Luxury Hotels in Hong Kong
As it is, Hong Kong is already an amazing destination, throw in a stay at one of its epic luxury hotels and
you won't want to leave at all. Hong Kong is home to some of the world's top 5-star hotels.
5-Star Luxury hotels in Hong Kong are renowned for their insane views, lavish
facilities and spotless service, and moreover, this is where you find a great majority of the territory's top restaurants and spas.
There are many spectacular luxury digs in the city ranging from the old iconic landmarks, the Peninsula and the Mandarin Oriental,
to the major international luxury hotel brands which are all present in Hong Kong, some with several
flagship hotels on both sides of the Harbour.
You can expect
rooms to be generous
in size, with jaw-dropping views, designer toiletries, adapters to
fit any device from any place in the planet, and staff that addresses you by name.
The out-of-this-world facilites come of course with out-of-this-world prices. But don't be put off, many luxury hotels
offer holiday and weekend packages as well as last-minute promotions. You can check all current special offers here. And also don't forget to check your frequent flyer plan or hotel
rewards program, I can't think of a better use for those accumulated points!
One thing that sticks out surprisingly enough, is the fact that Wi-Fi is not provided free of charge at many of these luxury establishments,
which when you consider the amount of money you are forking over already and the fact that you are in one of the world's most connected cities,
does not make any sense in this day and age. You can circumvent the extra charge
by signing up for their Rewards Programmes in most cases, or you can pick up a pocket 3G Wi-Fi device at the Airport which cost US$2 per day for
1GB data per day or US$4 per day unlimited.
And while you're splurging, go all the way and book the Executive Lounge packages which are offered at most of these hotels, they
are well worth the extra perks.
