Three-Michelin-star restaurants. Fleets of bespoke Rolls-Royce limousines. Full-service wellness sanctuaries. You won’t believe what Hong Kong’s most glamorous hotels have to offer.

The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong

Looking for a room with a view? Then book a bed in the world’s highest hotel. Occupying floors 102-118 of the West Kowloon district’s International Commerce Centre, The Ritz-Carlton provides panoramic views of Victoria Harbour, almost 500 metres (1,600 feet) below. The facilities in the 312 rooms are also five-star – reserve the Presidential Suite at the very top for the loftiest vista, a private spa and whirlpool, a personal butler and airport transfers in a Rolls-Royce.

The 399 rooms enjoy views either of the harbour or the peak on Hong Kong Island, as well as access to a bevvy of pools – there’s a lap pool, plunge pool, whirlpool and even an infinity pool with underwater music.
