Hong Kong may not be known as the city of love in the same way as Paris, but we’ve still got plenty of things to help amorous couples set the mood – just look at the Hong Kong skyline, the countless romantic places you can bring a date to, or the many sexy movies you can watch.  

But if you're looking for a city escape to rekindle your love, especially if the current situation in the city has been dampening your spark, here's a roundup of the best hotels in the city to book your next romantic staycation. Whether you’re a new couple planning your first-weekend staycation or long-term partners celebrating your anniversary or Valentine's Day, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

Hong Kong’s most romantic hotels

  • Luxury hotels
  • Central

Ask anyone in the city for one of the best luxury hotels to stay in and Four Seasons always come to mind. The hotel's rooms showcase the best views of Victoria Harbour and The Peak, and its location is conveniently located smack in the middle of Central and linked to the IFC shopping mall. If you have a discerning palate and enjoy fine dining cuisine, Four Seasons is a destination worth considering because of its Michelin-starred restaurants – French restaurant Caprice and Chinese restaurant Lung King Heen. The most impressive highlight of the hotel is the several swimming pools, which include a picturesque infinity pool that appears to spill into Victoria Harbour. Between all the complimentary in-room activities, luxurious amenities, and 'add-on' experiences – wine or spirit tasting, bath ritual, and various wellness classes – there are so many things for you and your significant other to enjoy.

  • Tsim Sha Tsui East

Located in the centre of Tsim Sha Tsui, the eco-friendly Hotel Icon is a welcome respite from the sensory overload of the city's busy streets. Step inside, and you'll be greeted by the hotel's stylish contemporary surrounding and a gorgeous vertical garden that adorns the lobby. We recommend booking one of the many rooms with views of Victoria Harbour and don't forget to check out the hotel's Michelin-recommended Above & Beyond restaurant, which serves up some of the most refined Cantonese food in Hong Kong.

Pacific Place might literally be surrounded by five-star hotels, but there's no doubt that The Upper House is the coolest kid on the block. With its ultra-modern, Asian-influenced design, spacious accommodation (claimed to be the largest in Hong Kong), stunning views, and a fantastic restaurant, this is an undeniably chic boutique hotel experience. While The Upper House doesn't have a standalone spa, you can request in-room spa treatments – which are all the more romantic.

  • West Kowloon

Occupying the top 16 floors of the International Commerce Centre – the tallest building in Hong Kong – the Ritz-Carlton offers a high level of luxury with all its decadent touches. From the spectacular view of the Hong Kong skyline from the luxurious rooms, plush beds with 400 to 600-thread count linens, modern in-room amenities, fine Italian dining at Michelin-starred Tosca, a stylish indoor pool, gym, and a top-notch spa, the hotel provides an ultimate experience for your luxe romantic stay.

  • Wan Chai

Conveniently located in the shopping paradise of Causeway Bay, Mira Moon is the funky younger sister to TST’s Mira Moon hotel. Paying homage to the moon goddess Chang’e and her sole companion, the jade rabbit, the décor of this design-driven hotel is decidedly maximalist, but in a Chinoiserie-meets-Alice-in-Wonderland way, that’s charmingly kitschy rather than tacky. The rooms are comfortable and stylish, with intricately carved dark wood furniture, peony-themed soft furnishings, and a bathtub that comes with marble holders for Champagne glasses (if that’s not sexy, then we don’t know what is).

Situated in the heart of Central, this grande dame is the queen of Hong Kong Island, and it shows. Traditional Chinese design sensibilities meet Western amenities in the spacious rooms, overlooking either Victoria Harbour or the Central cityscape. Make the most of the stunning views by having breakfast in bed or enjoying in-room gourmet meals from Michelin-starred Cantonese restaurant Man Wah, Mandarin Grill + Bar, or Japanese izakaya The Aubrey

  • Tsim Sha Tsui
  • price 4 of 4

The palatial Peninsula is the oldest and swankiest hotel in Hong Kong and is the rare combination of lovingly preserved heritage and state-of-the-art technology. It's played host to some of the biggest celebrities in modern history, is home to Hong Kong's most famous afternoon tea, and has the most deluxe facilities around (including a helicopter pad and fleet of Rolls-Royces). Between the elegant peach blossom-patterned accommodation, seven world-class restaurants, and 12,000sq ft spa, you and your loved one can enjoy one of the most lavish, romantic stay this city has to offer.

  • Wan Chai

The Fleming's mid-century nautical-themed décor pays homage to the city’s beloved ferry with dark wood panelling, circular windows and mirrors, striped upholstery, and bottle-green tiling. If you and your loved one absolutely must take a break from rocking the boat (so to speak), we recommend dining at the hotel’s Black Sheep-run trattoria, Osteria Marzia, which specialises in coastal Italian fare (Lady and the Tramp-style spaghetti sharing optional).

  • Admiralty

Housed in a 1960s government building designed by Ron Phillips and newly renovated by Norman Foster, the Murray is a treat for architecture buffs who’ll no doubt ooh and aah over the heat-reducing recessed windows, beautiful arches and energy-efficient design. The rooms are kitted out in earth-toned furnishings in natural textiles and stone, as well as modern technological flourishes – we particularly like the glass bathroom door, which becomes frosted at the touch of a button. Additionally, the Murray may be the most conveniently located hotel for couples, being only a stone’s throw from the Peak Tram and the Cotton Tree Drive Marriage Registry.
