The Ritz-Carlton will soon hold the title for “tallest hotel in the world” when their latest luxury resort opens next year in the newly completed International Commerce Centre (ICC) in Hong Kong. The ICC just opened in 2010 and now claims top billing for the tallest building in Hong Kong.
This new Ritz-Carlton luxury resort will occupy the 102nd to 118th floors, offering unsurpassed views of Victoria Harbour, Hong Kong Island, and out to the New Territories. Six dining venues will be located on the 102nd floor, including Chinese and Italian restaurants, a lobby lounge, tea lounge, and even an alfresco rooftop bar. Each of the restaurants and bars will offer panoramic views of Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong Island. Imagine the opportunity to watch the nightly laser show from your own table in the sky!
The hotel will have 312 guest rooms, all of which will also offer spectacular views into the city and surrounding harbor. Choice accommodations will include Deluxe Harbor Rooms, Grand Harbour Suites, a magnificent Ritz-Carlton Suite and Ritz-Carlton Club Rooms with access to the Ritz-Carlton Club Lounge. Like other Ritz-Carlton lounges, the Club will offer complimentary food and beverage presentations 24 hours a day, a dedicated Club Concierge, work stations, meeting rooms, and WiFi throughout.
On the 116th floor, the ESPA will feature nearly 900 square meters of treatment rooms, each of which will have floor-to-ceiling windows. The fitness center will include state-of-the-art gym equipment, but with a truly unique feature — a massive LED screen ceiling over the outdoor pool.
