Kowloon Shangri-La, Hong Kong

Kowloon Shangri-La, Hong Kong

Kowloon Shangri-La Hong Kong is a 688-room luxury hotel owned and operated by the Shangri-La Hotels & Resorts. It is centrally located in the Kowloon peninsula near the shopping, entertainment and commercial establishments of the Tsim Sha Tsui East district.

Its prime location along the waterfront of Salisbury Road makes it an ideal hotel for tourists, business travelers and staycationers who wish to have an unobstructed view of the majestic Victoria Harbour and of the Hong Kong Island skyline right at the comfort of their room.

Kowloon Shangri-La Hong Kong also enjoys easy accessibility through various modes of transports. Guests arriving at the Hong Kong International Airport can take MTR's Airport Express and alight at Kowloon Station. From there, guests can take MTR's free shuttle service directly to the hotel's doorstep. Guests staying a Kowloon Shangri-La can reach any point of Hong Kong via the East Tsim Sha Tsui and Tsim Sha Tsui stations of the MTR conveniently located next to the hotel.

Lobby of Kowloon Shangri-La, Hong Kong

If you have stayed in a Shangri-La property, you will immediately notice the signature Essence of Shangri-La scent upon entering the lobby. For me, this is one of the things I anticipate when arriving in a Shangri-La hotel. The scent gives you a sense of coming home to a Shangri-La, so even if it was my first time at Kowloon Shangri-La Hong Kong, I instantly felt at home.

Shangri-La Valley Mural at Kowloon Shangri-La, Hong Kong

An interesting detail of the lobby is the two-story high mural entitled Shangri-La Valley. It depicts a mythical kingdom in the Tibetan highlands inhabited by exotic birds amidst verdant gardens and colorful flowers. The mural also incorporates the concept of Gao Lung (九龍), or Nine Dragons, from which Kowloon got its name.

My favorite spot to stay at the lobby has got to be next to the fountain. The tranquil sound of the water flowing through the three-tier marble fountain has a relaxing effect that virtually stops time. I can seat here for hours without noticing the passing of time.
