In a world where so many brands are expanding as far and wide as possible, The Peninsula Hotels take a different approach. With only ten properties around the globe, Peninsula have built a carefully curated portfolio that exudes a consistent approach to world-class hospitality. A visit to any of these hotels is marked by elegant style, exclusive benefits, and immaculate service.
Peninsula Hotels also offer some of the best perks for our clients of any brand. Room upgrades are confirmed at the time of booking, rather than having to wait until your arrival – a fantastic value addition to any stay. Even more unique is the beloved “Peninsula Time” check-in/check-out policy. Guests can check into their room any time after 6:00 AM, and stay as late as 10:00 PM on their date of departure. You simply won’t find another brand as flexible as this!
The Luxury Travel Agency partners with all the hotels in the Peninsula collection, and can’t wait to have our clients experience them again! Here are some of their very finest:
Peninsula Hotels: The Fabulous Far East
The Peninsula story began in Hong Kong, where the brand’s first hotel opened in 1928. Over the years, The Peninsula Hong Kong built a reputation as the “Grande Dame of the Far East”, an iconic property by which other Hong Kong hotels are still measured. In fact, the name of the brand itself stems from its location on the very tip of the Kowloon Peninsula.
Arriving in style has never been easier; the hotel owns a fleet of 14 Rolls-Royce Phantoms, and if you want to raise the bar even higher, you can hop in a helicopter for a transfer to the hotel’s very own rooftop helipad. The unique East-meets-West elegance of Hong Kong is elevated to its highest level at this hotel, which remains one of the finest choices in the city for a luxurious visit.
To the north lies Japan, and the equally dynamic metropolis of Tokyo. Here in this global capital, competition is fierce – being the best at anything requires enormous attention to detail. After all, this is the city with more Michelin-starred restaurants than any other! Which only makes the achievements of The Peninsula Tokyo even more impressive. With a fantastic location across from Hibiya Park and the Imperial Palace, this hotel regularly ranks among the best not just in Tokyo, but around the world.
While many of the city’s top hotels are perched atop huge towers, The Peninsula Tokyo is accessed right from the street, so an atmosphere of luxury surrounds you from the moment you open the door. Afternoon Tea in The Lobby is a favorite for guests and locals alike! Rooms and suites are some of the largest in Tokyo, offering a blend of simple elegance with technological savvy that characterizes the best of Japanese design. For a memorable stay in the heart of the city, The Peninsula Tokyo is an impeccable choice.
Peninsula Hotels: Riverside Royalty
Bangkok is often called the “City of Angels” and the Chao Phraya flowing through it the “River of Kings”. Only fitting, then, that The Peninsula Bangkok rises above its shores. This beautiful hotel offers the best in sophisticated Thai luxury. Every room and suite boasts extensive views of the river, outfitted in gorgeous teak wood and marble. Many offer private balconies for taking in the vistas – a rare treat in Bangkok.
Each of their three dedicated restaurants enjoy a privileged riverside position, and that’s without including The River Bar, an exceptional terrace for starting your night (though you may find it difficult to leave!). Bangkok is a shopper’s paradise, and many of the city’s best malls are just a short boat ride away. There’s no more stylish option than the signature green-roofed Peninsula shuttle boats, at your beck and call to make the most of your Bangkok stay.
In France, the brand’s only European property stands out amongst stiff competition. The Peninsula Paris is French elegance at its finest. From the moment you step into the naturally illuminated lobby, you’re treated to an experience that perfectly balances a rich heritage with contemporary style. The rooms are decorated in lovely light tones, but it’s the 86 suites that really shine; their exclusive themed options will have you feeling like a first-class Parisian in no time!
One particular favorite is the Rooftop Garden Suite, a duplex with private access to a lush oasis on top of the hotel. It’s the perfect terrace for entertaining friends and family, important clients, or simply yourself and a loved one, enjoying a glittering view of the Eiffel Tower. When it’s time to go shopping, a Mini Cooper S Clubman whisks you through the iconic streets of Paris. And while it’s not technically on the riverside, the Seine is only a few blocks away; in fact, nearly everything you could ever want is within arm’s reach at the Peninsula Paris.
Peninsula Hotels: American Ambition
That Peninsula’s three American hotels are located in the country’s three largest cities doesn’t surprise – but their distinctive styles just might. On the west coast, The Peninsula Beverly Hills is the epitome of a high-class hideaway. Positioned right along S Santa Monica Blvd., you’ll find yourself in the heart of the action with the best of Beverly Hills at your fingertips; yet once you’re on property, it’s a world of its own.
Rooms and suites are decorated in a bright, comfortable style, more of a residence than a hotel. A 60-foot rooftop pool with 12 private cabanas (outfitted with TVs, speakers, and more) makes for a perfect afternoon of sunny relaxation. And when you need some true pampering, The Peninsula Spa is celebrated as one of America’s best, with a huge array of award-winning treatments for total revitalization. Even in one of the world’s most exclusive neighborhoods, The Peninsula Beverly Hills continues to impress.
On the other side of the country, The Peninsula New York offers similar residential-style elegance, imbued with the energy of “The City That Never Sleeps”. An impeccable 5th Avenue address in the heart of Midtown Manhattan provides you access to the best of NYC, with an expert concierge team granting your wishes at the push of a button. The grand outer façade of the building opens into a property full of luxurious touches and surprises.
Their signature restaurant, Clement, is laid out in a series of interconnected rooms that each offer their own atmosphere and flair. Yet it’s the Salon de Ning, a rooftop bar and terrace, which truly captures the spirit of the hotel. Two outdoor terraces and an interior bar make up an enchanting space for overlooking the city, serving inspired signature cocktails and delectable shared plates. Even in a city with absolutely everything, you’ll have a hard time tearing yourself away from the charms of The Peninsula New York.
