Hotel Intercontinental – Hong Kong, China
Cutting-Edge Elegance on the Kowloon Waterfront
Perched at the tip of Kowloon Peninsula and actually built out over the harbor’s edge, the Intercontinental isn’t just the city’s haute hotel, it’s the social vortex, the ultimate see-and-be-seen scene. The heart-stopping views from its 40-foot windows make this one of the most visually stunning hotel lobbies in the world.
The Intercontinental shares this 180-degree uninterrupted view of Hong Kong’s skyline and unceasing water traffic with its newly refurbished Lobby Lounge, and Yü, the hotel’s unique seafood restaurant and oyster bar, where your dinner is still swimming in floor-to-ceiling water tanks as you enter.
The Intercontinental’s famed Chinese restaurant, Yan Toh Heen, is lauded as one of Asia’s – and the world’s – finest. Traditional Cantonese cuisine is served on exquisite table settings of hand-carved jade and ivory. Guest rooms share the same recurring view, one of the most exciting in the world at any time of day, and the deluxe terrace suites have their own outdoor Jacuzzis.
Hong Kong boasts some of the world’s most opulent, service-minded hotels, and the Intercontinental is one of the best places to be coddled and pampered, to revel in white-glove service and treat your palate and eye to meals with views you didn’t think existed, hoping your business expense account is picking it all up.
