Review of Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong

Hong Kong boasts some of the finest hotels in the world and they do not come any better than the Four Seasons Hotel, Hong Kong. Ask any frequent traveller for the names of the best luxury hotel brands and guaranteed, Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts will feature prominently. Four Seasons do luxury and service so well; it’s ingrained – and unthinkable to them not to do their best.

It may come as no surprise that the award-winning 399-guestroom – including 54 suites - Four Seasons Hotel, Hong Kong is pretty much as good as it gets for both business and pleasure travellers.

The hotel boasts an incredible SEVEN Michelin stars – three each for Lung King Heen (Cantonese) and Caprice (French) and one for Sushi Saito – which magics up some of the finest sushi outside Japan.

The hotel has an Executive Club Lounge on the 45th floor – which boasts stunning views over Hong Kong, two outdoor swimming pools, a fitness centre and a spa & wellness centre. The vistas from the infinity pool at Four Seasons Hotel, Hong Kong are truly spectacular.

Location

In a city like Hong Kong, location matters and again, the Four Seasons Hotel, Hong Kong ticks all the right boxes. Looking out over Victoria Harbour from one side and the heart of Hong Kong Island on the other, the hotel is part of the International Finance Centre complex in the city’s Central district.

It is connected via air-conditioned walkways to the IFC Shopping Mall, the piers for the Central and Star ferries, the Central business district, the Macau ferry terminal as well as the Airport Express and Central MTR subway station.

Central district shops are but a short walk away whilst Victoria Peak is just 5 kilometres away.

Accommodation

With 345 guest rooms and 54 suites across 45 stories, each spacious room – some of the largest in Hong Kong - features floor to ceiling windows offering sweeping views overlooking either Victoria Harbour or the city.  Several rooms have also been adapted for guests with mobility issues.

The property has recently embarked on a comprehensive enhancement programme phased throughout 2021 and each guest room reflects today’s preferred modernism sensitively interwoven with the unique culture and history of Hong Kong. Modern furnishings are crafted with classic detailing and Chinese architectural elements with traditional landscapes and patterns inspired by Chinese artists. State of the art technology is of course incorporated as a given and there’s the usual toys - Nespresso, ergonomically designed workspaces, built in LCD televisions in the bathrooms, L’Occitane and Bulgari toiletries, to name but a few.

Attention to detail is absolute here and the hotel even offers a Sleep Well programme to ensure you feel super-charged and ready for the day with offerings such as a sleep therapist, Singing Bowl sound therapy for relaxation, the ultimate bath time as part of a ritual and a special Sleep food menu prioritising health and wellbeing. The hotel’s Simmons beds are also customisable allowing you to choose your preferred level of firmness whilst on the pillow front, there is a choice of eight different types including a maternity one. An urban sanctuary indeed.

The largest suite is the Presidential, situated on the 43rd floor and offering those amazing views over the harbour and Kowloon. It features a grand foyer entrance with an informal sitting area and a separate study, a dining room for 10, a marble bathroom and a separate guest powder room. Decorated in soft natural hues accented by wood and silk panelled walls, the Presidential Suite offers 319 square metres of space – certainly enough room to impress.

Service & Facilities

One of the best aspects of this hotel is the impeccable service – just sit back and allow yourself to be pampered, with discreet staff anticipating your every need almost before you knew it yourself.

Another aspect of the property which is very popular amongst the cognoscenti has to be the exclusive Executive Club Lounge located on the 45th floor - a tranquil weekend-only retreat from the busy city streets below. It features a stunning wraparound balcony, offering views out over the harbour and Kowloon.  This 24-hour lounge allows suite guests - and those who pay a premium - to enjoy drinks and snacks all day long, the one-hour use of a boardroom and a complimentary garment pressing for up to six garments per day. Having Executive Club Lounge is a boon. 

For relaxation, there is a 24-hour fitness centre, The Spa and Nail Bar, a spa featuring personalised treatments in your own spa suite, and four pools – a lap pool, a whirlpool and a plunge pool. The pièce de resistance however is the infinity pool appearing to spill over the edge of the sixth-floor roof deck with panoramic views over Victoria Harbour and underwater speakers playing music whilst you swim. There is Tai Chi at the weekend, meditation consultations, Gong baths and vibrational sound therapy, mindfulness workshops and private yoga available.

Little VIPs are well looked after too with a kid’s playroom, children’s menus, in-room virtual kids’ activities, child-sized robes and toiletries, special interest classes with experts and complimentary infant amenities such as nappies and blankets.

Style

With an unbeatable harbour-front position, this Four Seasons property is Hong Kong at its glamorous best and its class is evident as soon as you step over the threshold into the three-story high, light filled lobby. Expect to mingle with the city’s elite and to be treated like a VIP yourself as soon as you enter the building.

The Four Seasons, Hong Kong opened in September 2005 – part of the International Finance Centre (IFC) complex. It is attached to an upmarket mall which hosts a plethora of luxury brands.

Restaurants & Bars

Seven Michelin stars – eight dining & drinking options.

Including a wide ranging in-room dining menu, the Four Seasons Hotel, Hong Kong allows just about every taste, preference and palate to be catered for.

The three Michelin-starred Caprice offers a classic French savoir-faire whilst its adjacent and intimate Caprice Bar enjoys an extensive wine list – 1400 bottles, mainly Gallic - and a range of freshly imported French cheeses. Chef Guillaume Galliot takes you on a journey through France – with tongue-tazzling effect.

Chef Tak was the first Chinese chef to be awarded three Michelin stars. Not only are his creations at Lung King Heen superb – he is a thoroughly wonderful person as well.  Lung King Heen is known for the calibre of its seafood and dim sum. It is easy to see .. taste .. why Lung King Heen has held its stars for over a decade.  

The one-starred Michelin Sushi Saito meanwhile is a tranquil restaurant overlooking the city skyline celebrating the very best of market fresh fish available, handpicked by Chef Takashi Saito every morning. Tempura Uchitsu meanwhile is based up on the 45th floor enjoying beautiful skyline views over the city. This 16-cover restaurant specialises in the traditional Japanese cooking methods Edomae Tempura and Tempura Omakase. 

The neo-classical bar ARGO – a cocktail bar driven by innovation and the world’s best spirits -  Hong Kong-ese Manhattan always goes down well.

For those who like to see and be seen, The Lounge off the lobby is the perfect place for international cuisine - whilst the Pool Terrace offers light meals, healthy smoothies and frozen cocktails overlooking Victoria Harbour. There’s the Gallery for Asian-inspired comfort food.

Finally – room service. If you have a view of the Harbour and it is bucketing down with rain, there is nothing better than a hearty breakfast delivered to your door – to be enjoyed while you take in the spectacle.

Sustainability

Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong promotes and increases environmental awareness among employees and the property is going green, heading towards being a sustainable hotel. Energy saving initiatives include installing air-conditioning with variable speeds, using energy saving light bulbs throughout the hotel and having thermal covers for the outdoor swimming pools and whirlpool.

Recently, all the Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts located in Asia Pacific have partnered with ecoSPIRITS to reduce single use glass waste and carbon footprint – the first hotel group to pioneer low carbon, low waste spirits on a continent-side scale. The partnership is expected to eliminate tens of thousands of single use glass bottles and many tons of carbon emissions per year once fully implemented. ecoSPIRITS Forest programme will also plant one indigenous tree in a reforestation tract of the Kalimantan rainforest area in Borneo, Indonesia, expecting to plant several thousand trees on behalf of the group in the next 12 months.

What They Love

  • Reimagined: 2021 was an exciting year for Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong as it heralded a new era of hospitality with the transformation of our guest rooms and suites, the lobby area, as well as the introduction of our destination bar ARGO and lobby café Gallery, joining the Hotel’s acclaimed Michelin-starred dining collection. The full transformed Hotel continues to reinvent luxury travel and will unveil more exciting projects to entice leisure and business travellers alike.
  • An Urban Oasis with Infinity Pools: The Spa at Four Seasons is the pioneer of cultivating a wellness centric community through its holistic spa programmes curated by Dr Tania Bardhan and the resident healers. It’s rare to find two large outdoor pools in an urban hotel, and Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong offers both an indulgent lap pool and an infinity pool that create a breathtaking escape in the middle of the city, yet away from it all. Guests can dip into the infinity pool all year round as it is heated and also fitted with underwater speakers, all with front row views of the stunning Victoria Harbour. 
  • Old Town Central: The Hotel is a stone's throw away from one of the most dynamic districts in the city - Old Town Central, Tai Kwun and the lively Soho neighbourhood. The best local experiences wait to be unfolded through the hidden nooks and one can immerse in the best of Hong Kong culture, food and arts.
