10 new city hotels to visit in 2019

The Murray Hong Kong

Once a building for government offices in Hong Kong in the 1960s, The Murray has been transformed into the city’s biggest hotel opening this year. Foster+Partners who were behind Singapore’s Capella resort in Sentosa have preserved the original distinctive recessed windows and impressive archways designed by architect Ron Phillips. Seventy five per cent of the velvet rooms are larger than 50sqm, with panoramas of Hong Kong Park and Victoria Harbour. But the pièce de résistance is the egg-shaped free-standing bath.

The Murray, Hong Kong is at 22 Cotton Tree Drive Central, Hong Kong, T: +852-3141-8888. Visit www.niccolohotels.com for more information.
