Island Shangri-La Hong Kong

Island Shangri La Hong Kong

I’ve been slowly making my way through all my content from the hotels I’ve stayed at during my trips to Hong Kong so if you need to know where to stay in Hong Kong then subscribe to get updates for all my travel pieces. During my August trip I was invited by the lovely team from the Island Shangri La to stay at their property.Island Shangri La Hong Kong You can imagine my excitement when they told me that they’d upgraded me to a suite that gave my man and I so much room we didn’t know what to do with it. The suite was literally bigger than 50% of the apartments in the city and had panoramic views back across Victoria Harbour of Kowloon side.

The property is conveniently located above Pacific Place shopping plaza and if you’re a brand whore without the budget like myself then you’ll be in wonderland when you walk through the doors – even if it is just window shopping. Even more convenient is that the hotel is located on top of Admiralty station, which means taking the MTR is the quickest and easiest way to get around. I’m generally allergic to taking public transport but for some reason Hong Kong is the only city where I don’t mind walking aimlessly. If you stay here, you’ll know surely enough how convenient it really is. I purchased an octopus card on my recent trip, which I saw as my right of passage into becoming a true Hong Kong local.

Island Shangri La Hong KongOur room had traditional oriental furnishings and was equipped with a huge plate of desserts and fruit on arrival – because my waistline needed more assistance in its growth – ha! Spoilt rotten with travel ranges of La Prairie skincare inside the room and breakfast spreads that made all my friends consider un-friending me on Facebook. We were also treated to a dining experience at Petrus – one of the more traditional options of dining that is offered in the city that offers both an unrivalled view and food to compliment. We had a lovely sommelier pairing wines with all our courses that saw me somewhat inebriated by the time we reached dessert. Island Shangri La Hong Kong

Now, my favorite part – the pool. Bonus points for this place because it’s outdoors and actually has a deep end of the pool rather than having kid friendly depths throughout. The perfect spot to retreat in the 30+ degree heat and humidity that we were experiencing during our stay. We ventured out one morning to do the Dragons Back hike and there was nothing more refreshing than to dive straight into that pool when we got back sweaty and exhausted.  

You all must realize by now that I partner with a lot of hotels and the most important part of each stay is the level of service that you receive and these guys have been nothing short of exceptional. From the team who received me as I got out of the car to the lovely bouquet of flowers awaiting me in the Rolls Royce as I bid them adieu

If anyone is heading to Hong Kong in the near future and need recommendations then feel free to hit me up with any questions! I’ll be your private travel agent.
