Hong Kong's Island Shangri-La

Posted: Dec. 30th, 2009  |  By Katherine Bond
Resort Review: The Island Shangri-La is indeed a little island of respite in Hong Kong’s metropolitan mayhem. A master of Hong Kong hospitality and size with grace, the Island boasts 531 spacious guest rooms and 34 suites. Our guest room offered a well-appointed office desk, a bathroom one could very well live in, and best of all, postcard perfect views of Victoria Harbor. I appreciated our room’s free Wi-Fi, complimentary minibar, and daily fresh fruits, but found Island’s amenities more impressive. The fitness room makes working out an art and the pool, partnered with two Jacuzzis, overlooks the serene Hong Kong Park and neighboring high rises. Book this hotel now with confidence!

Dining at the Island Shangri-La is a treat in itself. Petrus, the Michelin rated French restaurant at the top of the hotel, delights with the fresh creations by Chef de cuisine Frederic Chabbert. Although I could love a three-hour lunch attended by a fleet of elegant servers, I sampled the Island’s modern, worldly Café TOO. With seven “cooking theatres,” an array of international cuisine is performed, one could say, constantly by chefs in this top-notch buffet style café.

Just one more reason to return soon to Island Shangri-La: The Horizon Club is debuting at the end of the year to become Hong Kong’s highest floor executive lounge.
