"THE REPULSE BAY" Hong Kong Hotel Tip by ancient_traveler
Hong Kong Hotels: 790 reviews and 913 photos
The Repulse Bay residential community is built on the former site of Hong Kong's famous Repulse Bay Hotel (1920 - 1982).
In its 62-year history, the hotel was the centre of charm, chic and the Charleston. Not only was it a popular holiday spot for locals who enjoyed the drive out to the beach on weekends, it was also a favourite haunt for expatriates working in the Far East and a choice destination for international travellers.
Unique Qualities: In place of the old Repulse Bay Hotel - one of the few reminders of the early colonial period until it was pulled down - there now stands a modern building with a spectacular hole built into it which contains apartments, shops and an excellent dim sum restaurant.
The hotel was immortalised in the Hollywood classic "Love Is A Many Splendoured Thing" and the Oscar-winning "Coming Home" which was partly filmed in the hotel's Reading Room. During filming, hotel guests mingled with Peter Sellers at the Sunday Buffet or caught glimpses of William Holden lounging by the old fountain in the garden.
The spectacular landscape, beautiful buildings, impeccable service, fine cuisine and the care taken to ensure the comfort of guests all combined to give a grace and charm to the hotel that made every stay truly memorable.
