At The Hari Hong Kong, expect warm mid-century modern touches, with a material palette that includes timer, linen, velvet, brass and marble
Located fortuitously between Causeway Bay and the Wan Chai district is The Hari Hong Kong, a plush hotel that touts itself as the neighbourhood’s living room. By which The Hari means to be a luxury home away from home for visitors exploring the city.
Like its sister property in London’s Belgravia, The Hari Hong Kong’s 210 rooms, spread over 30 storeys, are designed by renowned interior architect Tara Bernerd. Expect warm mid-century modern touches, with a material palette in guest rooms and suites that includes timer, linen, velvet, brass and marble.
Corner rooms offer great views of the vibrant district, but the suites are where it’s at. The Hari Hong Kong offers three types, all spacious sanctuaries with private terraces that overlook Wan Chai, Causeway Bay, The Peak and Victoria Harbour. The look and feel is more distinctly homely, akin to a well-appointed apartment in the city that serves as a peaceful refuge after a day out. From now till 31 August 2023, The Hari is also offering a complimentary night’s stay with four nights booked.
Any idea of homely comfort is, of course, incomplete without the food to match, and The Hari’s two restaurants offer some top notch fare. There’s the sumptuously old-world Italian Lucciola Restaurant & Bar, helmed by Piedmont-born chef Francesco Gava, that delivers modern Italian classics. The food and drink menu is designed around seasonality and provenance, with wines and produce sourced from various Italian regions.
Up on the second floor is Zoku, a contemporary Japanese restaurant that does away with trappings of zen austerity. Instead, Chef de Cuisine Edwin Guzman serves up vibrant, modern Nikkei cuisine informed by his Peruvian roots. And it’s not all makimono. The Zoku also features innovative cocktails crafted with Japanese ingredients, and fine sake and wine lists—tipples that you can take right outside of the Zoku to an al fresco terrace for some post-meal unwinding.
