Best Hong Kong Hotels (and their restaurants) for National Day
If you’re in Hong Kong for October 1st make sure you have a room with a view – of Victoria Harbour for the National Day fireworks.
The Interconti is perched right on the harbour’s edge giving it some fantastic views from many of its guests rooms where you feel you’re right on the water and the rooftop Presidential Suite as well as the Lobby Lounge and Harbourside restaurant plus Alain Ducasse’s Spoon and Nobu if you can bag a window table.
All the restaurants have special menus planned for October 1st including a six course tasting menu at Alain Ducasse and an eight course omakase menu at Nobu.
Book a guest room or suite overlooking Victoria Harbour. Even the swimming pool and its adjoining terrace have a bird’s eye view – not to mention the sauna in the spa. And don’t miss out on booking a Rolls Royce transfer to celebrate in style.
The Ritz Carlton
Many of the rooms have dizzying views of the harbour (check you are facing the right way) but perhaps the best is from Tosca the hotel’s Italian fine dining restaurant.
For this National Day Chef Pino Navarra has created a special set dinner to enjoy with the firework display as a backdrop:

The Grand Hyatt Hong Kong rooms make full use of its unique harbour location as the way the hotel juts out gives a phenomenal sweeping view of Victoria Harbour, the Kowloon skyline and back to Hong Kong Island.
After a recent refurb the guest rooms have had their bedrooms and bathrooms opened up to create one seamless space so the views of the harbour and the special light that creates is ramped up to the max. And the Grand Suites have a view-soaked seating area.
The newly revamped Grand Club has a sweeping stair case leading up to the best view of Victoria Harbour.
Island Shangri La
Over 200 rooms and several suites have views of the harbour. Book a Horizon Club Harbour view for access to the executive lounge on the 56th floor. The adjacent French fine dining restaurant Petrus also has a fabulous view.
The Four Seasons
There are stunning views from many of the rooms and all of the suites (some of them panoramic) as well as Caprice and Lung King Heen restaurants and the pool area. Plus the Executive Club has a fantastic balcony with views of the harbour from the 45th floor.
