THE RITZ-CARLTON Hong Kong


LOCATION: One of the most famous hotels in Hong Kong, the Ritz-Carlton occupies the 102nd to 118th floors of the International Commerce Centre building on the Kowloon side. It’s directly opposite HK Island and undeniably boasts the most


impressive panoramic views of Hong Kong. FIRST IMPRESSIONS: Not only is this the tallest hotel in Hong Kong but, as we were proudly told at check-in, it’s also the tallest hotel in the world. The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong takes luxury extremely seriously, with exquisite rooms, divine restaurants and awesome leisure facilities. While any stay here would be a delight, if you can upgrade to access the Club Lounge you’ll find the enthusiasm and service from the


beautifully attentive staff is well worth


the extra outlay. THE FACTS: Opened in 2011, this high-end hotel in west Kowloon offers 312 rooms and suites. On its top floor, the 118th, is an extremely trendy bar plus a swimming pool that lays claim to be the highest in the world at 484 metres above street level. There are several dining options but two of the stand-out restaurants are the two- Michelin-starred Chinese venue Tin Hung Leen and one-Michelin-starred Italian outlet Tosca. Both offer extraordinarily delicious fare in incredibly well-designed, deeply atmospheric surroundings. A third option, Cafe 103, is of a similarly high


standard but slightly less formal. A GOOD BASE FOR: With Kowloon’s famous shopping districts and nightlife


on your doorstep, the Ritz-Carlton is perfect for any visit to Hong Kong. Business travellers in particular can benefit from well-run transport links across the island. If it’s good enough for royalty and Hollywood stars, it will


certainly satisfy any luxury traveller. WOW: The hotel views are extraordinary – you are literally higher than birds of prey circling on thermal air currents – and you can see for miles on a clear day. The Tin Hung Leen restaurant is also truly amazing: its char tsui BBQ Iberian pork is the closest thing to ambrosia I’ve ever tasted!


BOOK IT: A Grand Deluxe Harbour View room leads in at £680.
