Staying in a serviced residence or apartment is a useful way to find your bearings in a new city before deciding where to live on a more permanent basis. But it also sets you up with a home away from home if you’re on an extended visit or between leases. In Hong Kong, one stylish option is EAST Residences in Quarry Bay. The 106 sleek and contemporary serviced apartments include studios, one- and two-bedroom suites and a penthouse. All have generous living spaces and plenty of natural light, thanks to views of Hong Kong Island and Victoria Harbour. Here’s what else to expect!
5 features of EAST Residences
The property is smack-bang in the heart of Taikoo Place, with plenty of restaurants and bars in the neighbourhood. Also within a few minutes’ walk is event space ArtisTree, as well as Hong Kong Island’s largest shopping mall, Cityplaza.
Need to get around HK in a hurry? No problem. Transport links a short walk from EAST Residences include Quarry Bay MTR, providing access to both the Island line and Tseung Kwan O line, and Tai Koo MTR. Jump on a train and you’ll be in Central is less than 15 minutes. Oh, and you’ll remain connected in another sense thanks to the pocket Wi-Fi provided for all guests; this can be used everywhere in Hong Kong.
Stay here and you’ll find a host of amenities and guest services at your fingertips; these include a 24-hour gym, a stylish lounge and reading area, and a landscaped terrace with views of the vibrant Taikoo Place neighbourhood. As a longer-stay guest, you can expect the same special attention and service as that provided to people who are overnighting in the hotel.
Along with the aforementioned gym at the residences, guests can enjoy access to both the pool and gym at EAST, Hong Kong. Or, for a green space in the neighbourhood, head to Quarry Bay Park on the harbourfront. And some superb mountain trails lie just to the south, taking you into the heart of Tai Tam Country Park for outdoor adventuring.
Eat at neighbourhood restaurant MR & MRS FOX and you can conveniently sign any charges back to your room. It even offers in-room dining for guests – the seasonally inspired menu includes the likes of dry-aged steaks and grilled seafood (we like the sound of the lobster paella…). You also get signing privileges at EAST Hong Kong, including at rooftop bar and lounge Sugar, and bustling first-floor eatery FEAST (Food by EAST).
Accommodation is available for a minimum duration of 28 days. For inquiries, contact the EAST Residences leasing team at 3968 3401 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Visit the website for more information.
