Hong Kong is not short of spectacular accommodation, but the new K11 Artus is a serviced residence that promises to deliver as-yet-unseen levels of style and sophistication. Nestled in Tsim Sha Tsui, this “artisanal home” commands an exceptional waterfront location, overlooking the glittering Victoria Harbour. But while the views are impressive, it is the interiors that truly elevate this new property.
The vision of Adrian Cheng, founder of K11, the high-end lifestyle and art brand, K11 Artus has harnessed the skills of some of the world’s most celebrated interior designers and architects, including Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF) and a.f.s.o., plus Hong Kong’s Joyce Wang, the UK’s Fiona Barratt and US-based nemaworkshop. Together they have crafted something truly unique; a premium residence that combines international hotel facilities with creativity and cultural immersion.
K11 Artus comprises 287 residences in a 14-storey tower, all perched atop K11 Musea, the new harbourside cultural-retail destination. Options range from spacious studios to vast three-bedroom suites, which come equipped with open-plan living areas, designer furnishings and cutting-edge amenities. Perfect for short or extended stays, many of the residences also offer floor-to-ceiling windows with panoramic views of the harbour.
With all guests being offered between 48 and 178 square metres of living space, K11 Artus far exceeds the elbow room usually afforded to hotel guests in Hong Kong, creating a home-away-from-home experience. A series of cultural salons – The Living Salon, The Chamber and The Library and The Commune – allow guests to interact with the heritage of Hong Kong, including literature, poetry, art and calligraphy, or just relax and reconnect with friends and fellow residents.
Other onsite facilities include a state-of-the-art gym, a personal training room and an outdoor heated swimming pool with views of the harbour. The lively breakfast room is a great place to start the day, and concierge services are available at the touch of a button via a series of apps, including Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp WeChat and more.
With such a wide range of hotels and residences now available in Hong Kong, catering to every conceivable sector of the market, it takes a truly distinctive property to stand out from the crowd. With its focus on art, design and culture, luxurious amenities and expansive living space, K11 Artus has successfully raised the bar for accommodation in this vibrant city.
