Located in one of the most historic and cultural parts of town, the newly named Cordis, Hong Kong is part of the landmark inauguration of a new brand by the Langham Hospitality Group. The upscale properties are dedicated to providing more intuitive service, connectivity and a sense of community to all who pass through their revolving doors.
Since its launch, the hotel has been buzzing with a mix of travellers, from corporates to honeymooners and multi-generational families, all enjoying the hotel’s new focus on meeting their holiday expectations. While the neighbourhood is known for its delicious eats, the Cordis houses its own portfolio of top-rated eating venues.
However, you’ll have to drag yourself away from your room first. It’s a hard task with luxurious plush beds and custom pillow selections, designed to give you the ultimate night of comfort. It’s easy to unwind with marble bathrooms and a host of entertainment amenities at your disposal.
If relaxation is on the agenda, head over to the Health Club, an all-encompassing spot to re-energise with a range of spa treatments at the award-winning Chuan Spa, state-of-the-art fitness studio, and rooftop pool boasting views of the dazzling skyline. For a spiritual start to your day, step into the Tao of Tai Chi with Master Cheung Yau Fu.
When you’re ready to leave the hotel, a dedicated concierge team is on hand to plan your perfect itinerary around Hong Kong, providing insights to the best shopping, dining and sightseeing experiences in the area, as well as insider tips such as how to haggle and where to seek out traditional Chinese meals. Join a complimentary tour of the bustling Mongkok Market. Experience the flavours of the market as you roam through stores with fresh produce and tanks filled with live seafood, or head to the Ladies Market to experience the famous bazaar. You’ll have no trouble getting around with a complimentary smartphone loaded with all the necessary apps to make getting around Hong Kong a breeze.
However there really is no need to leave the Cordis – the crown gem in the hotel’s culinary portfolio is, of course, the Michelin-starred Ming Court, an iconic Cantonese restaurant that has garnered countless praise over the years. The dishes served are exquisite – from the traditional Cantonese style roasted meats to the premium abalone and seafood. Meanwhile, the elegant decor is a unique mix of old and new, blending modern marble and gold with old remnants of the past, including antiquities reminiscent of the Ming Dynasty.
If the night calls for something a bit more casual, head to Alibi – Wine Dine Be Social instead, where clinking glasses blend with the merry chatter of guests late into the night. A handsome wood-topped bar is a welcoming place to grab a well-made cocktail or three, perhaps paired with a chilled seafood platter or plate of charcuterie.
Cordis is also home to an extensive collection of contemporary Chinese art. Take a self-guided tour that highlights 21 of the hotel’s 1,500 pieces. As you meander from the ground floor to level 41, you’ll discover artworks that inspire and provoke you.
With limitless options to explore during the day and a restful sanctuary to fall back to at night, there’s no arguing that Cordis, Hong Kong is one of the best bases in the city from which to explore all that Hong Kong has to offer.
