Built in 1928 and known to celebrities, top business men and other elite as one of the world's most extravagant and elegant hotels, The Peninsula Hong Kong barely needs an introduction. But for those of us who don't rub elbows with famous socialites and VIP on a regular basis, a short synopsis of just how gorgeous and accommodating this magnificent Hong Kong hotel is is in order. Already a thriving, international city, Hong Kong is an ideal vacation spot for many reasons, and a stay at the Peninsula would only add to the list. Imported marble, vaulted ceilings, crystal chandeliers, gold filigree and exotic flower arrangements are just the beginning to this 5-star hotel and it's beauty. Glitz and grandeur are balanced with an edge of class and sophistication in every nook and cranny of this gigantic beauty. Spacious suites of plush bedding, wrap around windows, heavy drapes and fully equipped living and dining areas and other luxurious amenities, as well as world-glass room service, is just the tip of the ice-berg. If you ever want to venture out of you're gorgeously luxe suite, you'll be met with multiple gourmet restaurants and dining facilities that feature international chefs and scrumptiously made dishes. Not hungry? Peruse the designer label boutiques at the Peninsula Arcade, that include favorites like Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Fendi, Ports 1961, Harry Winston, Cartier, Prada, Hermes and a long list of more well-known luxury names. There are also the best gym facilities and luxurious and relaxing spa centers for guests that feel the want for a little pampering. It's not just the brilliance of crystals, the 5-star food, and the couture-dreamland in the midst of one of the world's most live and exciting cities that makes the Hong Kong Peninsula so amazing; it's the superb and impeccable service from all staff that really sets it above other luxury hotels. If you're in the area and not looking to be an over-night guest, the Peninsula Hong Kong also offers reservations for business meetings, large events and weddings.
