The Luxe Manor Hotel is a quirky boutique hotel that bridges design and concept, object and image - a surrealist fantasia of living spaces. The warmth and old-world charm of the lobby features eye-catching upholstery and illuminated trompe l'oeil chandeliers; in the rooms, the LCD televisions are framed like paintings, and the “frames” painted on the walls curiously display empty space. If you're willing to splurge on a suite, you'll appreciate the extra space, where each of the six suites are themed - from the madhouse “Mirage” to the exotic “Safari,” or the more traditionally minimalist “Chic.” The Italian restaurant Aspasia, continues the absurdist angle with contemporary haute cuisine, colorful Dada-inspired cocktails, and three decadent dining rooms: a silvery, angelic Heaven room, the lava-floored deep red Hell room, and a verdant Eden. The meeting facilities and fitness center tone down the experience for a strategic visual break. The Luxe Manor is a surprising and welcome gem in Kowloon, a lively neighborhood surrounded by shopping, dining and nightlife places, and comes with a reasonable price tag.
