Ritz-Carlton will make a quite an impact when it returns to Hong Kong with the opening of what will be one of the world’s tallest hotels in the fourth quarter of 2010.

The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong, will occupy floors 102 to 118 of the International Commerce Centre (ICC) in Kowloon.

“Hong Kong is one of the world’s great cities and we are delighted to be returning with such an iconic and dynamic hotel,” said Simon Cooper, The Ritz-Carlton’s president and COO. “Occupying the top 16 floors of the ICC tower in Hong Kong is a truly unique location for a hotel, offering panoramic views across Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong Island. Modern in design, the hotel will be the heart and soul of Kowloon and will attract visitors from all over the world for its world-class style, design, service and its landmark location.”

With interiors by Singapore’s LTW in a building developed by Hong Kong’s premier developer Sun Hung Kai Properties working with New York architects KPF, the hotel will offer 312 guest rooms all providing spectacular city and harbour views. Starting at an impressive 50sqm for a Deluxe Harbour Room, and reaching an incredible 365sqm for the Ritz-Carlton Suite, all rooms provide state of the art technology including WiFi, iPod docking stations and stylish flat screen TVs.

 In addition, Club room guests will be able to enjoy the panoramic Ritz-Carlton Club Lounge with complimentary food and beverage presentations 24 hours a day, as well as a dedicated Club Concierge, work stations, meeting rooms and WiFi throughout.

One of the unique aspects of the hotel, which reflects a move to more casual elegance of The Ritz-Carlton brand, will be its bars and restaurants, which have been designed by Japan’s Spin Studio.

 With six dining venues starting on the 102nd floor, including state of the art designer Chinese and Italian restaurants, and lobby lounge, the alfresco rooftop bar will be a truly stunning venue at 490 meters above sea level. Asian-style tapas and contemporary cocktails will be served on the roof terrace, where fire pits and casual seating will create an atmosphere of stylish luxury.

The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong will boast one of the largest ballrooms in the city at 930sqm. Elaborately decorated with a sea of crystal chandeliers, the décor is suited to weddings, meetings and gala events. This will be complimented by an additional four meeting rooms giving a grand total of 1,300sqm of meeting space.

For those wishing to relax and indulge, the ESPA located on the 116th floor will consist of 860sqm of treatment rooms and relaxation areas. Featuring nine deluxe treatment rooms and three couples suites, every treatment room offers floor-to-ceiling windows with panoramic views.

 The hotel also features a fully equipped fitness centre and indoor pool on the 118th floor.

At the base of the ICC tower, the Elements shopping mall offers some of the finest luxury shopping in Hong Kong with brand names and international fashion brands fighting for space in this world-class location.

The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong is scheduled to open in December 2010.
