As one of the city’s favourite five-star hotels, W Hong Kong offers staycation packages with an unforgettable sea view.
W Hong Kong first opened its doors in 2008, and has remained one of the city’s most stylish destinations for stays, parties, and beauty treatments. Featuring a total of 351 guest rooms and 42 suites, the hotel occupies the first 25 floors of the Sun Hung Kai Properties-owned Cullinan II.
Perched just above luxury shopping mall Elements and commercial skyscraper International Commerce Centre (ICC), W Hong Kong is only a mere lift ride down to a wide collection of restaurants, boutiques, a cinema, as well as an ice-skating rink. What’s more, Central, a happening area with lifestyle stores, designer stores and eateries, is only one MTR station away.
Conceptualised by Yasumichi Morita of Japan’s Glamorous and Nic Graham of g+a in Australia, the stylish and contemporary hotel is is designed to resemble an upscale urban jungle, with guest rooms designed in eight different styles and equipped with breathtaking views of Hong Kong’s skyline.
Famed for its party scenes at one of the highest rooftop swimming pools in the world, the ambience at W Hong Kong is upbeat and uplifting. Its pool is perched on the 76th floor and is a calming and relaxing spot when it’s not surrounded by festivity. During our stay, we saw mostly families and couples taking a dip in the recently reopened pool, which had been closed for almost two months (no thanks to Covid).
The rooms, separated into 351 guest rooms and 42 suites, all offer stunning harbour views for guests to relax and unwind. Our room, the Fantastic Suite, featured a cosy king-size bed with high end in-room entertainment, Bliss bath products and a walk-in rain shower, while biodegradable amenities added an eco touch to the bathroom design.
