Landmark Mandarin OrientalThis contemporary hotel in the financial and luxury heart of Central, Hong Kong, goes above and beyond five-star requirements. The design juxtaposes marble, dark wood, and light leather with pops of gold and statement art pieces such as an installation of 4,320 copper rods that shoot down from the ceiling of Amber restaurant like a chandelier on steroids. Amber has other claims to fame, including two Michelin stars and a seven-year streak on San Pellegrino’s list of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants (gaining the number 2 spot in 2016). The spa is something to write home about, too. It covers two floors and features a Turkish hammam, Moroccan rasul, Roman laconium, and glittering steam rooms with seats that encircle an amethyst crystal. There’s even a celebrity nail stylist from France who’s made his home at the hotel.
Surrounded by some of the biggest names in fashion, the Landmark draws a stylish crowd and often hosts fashion-related events. In 2013, MO Bar put on a high tea for which it crafted pastries to look like stilettos and handbags from a Jimmy Choo collection. It has also booked live performances by the likes of Alicia Keys, and hosts the Masters of Mixology cocktail extravaganza each year.
