If you’re planning a romantic getaway with your significant other, Hong Kong is the perfect destination. From its jaw-dropping landscape, to delicious food choices and exotic shopping, it's a city which offers a lot more than meets the eye. 

The InterContinental Hong Kong 

This iconic hotel straddles one of the world's most spectacular harbours in Kowloon, offering unrivalled views of Victoria Harbour and the neon-lit madness of Hong Kong Island, and a bonus is that it’s also just a stone’s throw from some of the city’s tourist and shopping areas. The hotel itself is a tranquil oasis of calm and sophistication, from the expansive Lobby Lounge, where you can experience a signature cocktail with a view, to its lineup of world class restaurants including Rech by Alain Ducasse, Nobu, and Yan Toh Heen, a 2-Michelin Star classic Chinese. Of the 500-plus guest rooms and suites, over two-thirds have views over Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong Island; they’re all sumptuously furnished with rich silks and Asian and contemporary art throughout, with indulgent bathrooms featuring Italian marble and separate large sunken tubs. The InterContinental's great facilities include a lavish Club InterContinental, an exclusive retreat for a business meeting, afternoon tea, or relaxing with a pre-dinner cocktail, and the Feng Shui-inspired I-Spa, along with a unique trio of outdoor spa pools set in granite with glass walls perched right on the harbour's edge.

The Upper House 

This luxury boutique hotel is a true “retreat in the sky”, set away from the vibrant chaos of the streets of Hong Kong below. From the moment you walk through the Bedonia stone doorway facade you get the feeling you’ve entered a private residence, which is kind of the point, with a calming water feature and impressively polished staff adding to the sense of calm and serenity. If you book an Upper Suite, you’ll be staying in accommodation more akin to a luxury apartment than a mere hotel room. Located on the 40th floor with a 270 degree views of Central, Victoria Harbour and Kowloon and Wan Chai, these suites are huge and packed with Asian/contemporary elegance. Features include a separate living area with a pantry, a huge bedroom with a separate dressing room, and a totally decadent spa-inspired bathroom with a deep limestone bathtub overlooking the city. If you can drag yourself from out of your room, be sure to visit the hotel's signature dining venue, Café Gray Deluxe, which enjoys a lofty position on the 21st floor, and  guarantees panoramic views overlooking Victoria Harbour. It also has an elegant bar attached to the restaurant which is the place to be at sunset.

Hotel Indigo 

Choosing where to stay in Hong Kong isn't easy, but Wan Chai is worth considering. One of Hong Kong's diverse and historic neighbourhoods, it's also now home to the Hotel Indigo Hong Kong Island. A dynamic addition to the character of Wan Chai since 2013, it’s a boutique hotel which cleverly fuses tradition with the ultra-modern, with all facilities a leisure traveller could want in a home away from home. There is a great lineup of guest room types, some with access to the Executive Club Level, and a range of suites to choose from. If you book a deluxe king you’ll enjoy a spacious corner room on a high floor, with two walls featuring floor to ceiling windows equipped with translucent blinds for privacy by day, and another wall adorned with an elaborate mosaic in pearl and pink in a shell design. The king sized bed as the centrepiece, and other features include a huge walk-in shower with a rainforest shower head, a Nespresso machine, complimentary bottled water and free Wi-Fi. As a guest, you also get a mobile phone with pre-programmed information for sightseeing, restaurant listings and apps including Instagram. Cafe  Post is the place for breakfast, lunch and dinner, a modern venue which is part al fresco and located on the second floor just up from the lobby. There's also a Skybar located on the 29th floor, and a small rooftop pool, with views across the city skyline in all directions.

The Langham 

This glamorous European-style property evokes a bygone era of travel, where tuxedo-clad staff members greet you on arrival in a formal, yet friendly, manner and take it upon themselves personally to make sure every aspect of your stay is perfect. Located in the heart of the shopping and entertainment district of Tsimshatsui, all of its 495 rooms and suites all feature top-of-the-range king size beds, luxurious fabrics, rich carpeting, and silk drapes and have modern bathrooms with separate shower and bath tub and the latest high tech amenities. There’s an impressive lineup of rooms from Superior to Executive, and a range of indulgent suites, and five main dining venues, including the three-Michelin starred Cantonese restaurant, T’ang Court. The Langham also has a Health Club and pool on the 15th floor, the Mediterranean style pool arguably the centrepiece of this part of the hotel. There's also a spa offering a full range of massage and beauty treatments, and a Langham Club which serves breakfast, snacks and light refreshments during an early evening happy hour.

    Can't Beat The Upper House

    Posted by Ruth V on 19th Feb 2019

    My husband and I stayed at the Upper House en-route to Europe last year and had an amazing stay. We were only there 3 nights and the weather was awful, but the small apartment we had catered to our needs and was a relaxing place to hang out. I usually prefer staying in Kowloon but the views from the Upper House were astonishing.

    The Indigo Is Great

    Posted by Marcus Teid on 19th Feb 2019

    I stayed at the Indigo last year on business and loved it. The rooms were packed with perks - although I didn't care for the see-through bathrooms although I know that's a design trend - and the hotel was well placed for out of work hours eating and drinking. Loved the rooftop bar too, although there are a lot of them in HK right now.
