As you might discover in my earlier weblog entries, I’m an enormous fan of Shangrila inns and resorts! My current keep in Shangrila Mactan sealed my loyalty to the chain as they at all times exceed my expectations. I initially booked my resort someplace in Wanchai however switched to Kowloon Shangrila on the final minute. With an ideal location in Tsim Sha Tsui East and extremely spacious rooms in comparison with Hong Kong requirements, I can say that Kowloon Shangrila is certainly the very best worth 5 star resort within the metropolis.

Kowloon Shangrila Resort – Tsim Sha Tsui Location
I tremendous love the placement of Kowloon Shangrila! The resort is positioned within the quieter aspect of Tsim Sha Tsui however solely 5 minutes stroll away from all of the Kowloon motion. Every part from eating places, outlets, parks, star ferry station, avenue of stars to MTR are all inside 5 to fifteen minutes stroll radius from the resort. If you will ask me the place is the very best place to remain in Hong Kong, I’m voting for Kowloon aspect arms down. That is truly my first time to remain in Tsim Sha Tsui and I discover it extra handy than staying in Hong Kong Island. Tsim Sha Tsui is a really energetic place and you may nonetheless discover one thing to do even after 10 pm, be it a stroll alongside avenue of stars or a mid night time snack in a neighborhood restaurant. Transportation to and from airport can also be a breeze as A21 airport bus cease is simply 5 minutes stroll away from Kowloon Shangrila.
As standard, the service of Kowloon Shangrila exceeds expectations however what units this resort aside is that they deal with base members of Golden Circle very nicely. Reception was variety sufficient to examine us in at 11:30 am with no questions requested. Our request for 3:30pm late take a look at was likewise granted with no additional cost. We have been welcomed to our room with an enormous plate of fruits which was replenished every day.
I used to be ecstatic after I entered my room because it’s precisely what I requested prematurely. Non-smoking, two large beds with a beautiful partial harbour view. The deluxe room could be very cozy and spotlessly clear. I discover the toilet very sensible with a rain bathe as a substitute of bath. The room measurement is sort of beneficiant at 42 sqm, double the dimensions of typical Hong Kong room. The place else in Hong Kong can you discover this room measurement? I’ll undoubtedly be again!
The Horizon Membership Lounge
We have been very lucky sufficient to have been upgraded by Shangri-la with complimentary Horizon Membership lounge entry and day by day breakfast. Now I get hooked to resort lounges! The Horizon Membership in Kowloon Shangri-la is among the greatest I’ve been. The service is improbable and the folks manning the membership are at all times keen to assist. The lounge opens towards an expansive lovely view of Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong island and is breathtaking throughout night time time.The meals high quality is high notch. Each afternoon, I’m at all times eagerly ready for the connoisseur sandwiches, my favourite of which is the salmon sandwich. Throughout early evenings, gentle however high-quality finger meals are served. Drinks each alcoholic and non-alcoholic are served by means of out the day. Since we’re non-alcoholic drinkers, my brother drowned himself with Nepresso espresso, I drowned myself with Evian water. General, I feel the Horizon Membership in Kowloon Shangri-la is an effective worth for cash which I’m keen to personally spend for. If you wish to guide Horizon Membership rooms, I like to recommend you to guide by means of Agoda the place the membership rooms with free lounge entry and breakfast price solely about USD125.00 extra.

We explored the encircling space of Kowloon Shangri-la and located that there are a fairly numerous high-end eating places within the close by buildings. Since we’re on the lookout for an genuine gap within the wall Cantonese restaurant, we adopted the place the employees usually eat and located Chao Zhou Restaurant tucked within the basement of the constructing throughout.

That is the foremost purchasing road in Hong Kong promoting all types of stuff from clothes, medicines to electronics. Since it’s not our intent to do purchasing in Hong Kong, we simply window shopped. For me, Nathan Street is just too crowded with folks, endlessly busy from day to nighttime. Regardless of of the maddening crowd, I nonetheless like this road as this showcases the actual Hong Kong.
