Hong Kong suite gets the party started

High fliers jetting into Hong Kong with an eye to painting the town red should check out a glamorous new suite at the Landmark Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong that has been built to entertain. 

The 2,250-sq-ft Entertainment Suite has been designed by award-winning Hong Kong architect and designer Joyce Wang, and costs around HK$98,000 a night ($12,500).

It has cutting edge technology installed, and is dedicated to extravagant entertaining whether that be a wedding proposal, baby shower, bachelor party, product launch, anniversary party or live streaming of international events, the hotel says.

The hotel’s newest and largest suite oozes high-octane glamour, and is a perfect venue for those that want to entertain in style, the hotel says, pointing out that the suite also doubles as a private refuge in the centre of Hong Kong’s art, fashion, and dining district.

At the heart of the suite is a salon with 4-m long ‘Cabinet of Delights’ where guests can find boutique wines on tap, rare vintages selected by Amber restaurant’s expert sommelier, and a mixologist booth. 

Other treats include fine Cuban cigars, snacks, a popcorn machine, exotic teas and coffees, and a crystal vitrine filled with sweet and savoury delicacies created by the hotel’s Michelin-star chef.

In the living area, audiovisuals include a B&O BeoLab sound system and a concealed 160-inch TV with a 5,000 lumens laser projector. A custom-designed coffee table conceals a range of the latest virtual reality and Play Station gaming equipment. 

Also on hand is a reconditioned 1930’s vintage American jukebox for vinyl connoisseurs and an in-suite DJ booth.

Meanwhile, the hotel’s chefs are on hand cook up a storm in a state-of-the-art kitchen and serve guests in a bright and airy dining room that can seat up to 10 diners.

The tranquil master bedroom encompasses its own sitting area and a separate dressing area with walk-in wardrobes. 

Wang’s signature touches are revealed in the cocoon-like headboard and leather padded walls with hand tufted silk rugs adding to the texture-rich interior.

For the perfect night’s sleep, the bedroom “showcases the renowned FreshBed sleep system that uses climate-control technology for tailored temperatures and silent ventilation for purified, allergen-free air, combined with an ergonomic mattress”.

The bathroom features a freestanding oval-shaped bathtub made from one piece of marble complete with a custom-design Champagne caddy. 

The rain-shower’s multi jet system can be fitted with an aromatherapy capsule to infuse the shower experience with naturally reviving or relaxing essential oils.

Wang custom designed all hand-made furnishings, including a series of glass moulded chandeliers, wall finishes in limestone with metal inlay, and acrylic cabinet doors decorated with nature-inspired artwork. 

Should an additional bedroom be required, the suite connects seamlessly with an adjacent guestroom, which is designed in a similar aesthetic, 

The Entertainment Suite marks the culmination of an 18-month renovation that has seen the hotel’s rooms transformed.

“The Entertainment Suite elevates the guest experience by making many forms of entertainment possible in a spectacular private retreat. It is ideal for Oscars-worthy parties, extravagant dinner receptions or the most romantic getaways,” says Torsten van Dullemen, the hotel’s General Manager. “It is also perfect for those seeking a statement space as a showroom, catwalk, social or music venue, or ultra-chic screening or movie set.”

Reservations or enquiries can be made by phone, email, or at the hotel’s website.
