Hotel Check In: Grand Hyatt Hong Kong

The Grand Hyatt Hong Kong is a venerable property in Wan Chai on Hong Kong Island overlooking Victoria Harbour.  With 542 guest rooms and suites, a soaring Grand Club with floor to ceiling windows, eight restaurants and two bars it is the epitome of what a Grand Hyatt should be. It’s large, service-oriented and a destination unto itself.

On this trip we had a Victoria Harbour Suite with stunning views of Kowloon and the iconic harbour. The decor is the perfect accompaniment to Hong Kong. It is modern and elegant with nods to Chinese design and European luxury. Night and day the views will transfix you.

At 90 square meters the suite is large and very well laid out. The large soaking tub and walk-in shower of the bathroom flow seamlessly into the bedroom which is comfortable, quiet and very focused on relaxation. It’s minimal design helps the room feel large as the closet area takes up all bags and clothes.

The Grand Hyatt Hong Kong emerged from long term renovations more interesting and vital than ever. The Grand Club Lounge not only sports all day food and champagne but a sumptuous breakfast and extensive evening snacks menu. But again the real attraction is the view.

Hong Kong is a busy place and so its nice to have an oasis to return to. The only challenge with our suite was that it was so comfortable and enticing that we didn’t want to leave. The Grand Hyatt Hong Kong does the Hyatt brand proud and helps to set its stellar reputation across Asia. It’s n to cheap but highly recommended.
