We take you inside Hong Kong’s sustainable luxury hotel, Hotel ICON.
Hotel ICON is unlike any other place you have visited before. It’s a cornucopia of client-friendly benefits such as, the charming welcome you receive when you first arrive to the hotel; by the attentive staff that can be spotted in their immaculate brown uniforms, to the conscious-living ethos, that they hold so dear to their heart.
Oh and did we forget to mention, that most of the highly experienced appearing staff members are actually students from the local School of Hotel and Tourism Management at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Which is all part of their brand’s mission to provide opportunities and nurture the young hospitality specialists of tomorrow.
In addition, the modern and luxurious establishment is also known for it’s environmentally aware behaviour, as the hubs owners believe it is important to reduce their carbon footprint; and have since introduced only electric transportation, including the first electrical hotel shuttle bus in Hong Kong. However if you wanted to travel in style, then guests can alternatively be collected from Hong Kong International Airport in a Tesla Model S or BMW i3.
When strolling in the corridors of the contemporary space, it won’t be unusual for your mind to believe that you are in a yearlong art gallery, as over one hundred talented artist works have being showcased and compiled by the award-winning visionary Freeman Lau.
On the chance that you want to explore your surrounding then the Sai Kung Peninsula Hike is suggested, as if you take the route that passes the High Island Reservoir and Long Ke Wan (which has been named two of Hong Kong’s best scenic sites), then you will be able to see the breath-taking views of the hexagon volcanic columns of High Island. To follow that journey, a relaxing and tranquil treatment at the Angsana Spa. We recommend the Dream massage, will work on all the tight spots in your body, all thanks to the warm sesame oil used to relax the muscles.
And to satisfy your palate, you have the choice of deciding between three award-winning restaurants. We commend trying the Dim sum for an authentic taste of Hong Kong, with the succulent crispy five-spice sliced Angus beef brisket or the delicious braised pumpkin soup with wild mushroom and truffles (suitable for vegetarians). Topped off with their exquisite Chinsese-inspired desserts curated by the executive chef Danny.
The Home away from home, tends to be filled with various guests seeking a seamless escape or a bleisure trip. So we would advice that you visit the hotel in between their busiest period which tends to be around January, April, October and December. The hotel is also currently running a 30% offer until the end of August when booking directly through their website – you can thank us later.
