If you’re looking for serviced accommodation that has a creative edge, then this spot on the TST waterfront will be right up your alley! K11 ARTUS provides luxury accommodation consisting of a range of serviced residences from studio apartments up to three-bedroom penthouses.
With a name that derives from a combination of “art” and “domus” (the Latin word for “home”), K11 ARTUS is more than just a private, luxury residential experience; it also has a fabulous focus on art that gives a stay here a sense of a cultural journey. You’ll enjoy the lifestyle, for one thing, but you’ll also gain plenty of inspiration and insights.
Located at Victoria Dockside, TST’s arts and cultural district, each of the property’s residences boasts a wraparound “wave”-style balcony; standing here, you can take in some sublime open-air views of Victoria Harbour or the HK cityscape. These design-led full-service artisanal homes also offer a 24-hour digital concierge, a Living Salon for board games or books, a stylish Library to catch up on the day’s news; and you can even order meals on your TV from the great restaurants in the K11 MUSEA precinct.
What’s more, in the true spirit of “living with art”, the rare Chinese arts and crafts scattered throughout the residence are curated by the K11 Craft and Guild Foundation; this is a non-profit organisation that preserves and conserves fast-disappearing Chinese craftsmanship. Part of the property’s revenues go into supporting this meaningful cause.
A word with a resident
Time at K11 ARTUS so far: 1 year, 3 months
Why did you choose this apartment at K11 ARTUS serviced residences?
The beautiful balcony was the first thing that caught my attention, soon after I had arrived in Hong Kong. I arranged a visit to the property the next day.
What are a few things you like best about the luxury accommodation?
Even during the site visit, I admired the quality of the interior design, and the amount of thought that was put into every detail. The room is generously spacious, and the wraparound balcony gives me plenty of fresh air. I can walk out to the balcony from the living room or from my bedroom.
I also like the open kitchen, and the separate living room and bedroom; it means I can separate my work and life within the residence. It’s also very well-equipped; there’s an electric stove, full-size oven, full-size fridge, washer/dryer combo for laundry, full sets of cutlery and crockery, rice cooker and Nespresso machine.
What about the facilities and services on offer?
First, I’m passionate about the outdoor infinity pool; it’s incredible! Also, the team is warm and friendly. They take you on a detailed art tour within K11 ARTUS, they give you small nibbles or gifts on your birthday and special occasions like Chinese New Year. And the 24-hour AMICI team (digital concierge) is very helpful. They’re efficient and can always offer alternative solutions whenever you have questions.
When I come back for the day, the team always greet me by name, and you can see their smiles under the masks!
It’s a great location – what are some of your favourite things to do in the neighbourhood?
Jogging along the Avenue of Stars, getting a Five Guys burger at K11 MUSEA, and watching a movie at K11 Art House. The shuttle for residents takes you anywhere within TST, so it’s super convenient.
What was your initial impression of the property, and has it changed since you’ve moved in?
I thought it could be a bit “cold”, given that it’s very private. However, I was surprised by the genuine and sincere approach of the staff. They create an atmosphere where I can enjoy my life here – my apartment truly feels like my home. The overall experience is fantastic.
I also found the love of my life while living here! Having so much space, I was able to invite a friend to visit for conversation and cooking sessions, after which I got to know her better – and now we’re a couple!
Describe living at K11 ARTUS in three words.
Elegant (the interior décor, the art collection, and also the staff); open (I can enjoy the view of the Avenue of Stars and Victoria Harbour from my balcony); and “casa” (“home” in Italian).
