RM 1,265 per night at JW Marriott---double if not tripled the price of JW Marriott Kuala Lumpur  but what to  do? This is Hong Kong and JW Marriott is next door to Pacific Place, one of my favourite shopping malls just as JW Marriott KL adjoins Starhill Gallery. They should change the name as most of my foreign friends assume Starhill Gallery sells paintings, sulptures and artworks!

Pool Lounge

Indulgent foodies can also order the impressive Seafood Tower for Two, made of market-fresh oysters, poached prawns, Boston lobsters, mussels, snow crab legs and prawn cocktails.

Complementing the delicious array of seafood snacks, the Pool Lounge’s drinks list is one of the best in town and features everything from international wines to classic concoctions to a number of signature cocktails. These include the ‘Flying Fish,’ a sweet and zesty mix of Myer’s Dark Rum, Malibu, lime juice and pineapple juice, the refreshing ‘Lazy Snake’ made from Absolut Citrus, apple liqueur, cucumber and lime juice as well as the lavish “Tiramisu” combining cognac, Kahlua, Myer’s Dark Rum, Bailey’s Irish cream and milk or perhaps indulge in spiked “Pepsi Float” made from Absolut Vanilla, Pepsi and vanilla ice-cream.

To continue the party after finger food and sundowners at the Pool Lounge, JW Marriott Hotel Hong Kong has a number of other bars and lounge options on property.
