It was a complete thrill for my daughter and I to take over Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong’s Instagram account between April 21 – 23. During this timeframe, we showcased family-friendly Hong Kong and why we book into this luxury hotel each year.
To give you a quick overview, it is the flagship hotel of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group and responsible for my family’s current love of the brand. Since opening in 1963 a wide range of dignitaries, politicians and celebrities have walked through its gorgeous black marble lobby. We have an over-a-decade-long history here and all three of us love it for different reasons. My husband laid his head in Hong Kong first here (lucky guy lived here for over a month), it was a social hub for us during five years of Hong Kong residency and my daughter is such a fan of everything from the automated curtains to the fresh honey dew juice. I adore its elegance and the fact that they do everything well, as you will soon see.
