We went for high tea in the lobby, as a bucket list must do. The service was excellent, the high tea menu wasn't over the top, but perfect. They had an excellent tea selection. We enjoyed a glass of champagne which was a special treat...More

Tsim Sha Tsui is one of the major tourist and shopping
areas of Hong Kong. With a high concentration of
hotels, retail shops and commercial offices – it’s a
busy and bustling neighbourhood that never sleeps. On
the surface, Tsim Sha Tsui seems to only feature an
abundant number of high-end retail stores selling
designer brands and jewelry, owing to its popularity
with high-budget shopping tours. However, it also

There is nothing more quintessentially iconic of Hong Kong than experiencing the acclaimed Peninsula Classic Afternoon Tea. Served daily in The Lobby, which has long been recognised as one of the most elegant meeting places in Hong Kong, this revered tradition is accompanied by The Lobby Strings, playing live daily. An a la carte menu showcasing authentic Continental and Southeast Asian delights is served throughout the day.
