[Hong Kong] The Peninsula Yacht

Updated: Oct 23, 2019


The Peninsula Hong Kong recently launched the third in its Holy Trifecta of transportation options - The Peninsula Yacht. The Peninsula has officially become the only hotel in Hong Kong to offer 3 forms of deluxe transportation options, including its iconic fleet of Rolls-Royce Phantoms by land, customized helicopter ride by air, and now, a sleek 19-meter cruiser by sea. I was one of the lucky few to experience The Peninsula Yacht's first sail last week, and the experience was just as dreamy as you'd think. Crisp fall weather, soft music, free-flowing bubbles, 5-star catering service and shimmering lights from Hong Kong's cityscape in the distance. Night yachting really doesn't get much better than this.

As we arrived, the crew docked the yacht next to the Avenue of Stars.

The interior - not that we actually used this part of the boat. The view and weather were too perfect to be inside.

At exactly 8pm, the Symphony of Lights started up and the music on the boat synchronized to the laser light show all around us. Even after 20+ years of living here, I've never seen the light show all the way through. From the boat, though, it was pretty spectacular (and crazy romantic).

The view from the bottom deck of the boat...

...and from the cushy top deck.

We rounded up our "Peninsula Experience" with a light dinner at Felix, now helmed by new Executive Chef Juan Gomez. I had the duck, which was beautifully executed and perfectly pink in the center. Also really enjoyed the extra potent cocktails by Marko Petrovic!
