New Hong Kong Hotels That Should be on Your Radar

While travel was closed, Hong Kong’s hoteliers kept building. Some of its new hotels and hotel restaurants are already ranking as some of the best on the planet:

The St. Regis Hong Kong

The St. Regis Hong Kong marries New York blueblood hospitality and Hong Kong culture in a refined, contemporary property on Hong Kong Island overlooking the harbor.

It continues the traditions of St. Regis hotels worldwide, including daily champagne sabre ceremonies, butler service, and a local version of the Bloody Mary. Treat your taste buds at two Michelin-starred restaurants.

Rosewood Hong Kong

The first Rosewood in Hong Kong soars over Victoria Harbour in Kowloon, offering serenity, lush topiary, an indoor infinity pool and a bar with a terrace and epic views of the skyline.

Ten dining venues satisfy every palate. Restaurants include Cantonese, Italian, Asian tapas, and an Indian restaurant that’s already a starred entry in Hong Kong’s Michelin guide.

Regent Hong Kong

First opened as The Regent in 1980, for the last two decades this pillar of Hong Kong social life was an InterContinental Hotel. Following the Regent brand’s acquisition by IHG, the hotel underwent a transformation maximizing its harbourfront location and views before re-opening in 2023 with its original name.

The Lobby Lounge returns as the place to see, be seen and meet up for afternoon tea or Regent’s famous champagne ritual. Its Cantonese restaurant has already picked up two new Michelin stars.

Alva Hotel by Royal

Alva appeals to modern travellers who embrace contemporary design, healthy living, sustainability and smart technology including self check-in, smart phone keys and an in-room tablet controlling entertainment and environment.

Guests can enjoy terrace yoga and tai chi, a patio with minimalist vertical gardens, a rooftop pool with a view, and a co-working space in the green lobby. An all-day dining venue offers healthy eating cooking stations.

Fullerton Ocean Park Hotel Hong Kong

This wave-shaped resort on Hong Kong Islands’ south shore is adjacent to year-round water and theme parks. The hotel itself has a play zone, lagoon, and other kids’ entertainment.

Grown-ups will appreciate the understated elegance, infinity pool, seaside dining and oceanfront views.

The Silveri Hong Kong-MGallery

Minutes from the airport, with easy access to Hong Kong Disneyland and connected to an outlet mall, this new Accor property is more than a gateway hotel.

Views overlook garden terraces, and guests enjoy a yoga lawn, green spaces, and an outdoor pool perched above the town. Some guestrooms have private terraces with hot tubs or plunge pool.

Cathay Pacific: Celebrating 40 Years of Flying to the Americas

In 1983, Cathay Pacific’s inaugural flight from Hong Kong to Vancouver both launched its service to North America and marked the first nonstop flight between the two cities.

Today, Cathay Pacific is rebuilding its schedule into and out of its Hong Kong hub. It currently operates over 50 flights weekly out of six North American cities: Boston, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Toronto and Vancouver.

Featuring Business, Premium Economy, and Economy classes on all long-haul flights and First Class on select long-haul flights, Cathay Pacific’s offering meets every traveller’s needs.

Its award-winning lounges at Hong Kong International Airport set the scene for an onboard experience including contemporary Hong Kong and international menus, the largest entertainment library among Asian airlines and in-flight WiFi on long haul flights.

The airline has committed to achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 via sustainable fuel, new technology and increasingly efficient aircraft.
