1. The Upper House
The Upper House is a lavish boutique hotel designed by architect Andre Fu. This calming contemporary hotel floats above the city on the 38h to 48th floors and is boutique in size for Hong Kong, with only 117 studios and suites.
The hotel actually sits above the JW Marriott, and the Pacific Place Mall, with the Conrad and Shangri-La only steps away. Surrounded by contemporary galleries, boutiques, Hong Kong Park, and eateries lining Starstreet Precinct, you couldn’t wish for a better location. There’s also a cinema nearby, and the trams (street and Peak) are within walking distance for exploring the city, as is the nearest Mass Transit Railway (MTR) station.
The Upper House has its own individual style and ambiance. The lobby has an Asian feel with wood, glass, and limestone decor, giving the space a natural feel. Rooms and suites are sleek and feature natural materials and cute features like cushioned window seats and large bathrooms with bathtubs and generous amenity kits by British company Bamford. Guests also get complimentary snacks and drinks (including beer but not wine) and a yoga mat. Compared with other luxury hotels in Hong Kong, this hotel’s differentiator is that all rooms are large. Even the standard rooms are big at 730 sq ft.
There’s no pool or spa at The Upper House, but there is a compact gym. Enjoy thrilling views from Level 49 at Café Gray Deluxe, the hotel’s European with a hint of an Asia restaurant. Café Gray Bar is next door. The Lawn on the sixth floor is your other option for drinks and offers for alfresco cocktails.
Escape Hong Kong’s frenetic energy at this peaceful hotel haven in the skies.
2. Four Seasons Hong Kong
An urban powerhouse encapsulating Hong Kong’s irresistible energy, the landmark Four Seasons Hong Kong is the preferred address for guests who want to stay in the middle of it all. With eight Michelin stars and a Zen-inspiring Spa under one roof, Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong is a culinary and wellness destination at the edge of storied Victoria Harbour.
The Four Seasons Hong Kong Executive Club Lounge, is one of the few 24-hour lounges in Hong Kong. It combines luxury furnishings with an outdoor wraparound balcony on the 45th floor where you can breathe some fresh air. This alfresco space, along with the excellent food and drinks offering, makes this lounge one of the best in Hong Kong.
Wherever you are in the world, Four Seasons hotels are consistently one of the best hotels in that city or resort. There isn’t a Four Seasons loyalty program, so you will never be able to book a free stay by racking up and redeeming points, or by collecting points on your credit card and spending them at a Four Seasons hotel. It can’t be done. But you can get discounts at Four Seasons hotels and benefit from special rewards at Four Seasons hotels for no extra cost by booking your next stay via our luxury travel concierge.
3. Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong
The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong, is the highest hotel in the world with one of the most refined atmospheres. Occupying the 1,588-foot International Commerce Centre on Kowloon’s uppermost floors, the hotel boasts beguiling views of Victoria Harbour and the Hong Kong skyline. Enjoy a cocktail at the rooftop Ozone bar followed by Italian specialties at Michelin-starred Tosca or Cantonese favorites at two-Michelin-starred Tin Lung Heen. The Ritz-Carlton Spa takes wellness to new heights; feel the sensation of swimming in the infinity-edge pool overlooking the harbor.
Soaring above the sea and secluded from the rest of the hotel, The Ritz-Carlton Club Level offers an elevated experience reserved for guests staying in Club Level rooms and suites. Among the additional amenities is access to the Club Lounge, a dedicated space offering a library, meeting room, complimentary culinary presentations, and personalized business services.

This lounge is mega!
4. InterContinental Hong Kong
InterContinental Hong Kong, one of the city’s most stylish hotels, offers a spectacular waterfront location in Kowloon, overlooking Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong Island. Contemporary guest rooms come with high-speed Internet, a Bose entertainment system, and 24-hour butler and room service. Take a dip in the infinity spa pools overlooking the harbor or visit the feng shui-inspired I-Spa. Dining choices include NOBU and two Michelin-starred restaurants – Yan Toh Heen for exquisite Cantonese cuisine and Rech by Alain Ducasse for fresh seafood.
The InterContinental Hong Kong, Club Intercontinental is located on the first floor of the InterContinental Hong Kong, but still offers stunning views over the lobby lounge, Victoria Harbour, and the Hong Kong skyline. The Club Lounge serves buffet breakfast, a really great afternoon tea (impressive afternoon tea is a feature of many IC lounges; the one offered in the London Club Intercontinental is also impressive) and evening cocktails with Moet & Chandon champagne, premium wines, spirits, and tempting hors d’oeuvres (cheeses and canapes).
5. The St. Regis Hong Kong
The St. Regis Hong Kong, a highly anticipated, residential-style retreat in the island’s vibrant Wan Chai district. Guests are wowed by the expert eye of interior designer André Fu, who masterminded the hotel’s architectural and cultural details.

6. Lanson Place Hotel Hong Kong
Lanson Place Hotel Hong Kong is definitely one of the best luxury boutique hotels in Hong Kong. It is part of what is probably the best boutique hotel brand, “Small Luxury Hotels of The WorldTM.” This stylish city retreat is nestled in the heart of Causeway Bay with 194-rooms, beautiful interiors, and seamless service, providing a comforting and calm environment just minutes from the city’s excitement.
The building and interiors’ style are Belle Époque, so a stay here engulfs guests in a haven of European luxury, hidden in Hong Kong’s central district of Causeway Bay. The lime green feature wall in the reception area and whimsical purples in the murals on the bar area walls showcase this hotel’s colorful vibe.
Yes, it is sophisticated here with a French feel, but the hotel is also designed with fun in mind. Combine this fun with luxury and the excellent staff employed by this hotel, and you will begin to see exactly why this hotel is really special.
Facilities include an elegant lounge featuring a library space, and a well-equipped gym, all of which are exclusive to guests. Rooms, suites, and penthouse suites are complemented with chic contemporary interiors, generous kitchen areas, and clever design innovations.
7. Hotel ICON
Hotel ICON is situated in lively Kowloon. We think that this hotel’s highlight is the rooftop pool, which overlooks Victoria harbor, and the iconic and colorful Hong Kong Skyline. There are three restaurants with great reputations, a cracking spa, and an impressive art collection. Hong Kong Island is a 20-minute drive away, but this hotel’s location in the thick of Kowloon ensures there is bucket loads to do both by day and by night.
8. The Murray
The Murray boutique hotel is a member of The Leading Hotels of the World and is not to be missed. Located along legendary Cotton Tree Drive in the heart of Hong Kong. This contemporary urban sanctuary features 336 sophisticated, spacious suites and guestrooms across 25 storeys and five elegant dining destinations, including a glamorous rooftop restaurant and bar with panoramic views. The hotel’s terraces showcase the city, Hong Kong Park, and Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens.
