PROPERTY FEATURES

The Premises 

Boutique hotel Tuve – discreetly set behind Causeway Bay in Hong Kong – is a riddle wrapped in galvanised steel and white marble. Housed in a sleek black monolith reminiscent of spy headquarters, guests stay in minimalist rooms lined in concrete and wood, with puzzle-box furnishings. Photographer Kim Høltermand’s snaps of Sweden’s fog-swathed Lake Tuve partially influenced the hotel's moody ambience, but any chilliness is offset with warm lighting and cloud-soft beds.

At the Hotel

PACKING TIPS

A Field Notes pad for jotting down design tips – you're sure to be inspired. Hong Kong is packed with superlative shops and quirky markets, so clear a section of your suitcase for new acquisitions.

ALSO

Rooms seem sparse at first, with a wall-mounted TV, chair, bed, block of marble and a wooden box, but the latter opens to reveal a desk, city guide and minibar. The block of marble can be used as a stool, and the minibar’s stocked with treats such as Brouwerji de Molen beer, Antipodes water (allegedly the purest you can buy), Potocki vodka and Fevertree tonic water.

USEFUL INFORMATION

Your credit card will be pre-authorised for the whole stay when booking. On check-in, a charge of HK$500 a night, each room is required for incidental charges (minibar snacks and drinks, laundry services and more) and can be paid using cash or credit card. The amount will be refunded at check-out, if no chargeable items have been used during your stay.

Rooms 

Each room looks like it leapt from the pages of Wallpaper– an edgy warehouse space shrunk to cosy proportions and refined. Premier rooms are a generous 30 square metres: palatial compared to the average Hong Kong hotel room. Bright, open, and set on the higher floors, they’re less likely to be troubled by the crowd and traffic noise below.

Food & Drink 

Unforgettable Features 

None at present, but there's something exciting in the works.

Experience the Extraordinary 

From Tuve’s peaceful inner sanctum, the Tin Hau district is a sensory onslaught, with rushing traffic ahead and on the flyover above, a flurry of pedestrians and pockets of activity wherever you look. Causeway Bay is densely packed with malls and market stalls; Lee Gardens is a temple of high-fashion boutiques, a spree in Hysan Place covers 17 floors, and Jardine’s Crescent market has ironic tees and colourful accessories galore. The lower terminus for the tram to Victoria Peak is a 10-minute taxi ride from the hotel; the vertiginous journey ends at a viewing platform overlooking the harbour, Kowloon and the mountains beyond. On descending, pick up antique propaganda posters and other curios along Hollywood Road, and pop into PMQ for sculptural jewellery pieces, niche labels and cool homewares; Cat Street market along Upper Lascar Row has unique vintage pieces. Oil exhbition space is a 10-minute walk from Tuve for intriguing artwork, and industry big-hitters – the Gagosian and White Cube – lie to the west, by smaller spaces, such as Hanart TZ and Saamlung galleries. K11 Art Mall, on Hanoi Road, is a hot-bed of artsy happenings. For a glimpse of Hong Kong history, visit Lin Fa Temple by the Central Library; each year from the 14–16 September, beasts snake their way past this monument during the Fire Dragon Dance festival. Or ride the Metro to Kowloon to stop by empire-red Wong Tai Sin Temple and meditate by the charming nunnery pagoda in Nan Lian Garden.

Transportation 

Tuve sits on a busy side street in the buzzy Tai Hang area, on the Hong Kong Island side of Victoria Harbour. It’s a 20-minute drive from Victoria Peak, and the Man Mo Monastery.

Planes 

British Airways and Cathay Pacific fly direct to Hong Kong International from the UK, US, Australia and major destinations in Asia and China. One-way transfers, arranged by the hotel, are HK$900 for four, HK$1,000 for up to six, with an HK$100 supplement from midnight to 6am.

Trains 

Hong Kong Hung Hom station is a 15-minute drive from Tuve; a train ride here from Beijing and Shanghai can take up to 24 hours, but Guangzhou is a relatively short two-hour ride away. The closest Metro Station is Tin Hau, just a five-minute walk. A Metro tourist day pass is HK$65 for 24 hours, and if you’re there for more than a few days, invest in an Octopus Card (a HK$50 deposit, then top up whe

Automobiles 

It’s possible to apply for a temporary driving licence in Hong Kong for a small fee, subject to passing a written test, but city-wide Metro links out to Kowloon and lantau Island make it an unnescessary hassle. If you do acquire a licence, keep in mind that it may not be valid in mainland China.

Other 

Star ferries run a frequent service from Kowloon to Hong Kong Island, but it’s more of a tourist attraction. A high-speed TurboJet runs from Macau to Hong Kong every 15 minutes (around an hour’s journey), from 7am to midnight.
