Hullett House which opened in 2009 and is owned and managed by Hong Kong's Aqua Group, occupies a building which dates back to 1881 as the territory's former Marine Police Headquarters and which sits strategically atop a hill just steps away from the harbour and Hong Kong's famous Star Ferry Kowloon Pier, and is a rare example of magnificent colonial architecture.
At the heart of Hullett House lays the all-suite hotel that promises an intimate guest experience and old fashioned, personal service in each of its ten suites. A true celebration of Hong Kong's rich "East meets West" heritage, the ten sumptuous suites have been each individually designed by owner David Yeo to embody a period of history and highlight the importance of Hong Kong's cultural past from its roots as a colonial outpost of Victorian England through to today's modern Chinese city.
Boasting large private terraces with views over manicured lawns and the surrounding cityscape, guests can stay in a Chinese Imperial suite with hand-painted Qing dynasty murals and a bed fit for an Emperor, an elegant English pastoral suite decorated in restful greens with 26 hand-painted native songbirds, or a vibrant China pop-art suite. All suites offer all modern amenities such as free Wi-Fi, rain-head showers and surround sound system.
The bespoke Hong Kong experience extends to the dining table with the House's five restaurants including St. George with its dining room reminiscent of a 19th-century gentlemen's club and fine French cuisine prepared by Michelin-star chef Philippe Orrico, the House's prized Hong Kong Cantonese restaurant Loong Toh Yuen, the Stables Grill, The Parlour and Mariners' Rest.
Hullett House is a celebration of Hong Kong's rich heritage and its colourful past, both architectural and cultural. The design-led heritage development consists of an intimate hotel, five restaurants and bars and a souvenir store. The property and its various elements are all housed within one of the oldest buildings located in the heart of Hong Kong dating back to 1881 and a rare example of magnificent colonial architecture. Hullett House is owned and operated by Aqua Restaurant Group.
