The Landmark Mandarin Oriental in Hong Kong has unveiled the hotel’s new Entertainment Suite.
Designed by award-winning Hong Kong-based architect and designer, Joyce Wang, with cutting edge technology installed, the 2,250-square foot suite is dedicated to extravagant entertaining whether that be a wedding proposal, baby shower, sophisticated bachelor party, exclusive product launch, memorable anniversary party or live streaming of key international events.
The hotel’s newest and largest suite oozes high-octane glamour, a perfect venue for those that want to entertain in style. The suite also doubles as a private refuge in the centre Hong Kong’s art, fashion, and dining district.
At the heart of the suite is a salon with 4-meter long ‘Cabinet of Delights’ where guests can find boutique wines on tap, rare vintages selected by Amber restaurant’s expert sommelier, and a mixologist ‘booth’. Other treats include fine Cuban cigars, snacks, a popcorn machine, exotic teas and coffees, and a crystal vitrine filled with sweet and savoury delicacies created by the hotel’s Michelin-star chef.
In the living area, audiovisuals include a B&O BeoLab sound system, a concealed 160-inch (13ft x 11.5ft) TV screen with a 5000 lumens laser projector. A custom-designed coffee table conceals a range of the latest virtual reality and Play Station gaming equipment. A reconditioned 1930’s vintage American jukebox for vinyl connoisseurs and an in-suite DJ booth will make parties unforgettable.
Guests can engage hotel chefs to prepare private dining from a state-of-the-art kitchen to be served in a bright and airy dining room that can seat up to 10 diners.
The tranquil master bedroom encompasses its own sitting area and a separate dressing area with walk-in wardrobes. Wang’s signature touches are revealed in the cocoon-like headboard and leather padded walls with hand tufted silk rugs adding to the texture-rich interior.
For the perfect night’s sleep, the master bedroom showcases the renowned FreshBed sleep system that uses patented climate-control technology for tailored temperatures and silent ventilation for purified, allergen-free air, combined with an ergonomic mattress.
The spacious bathroom features a freestanding oval-shaped bathtub made from one piece of marble complete with a custom-design Champagne caddy. The rain-shower’s multi jet system can be fitted with an aromatherapy capsule to infuse the shower experience with naturally reviving or relaxing essential oils.
Wang custom designed all hand-made furnishings, including a series of glass moulded chandeliers, wall finishes in limestone with metal inlay, and acrylic cabinet doors decorated with nature-inspired artwork. The suite connects seamlessly with an adjacent guestroom, which is designed in a similar aesthetic, should an additional bedroom be required.
The Entertainment Suite marks the culmination of an 18-month renovation programme that has seen the hotel’s entire room inventory transformed.
”The Entertainment Suite elevates the guest experience by making many forms of entertainment possible in a spectacular private retreat. It is ideal for Oscars-worthy parties, extravagant dinner receptions or the most romantic getaways,” says Archie Keswick, the hotel’s General Manager. “It is also perfect for those seeking a statement space as a showroom, catwalk, social or music venue, or ultra-chic screening or movie set.”
