Peninsula Prep

By Chris Boyle


The Peninsula Academy is back in session with a host of new learning and activity programs at each of the nine Peninsula Hotels.

To keep both kids and adults “in class,” each property features a WOW! Program of once-in-a-lifetime bespoke experiences, many of which make use of Peninsula’s legendary transportation services. In Hong Kong, sip champagne in the private China Clipper on the hotel’s top floor, then helicopter off the roof for a scenic flight over the city, where a yacht transfer for a tour of the harbor and a chauffeured Rolls-Royce follows.

Other dream deliveries include a behind-the-curtain close-up of a hit Broadway show in New York City; princess training for aspiring young ladies that includes a horse-drawn pumpkin carriage ride and shopping spree in Chicago; an elephant ride and wine tasting in a Thai vineyard; a beach day that includes surfing and paddleboard lessons from a pro at the former Malibu estate of Olivia Newton-John; a private World War II helicopter and a tram tour of historic Corregidor Island Fortress outside Manila; and in Shanghai, a 1930s retro-noir historical adventure in traditional Chinese attire, private access to the Propaganda Museum, a guided tour of the city’s heritage buildings; and a photo shoot in your Rolls-Royce Phantom limousine.
