One of the joys of visiting Hong Kong is staying in one of the city’s hotels, which include historic and world-famous venues, major international chains, and local brands. Most hotels are concentrated on Hong Kong Island and in Kowloon, but you'll find more and more opening further south and across the new territories. Check out some of the latest openings for 2019.
Rosewood Hong Kong
Taking prime position on the new Victoria Dockside in Tsim Sha Tsui, this new opening has given everyone good reason to flock to the Kowloon waterfront.

Eight dining outlets feature, including Holt’s Café, which turns Hong Kong’s traditional cha chaan teng dining culture on its head. An impressive fitness centre, infinity swimming pool and Asaya, Rosewood’s innovative holistic wellness concept, completes this hotly-awaited establishment.
The St. Regis Hong Kong
Last year, Marriott International announced it would be setting up operations in Hong Kong and in April this year The St. Regis Hong Kong flung its gilded doors open to the public. With the new Wan Chai property, their goal is to re-envision The St. Regis legacy for the 21st century, and in doing so, set a new benchmark for the group’s next generation of hotels and resorts globally. At 129 rooms, the hotel’s total occupancy registers as unusually boutique — prioritising space and comfort over maximum efficiency.
There is an impressive array of award-winning chefs lined up to take up residence in the newly minted The St. Regis with cuisine from all over the world, there will most certainly be something for all guests.
