As part of its 95th anniversary festivities, guests at the celebrated The Peninsula Hong Kong have new options to explore. For water lovers, a partnership with historic Star Ferry offers the choice of sailing Victoria Harbour aboard the World Star ship while enjoying a themed afternoon tea, a sunset soirée cruise or an unforgettable wedding voyage.
Guests are also invited to sip from a glass of The Reach, a venerated, 81-year-old single malt whiskey from The Macallan. Regarded as a milestone experience for whiskey collectors, the bottle at The Bar at The Peninsula is one of only 288 worldwide. More impressively, The Peninsula’s bottle is the only one not on the shelf of a private collector. The Reach is served up alongside a curated menu of handcrafted cocktails in the environs of The Bar’s sophisticated club-style setting.
Time your stay for September and the Mid-Autumn Festival and indulge in limited-edition Mooncakes; a six-course dining adventure at Felix; or partake in a tasting of The Peninsula Honey Beer, created from nectar collected from rare native forest trees. Not to miss: dining at the property’s Michelin-starred Spring Moon, where Cantonese fare is the specialty. Or, opt for Parisian dining at Gaddi’s.
And if a mind-body reset is part of your travel goals, The Peninsula Hong Kong also offers a luxury spa with treatments and therapies such as the two-hour Organic Traveller Recovery; one-hour-and-45-minute Mindful Dreams; and the one-hour-and-45-minute Organic Ocean Journey — each featuring the Voya product line, designed to relax and rejuvenate.
