Escape to Exotic Experiences This Summer at The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong

Luxury Hotel Positions Travelers to Discover Local Attractions, World-Class Dining and Unparalleled Indulgences

HONG KONG, CHINA--(Marketwired - May 12, 2016) - With summer just around the corner, now is the time to explore the cosmopolitan city of Hong Kong. From culturally significant temples to modern amusement parks, relaxing rituals to Michelin-starred dining, this dynamic city has something for every summer traveler. And The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong positions you to enjoy it all to the fullest.

Situated on the southern peninsula of Victoria Harbour, this luxury Hong Kong hotel soars well above the city -- it is the tallest of all waterfront hotels -- and accordingly affords breathtaking, panoramic views.

These vistas inspire visitors to seek out one-of-a-kind experiences, such as the following:

  • The Big Buddha and Po Lin Monastery: See the legendary, 34-meter bronze statue in person.
  • Ocean Park Hong Kong: Take the kids to Hong Kong's action-packed amusement park featuring rides and animal exhibits.
  • Hong Kong Disneyland: The happiest place on earth has a Hong Kong address where you can see all your favorite characters, rides and even a fireworks show each evening.
  • Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car: Take in the view from the gondola lift before exploring the adjoining retail and entertainment venue.
  • Man Mo Temple and Wong Tai Sin: Explore the similarities and differences between Hong Kong's most iconic temples.
  • Aqua Luna Harbour Cruise: Enjoy a full experience of Victoria Harbour during a 45-minute cruise.

For those who prefer more relaxing activities, The Ritz-Carlton Spa by ESPA promises a restorative escape. Treatments incorporate traditional Asian therapeutic traditions in enticing ways, as with the luxurious lava shell body treatment.

Of course, shopping can feel equally restorative, and the 5-star hotel's accessible location near Tsim Sha Tsui puts local souvenir shopping within easy reach. The property is also near the Ladies' Market in Mongkok and just steps away from Elements Mall, while Stanley Market is slightly further afield but promises an exciting range of one-of-a-kind items.

To stay energized, visitors enjoy a wide range of dining options, from local fare in Tsim Sha Tsui to Michelin-starred cuisine at the hotel. Few hotels in Kowloon, Hong Kong can top the number and variety of acclaimed dining that this property does. Indulge in innovative Italian cuisine at Michelin-starred Tosca, where Chef Pino Lavarra pairs his legendary dishes with stunning skyline views. Or bite into local delicacies at the two-star Michelin Tin Lung Heen Cantonese Restaurant, which highlights traditional culinary techniques.

No matter where you dine, visiting the highest bar in the world, Ozone, is a must during your stay. Live music, DJs, creative cocktails and a variety of tapas and sushi make this party in the sky one not to miss.

Offering a variety of accommodations, from harbor-view guest rooms to club level rooms and spectacular suites, this Hong Kong hotel is ideally suited to couples, families and solo adventurers. Guests will find a range of amenities to enhance their stay, including the Ritz Kids program, which creatively engages children in local culture and customs, as well as a Club Lounge featuring numerous benefits and personalized services. And for those who aren't in a hurry to pack up and go, the hotel offers packages designed for longer stays.

With so much to see and do -- and so many ways to experience it all from the tallest hotel in Hong Kong -- this summer promises a vacation that reaches new heights.
