Discover the “Art of stay” with an exceptional luxury experience that have been refining since 1865. mylifestylenews explores a crafted staycation getaways at the Langham Hong Kong over the weekend in the newly renovated city club floor styled in the modern and contemporary European elegance……


The Langham, Hong Kong epitomizes timeless European elegance and is located in the heart of the vibrant Kowloon. Situated next to Canton Road in Tsim Sha Tsui precinct, this iconic hotel is surrounded by the international luxury flagship stores and mere minutes away from the historic Star Ferry with glittering Victoria Harbour as its backdrop.


The lobby is a beautiful space, it really sets the tone for what to expect when staying at this hotel and to experience a sanctuary of style and sophistication. It has recently undergone a major rooms and partial lobby renovation, so the stakes have been raised in the competition.


Every Club Floor has a dedicated Experience Manager to look after your needs. Our newly refurbished club floor Grand City View room feature a light, refined scheme with a palette of soft greys, gold and beige that infuses subtle references to 1920’s glamour. The vision of brightness has a very luxurious residential feel comes with a sense that every corner has an air of European flair.


The faux marble fireplace is the centerpiece of the bed/living area and adds that perfect touch, which is highlighted even more by the beautiful wall architrave paneling look. The bathroom is all in grey flecked chic white marble, with a wooden louvre window treatment, you can open the bathroom into the bedroom to let in more natural light, or enclose completely for privacy.


A well crafted work desk, mini-bar cabinet and a chaise longue-style sweeping sofa by the window bay adds another extra dimension, although the view is nothing to speak of. It is the little touches that set the tone for the room, such as the Wedgewood branded chinaware, the cut crystal stemware and even a cocktail shaker to create your own concoctions. Complimentary Valrhona chocolates are offered to have with your coffee or tea as well as the Langham branded Chuan Spa’s amenities for the bathroom which are a cut above some other brands.


The double wardrobe is very spacious and the all the amenities contained therein bathrobes, slippers, etc. are of a high quality to match the luxury of the room. Committed to crafting the art of stay, the hotel features 498 luxurious guest rooms and suites finished with the finest fabrics, hardwood floors and hand-woven carpets, fully equipped with blissful beds, iHome docking stations and wireless broadband internet connection. Indeed, it feels right at home.


The Staycation package receives exclusive benefits to ride with class, dine in style and unwind at ease. Apart from admiring this designer retreat, club members have a wealth of preferential privileges that include continental breakfast, afternoon tea, evening canapés and all-day alcoholic and non-alcoholic refreshments.



The Club Lounge itself is a very intimate and welcoming space, although the low ceilings give one a sense of lesser space, but this was more than compensated for by the overall elegance and design with a great mélange of different design elements smartly divided into a total of seven separate rooms with each area has its own distinct character and design that reflect British royal essence.



Every corner of this space has an air of European flair, from the hand-embroidered wall panels created by a lingerie designer, to the original rent table; a splendid mahogany table which was originally used by English landlords in the 18th century to file receipts of payment.


The all-day champagnes, wines and beers are a wonderful touch, as sometimes, you don’t have time to go to the lounge at cocktail hour and/or prefer a sip of something earlier in the afternoon, to have that choice makes a big difference.



Breakfast is always something to look forward to in a luxury hotel with a very wide selection catering to all international tastes, the pastries are good. Being a Club Floor’s guest on this staycation package means that you can enjoy the quieter surrounds of the Club Lounge on the 11th floor with a much preferred quality of breakfast selections well as the food and beverages. We were left feeling very sated to receive exclusive benefits to ride with class, dine in style and unwind at ease.
