Landmark Mandarin Oriental
Home to some of the largest hotel rooms in Hong Kong, this stylish sanctuary, just two minutes’ walk from Lan Kwai Fong (the city’s bustling nightlife nucleus), epitomizes contemporary design. Many of the 113 guest rooms, all with clean lines and neutral tones, contain sunken hourglass tubs and sleek, LCD flat-screen TVs. Visit the sprawling spa, which spans the hotel’s fifth and sixth floors, and choose from one of the most extensive treatment menus in Asia, ranging from Experience Showers (an exhilarating combination of colored lights, therapeutic scents, and cold and warm body jets) to Hamam Scrubs. Chef Richard Ekkebus’ in-house Amber restaurant earned two Michelin stars in 2012 for the modern French menu (don’t miss the duck foie gras). The hotel’s MO Bar serves cocktails and afternoon tea, and eclectic à la carte items including Moroccan chicken and a decadent Wagyu beef burger.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
