J Plus Hotel By YOO Introduces “Explore Hong Kong In YOO Style”

July 27, 2015 Hotel News No Comments Email Email

Award winning J Plus Hotel by YOO has introduced “Explore Hong Kong in YOO Style” – personalised tours of Hong Kong with unique insights into the city by local trendsetters.  Insiders in the Food, Fashion, and Arts & Culture scenes are tailoring one-on-one tours according to specific interests.

 The unique insights from those in the know are led by celebrity chef Walter Kei, fashion guru Humphrey Cheung, and culture maven Johannes Pong introducing local arts and culture. 

 Walter Kei’s Foodie Tours visit markets to select the best local ingredients, followed by personalised cooking classes in his own private kitchen or in collaboration with Michelin star-chefs, as well as discovering local delicacies. Bringing all his insider knowledge as a celebrity chef, food writer, TV host and author, he can also escort guests to discover unique local ingredients and remote dining experiences off the usual tourist trail, such as Tai O fishing village. 

Humphrey Cheung knows the Hong Kong fashion scene inside out.  The graduate with first honours degree of Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London, where Alexander McQueen, John Galliano and Stella McCartney studied, has worked for top fashion houses from Lane Crawford to Burberry and Giorgio Armani, as well as his own brand Pink Martini.  His Fashion Tours extend from designer icons to independent boutiques and hidden vintage outlets.  Bespoke tailoring is also included for shirts at Qipao, along with advice on outfits for special occasions and personal styling tips on mix and match shopping with high-end and low-end items.

 Johannes Pong guides guests on Arts & Culture Tours from lesser-known galleries like PACE and Above Second, to established icons like Pearl Lam Galleries, Sundaram Tagore Gallery, The Cat Street Gallery and Liang Yi Museum, home to one of the largest and best-curated private collections of antique Chinese Ming and Qing dynasty furniture in the world.  The well-known culture writer is a regular on lifestyle TV programmes, including introducing Travel Channel’s Andrew Zimmern to snake soup on an episode of Bizarre Foods.

 “These insights into Hong Kong’s rich food, fashion and arts & culture scenes through experts’ eyes are a unique first-hand experience of the fun and trendy Hong Kong lifestyle,” said J Plus Hotel by YOO General Manager, Ms Vivian Chau.            

“Our guests are always on the lookout for something extraordinary – sharing the same DNA as J Plus Hotel by YOO.”

Itineraries are priced according to personal request – depending on time and extent of experiences.  Summer rates at the hotel start from HK$1,600++, including complimentary continental breakfast, afternoon cakes and evening wines served in the stylishly refurbished lobby amid contemporary modern art.  A host of other complimentary extras include 24-hour coffee, tea, water, juices and soft drinks in the Lobby, free broadband WIFI and local phone calls, and use of a HANDY smartphone as a personal Hong Kong mobile, with unlimited IDD for assigned countries and 3G data connectivity, plus electronic travel guide with shopping and restaurant discounts.  Guests also have access to the hotel’s DVD/CD library, self-laundry facilities and Fit@JPlushk – gym with state-of-art fitness facilities. 

Fashionable J Plus Hotel by YOO has begun a new era in the heart of Causeway Bay following a HK$10 million makeover in 2014.  Prestigious international accolades have included ranking among Smart Travel Asia’s ‘Top 10 Boutique Hotels’, TripAdvisor’s ‘Certificate of Excellence’ (2011- 2015) and Luxury Design recognition in the 2014 World Luxury Hotel Awards.

 “This Philippe Starck-designed iconic is more than just a boutique hotel.  We embody a declaration of love for fine design, fine living and unforgettable experiences,” added Ms Chau. 

The makeover has refreshed the hotel’s 32 luxurious studios and 24 spacious suites with bold, bright design and introduced an eclectic new venue for pop-up art exhibitions – Art@JPlushk.
