THE FULLERTON OCEAN PARK HOTEL HONG KONG

The Fullerton Pool Suite | The Fullerton Ocean Park

The Fullerton Ocean Park Hotel Hong Kong provides an escapist, tropical island getaway vibe, largely thanks to the impressive island and water views of its south side location, including those from its well situated infinity pool. 

The interiors of this sustainably-minded resort are also insta-inspirational, beginning with the rooms—all of the contemporary guest rooms enjoy majestic sea views—and continuing through the public spaces and restaurants. Nature stimulates the senses at every turn and by association relaxation, which stimulates the holiday feeling.  

Like any good resort, there is a thoughtful mix of engaging offerings.

The culinary minded can dine on fine Cantonese at Jade, with noted chef, Lai Ching Shing, at the helm. Get in touch with the brand’s Singapore roots at Satay Inn, which features an al fresco social space; The Lighthouse Lounge for afternoon tea and in-between moments; and the Lighthouse Cafe for a mediterranean centric indulgence with Asian accents. Joining this lineup later in the year is Giardino, an oceanfront Italian restaurant.  

The active and adventurous guest is well catered to by the F.U.N Desk. Its team of enthusiastic experts curate fun, unique, neighbourhood and/or nature-immersive experiences both on and off site. While fun-seeking families can choose to stay in one of the nine kid-themed rooms, with six themes, including Rainbow Unicorn, Jurassic Submarine and Panda Party. 

There is also a kids’ lagoon and massive indoor kids’ zone to keep the young ones busy and informed (educational aspects too), with adult options ranging from a treatment at the luxury spa (opening soon) to a workout at the well equipped (24-hour) gym. 

ECHELON tip: For the ultimate 5-star stay, book one of the two top-level signature suites. Complete with private pool and expansive entertainers' outdoor terrace, these gorgeous spacious suites are hard to beat.

Also combining luxury and tranquility is the eco-chic The Silveri Hong Kong – MGallery, describing itself as being styled after a modern manor house, situated in Tung Chung, Lantau.  

Blending in with its surrounding landscape of greenery and mountains, The Silveri Hong Kong creates a sense of place in nature. Guests are never far from natural touches, from the enticing outdoor garden featuring winding paths and generous lawns, to the alfresco terraces of its modern bistro, The Enclave. The latter is already considered a brunch hotspot. For cocktails and mesmerising sunsets, The Pavilion bar, also popular for afternoon tea, is the way to go.

Great views are also on offer from the comfort of a suite, and its 12 signature suites feature generous outdoor terraces, each with private plunge pool or outdoor heated Jacuzzi, overlooking Lantau’s verdant scenery. The Silveri Suite provides the greatest privacy and greenest views, from all spaces.  

There is also a 25-metre swimming pool surrounded by swaying palms, a gym with lots of natural light, and yoga or tai chi lawn. 

ECHELON Tip: Ask the team to curate a signature Memorable Moments experience, such as a private helicopter tour of Lantau. 

 

AKI HONG KONG MGALLERY

For something completely different, set among the bustle of Wanchai and providing a stone’s-throw-from-the-action ambience is AKI Hong Kong – MGallery. This modern high rise hotel is the second Hong Kong opening from The MGallery Hotel Collection.  

Featuring lots of glass for light-filled interiors, and employing a smart living concept, the stylish rooms feature a contemporary minimalist aesthetic, with high ceilings, natural wood tones, and mood lighting.  

In line with its individual approach is Tangram, the hotel’s all-day dining restaurant, named after the puzzle of the same name. Guests can begin with the international “interactive breakfast”, enjoy bento boxes for lunch, and wrap up the evening with creative Japas—Japanese meets tapas—menu, paired with a bottle of sake.

Topping the hotel on the 25th floor is Uncle Ming’s whisky bar. Enjoy a nightcap and admire the cityscape and harbour views. An expert is on hand to guide guests on choices from the extensive selection of whisky from around the world. There is also sake, fine wines and champagne, cocktails, and a menu of light fare.  

There is a lean 24-hour gym with expansive views, and a hard workout calls for refuelling with a healthy juice and organic salad or sandwich from The Lobby Lounge. In the evenings this space transforms into an inviting and tranquil spot for a glass of wine, or guests can opt to relax in the Zen garden. If work beckons, an open co-working space is always available. 

ECHELON Tip: With its compact high-rise appearance, playful Japanese cuisine, and whisky/sake bar, there are undertones of a stylised Japan, so embrace it and choose one of the signature Tatami rooms, and drift off to sleep on a luxurious mattress on tatami flooring.
