Wan Chai is becoming a popular place to live. An eclectic mix of East meets West and where the Old and New co-exist. Recently I had the opportunity to spend a fantastic weekend at the newest building in the area.
The Luna, 18 Lun Fat Street, is a brand new serviced apartment located in the heart of Wan Chai. What impressed me the most? The Luna was a place where I felt like I was at home. The staff were excellent and the quality of the room was impressive. Vanke Hong Kong is the developer and what a brilliant job they have done.
My unit for the weekend was fully furnished and even equipped with an in-room washer & dryer (which is not easy to find in serviced apartments!) The room was on a high floor where I overlooked the peaceful yet mesmerizing HK city lights whilst among the busy and bustling streets of Wan Chai.
I was going to attempt to cook something on the first night and chill out on the balcony. I could have cooked a 3 course meal the kitchen was so well equipped. But my friends suggested I go out – they know how good a cook I am and despite good cooking facilities in the apartment, I would be better trying a new restaurant! Their pick was the Pinot Duck, which was just downstairs conveniently in the building of The Luna, and they were right – it was definitely better than my cooking!
Conveniently located near the MTR, bus and tram routes, The Luna is conveniently located in Wan Chai which means you can pick which mode of transport to use to best escape the HK traffic jams in the mornings and evenings! It is even a walkable distance to the CBD although because I stayed the weekend, I didn’t go in to Central!
There is also a wide range of excellent restaurants and bars, everyone knows I am a fan of diversity, well you can pick both the classy fine-dining options with a rooftop view and also the best cheap eats in Wan Chai. You can choose your style of chillaxing.
I didn’t go hiking that weekend but you can easily find a bus to a hiking spot or a beach. If you want something less strenuous then Bowen Path is walking distance. For those of you who know me well, you know that I appreciate the old and the new and there are also a few historical places worth exploring in the district, including the Blue House Cluster and the Old Wan Chai Post Office.
With a beautifully renovated space in such a great location with an excellent and diverse neighbourhood on the door step, the price is absolutely affordable (from HK$28,200 monthly up).

“Finding the right place to stay can make all the difference.” is not just my motto, but also true advice to anyone who is looking for a new home.
