Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong

Dec 8, 2011

Call it King Kong. The tallest building in Hong Kong and the fourth tallest in the world—designed by Kohn Pederson Fox Associates—is also the site of the highest hotel: the Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong. Occupying the top 17 floors of the International Commerce Centre, whose roof is 484 meters above the ground, the Ritz-Carlton gives your heart multiple opportunities to skip a beat—even if you’re not acrophobic. Start with the elevator ride from the reception area on the ninth floor to the main lobby on 103: at 32 kilometers per hour, it’s about five times faster than the ascent you’re used to. The indoor infinity pool on 118 lets you swim right up to the edge of the void, and the top-floor terrace is used for alfresco yoga and tai chi. Yes, there’s still oxygen almost half a kilometer up.
