In the south of Hong Kong, facing Lamma Island, the Wong Chuk Hang neighbourhood is gradually turning into a cultural and artistic hotspot, with art galleries, creative agencies and trendy coffee shops. This is where Ovolo Southside set up home, creating the first boutique hotel of the “Pearl of the East”, using an old industrial building as its base – a rare fact in a metropolis where skyscrapers grow like grass.
Each of the 23 floors was arranged with a New York mindset: incredible ceiling heights, large picture windows, works of art scattered here and there, stylish furniture of modern mid-century inspiration.
At Kömune, the hotel restaurant, food lovers will revel in the famous Wagyu rib served with sautéed broccolini, or the wild mushroom crostini with butter truffle and parmesan. When night sets in, climb up to the rooftop where you will enjoy unobstructed views over Ocean Park, all the way to Repulse Bay and the China Sea.
