Discreet, elegant and modern, this sleek residence is just a stone’s throw away from Hong Kong Park and the designer boutiques of Pacific Place. Expect not to lift a finger while you’re a guest of the House, as their attentive service and thoughtful design details by Andre Fu cater to your every need. Boasting views of Victoria Harbour and the dense cityscape, a trip to the hotel’s restaurant and bar Salisterra is a must for a sundowner.
Cardholders can take advantage of certain perks when booking one of the hotel’s studios or upper suites through Cathay with a Standard Chartered Cathay Mastercard. Jazz things up with your complimentary bottle of Roquette & Cazes wine and specially curated Cathay Pacific x LAIBA cocktails. And in the morning, take advantage of the hotel’s room service and enjoy your breakfast in bed with complimentary in-room dining credit.
Once you’ve checked in and enjoyed the best the hotel has to offer, stroll (or hop in a cab) over to Wan Chai for an intimate dinner at Maison ES – a quaint neighbourhood French bistro helmed by Chef Esther Sham. Treat yourself to their sumptuous five-course tasting menu – or for a truly lavish experience, opt for all eight courses instead.
Feast on extravagant seafood dishes such as steamed flower crab and egg custard, Binchotan-grilled eel served with Oscietra caviar and sweet corn ragout, and geoduck & uni linguine, before finishing with an elevated Hong Kong classic: baked milk-tea French toast. Wine pairings are available for each individual course, carefully chosen by the restaurant to complement and enhance the flavours of each dish.
Earn 1 for every HKD4 spent when you flash your Cathay membership QR code in our app (where you can also choose to pay with Miles Plus Cash) - and for an extra 25, book your table through the Cathay App too.
There’s a reason Ascot Chang remains one of the most renowned names in tailoring in Hong Kong, with decades of experience under their well-fitted belt. The tailor blends Shanghainese and Hong Kong tailoring traditions: redeem your miles to book an appointment to be measured for your own bespoke suit, cut by masters of their craft. There are a number of shops across Hong Kong, but their outpost at The Landmark is an easy taxi or MTR ride from The Upper House.
