The Landmark Mandarin Oriental is a masterpiece of contemporary design

Featuring the newest designer guestrooms in Hong Kong, the Landmark Mandarin Oriental is a chic, 5-star hotel. It’s located in Central, the heart of Hong Kong’s business, fashion and entertainment district where guests can explore the city’s local favourites and its dynamic nightlife. An ‘urban sanctuary’ is how this supremely metropolitan hotel likes to describe itself. Unlike its nearby big sister – the Mandarin Oriental – the Landmark is boutique-sized, with just 113 guestrooms, but it packs a major punch in both style and food. ”

Location
This really is the epicenter of Hong Kong’s shopping and business district. The Landmark shopping mall is aptly-named: it’s a pivotal point from which covered walkways radiate off to all corners of Central (including to the Mandarin Oriental, a few minutes’ stroll away).You can walk from the hotel to the Airport Express at Hong Kong station without leaving an air-conditioned environment.

Style & character
The sleek entrance to the hotel, all polished wood and curves, is supposed to resemble a yacht. You ascend a short flight of stairs – or a lift for disabled guests – into the lobby leaving behind the surging wave of humanity on Hong Kong’s streets. The small reception area has the fragrant air of a boudoir and is lined with fashion tomes.

Service and Facilities
Pretty faultless. The hotel prides itself on attending to all needs and is noticeably attentive to single travellers. The staff is good at greeting you after a short time in residence. There’s an 18-metre heated indoor swimming pool, a decent-sized gym and a weekly schedule of yoga and Pilates classes. Best of all, it also has an excellent, and enormous, spa on two floors.

Rooms & Suites
Exuding style, serenity, space and a sense of luxury
Mixing cutting edge design and comfort, its spacious rooms and elegant suites offer a fresh take on contemporary style, inspired by our unique urban setting.

As part of the hotel’s first-decade celebrations, there’s been a complete redesign of all the rooms and suites. These are some of the biggest guest rooms (and bathrooms) in the city and the combination of low-key colours, high-end fabrics and streamlined furniture has increased that luxurious sense of spaciousness. Everyone gets a Nespresso machine plus a glass chilled-cabinet (a ‘vitrine’) in which complimentary daily treats from two-Michelin-starred restaurant Amber are safely stored.

All rooms have 48-inch (55-inch in the suites) television screens. The padded, curving headboards – with proper reading lights – contribute to the pleasurable effect of a cocoon.

Food & drink
An exquisite dining experience
With a stunning design and delicious cuisine, the two dining areas – MO Bar and Amber are for sure to dazzle you. MO Bar is very popular with locals as well as guests; it’s on the ground floor, and has a pleasant buzz throughout the day starting with a great breakfast buffet, moving through lunch and afternoon tea and on to a vast selection of cocktails (globally-recognized mixologists are regularly imported). Amber is a Michelin-starred, World’s 50 best-listed restaurant, which serves the sort of divinely-inspired food you never knew your taste-buds desired until you’d sampled it.

Late Night Cocktails – PDT
The hotel has an intimate bar concept in collaboration with the iconic New York cocktail bar, PDT (Please Don’t Tell).
