Deluxe Harbour View Room | Kowloon Shangri-La, Hong Kong

Deluxe Harbour View Room at Kowloon Shangri-La, Hong Kong

The Deluxe Harbour View Room is one of the three Deluxe Room categories of Kowloon Shangri-La Hong Kong. The Deluxe Harbour View Room is the highest among the three categories. Highlight of Deluxe Harbour View Room is the sweeping view of the majestic Victoria Harbour and the Hong Kong Island skyline.

We were originally booked in a Deluxe Room which has a view of the Kowloon City skyline, but I got a tip from a friend that the best room to stay at Kowloon Shangri-La Hong Kong is in one of its Deluxe Harbour View Rooms. Having heard so, I immediately contacted the hotel's reservation and requested to upgrade our room.

Fortunately, there was still an available Deluxe Harbour View Room during our dates of stay. I did not regret paying the room rate difference as the view of the Victoria Harbour from our floor-to-ceiling bay window was so worth it. The view is equally stunning at night when all the buildings are lit up with neon lights.

And because it's a Shangri-La, special attention is given to the arrival experience. A unique feature of Kowloon Shangri-La Hong Kong is the pot of jasmine tea served in every room as part of the hotel's standard welcome amenity. The teapot and a pair of tea cups were placed in teapot basket which kept the tea warm for hours.

With a total floor area of 45 square meters, the Deluxe Harbor View Rooms are among the most spacious guestrooms of the same category in Hong Kong. The room is furnished either with a king size bed or twin beds. Consistent with my experience staying in other Shangri-La properties, the bed in our room was very comfortable. I particularly loved the soft pillows

For maximum comfort and convenience, control buttons for the lights and the curtains are located next to the bed. There's also a seating area next to the window, as well as a full-size executive writing desk which business travelers can fully maximize. What I appreciate a lot are the two multi-plug power adapters provided which are very useful for foreign travelers like myself.

Staycationers, on the other hand, will love LED TV loaded with international and local cable channels. Complimentary Wi-Fi internet is also available inside the room to make sure that you stay connected with the outside world while isolating yourself in a relaxing staycation at the hotel. Toursists on the other hand can make use of the internet when researching for their next destination, while business travelers can finish off some work in the comfort of their room. And just like in any Shangri-La properties worldwide, no username and password are required to log in to the network.

Another interesting feature of the room is the curved wall that houses the minibar and the closet. There's also a coffee and tea making facility. If you prefer to have an in-room Nespresso machine, you can book the Horizon Club Harbour View Room which comes with other exclusive benefits and personalized service.
