UPPER HOUSE HONG KONG

August 6, 2017

Watch the walkthrough:

 

THE HOTEL

Walking through the concrete jungle to arrive in Admiralty was quite a scenic amble, and when I got there, the hotel staffers were genuinely gracious, even though it would seem I was not a guest, but there for a visit. We tottered up the escalators and then the lift - it would seem apt for a place called Upper House that everything interesting occurred at least ten floors above ground.

 

THE RESTAURANT & LIBRARY

You can definitely see the harbour from the top, and the afternoon tea was divine. We also ventured into the library, where books on style and all manner of interest proliferated. We hung out at the Cafe Gray Bar, where the view was absolutely gorgeous. One word about the design and decor - architect Andre Fu has definitely got the zen elements down pat. 

THE ROOM

Of course, the coup de grace was the room. I was absolutely in love with it.

 

Out of the window you could see the mountains that range around the city. And inside, you could see yourself staying in for hours on end and never tiring of it.

 

The spacious bathroom, the spacious bed... everything was an antithesis of Hong Kong life, and isn't that what we come here for anyway, to be away from reality? I absolutely loved the subtle aesthetics that decorate the hotel. Oh and did I mention the corridors are as silent as a church? It was almost dystopian. They did a wonderful job bringing in the best of Hong Kong in the modern lines and also the otherworldly quality of luxury hotels into this one place.

 

Truly something out of a Sofia Coppola film - definitely a place to put up a fashion-forward lady.
