1,600ft up – the world’s tallest hotel opens in Hong Kong

Overlooking one of the most spectacular skylines in the world, this hotel offers a birds eye view of Hong Kong from 1,600ft up in the air. The Ritz Carlton Hong Kong became the tallest hotel in the world, and the fourth tallest building, when it opened this week.

And just incase this view doesn’t keep you occupied for your whole trip, there are many other attractions. These come in the form of six restaurants, a sky-high spa with floor-to-ceiling windows and an indoor infinity pool overlooking the iconic harbour.

Herve Humler, president of luxury hotel chain said the building was a landmark hotel which was the culmination of many years of hard work:

‘We have been able to create truly spectacular so we can welcome our guests not just to the tallest hotel in the world, but also to one of the very best hotels in the world,’ he said. ‘We are taking luxury to new heights in every sense.’

You can also enjoy food from one of three restaurants situated in the hotel; including Tin Lung Heen, which is a Chinese restaurant serving refined Cantonese cuisine; Tosca, an Italian restaurant which offers Southern Italian cuisine and the very stylish The Lounge & Bar with fire pits and open kitchens.

The hotel also boasts a shopping mall and state of the art technology including WiFi, iPod docking stations, Blu-ray DVD players and flat screen TVs.

In addition, there is a chocolate-themed lounge named The Chocolate Library on 103rd floor and a stylish patisserie located on 9th floor.

Managers say the jewel in the crown is Ozone, located on the hotel’s 118th floor. It offers contemporary Asian tapas and signature cocktails to a backdrop of incredible views as well as the chance to drink on the world’s highest al fresco terrace.
