First Look: Mira Moon hotel, Hong Kong

11 Oct 2013 by Clement Huang

The Miramar Group, which owns the Mira Hotel, is about to launch the brand new Mira Moon hotel in its homebase of Hong Kong. For an earlier report on the property, click here.

Set to open on November 1, Mira Moon is located in Wan Chai and overlooks the Victoria Harbour. The hotel is also a mere five minute walk away from the Causeway Bay MTR, offering travellers easy access to other parts of the city.

Mira Moon offers 91 guestrooms that have a highly artistic tone, with the interiors inspired by the group’s interpretation of the mythical Chinese story of Chang’er, the Moon Goddess and the Jade Rabbit.

Designed by Wanders & yoo lead creative director Marcel Wanfers, the hotel features a bold surge of lacquered whites and Chinese reds, whilst the symbol of the peony is ever-present, embodied in ornately carved wood panelling and tiled mosaics.

The hotel offers three different room categories: Half Moon rooms (21 sqm), New Moon rooms (36 sqm), and Full Moon rooms (38 sqm). There is also a penthouse unit on the 36th floor that measures a very generous 118 sqm.

All guestrooms offer a range of basic amenities including IPTV, in-room iPad minis pre-loaded with apps and complimentary mini bar. Each room also features a Nespresso coffee machine. Power sockets are the British three-pin type, but each room offers a universal adaptor.

A significant feature of the new property is that it offers two dedicated "Ladies’ Floors" as well as two "Gentlemen’s Floors". Whilst these "single-gender" levels offer rooms that are identical to the rest of the hotel, the differentiating factor is that each floor provides tailored services for the respective genders. These include bathrobes and slippers that feature different designs for men and women, along with bathroom amenity kits that are gender specific. Finally, the traditional Chinese garment found in the wardrobe (available for purchase through the hotel's boutique) is either male or female depending on the hotel floor.

In terms of facilities, guests at the hotel can experience a fusion of Chinese-Spanish tapas at the design-led Super Giant Bar & Restaurant. There is also a fully equipped 24-hour gym with exclusive usage times for men and women.

Daily room rates start at HK$4,000 (US$516) for a Half Moon room whilst a Full Moon room will set you back HK$6,000 (US$774). Finally the Moonshine penthouse will cost HK$45,000 (US$5803) per night. All rates are subjected to an additional 10 per cent charge.
