A chic retreat for Hong Kong’s upper echelon.
With its understated, designer-Zen décor and urban residential mood, The Upper House makes for a discreet, relaxing home-away-from-home in Hong Kong. Subdued tones and natural materials are complemented by tasteful works of art, the most notable being the ten-story sandstone sculpture/water feature in the atrium. Studios, suites and penthouses come with iPod touch, Wi-Fi and luxury bedding, but because accommodations start on the 38th floor, harbor and island views are the highlight. Among the hotel’s features: a sixth-floor lawn dappled with bean bags, Café Gray Bar with a fourteen-meter-long bar and the Sky Lounge overlooking The Peak. Café Gray Deluxe serves dishes that emphasize local produce.
