Located in one of the World’s tallest buildings, the Ritz Carlton certainly has the ‘wow’ factor. Situated on Hong Kong’s Kowloon side means that views over the city and Victoria Harbour are simply spectacular. Rooms come with a choice of three views: City, Harbour and Victoria Harbour. However, the height (the hotel lobby is on the 103rd floor) means that there is always something of interest to see. Facilities on site are spectacular, including the World’s highest swimming pool and seriously sexy spa (book in advance for the Harbour View treatment rooms). Dining options include Michelin-starred Chinese and Italian restaurants and the rooftop bar, ozone, is one of the city’s most popular due to its location on the 118th floor. Signature Ritz Carlton service makes this a very good hotel option, especially for those with a love of views. However, very popular with locals, occasionally the lobby and restaurants can feel a little busy.
