Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong Opens as World’s Highest Hotel
There are views, and then there are v-i-e-w-s. Starting tomorrow, any guest checking into the brand new Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong will get an eyeful of the latter—birds-eye panoramas of Victoria Harbour and the shiny HK skyline. As the world’s “highest” hotel, the record-breaking property now occupies floors 102 to 118 of the well-located International Commerce Center, with 312 rooms in all.
There are some heavy-hitting names associated with the new Ritz HK—interiors by Singapore’s LTW Designworks (the team also designed the Four Seasons Langkawi, Malaysia, and the Mandarin Oriental Sanya Hainan, China), a spa by ESPA, and restaurants (Cantonese and Italian) by Japan’s Spin Design Studio and Wonderwall. There’s even a “Chocolate Library,” a pool with an adjacent 23 x 92-foot LED screen, a bar with crystal fire pits, and an outdoor terrace lounge—also the world’s highest—on the 118th floor.
All this, at 1,600+ feet in the air. Check us in!
