Decadent rooms, private Pool Parties and champagne brunches. It can only mean one thing, a stay at W Hong Kong, one of MSK’s favourite hotels in Hong Kong.
The W Hong Kong is located on the Kowloon side of the city, conveniently next to the ICC (tick any shopping that needs to be done). The hotel oozes cool and as soon as you are in the bright, art-covered reception the vibe hits you.
The hotel staff check you in and it’s up to the rooms to start enjoying the W Hong Kong experience. The rooms are perfect for the city. They have awesome views of the iconic ‘Hong Kong’ skyline, which comes alive every night, so despite being a little geriatric, it is worth taking a pew and having a good watch.
The rooms are luxurious with beautiful beds, elegant bathrooms and just about the biggest TVs they could fit onto the walls. The cupboard space is massive, which is perfect for anyone visiting. This is for several reasons; firstly 100% humidity means spare clothes are necessary and secondly Hong Kong is a slick place with slick people and slick bars, so dress up and look your best, everyone else does!
Being a W Hotel, there is an element of fun everywhere. The in-room mini bar sets the tone with bottles of Patron Tequila and Belvedere vodka. A DJ plays every night in the downstairs bar and they have a somewhat legendary Sunday brunch. For roughly £70 per person you can feast on fabulous food (literally anything from lobsters, to char sui and cupcakes) and sup on as much Verve Clicquot as you want, from 12:00-15:00 – it’s a must.
The swimming pool of the W Hong Kong is what takes this hotel to the next level. An infinity pool, 76 floors up that overlooks the city. It is fabulous. From an early morning swim to a late night pool party, this is the place to be and the place to be seen.
Hong Kong is not a place that stops, but if you need to unwind the W Hong Kong has a blissful spa on site, so you can massage away any stress, rejuvenate and head out ready to rock.
Standard rooms at the W Hong Kong cost from £250 per night
