Despite a rather tumultuous year, 2019 has seen the opening of many new hotels in Hong Kong, from plush luxury hotels to family-friendly offerings. If you’re looking to visit Hong Kong in 2020, check out our list of new hotels in Hong Kong below.

1. St. Regis Hong Kong

Overlooking the Victoria Harbour from Wan Chai, St. Regis Hong Kong is no ordinary hotel. The luxurious five-star hotel boasts Hong Kong-inspired interiors by revered designer Andre Fu, who also helmed the designs of The Upper House and Kerry Hotel. Within the hotel, you will find lighting fixtures reminiscent of old Hong Kong’s gas lamps and wall panels resembling Chinese shop shutters, in a nod to the brand’s East-meets-West design concept.

In line with St. Regis tradition, the hotel offers 24/7 butler service, with butlers meeting you kerbside instead of knocking on your door after you check in.

This new hotel in Hong Kong is only a 13-minute walk from the Wan Chai Ferry Pier, perfect for Star Ferry rides across the harbor to Tsim Sha Tsui. It is also only a 16-minute walk from the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, making it one of the most conveniently-located hotels if you’re attending an event or exhibition at the HKCEC.

On the sixth floor is a sun deck and a 25-meter outdoor infinity pool that promises glittering views of the harbor. Both shopaholics and art lovers would be delighted to know that right next to the hotel is K11 MUSEA, Hong Kong’s newest designer mall featuring stunning architecture, an impressive array of shops, and over 40 world-class contemporary art pieces.

From its name down to the design of its lobby, Page148 is the poster child of a serene sanctuary in the middle of the bustling city. This boutique hotel is incredibly Instagrammable, featuring minimalist design and plenty of natural light in its rooms from massive windows.

Besides a check-in counter, its lobby houses an artisanal coffee bar and a well-stocked reading room for guests to have a quiet moment by themselves. What’s most impressive about Page148 though, are its small but thoughtful touches, such as providing two types of pillows for different preferences, a Marshall bluetooth speaker in each room, and high-quality, in-room drip coffee bags from local roastery Ideaology.
