The Peninsula, located on the Kowloon waterfront, has been welcoming distinguished guests for the best part of 100 years, and, today, its Golden Age of Travel grandeur continues to attract the glitterati.

They come for the white-gloved service, palatial surroundings, dazzling restaurants and some of the most enviable harbour views in the city.

Set the tone for your stay with a Rolls Royce transfer (the hotel has its own fleet, in signature Peninsula Green) – or, if you’re feeling flush, there’s always the helicopter.

More ultra-exclusive experiences are on offer at The Peninsula Academy, which offers guests a range of cultural experiences, from dim sum making classes, to traditional Chinese arts and craft lessons, to tours of the Kadoorie Botanic Gardens.

Surrounding area

The hotels sits squarely in the middle of Tsim Sha Tsui, overlooking the Kowloon Star Ferry piers and Victoria Harbour. TST is a major shopping hub, particularly for Mainland Chinese tourists who come here to buy luxury handbags and designer clothes at Duty Free prices.

The crowds can get overwhelming at times but that’s part of being in Hong Kong and the mild inconvenience is worth it to be in such an exciting locale. There are a number of interesting museums on hand for rainy days.

Please note - we hope to one day have live prices for you, but for now, here are some useful links for you to compare prices...
