Suited at the heart of the Island East business hub, one of Hong Kong’s best planned and established business districts, its convenient location and availability of diversified office spaces make it a popular choice for hundreds of local and international businesses, including Fortune 500s financial, advertising, media and publishing companies and creating a neighbourhood vibe to the area.
Designed by award-winning Hong Kong based architect and interior design studio CL3 Architects Ltd, EAST was created with every attention given to physical comfort as well as comfort of the senses to create a balance of the body and soul, the yin and yang. Contemporary art installation and design elements are found everywhere in the hotel including this "Leaping Fish" hanging feature.
"The Tree of Life" wall behind the front desk.
The huge "Bird Nest" is the sign of coming home and welcome back that you won't miss upon arrival. All artworks express nature, youth and vitality in line with the modernity of the surroundings including the use of bamboo for birdcages at the lobby, ground floor and first floor.
Arriving at EAST Hotel Hong Kong is simple and easy with the great public transport in Hong Kong and sits atop Tai Koo station. Paperless check-in system is enhanced here as most information was pre-registered upon confirmation of the reservation, so you can get to your room quickly. When you see the view from your room, you are pleased they take less time at the front desk and immediately blown away by the Harbour front corner room. To our delight, we were upgraded to the best Harbour View Suite on the 30th floor. The 60 sqm suite has a jaw-dropping view of Hong Kong’s busy harbor, with the incredibly high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows on two sides. The design is minimalist chic, light woods tone and bright marble, the room is flooded with natural light with the uninterrupted view. The suite room was just picture perfect and comfortable that you may even want to consider spending more time in it instead.
Design elements are found everywhere at EAST Hotel Hong Kong, it doesn’t seem stopping. Bubble chairs in each suite is hung from the ceiling in one corner to unwind yourself while enjoying the view and perhaps sunset. You can also make friends with the in-suite limited edition resin dinosaur - Dino! The figurative dinosaurs in acid colours of orange, turquoise, green and yellow only available in the suites inject brightness, warmth and a touch of humour into the spaces. Love it!
The king beds are absolutely heavenly, with gorgeous linens and simple to use bedside controls, waking up in the morning and flicking a switch opens the blinds to that million dollar view before you even get out of bed, another heavenly thoughtful design. The bathroom is equally sleek and chic in design, with no expense spared. There are beautiful Elemis amenities, his and hers vanities, a walk-in rain shower and inviting bathtub that allow you to enjoy the view while soaking oneself or just enjoying a great shower experience for relaxation. Space is essential here.
