Part of the Pacific Place complex, the Island Shangri-La sits as a sanctuary within the hubbub of Central. A favourite amongst business travellers, around-the-clock service staffs anticipate guest’s needs and spacious, European-style furnished rooms with a hint of Asian accenting give ample space to unwind. An extensive private art collection adorns the public spaces, including the monumental 16-storey tall “Great Motherland of China” silk painting, which presides over the atrium. Magnificent views of Victoria Harbour or the Peak are afforded from the hotel’s lofty position. Numerous dining options such as the elegant French-style of Restaurant Petrus, the Japanese kaiseki of Nadaman and the Michelin-starred Cantonese of Summer Palace give plenty of options to stop in.
