Maybe the Ritz-Carlton saw the Armani Hotel Dubai in the Burj Khalifa (the current tallest building in the world) as a challenge, or maybe the opening of the tallest hotel in the world was just another way for the legendary hotel group to make an unforgettable impression, but, whatever the case, the Ritz-Carlton’s re-entry into Hong Kong is prepped to be one of the biggest and grandest events in hotel history.
Standing 118 stories high, the Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong will become the flagship property for the Ritz-Carlton in Asia and occupy levels 102 to 118 in the International Commerce Centre, Hong Kong’s tallest building. The building sits directly across Victoria Harbour and offers magnificent views of the harbor, Hong Kong Island and The New Territories.
The 312 guest room hotel will feature an indoor infinity pool, spa, gym, rooftop restaurant and restaurants on lower floors. The hotel’s guest rooms will occupy floors 106-117. The interior design of the hotel depicts a modern and trendy vibe in the restaurants and lobby areas, with a soft and somewhat romantic twist in other sections of the hotel.
The opening of the Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong, which will be the world’s highest hotel is still about five months away but already the hotel has 20 bookings for wedding receptions and is getting six or seven more enquiries a day.
