Hong Kong is well-known for its luxurious offerings and there’s no better time to spoil yourself with a weekend of opulence. See the city from whole new heights, eat the most sumptuous cuisine, and shop for all the lavish designer labels. Hong Kong will have you feeling like royalty in no time.


DAY 1

The Peninsula Hong Kong

AM

Start on a high note, hovering above Hong Kong by helicopter. The Peninsula  hotel’s exclusive ‘flight-seeing’ tour whisks you above the city, offering rare birds-eye views of the spectacular scenery below, complete with pilot commentary.

Duddell’s

Lunch

Don’t let your feet touch the ground — zip across the harbour then head on to Duddell’s in Central for modern Michelin-starred Cantonese cuisine amid fabulously chic surrounds. The weekend dim sum brunch with free-flow bubbly draws city scenesters to the leafy terrace, and the option of a full vegan dim sum menu makes it a rare fruit indeed.

PM

From Duddell’s, it’s a stiletto skip across the street to a world of shopportunity in Central. Start at the ever-fragrant Sino star Shanghai Tang, then nip around the corner to Joyce, a home-grown stable of avant-garde collections on Queen’s Road Central. Directly opposite, LANDMARK  Get me there {{title}} Address {{address}} Website {{website}} More info stacks all the designer big guns from Gucci to Beckham, and one of two Hong Kong branches of Harvey Nichols.

Dinner

With the credit card truly flexed, it’s time to eat. Fine-dining stalwart Amber emerged from an extensive renovation in 2019, swapping the traditional French fare for which it made its name for visionary, ingredient-led gluten and dairy-free menus served in svelte, sinuous surrounds. Healthy eating never tasted quite so good.

DAY 2

K11 Musea

AM

If modern luxury is defined by memorable life experiences rather than price, then taking the  Star Ferry across the harbour is one of the most luxurious things you can do in Hong Kong. Ditch the driver and glide across to Tsim Sha Tsui on the iconic green n’ cream vessels, hands-down the best harbour view and a rare few moments of calm, all for the humble price of around HK$3. After that, take a stroll along the revitalised water-fronting Avenue of Stars, past statues of Hong Kong film stars Bruce Lee and Anita Lui, to the stunning mall, K11 MUSEA .

This gleaming golden emporium showcases 21st century designer retail such as Charlotte Tilbury, Tom Ford and Virgil Aboh's Off White, a MoMA store and the largest branch of Hong Kong concept store Kapok plus dining, arthouse cinema, a dedicated nature garden and collection of contemporary art that rivals any of the city’s galleries.

Lunch

When hunger strikes, choose from the numerous dining options at K11 MUSEA spanning London’s Avobar, Japan’s Happy Pancake and French boulanger celebre Gontran Cherrier, plus noodle joints, burger bars and tea shops aplenty. 

Fivelements Habitat

PM

You’ve seen the sea, supped and shopped, now time to flop. Fivelements Habitat is a serene urban retreat of wellness, yoga and plant-based cuisine in the somewhat incongruous location of Causeway Bay’s Times Square . The multi-sensory gong healing sessions are truly transcendental.

Dinner

Forget vying with the crowds for Hong Kong’s famous night-time razzle-dazzle, nab a coveted corner seat at the sleek Andre Fu designed Café Gray Bar Get me there {{title}} Address {{address}} Website {{website}} More info at the Upper House. Nurse a well-crafted cocktail as you take in front-row views of that skyline.

 

Switching eras, David Tang’s plush, art-endowed China Club Get me there {{title}} Address {{address}} Website {{website}} More info is an ode to 1930s Shanghai, drawing a cosmopolitan crowd with its excellent Cantonese food and hushed, yet anything goes atmosphere. Yes, it’s a member’s club, but chances are you know a member, and if not, a good hotel concierge will sneak you in.

DAY 3

Big Wave Bay

PM

Hong Kong may be one of the most densely populated cities in the world, but it also boasts some of the most secluded islands and beaches. Located on the southeast peninsula of Hong Kong Island,  Big Wave Bay Beach,  and Shek O are two of the most accessible beaches from Central.

A 30-minute drive from Central, Big Wave Bay exudes a relaxed, boho vibe and has just a handful of surf rentals and local eateries. Neighbour Shek O is more popular, and on summer weekends it can feel like half the city is there, but it’s also better served with relaxed seaside dining — beeline to the terrace of perfectly perched Cococabana for Mediterranean food and a chilled glass of wine overlooking the beach.
