If you didn’t guess, you’re off to Hong Kong.
Specifically the Kerry Hotel, coming in at sixteen stories, with a stunning waterfront infinity pool, rooftop DJs, and plenty to consume. As these pictures confirm, it’s now open and looking good on Victoria Harbour.
A couple things to know: the spa likely won’t open until August, and The Dockyard—an upscale food stall-type situation with a pop-up kitchen—is still a few weeks out. So you will have something to look forward to if you’re not leaving for Hong Kong tonight.
Whenever you do arrive, you’ll occupy a room with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the harbour. Or if you’re in the Presidential Suite, you’ll have an outdoor terrace and a personal bartender. Assuming you want one.
As for activities, there’s Hung Tong for modern Chinese (translation: barbecued prime Iberico pork), the Lobby Lounge for cognac-and-yuzu cocktails and a rooftop bar for DJ-driven frivolity.
There’s also an entire city out there. If you get stuck.
