Peninsula Merchandising, the branded product developer for Peninsula Hotels, has opened its first airport boutique. Its newest boutique is inside the ‘I Love Hong Kong’ retail zone in the passenger departure hall at Hong Kong International Airport. The new 644-square-foot store offers a selection of the hotel group’s delicacies, including artisanal chocolates, cookies, exquisite Peninsula tea blends and a range of fine gifts that allow passengers to take a slice of The Peninsula lifestyle back home, or pick up a last minute gift.
The new boutique also carries a range of exclusive products from three different flavoured hand-dipped chocolate cookies made from the world’s finest ingredients, to flavourful packages of assorted fine Peninsula Blend Western and Chinese teas in special gift boxes featuring archival images and luggage tags which recall history of The Peninsula Hotels.
Other temptations include the decadent artisanal chocolates, hand-made by Maitre Chocolatier, Marijn Coertjens who won the third place of “World Chocolate Masters” in Oct 2015.
Inspired by travel, new boutique was created by interior design firm Yabu Pushelberg, which has a long-established relationship with the hotel brand. Meant to mimic the inside of a trunk, the store features wooden and leather fixtures, while marble countertops add a modern appeal.
