2017 marks the 20th anniversary of Hong Kong’s SAR so expect an even more fireworks than usual (ahem). The celebrations start at 8pm on July 1st so make sure you have your hotel room and restaurant booked. These are our three top spots – all on the Kowloon side for optimum viewing:
Newcomer the Kerry Hotel has been causing a stir with it’s modernist, Andre Fu, design and stunning views of Victoria Harbour. Book a ringside seat on the Red Sugar terrace where drinks and snacks will be served.
The hotel is also offering an overnight package for July 1st with Sea View rooms start at a rate of HK$2,340 + 10% Book directly with the hotel.
View of the fireworks in the harbour from the Intercontinental hotel
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 Rech by Alain Ducasse and Nobu if you can bag a window table. All the restaurants have special menus planned for July 1st including a five course tasting menu with optional wine pairing at Rech and an eight course omakase menu at Nobu.
The Ritz Carlton
Many of the rooms at the Ritz Carlton 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 Hong Kong SAR 20th anniversary chef Pino Navarra has created a four course and a six course set dinner to enjoy with firework display as a backdrop.
