The Luxe Manor is a Surrealism-Inspired Boutique Hotel

HONG KONG


Surrealism is at the core of Tsim Sha Tsui’s The Luxe Manor. A boutique hotel with an eye for the artistic, The Luxe Manor prides itself on quirkiness and post-modern artwork particularly from Salvador Dali and André Breton, the founders of the art movement from the 1920’s. We check in in to the one-of-a-kind hotel to experience a taste of whims in the heart of Hong Kong.

Location


Conveniently situated below the buzzing Knutsford Terrace in Tsim Sha Tsui, the hotel is only a five-minute walk from the MTR station. Guests can wander around the well-known streets of Hong Kong and dine in some of the nearby restaurants near the hotel—and of course, head out for drinks at the bars on Knutsford.

Design


The design at The Luxe Manor is undeniably one of the most unique in the city. Boasting out-of-this-world interiors, which begin when you enter the hotel through the heavy tall doors, to the lobby which is decked in stylish yet odd furnishings in line with the surrealist theme.

Described as a self-proclaimed “European mansion in an urban forest”, the hotel showcases mosaic patterns in accordance with Gaudi’s inspirations. The more you look around the hotel, the more you notice—and for art appreciators, a few recognisable motifs can be spotted throughout.

The Room


We stayed in the Premier Room, a quaint yet quirky accommodation with hints of surrealism in the paintings and furniture.

There isn’t much of a view—it is Knutsford Terrace, after all—but all is made up for when exploring the hotel grounds.

Its prized rooms, however, are from the selection of themed rooms on “The Shining” interior-inspired floor. Each suite has its own unique and unimaginable concept, and really feels like a temporary step away from the world. There are six suites in total and the themes are as follows:


Royale – based on Hollywood glamour and revives the lavish 1940’s

Chic – elegant and minimalist

Safari – my favourite one, a canopy bed and safari-themed room, conjuring up ideas of luxury camping in the Arabian desert

Liaison – for honeymooner’s or lovers, this room is reminiscent of Japanese love hotels

Nordic – in line with the hotel’s renowned FINDS Nordic restaurant, this room is icy blue and decked in faux fur
