Expert Review

With tree-like columns in the lobby and five essential Chinese elements represented in the 393 rooms in the form of fire, red and forest green color schemes, huge windows that frame the sky, aquariums imbedded in the walls (in the Extreme WOW suites), and lacy leaf filigree patterns gracing the borders of mirrors and pillows, the W is a nature-inspired oasis. When it opened in August 2008, the tranquil property was a welcome addition to hectic Hong Kong’s slick hotel scene. Names leave little to the imagination, so WET (the pool) and SWEAT (the gym) speak for themselves, and it doesn’t take much to realize that KITCHEN is the all-day diner and FIRE is where you go for fine, evening dining to the tune of steak and seafood. Bliss is not your usual spa with tranquil meditation music. Instead expect jazzy blues and movies-while-you-manicure that keep spa-goers relaxed while enjoying a Ginger Rub, Hangover Herbie, Betweeny Wax, or Triple Oxygen Treatment.
