Victoria Harbour is more than just a world-famous landmark. It represents Hong Kong’s mercantile history and the modern energy that rushes through the city, plus it’s one of the most beautiful skylines in the world. Cloud-piercing skyscrapers hug both sides of the waterway, while ferries chug back and forth.
If you’ve been to Hong Kong before, you may have caught glimpses of the historic channel from a restaurant, rooftop bar or hotel room. But there’s something extra luxurious about taking in the sparkling harbor while soaking in a gorgeous bathtub. When the time comes to visit Hong Kong, we’ve found four hotel rooms worth booking solely for the epic views from the bathrooms:
A study in world-class service and refinement, the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Mandarin Oriental has become synonymous with classic luxury, gourmet dining and stunning Victoria Harbour views. Soak up the sights in a Harbour View Suite, which boasts a 224-square-foot bathroom with a standalone tub surrounded by handsome black marble and floor-to-ceiling windows.
Since the room occupies a coveted corner, you can enjoy both sunrise and sunset, not to mention clear views of the Kowloon skyline, the nightly Symphony of Lights show and the Central Harbourfront. Make the most of your time in this unique en suite with a rose-petal bubble bath that hydrates the skin and soothes the mind.
This ultra-luxury address took the city by storm when it opened in 2019 inside a 65-story tower just steps from the Kowloon waterfront. The Five-Star hotel celebrates the harbor in all its glory by showcasing the waterway whenever possible: 70% of rooms promise harbor views, as does the infinity pool, Asaya wellness center, Manor Club, CHAAT and The Legacy House, among other areas of the property.
When it comes to panoramic bathrooms, book a Grand Harbour View Room, Deluxe Harbour Suite, Grand Harbour Corner Suite or Harbour House for the best vistas. Set on the 57th floor, the Harbour House spoils you with its 320-square-foot marble bathroom, walk-in rain showers and stunning circular soaking tub. Made from a single marble slab, the luxurious tub faces East for magnificent sunrises over the harbor, not to mention great views of the Kai Tak Cruise Terminal (the Kai Tak Airport of old). Meanwhile, two outdoor lap pools and manicured gardens ensure the harbor is never out of sight.
Designed by sought-after Hong Kong interior architect Andre Fu, The Upper House feels like a minimalist, Zen oasis — a retreat from the city’s frenetic pace. Each of the 117 rooms showcases pared-back, neutral interiors, ensuring the wrap-around views steal the show, especially in the palatial bathrooms.
The Studio 70, in particular, delivers jaw-dropping vistas. With its free-standing limestone tub, separate walk-in rain shower and organic Bamford bath products, the spa-like bathroom stretches across approximately 377 square feet (half the size of the room itself).
Whether you’re enjoying the views at sunrise, sunset or anytime in between, there’s something deeply relaxing about watching boats big and small glide smoothly across the harbor. Celebrating something special? Dial up the romance with candles, bath bombs and fabric petals.
As one of the first luxury hotels to open in Hong Kong, The Peninsula needs no introduction. Grace and grandeur ooze out of every corner of this heritage address, which dates to 1928, and when it comes to bathrooms with a view, this Tsim Sha Tsui landmark does not disappoint.
In the opulent 4,111-square-foot Peninsula Suite, you’ll discover a 207-square-foot bathroom where a deep Jacuzzi tub made of gleaming onyx awaits with front-row seats to Victoria Harbour.
While you’re soaking away in your bubble bath, look for skyline icons like the IFC tower, The Peak and Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre across the water on Hong Kong Island. This is also a prime spot to watch the historic Star Ferry chug to and fro, admire the Ferris wheel or take in the famous Symphony of Lights.
The bathroom comes kitted out with every imaginable luxury, including a state-of-the-art TV and mood lighting, plus a host of add-ons like the “Me-Time Ritual.” A wellness journey for the mind and body, this relaxing experience features VOYA’s organic bath salts, True Tranquil body wash and Moonlight Moments bath and shower oil — the perfect recipe for a restful, restorative break.
