Expert review of The Royal Garden
The Royal Garden’s architect thought to build the hotel around a spacious atrium that’s hung with greenery. The management stocked the property with some show-stopping restaurants, plus very comfortable rooms. And the rest, as they say, is history. Since 1981, anyway.
Tsim Sha Tsui East’s central plaza is a short way from the hotel, and MTR entrances (if not platforms) are an easy walk away.
The Royal Garden’s kept pace with development since its opening two decades back. So expect plasma TVs and Frette sheets, as well as an assured and colourful décor.
The atrium breathes life into the whole property, even on the cloudiest day.
If you include a liquid lunch at the Martini Bar, you could dine in a different restaurant every day of the week; there’s Japanese, Beijing and Cantonese, Vietnamese and that catch-all “Intenational”. Jewel in the culinary crown is Sabatini, allied to the original restaurant in Rome and a stand-out in a city that rates Italian cuisine highly.
Well, of course it makes sense to put the pool up on the roof; the tennis court (a rarity in Hong Kong) and putting green (ditto) are sporty plusses.
My parents stayed here and were still marvelling some years afterwards. Nuff said.
Plenty of group travel, plus some savvy foodies. And my parents.
If it’s location you are after, Kowloon Shangri-La and Hotel Nikko are in the immediate vicinity. Cross-check rates.
