A haven in the bustling city of Hong Kong, The Upper House is a 5-star contemporary hotel, embracing the concept of understated luxury.
Designed by the renowned architect André Fu, the hotel simultaneously exudes modern luxury and sophisticated comfort with its highly refined aesthetics and thoughtfully considered details.
Centrally located yet magically secluded, the Upper House was named to represent a design philosophy of an upward journey from the bustling city to a calming haven.
Taking the journey upwards, the hotel’s 117 studios and suites start on the 38th floor, and are spacious and airy, featuring natural materials, bright woods, and muted fabrics.
But perhaps the highlight of these rooms at the Upper House is the bathroom featuring thrilling views, Italian marble, a limestone bathtub, and a walk-in rainfall shower, providing the utmost tranquility.
Located up on the 49th floor is the Café Gray Deluxe, where breakfast is served every morning with a side of breathtaking views of the Victoria Harbor..
With so many delicious options to choose from, we opted for the Upper East (dim sum, congee, egg noodles) and the Upper West Breakfast (eggs, salmon caviar, fruits, yogurt) – needless to say we were in ultimate #foodheaven!
Lunch, dinner, afternoon teas are also available at this modern European dining spot by Chef Gray Kunz, as well as drinks at the stunning 14m-stone bar.
Across from Café Gray Deluxe is the Sky Lounge, a space to relax and unwind in its cosy atmosphere, surrounded by fireplace and panoramic views.
Another spot for rest & relaxation is down on the 6th floor at the Lawn, where the secluded green space perfectly resembles a beautiful urban jungle. The Upper House offers complimentary yoga classes here at the Lawn, with mats and towels all provided.
Speaking of fitness, the gym is also available onsite with a variety of cardiovascular and weight training equipments.
In and around the Upper House, divine collection of artworks from leading contemporary Asian artists can be found. Original art pieces, sculptures, and a 10-story atrium were carefully chosen and curated to complement André Fu’s concept of serenity.
Above all, it was the impeccable service of the attentive staff members at the Upper House that really made our stay ever so wonderful. From remembering our names and faces to thoughtful gestures, it was evident that the Guest Experiences team was dedicated to providing personalized services to each and every guest.
Thank you Upper House + Swire Hotels for this unforgettable experience.
Until next time!
