Bettina Prentice’s Hong Kong: The Peninsula Hotel, The China Club, and Repulse Bay

No contributor

To help you get the most out of your Art Basel experience, we’re asking leading art, culture, and lifestyle experts to share how they enjoy Hong Kong. Here, we spoke with Bettina Prentice, Founder and Creative Director of Prentice Cultural

“For my travel essentials and rituals: A direct flight from New York to Hong Kong is just under 20 hours (yikes), but Cathay Pacific’s business class makes long-haul flights seem much shorter than they actually are. Right before I leave, I take an antioxidant, Vitamin B, and a hydration therapy IV drip that ensures me to hit the ground running with meetings when I land. For the flight, I use True Botanicals Nutrient Mist and drink nothing but water. Then I curl up under my La Ligne wool poncho and work on New York Magazine’s crossword before conking out. Then, I love to see art at The Peninsula Hotel. Their new art program “Art in Resonance” features large-scale, newly commissioned immersive, hypnotic art works. I’m proudly co-curating with Isolde Brielmaier and we wanted to find art that transports the audience, even if it is only for a few moments. For dinner, I love The China Club. The interior design really transports me to Shanghai in the 1930s. If you have more time check out Repulse Bay in Southern Hong Kong,  there are some beautiful restaurants right on the water and you can go for a swim afterward or just dig your feet into the sand. At the end of a busy fair week, I relax at The Peninsula Spa. They are open until 11 p.m., so I have a massage there upon arrival in Hong Kong as a way to ease into the jet lag. If I have some extra time before I leave, I would love to get a personalized facial.”
