The Landmark Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong Review:
While in Hong Kong Jacques and I stayed at The Landmark Mandarin Oriental on Queen’s Road. Everything about this place was detailed and convenient. First of all, it’s attached to a luxury mall- I mean… could this be any more perfect? Valentino, Miu Miu, Celine, Fendi, Alexander McQueen. Literally, there is a GUCCI store adjacent to the hotel entrance. In fact, the elevator up to the rooms also goes down, directly into the shopping center.
Although this location is lacking in Harbor views, it instead has unparalleled customer service for which the Mandarin Oriental Group is known. As this is smaller than their regular hotel line, it falls into the boutique category and only has around 100 rooms. The highlight of the room for me was the bathtub for two. After a 15 hour flight, there isn’t much you want to do other than relax. Jacques and I shared a bottle of champagne from the mini-bar and dimmed the lights. Not only was this incredibly romantic but also the perfect way to ease into our new sleep schedule.
We ate breakfast at both Amber and MO. Amber was voted among the most romantic restaurants in Hong Kong. Not only was the decor STUNNING but the service was impeccable and the food was amazing- exactly what you’d expect from a 2 Michelin star venue. I wish we’d had dinner there but our stay was limited. MO was also very good and the breakfast buffet had everything! American breakfast, traditional Chinese breakfast, fresh juice, and even an amazing fruit bar.
Also worth noting is that this hotel is an American Express Fine Hotels and Resorts Property. So if you book with American Express platinum or better you automatically get an early check-in, late check-out, room upgrade (when available) and breakfast for two every morning. We also got an extra $200 food and beverage credit and our champagne from the first night was comped!
The spa was also nice; it was clean, calming, and slightly glam. I especially liked the amethyst crystal steam room. I obviously couldn’t have my phone in their to take a photo but it was pretty cool. A giant geode filled with lilac colored stones vibrating at a totally zen AF frequency surrounded by steam, it was pretty cool. I’d definitely recommend this place and I already have recommended Amber. Next time we are in Hong Kong I want to do dinner there. My mouth is watering already!
My only suggestion would be to have Kombucha in the minibar. haha!
