Too Cool For SchoolBA from Oxford, MBA from Harvard, CFA, Honorary Doctorate. No one would argue that your education wasn’t first rate. But when was the last time you had a private caviar tasting led by a world renowned chef, experienced a day of shopping in HK’s most sought after spots with your own expert personal stylist, or traveled by helicopter to a one-on-one golf Master Class with the pros? Welcome to The Peninsula Lifestyle Academy, launching this month with a highly targeted “curriculum” to help you delve even further into the best of this city, and featuring a group of the world’s most distinctive experts to keep everything from your taste buds to your golf swing polished to perfection.

Having a dinner party? Learn to make your own stunning centerpieces or how to coordinate a full table setting from flowers to candles to linens, with a private class led by The Peninsula’s resident floral designer (HK$3,888). Sweet tooth? Get a sneak preview of the back-of-house kitchens, where all the magic happens, before entering The Peninsula’s brand new, “Chocolate Room” where Maitre Chocolatier Marijn Coertjens will spill the beans with his insight into cocoa history and chocolate creation, while giving you an exclusive private chocolate tasting (HK$2,888). Prefer something savoury? Go for a palate-pleasing, perhaps life-changing caviar and champagne journey with the hotel’s head chef (HK$5,888). Tea and history? Immerse yourself in a few sips of HK culture with a tea appreciation class led by Spring Moon’s Chinese Tea Master.  Special event coming up? Get red carpet ready with a tailor-made style journey and VIP shopping experience including a chauffer driven Rolls-Royce limo, and access to bespoke consultations, private collection viewings, and limited edition pieces, all accompanied by your very own personal stylist (from HK$11,888). Working on your swing? Suit up for an exclusive “MAT-T Fitting Session” at HK’s only TaylorMade Performance Lab to assess your handicap, while their resident golf pro offers advice and insight to ensure you stay on top of your game (HK$2,388) or take to the skies with a round-trip helicopter transfer to a private lesson and day of golfing at the award winning Kau Sai Chau (HK$8,888).

Watch out Harvard, there’s a new school in town…
