Let's start from the very beginning, shall we? The lobby itself will instantly assail your senses with all kinds of excitement - from the changeable plant decor to the heavy French sophistication scent that imbue the halls, you know you are at a classically haute hotel that has been a longstanding favourite for decades. There is really nothing surprising here - you can expect excellent service and attentive staffers, and with it, the age-old classic design of the Grand Hyatt chain.
Having said all that, I have yet to step through the threshold of a room here in Grand Hyatt Hong Kong, but what I can tell you is that the Plateau Spa is certainly one of the best in Hong Kong. Spas are scarce here in this bustling city, and if this comes as a huge surprise, imagine how shocked I was to learn that I can only count two or maybe three on my hands to be the best, and worthy of another trip. As you can see in the video, Plateau Spa is absolutely celestial. Rapture can be found within the confines of the spa room with your selected massage, where you can also find replete with a bathtub and other paraphernalia, like the welcome drink and farewell tea, to complete your holistic journey. Then, when you are in need of some air, you can also head out to the terrace, where the spectacular view of Victoria Harbour is yours to admire for hours on end.
THE DINING EXPERIENCE
And last but not least, I loved One Harbour Road, a Shanghainese cuisine restaurant in the establishment that so beautifully outdone itself with excellent service, beautiful designs for cutleries, and dishes that are delicate yet classic Chinese. The idea was to bring guests back to the golden era of Shanghai in the 50s, and I think they achieved it in a subtle yet successful manner.
