Health Club -- which includes the pool, fitness center, and spa -- is shared by hotel guests and club members
Arguably the most luxurious hotel in Hong Kong, the 565-room Shangri-La features opulent details -- including the largest Chinese silk painting in the world, and TVs in every bathroom. Elegant rooms are outfitted with silk throws, gilded wooden furniture, crystal chandeliers, and high-tech features such as large flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi. Amenities include an outdoor pool, a well-equipped fitness center, and a spa. They are not exclusive to guests, though, as Health Club members also have access to them. The Shangri-La has steep rates, but most guests claim the hefty price tag is worth it, particularly when staying in rooms with harbor views.
The Shangri-La is located on the outskirts of Central, just a short walk from Hong Kong Park. It is a popular choice among business travelers, as it is also within easy reach of numerous corporate buildings.
The business and financial hub of the city, Central overlooks the water from the north shore of Hong Kong Island. Its skyline is defined by tall glass-and-steel buildings and has a modern look, though some colonial buildings still remain.
Central's mix of modern and historic is appealing to tourists, and there are plenty of sights to take in. This area is home to upscale shopping centers and top-notch restaurants, as well as beautiful parks with interesting attractions. The Chater Garden features a zoo and a playground that are popular with families. And Hong Kong Park is the site of the Museum of Tea, which is housed in a historic colonial building.
