The new 546-room Kerry Hotel, Hong Kong opened in late April as the city’s first urban resort with inspiring outdoor living spaces, panoramic views of Victoria Harbour, welcoming restaurants and bars, and extensive recreation and meeting facilities. The debut of the hotel is an important milestone for Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts as it marks its fourth property in the city and the new flagship hotel of the Kerry brand.

Conceived by internationally renowned interior designer André Fu and award winning architect Rocco Design, the new build 16-story hotel is the first to open on the Kowloon waterfront since 1995. Providing guests with uninterrupted views over Victoria Harbour, the hotel’s multi-level podium design with extensive outdoor landscaped terraces seamlessly connect indoor and outdoor space and physically embody the hotel’s approach to relaxed luxury.

Arrival Experience

Upon arrival in the lobby, guests are welcomed by remarkable views of the waterfront through a curved glass window that soars eight meters (about 26 feet) high and spans a width of 80 meters (about 262 feet). The lobby opens onto a vast outdoor garden with topiary hedges. Adding to the stylish decor is a 50-meter (about 164-foot) Turkish onyx marble wall leading to the Grand Staircase and Grand Ballroom.

Guestrooms and Suites

Over 60 percent of Kerry Hotel’s guestrooms feature panoramic views of the Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong Island skyline. Ranging from 42 square meters (about 452 square feet) for a Deluxe Sea View Room to 294 square meters (about 3,165 square feet) in the Presidential Suite, each guestroom is configured with contemporary comforts in mind and includes a custom-built open closet, complimentary mini-bar choices upon arrival, Internet Protocol Television with free videos on demand and bespoke lighting pendants infused with subtle Asian references.

The Club, a 300-square-meter (about 3,230-square-foot) lounge, provides guests staying on dedicated floors with personalized services and amenities. An e-concierge attends to guests’ needs both inside and outside of the hotel.

Restaurants and Bars

Unique to Hong Kong, all five of the hotel’s restaurants as well as its bar offer outdoor landscaped terraces overlooking Victoria Harbour – the perfect backdrop for the city’s newest dining destination.

Hung Tong, the hotel’s signature restaurant, honors Hong Kong’s past while creating a modern experience of Chinese cuisine. Inspired by the 19th century shipyards that once dominated the Hung Hom Bay neighborhood, red brick walls evoke the feeling of “old Hong Kong” and are complemented by traditional metal gates, wooden vents, vintage-inspired chairs and tinted glass pendants.

The all-day dining restaurant, Big Bay Café, takes guests on a global culinary experience with seven individual pavilions dedicated to specific cooking methods and local and international cuisines. Aside from the buffet, diners can opt for lighter fare at the Grab n’ Go Cart at the restaurant’s entrance, where fresh pastries, deluxe sandwiches and premium coffee will be made daily for takeaway.

Sweeping views of the Hong Kong skyline can be viewed from from the 270-degree wrap-around terrace at the hotel bar Red Sugar. Guests can enjoy barrel aged cocktails and local craft beers while listening to evening live music performances.
