10 Best Luxury Hotels in Hong Kong

Everyone needs a little "me" time. Enjoy yours by spoiling yourself at some of the most posh luxury hotels Hong Kong has to offer like The Peninsula. Indulge in ritzy, on-premises upscale dining or pamper yourself with plush king-sized beds and in-room deluxe hot tubs at luxury hotels like the Ritz-Carlton. If you travel extravagantly, Hong Kong luxury hotels are the only way to fly.

Almost all of Hong Kong's luxury hotels overlook Victoria Harbour, which is busy day and night as cruise liners, cargo ships, ferries, packet boats and pleasure yachts sail back and forth. So a harbor-view is an essential ingredient when you make your reservation.

Secondly, some of the city's finest restaurants are located in Hong Kong's luxury hotels. Nobu is the obvious name to conjure with, likewise Lung King Heen at the Four Seasons, the first Chinese restaurant in the world to be granted three Michelin stars.

And few visitors check out of Hong Kong's luxury hotels without praising the staff, dedicated professionals who make their workplaces some of the most delightful accommodations the world has to offer. Whether it's a grand dame like The Peninsula, or one of the younger generation, Hong Kong's luxury hotels rank among the best in the world.

There's one word that really sums up the Kerry Hotel, and that is "original".

Dining at the Kerry is amazing too, with a vast East-meets-West buffet at breakfast, and fun spaces like Dockyard (a gourmet food hall). The hotel is right above the Tsim Sha Tsui promenade, while a ferry shuttles across the water to North Point all day long. Design, location and ambiance are all just perfect.
