While I was in Las Vegas I noticed that every hotel was celebrating Chinese New Year. I was thrilled to see all of the glamorous decorations celebrating the year of the horse, including this mirrored horse at the Bellagio and a merry-go-round made of flowers at the Wynn. I’ve always wanted to visit China, especially Hong Kong. Because of the elaborate displays in Las Vegas I started doing a little research and started crushing on the The Mira Hong Kong.
The owner of The Mira Hong Kong, Martin Lee is 39 and was looking for a fresh new perspective on the Chinese lifestyle. He brought in celebrity lifestyle guru Colin Cowie and spent $65 million renovating the 16-floor property. Lee also teamed up with Miami-based interior architect Charles Allem to create the clean lines of the hotel, which incorporate natural elements and sleek finishes.
The hotel is located in the heart of Tsimshatsui. In addition to it’s 494 guest rooms it’s home to an award-winning 21st century spa. The Mira Hong Kong has been designed to be a peaceful, relaxing environment, a place for reflection. The hotel aims to help guests relax after a day and night in the bustling large city of Hong Kong.
The guest rooms and suites are dressed in red, green, silver or purple, which creatively corresponding to the mood of the guests.
“We want to introduce a new kind of modern cultural lifestyle into Chinese society,” Lee says. “This is much more than just‘ new is better.’ This is about creating a cultural context for all of the changes in retail, hotels, restaurants and the so-called new wave of China that is influencing the world.”
“The Mira Hong Kong brand introduces a chic, upscale hospitality concept designed for tech-savvy design aficionados who appreciate tasteful and stylish interiors and personalized, intuitive service,” says Lee.
I’m very impressed by this hotel, not just by the design but that Lee incorporated lifestyle needs of his guests into the details. I’d love to stay here. Have you been to The Mira Hong Kong. What do you think of the design and the serene atmosphere of the hotel?
