Some hotels in Hong Kong are landmarks in and of themselves. These beautiful, breathtaking buildings feature top-of-the-line amenities, lavish architecture and decor and plenty of comfort for visitors.
After you see these 27 stunning luxury hotels that we’ve found here, you might want to book a trip just so you can never leave your room.
The Langham Hong Kong
In the middle of the popular Tsim Sha Tsui district, the Langham Hong Kong will leave you breathless as you study its crystalline chandelier; large, domed ceilings; and smooth, polished marble floors. That’s just the lobby.
Travel+Leisure voted the Langham one of The World’s Best Hotels, in no small part because of its incredible Penthouse Suite, which features a dining room decorated with real silk and mirrors studded with diamonds.
The quirky artwork and overall design of the Jervois is due to the influence of Christian Liaigre, the interior designer who prefers “warm tones of fabric and luxurious marble finishes” to “bring subtle textures throughout the interiors.”
The rooms here are simple, clean and colorful but boast rich accessories like a rain shower, marble sinks, Italian sheets, goose down pillows and leather bed frames. The Jervois is located near Sheung Wan Central.
The Island Shangri-La
Whether you’re traveling for business or pleasure, at the Island Shangri-La you’ll feel like royalty. The first thing many guests notice here is a silk painting called the “Great Motherland of China,” which ascends the building’s first 16 stories. Often the site of weddings, the Island Shangri-La was highly rated by Conde Nast Traveler for its cuisine, so make sure to try its Cafe TOO or Restaurant Petrus, which overlooks the picturesque Victoria Harbour.
99 Bonham owes its beauty to the talents of Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel and Partners, an Italian design firm. “The monolithic glass facade and reflective tiles bring an almost abstract quality to the building, like that of a desirable object,” hotel managers say. “The interior design brings this theme to a human scale with a range of grey tones as well as an interplay between shiny and neutral surfaces.”
