Peninsula Suite at The Peninsula Hong Kong











The Peninsula Suite has one master bedroom with an en suite bathroom, connected to a fully equipped fitness room, a private study, a private and intimate dining room, a fully equipped kitchen, a spacious living room, a formal dining/reception area and a meeting room. The balcony gives commanding views of the harbour. There is a private entrance hall and a security/valet station. For a large entourage, it can be converted to a seven bedroom suite by connecting adjoining rooms and closing off the private corridor, thus occupying the entire floor.

On entering the Suite, guests pass through a lobby finished in the same stone as the reception lobby downstairs. To one side, there is a meeting room for up to 10 people with conference hook-up facilities and, on the other, a guest cloakroom in onyx marble. The centerpiece is the entertainment area with its double height ceiling, floor to ceiling windows and black granite balcony reminiscent of The Peninsula’s original balconies. Interior wall finishes are kept elegant and deceptively simple using a rare plaster treatment which creates finishes as smooth as glass.

From here, guests step up into a single height dining area defined by balustrading in gold leaf and a sculptured carpet with stone surround. A baby grand and large laquered table are the two main pieces in this area. Wall coverings in both the living and bedroom areas are in gold silk, hand-painted in a floral pattern on site. The period-style Taiping carpets were hand woven in China. The master bathroom is a grander version of the other suite bathroom with the addition of a steam room and a total of four TVs to watch from various vantage points in the bathroom. The marble is a golden onyx with black granite contrasts. The study is paneled with polished rosewood and enjoys the unusual additions of a telescope and weather station.

    Anyone who can afford these types of suites would need at least three bedrooms for both genders of children in separate bedrooms but also we would need room to spread out shopping bags. A kitchenette is a must. This is the only listing I have seen with any common sense about the end user. Most suites are static one bedrooms with needless tchotchkes and an oversize dining room. I think an in suite office area with fax and computer and printing machines are also a must. I would also like to see rooftop pools done away with. I don’t mind looking down at a pool area several floors below but I certainly don’t want the pool directly over my suite instead a rooftop garden large enough for a stroll and shaded seating would be nicer.

    The Presidential Suite has a very ugly bedroom making the lesser suites seem more attractive.
