Ease, inspiration, sustainability, views—if these things matter to your HK trip, EAST Hong Kong is a brilliant option. It’s a business hotel that is just as much for creatives, and it’s sunlit guest rooms come with views, and interiors, to die for.
The smoothest paperless check-in presages the hotel’s sleek, modern and professional demeanor. Gadget gurus will love the subtle tech-friendly sensibility of their room. A thriving art program encourages travelers to see the city anew. Permanent art works, of butterflies and leaping fish, convey the transience and vitality of travel. Up on the 32nd floor, Sugar is one of the city’s top spots after dark. Most of all, it’s the views—they’re stunning. Floor to ceiling glass windows provide guests maximum wow. Pick a harbor view room and you’ll wake up to sunrise over Victoria Harbour, featuring sparkling waters, hundreds of boats and sky-rise towers. Urban view rooms deliver a mesmerizing sunset over the city, and a surprising amount of nature. Color us impressed!
Taikoo Shing is a private residential development in Quarry Bay, in the eastern part of Hong Kong Island, created by the supercool Swire Group, who are behind EAST. In fact, Taikoo Shing can be loosely translated as “Swire City.” The 21-hectare estate is full of gardens, malls, and tall buildings. It’s also a sought-after place to live for Japanese and Korean expats, which accounts for the great restaurants of those cuisines in the neighborhood. Farther afield, exploring Quarry Bay is must for any architecture lover or photographer visiting Hong Kong for the first time—especially the colorful courtyards of Montane Mansion. And transit is super convenient to all parts of the city.
