Best Luxury Hotels In Hong Kong

Hong Kong has long since shed its cloak of smog both figuratively and literally. With nearly thirty years of independence from the British Commonwealth under its belt, this region of China has been putting in the work to fully establish itself as one of Asia’s most bustling and cosmopolitan cities, but this isn’t just a playground for the suited and booted business men and bankers but also those who enjoy a slice of glitz and glamour… in spades.

With boundaries being broken in both the food and drink sector, Hong Kong boasts restaurants and bars in the ‘World’s Best 100 list, along with well-known favourites of the glitterati such as Nobu and Hakkasan taking up residence, this is the place to enjoy a slice of the luxury lifestyle. With jaw-dropping rooftop bars offering views of the iconic skyline a plenty, unparalleled shopping and some of the best hotels in the world, this destination deserves a spot on your ‘must visit’ list, if only just to soak up the palpable energy and dazzling nightlife.

If tradition and culture are more your thing all the usual players are on offer, be it antiques and curios on Cat Street, visiting a traditional tea house or getting a tailor-made suit but those who matter know this city really comes to life after dark.

Kerry Hotel Hong Kong

(5 stars)

The Shangri-La group also offers the Kerry Hotel in Hong Kong. An urban resort in the Hung Ho district, its designer Andre Fu (responsible for the decor of the first hotel of our list) has once again woven his award-winning magic. Motifs reflect the neighbouring sea, while the outdoors is brought in, through the hotel’s signature aroma ‘Walk in the Woods’. 546 rooms all have minibars and Nespresso machines and all three eateries have alfresco areas – there’s even a Starbucks. Work out at Kerry Sports Base Camp, take a swim in the infinity pool, unwind at the spa, or simply watch the world go by on water as you lounge on the harbourside terrace.

The Langham Hong Kong

(5 stars)

Bringing a little slice of London to the east is The Langham. While the first of the chain was established in the 1800s, this one didn’t arrive in Hong Kong until 2003. Sporting plenty of European elegance with chandeliers, rococo features and Wedgewood china, there’s also a wealth of Chinese art and a fondness for pastels and dusky pink throughout its furnishings. The Chuan Body and Soul Spa includes an outdoor heated pool and hot tub, while the Michelin-starred T’ang has some of the best Cantonese food to be found anywhere on earth.

The St. Regis Hong Kong

(5 stars)

The next Marriot hotel on our list is found in Wan Chai and caused a stir with its grand unveiling in 2019. With lashings of marble, muted tones, vintage deco lamps and high ceilinged lobbies, there’s a distinct sanctuary vibe about the 129-roomed St Regis. By night, you can swim under the stars, dine to the sound of jazz musicians, feast on French cuisine from chef Olivier Elzer, or try chef Hung Chi-Kwong’s Cantonese plates. An outdoor terrace with a calming water feature offers further feelings of tranquillity, contrasting the bustle on its doorstep. And be sure to try its own take on a Bloody Mary, the Canto Mary, crafted with tangerine peel and whisky (or one of the bar’s 800 wines and 100 champagnes).

(5 stars)

Relatively intimate with 98 rooms and 13 suites, this Asian chain hotel is found in the heart of the business district, conveniently placed for work travellers.
