Styled as a “modern manor,” the 10-story tower takes its design cues from Lantau’s history of silver mining.
Right on the doorstep of Hong Kong International Airport, Tung Chung previously had just two hotels, a shame given the wealth of things to see and do on Lantau Island. The hospitality scene of this recently built town has gotten a boost with the arrival of The Silveri Hong Kong – MGallery, which opened on June 1. Located within the Citygate mixed-use complex — just a half-hour’s train ride from Central — the 206-room property features polished interiors by locally based LWK Partners and global design firm Arquitectonica.
The Silveri Hong Kong – MGallery takes its name from Lantau’s historic silver mines, and recalls that heritage through its color palette, the metallic design motifs in both the private and public spaces, and commissioned outdoor art pieces. Guests come in through a tunnel-like driveway lined with wooden frames and green walls, to arrive at a courtyard where a silver water-drop sculpture stands in place of a fountain.
Upstairs, the entry-level Classic rooms measure 26 square meters; higher-floor Luxury Terrace rooms come with a private outdoor seating area and heated Jacuzzi. For a resort-like experience, guests can book one of a dozen suites offering extra amenities like a pillow menu, Malin+Goetz bath products, and aromatherapy shower capsules. As the name suggests, Pool Terrace suites feature a private deck with sunbeds and a five-by-two-meter plunge pool, but the ones to book are the 77-square-meter Sunset suites for their sea and mountain views.
On-site recreational facilities include a gym and a 25-meter swimming pool, set in an outdoor garden with manicured lawns and winding pathways. There’s also a trio of dining and drinking venues. The Enclave is an all-day bistro helmed by chef Danny Grimshaw, whose globetrotting menu has been informed by his travels in Australia, Thailand, and Hong Kong. Patrons can look forward to weekend brunches and dine on a terrace that spills out into the hotel gardens. Fresh, the hotel’s deli and coffee shop, serves light lunches and snacks, while The Pavilion promises afternoon tea, tapas-style bites, and sundowners enjoyed with views across Tung Chung Bay to the neighboring hills.
While outings to nearby attractions such as the Tian Tan Buddha, Po Lin Monastery, and Hong Kong Disneyland can be arranged, the MGallery brand’s curated guest experiences, dubbed Memorable Moments, include hiking excursions to the stilted fishing village of Tai O and even private helicopter tours above Lantau.
