Travel to Hong Kong


Cordis, Hong Kong

24 March 2016

Words: Joe Mortimer / Images: Cordis

Towering over Hong Kong’s traditional Mongkok neighbourhood, Cordis Hong Kong has emerged from a major overhaul looking radiant, with a new name, new look and an art collection worth US$4.5 million. Formerly Langham Place, the hotel’s suites, finished in crisp shades of blue, grey and silver, have dramatic skyline views and lots of little extras, including a fully-loaded smartphone with free international calls.

The 36th floor Club Lounge, fitted out with reclaimed oak floors and modern minimal furniture, looks out over the urban jungle, providing a welcome escape from the bustle of Mongkok’s neon-filled streets. Mediterranean tapas and potent cocktails are served at Alibi, and chef Mango Tsang’s Ming Court vaunts a Michelin star for its superb modern Cantonese cuisine. On the top floor, Chuan Spa has treatments based on traditional Chinese medicine and one of the highest pools in the city.

This is one for well-heeled travellers who value community spirit and authenticity as much as impeccable service.
