Opulence is the byword at the world’s highest hotel, sequestered in the top floors of a sleek tower smack the middle of Hong Kong’s financial center. The two lobbies are all crystal artwork, dark wood, recessed lighting, and high ceilings, with an appropriately Asian twist to the ceramic art and sculpture. In a city that’s so tightly packed, the spaciousness of its public areas (driven home by oversized chandeliers) and guestrooms feels extra-decadent, while floor-to-ceiling windows put the spectacular views on full display.
Bed and Bath
There are an astounding 13 different room categories, but all have bathtubs with separate showers, Nespresso machines, Asprey amenities, and jaw-dropping views of the city, mountains, or Victoria Harbour. The aesthetic, typical of the Ritz-Carlton brand, is classic yet subdued: neutral shades of beige and cream, plush furnishings (including chaise lounges from which to enjoy the vistas), and marble bathrooms with rainforest showerheads and LCD televisions.
Foodies won’t be wanting for a good meal heres—both restaurants are spangled with Michelin stars: Tosca earned one star for its creative Italian food while Tin Lung Heen holds two thanks to sublime Cantonese fine dining. For extra romance, book ahead for a seat at the tiny Almas Caviar bar, which serves Balik salmon as well as a selection of high-grade caviar accompanied by Champagne or vodka. On the top floor, Ozone (the world’s highest bar) stays open until 3 a.m. with DJs spinning for the beautiful people – a scene that might be topped only by the spa’s infinity swimming pool, which reaches to the walls of the building and creates the feeling of floating above the city.
In the Area
Navigating Kowloon’s jam-packed streets, markets, and buildings – all crowded with an astounding number of small shops and businesses – could take days. Alternatively (and especially for those with kids, spend a day exploring Hong Kong Disneyland, just a short metro ride from the hotel. Nothing, however, beats a cruise around the harbor, which provides ample opportunity for gawking at Hong Kong’s futuristic skyline – just ask the concierge to help you buy tickets.
How to Get There
We stayed at the Ritz Carlton in Hong Kong on the way to Tokyo for the marathon. The hotel was easy to get to (train from airport) with a station/mall right below the hotel. The hotel was fully booked upon check in but the room we booked still offered great views and amenities. Hard not to when the lobby is up over 100 floors! We had drinks and dinner at Ozone on the 118th floor. Our experience was top notch and the people watching was entertaining. Service all around was excellent, from our arrival with the front desk, to attendants in the gym, servers at Ozone, etc. The quality of the room was superb and as mentioned if you can catch a clear day the views are incredible. The fitness center (and pool) on 118 are top notch as well. We only had 24 hours in Hong Kong but made the most of it and highly recommend the property!!
Long time no visit this luxury hotel and I’ve visited twice in a week.
The reason to come here because of the Givenchy Afternoon tea inspired by Givenchy’s newly released Le Rose Perfecto lipstick collection. The tea set is so beautiful and fantastic. The quality of food and service are great! Thank you!
The exclusive fragrance “Black Orchid” is really great! This fragrance all time remind me I am getting into The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong!
Good to be back here! See you next time!
You can't help but fall in love with Ritz Carlton, and this property and its staff exceeded our expectations every chance they could. It's on the waterfront promenade, the views are spectacular and the level of service is unparalleled. I recommend the club level option for a trip of business or pleasure. The staff is pleasant, it's an ideal rendezvous spot, and the food offering was plentiful and delicious. The hotel is gorgeous, and your satisfaction is their top priority. The Elements Mall and the MTR are attached to the hotel.
Unbelievable hotel with even better service. Best example of how to treat a frequent travel and loyal Bonvoy member. From airport to check in to check out, absolute top notch. The new bar all my future hotel experiences will be measured by. Thank you to Pierre and team for making my visit something to remember.
My husband and I just returned from our 5 night stay in Hong Kong at the Ritz, which was one of the best - if not the best - hotel stays we've had. From the minute we checked in, service was impeccable and personalized. We were greeted and brought to our room by Michael of guest relations, who was there throughout our stay to make sure we had everything we needed and added multiple special touches including a welcome gift and an amazing array or sweets, champagne, balloons, and a rose for my birthday on our final day! Our room on the 110th floor had a beautiful view of Victoria harbour - we could have stayed there all day just looking out the window. Service throughout our stay continued to be great. We had drinks and caviar in the lounge with a perfect view of the evening light show. We also stopped into Ozone two nights in a row, where we had some nice chats with Alana from guest relations, who made sure we had a great time! Unfortunately, we never made it up to the pool, so I guess we will need to go back!
The hotel is very conveniently located above the Kowloon metro (easy walk through a nice shopping mall to get there), which is only one stop to Hong Kong station, and it was also super easy to take the airport express train to and from the airport from the Kowloon station. While you can't really walk anywhere from the hotel other than the mall, we were happy using the metro and Uber to get where we needed to go. Overall, an amazing stay!
