The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong opened last week on March 29th and is beginning to live up to its name as the world’s “highest” hotel. It doesn’t own the entire hotel building so what happened is that the Ritz-Carlton is located on the 102/F to 118/F of the International Commerce Centre (ICC) in Hong Kong and so by pun, that certainly “takes luxury to new heights in every sense”.

The stylish and contemporary interiors by Singapore’s LTW set the scene for this thoroughly modern hotel set in the heart of Hong Kong. The sense of arrival is breathtaking with views of Victoria Harbour and the iconic Hong Kong skyline as the backdrop. In order to get there you need in you first need get to the 9th floor before being transported up to the hotel lobby on the 103rd floor and this is one offbeat but chic way of seeing Hong Kong.

The hotel’s 312 guest rooms all offer spectacular city and harbour views. Starting at 50sqm for a Deluxe Room, and reaching 365sqm for the magnificent Ritz-Carlton Suite, rooms provide state-of-the-art technology including WiFi, iPod docking stations, blu-ray DVD players and flat screen TVs. In addition, Club room, you can enjoy the panoramic view from the Ritz-Carlton Club Lounge with complimentary food and beverage presentations 24 hours a day. The Club also gives you access to a dedicated Club Concierge, work stations, meeting rooms and WiFi throughout.

What everybody is talking about in Hong Kong has got to be Ozone. We are talking about Asian tapas, signature cocktails and a stylish wine list on the 118th floor and the world’s highest al fresco terrace where you can indulge in the incredible views over the city. We may be expecting a new benchmark for Hong Kong’s social and dining scene here at Ozone.

There is always Elements shopping mall just in case you were wondering what else you could do around the Ritz Carlton. Luxury brand names and fine dining without ever having to leave Kowloon Station.
