How Mid-Levels makes living a well-balanced life easier than ever

Wellness is the new luxury

By Craig Sauers

‘Work hard, play hard’ takes on new meaning when your playground is the gym and whole foods and a balanced diet give you the fuel to attack the day. There are many factors to optimal wellness other than hitting the gym, though, from being able to let your hair down and enjoy a night out with friends to finding your daily zen in green space or a good café. 

While Hongkongers know how to enjoy a life well-lived, there has been a steady shift toward a life well-balanced, too. And maybe no neighbourhood offers such a balance as Mid-Levels. Long some of the city’s hottest real estate, Mid-Levels has become the heart of a burgeoning wellness movement. From unrivalled access to green space to vegan cafés, these are some of the ways this neighbourhood helps you live the good life.

RECOMMENDED: Look good with Hong Kong's best places to shop activewear and feel good at Hong Kong's best spas.

How Mid-Levels makes living a well-balanced life easier than ever

Eco-friendly goodness

Restaurants Cafés Mid-Levels

A coffee shop along the Mid-Levels escalator, boasting a wide range of smoothies and juices, Blend and Grind doesn’t just help you re-energize with great cups of coffee – it helps you re-fuel and refresh while maintaining an eco-friendly lifestyle, too. Don’t expect any additives or preservatives. The smoothies and juices here are made from fresh, natural produce. Better yet, they’re served in compostable packaging made from plants, so you can feel good about your impact – or lack thereof – on the environment.

Destress high above the chaos

Restaurants Contemporary European The Peak

Housed in a Grade II historic building, The Peak Lookout hides high above the noise of the streets in Central. Instead of hearing car horns, you’re serenaded to the sound of chirping birds at this restaurant. Those who need a daily dose of green can get their fix on the patio here, too, as it’s surrounded by towering banyan trees and tropical vegetation. Setting aside, the food is pure comfort: Indian curries, Thai stir-fries, meat and fish cooked on the grill and more.


Next-level workouts

Property Mid-Levels

Treating the body right requires sticking to a regular fitness routine. Living in Mid-Levels makes it easy to get in a good workout without having to travel far to do it. Luxury apartment complex Queen’s Garden has a well-equipped wellness centre that goes beyond free weights and treadmills. There’s a swimming pool, a kinesis wall, a yoga and dance studio complete with trainer-led classes, a spacious spa, a golf simulator and multiple ball courts. Tenants even have access to a private physical therapist and qualified fitness instructor. Staying fit doesn’t get much more convenient than that.

Green space for your daily zen

Attractions Central

The Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens is one of the oldest such facilities in the world. It’s also the oldest park in Hong Kong, and Mid-Levels residents have easy access to this well-preserved green space. Drop in during the morning as the animals stir to life; the call of the tropical birds is enough to make you feel as if you’re on a secluded island in the Andaman Sea. 


Feather & Bone Mid-levels

One-stop organic shopping

The benefits of a natural diet are clearer than ever. It’s not just great for the body. It’s also great for the environment. Conveniently enough, folks who live in Mid-Levels don’t have to go far to get their organic goods. One-stop organic shop Spicebox sells all-natural teas, spices, snacks and superfoods, as well as gluten-free products and a range of natural home care and personal goods. The latest branch of Feather & Bone, meanwhile, brings premium natural products closer to the doorstep than ever. The Mid-Levels outpost is spread across two buildings: on one side of the road is the shop and deli, selling all the good stuff you’ve come to expect from the brand, while the café lies on the other side, offering healthy meals all day.
