hues put the hotel in a league of its own. There is a quiet harmony that runs through the whole hotel with design elements that are never intrusive or assaulting to the sensibilities. Its 66 rooms on 32 floors with views of Happy Valley and Victoria Park Premier rooms feature a king-size bed, minimalist décor, and a spacious walk-in shower. They come in three sizes ranging from 17 to 30 square metres. This contemporary hotel has some exquisite night views of Hong Kong Park, Central and The Centre.

Given its proximity to Causeway Bay and Victoria Park, it makes sure you are close to the action and at the same time not right in the thick of it, making it a particularly ideal choice for those wanting to experience a different side of Hong Kong.
