Tango Diva : Travel Stories for Women, by Women

Overview:

You don’t need to be a celebrity to feel like one at this magical hotel icon. The LUXE MANOR Hong Kong (better known in circles as simply “Deluxe Manor”) lives up to its reputation as a hip luxury property. Surreal and Sensuous best describe this small boutique hotel in the heart of Kowloon’s Tsim Sha Tsui district. At first glance, the exterior is simple and unassuming. But enter the lobby and you are transformed by artistry and special design indulgences. Mirrored walls reflecting dramatic crystal chandelier lighting and a rich palette of gold, magenta, violet and black create an opulent regal atmosphere. The intricate mosaic floor and stylishly outrageous custom furniture pieces are signature touches that make the Luxe Manor a destination rather than simply a hotel. But as with any celebrated hotel property, true luxury and excellence reach beyond the four walls of the guest room. It is the service and staff that make the difference. And, it is here that the property excels with growing accolades every year.

The Luxe Manor, a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, holds a special honor as Hong Kong’s very first designer (opened December 2006) boutique hotel. The rooms, on every level, are unique and inviting. Avant Garde Aficionados will love every detail. The hotel boasts six luxury themed suites that are definitely over-the-top with lavish decor and names like Liaison, Mirage and Safari.

The location, close to Hong Kong’s best shopping and entertainment will also not disappoint. The property is just minutes from a MTR/Subway stop (Tsim Sha Tsui Station) with easy access to the Ocean Terminal, the Star Ferry and other points of interest.
