The Entertainment Suite at the Landmark Mandarin Oriental — Hong Kong, China
These are busy times for Joyce Wang, the Hong Kong-based architect and designer who having barely finished her refurbishment of London’s Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, has just unveiled her latest opus sprucing up all 111 rooms at Hong Kong’s Landmark Mandarin Oriental in her trademark sweep of cool textured colours and elegantly parsed furnishings.
Her boldest statement though must be the latter’s Entertainment Suite, which is exactly what it sounds like. Located on the northwest corner of the hotel’s 15th floor with bracing views of Queens Road Central, the vast 2,250 sq ft pleasure dome is the stage-set for blow-out parties and celebrations.
It’s abundantly clear that Wang was barely constrained by a budget, as evidenced by the limestone walls, silk finishes, hand-moulded chandeliers, customised champagne caddy, a capacious bathtub cut from a single piece of marble, and a B&O sound system boosted by a 160in screen and laser projector. If boredom should ever strike, there’s always the 1930s vintage jukebox, a cabinet of Cuban cigars and rare wines, DJ booth, popcorn machine, fully-loaded PlayStation and a crystal vitrine that’s kept stocked with nibbles to keep the party going.
Hypochondriac revellers, meanwhile, will be thrilled by the suite’s ventilation system that dispenses purified, allergen-free air.
