Romantic accommodation - honeymoon

Going to Hong Kong for 2-3 nights as part of a honeymoon.

This will be the first part of the trip and of course want to make it special. Can anyone recommend a hotel or make suggestions for a really romantic couple of nights in HK.

Many thanks

The hotels of choice for a few nights and special occasions are The Peninsula and the Intercontinental Hong Kong (ex-Regent). These two hotels are luxurious and landmarks in HK. Both hotels are on Kowloon side and walking distance to the Star Ferry if you care to go over to HK Island. Of course, it comes with a price tag.

The others to consider are the Sheraton (also Kowloon side) or on Hong Kong side, any of the PP (Pacific Place) hotels (Conrad, JW Marriott and Island Shangri la). These hotels have special packages for honeymooners and the PP hotels have a view (if you choose to).

If you want to splurge for a memorable honeymoon in a hotel on HK Island, go with Four Seasons or Mandarin Oriental Landmark (these two are brand new hotels, real swanky and posh). The Grand Hyatt Hong Kong is another choice but location is not as good as the PP hotels.

The SoHo area ('South of Hollywood Road') on Hong Kong Island and Knutsford Terrace in Tsim Sha Tsui are two of Hong Kong's most fashionable dining hotspots and perfect for a romantic meal. Stanley and Repulse Bay have some restaurants you should consider.

Suggested activites for a couple out for romances are :

- Stroll around the Peak at sunset for stunning city views of Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and islands sparkling in the South China Sea.

- Charter a junk or yacht for the day, complete with crew. You can dine on board or tell the captain to set a course for a seafood feast at picturesque Sai Kung, Lei Yue Mun or tranquil Lamma Island. Alternatively, hire a sampan for a private tour of Sai Kung's stunning bay and small islands.

- Hire a helicopter for a thrilling ride over the territory, take a tram tour of Hong Kong Island, or an open-top bus along neon-lit Nathan Road at night. A chauffeured limousine is ideal for soaking up Hong Kong's most spectacular night views.

- Admire the richly embroidered and sequined red wedding outfits and ornaments in traditional Chinese wedding shops on Shanghai Street, Yau Ma Tei.

- Relax on the beach in scenic Repulse Bay, where the movie Love Is A Many Splendored Thing was filmed. Then enjoy a romantic dinner in the charming colonial-style Repulse Bay Arcade overlooking the beach.

- Enjoy drinks at the Regent, Mandarin Oriental, Grand Hyatt or at the ultra-stylish Felix at the top of the Peninsula hotel for a fabulous view of Hong Kong Island and Victoria Harbour

Congratulations and have a wonderful honeymoon !

Suggested Itinerary for your trip:

Day One

Arrival. Check into honeymoon suite. Take a walking tour of the city, then enjoy a sunset cruise with dinner on board. Later, visit the Temple Street Night Market for bargains. Don't miss the street-side snacks.

Then choose any of these for the rest of your stay :

- Take a Hong Kong Island tour with dim sum lunch. Go shopping in Stanley Market. In the evening, choose either the SoHo area of Central district or Knutsford Terrace in Tsim Sha Tsui for dinner. Both are packed with door-to-door restaurants offering a host of international cuisine - from Chinese and Italian to Mexican and Japanese. Here you can savour dishes from the Himalayas to the Louisiana bayou, from Malaysia to the Mediterranean.

- Visit the fortune-tellers at Wong Tai Sin Temple. Then go shopping in Tsim Sha Tsui, with afternoon tea at one of the hotels. Stroll along the Tsim Sha Tsui promenade at sunset. Dine in neon-lit Causeway Bay, where shops stay open late. Finish the day with drinks in the atmospheric Captain's Bar of the Mandarin Oriental hotel. Or marvel at the magnificent city and harbour views from the sumptuous lobby of Grand Hyatt.

- Visit the world's largest reef aquariums, see the performing dolphins and giant pandas, hit the rollercoaster and other rides at Ocean Park. Relax in your hotel's health or beauty spa, and get ready for an elegant gourmet Chinese or Western dinner on the Peak or in a five-star hotel. Afterwards, grab a late-night coffee or cocktail in the Lan Kwai Fong nightlife district.

- Visit the Giant Buddha on Lantau Island, or explore tiny Cheung Chau Island by foot. For lunch, choose your own seafood from tanks and eat alfresco at a waterfront cafe. Return to Hong Kong Island via ferry. Depart in the evening

Very many thanks for the very detailed response and suggested itinery. The itenery is also a huge help. From what I have read, Shagri La sounds a very good hotel and within my budget. Having never been to Hong before I'm now slightly undecided to stay 3 or 4 nights. We want to see and do everything we can in the time but save the relaxing bit to bali. Any advice would be appreciated

When i am in Hong Kong i either stay at the Island shangrila or the Kowloon shangrila

You will not be dissapointed if you stay at the Island Shangrila. The service is ezcellent and not in the face at all.

Both views from this hotel is excellent. You either get the peak view or the harbour view

and just below is the shoppin mall

The italian restaurant grappa's is nice

If you ask for a corner suite at the Salisbury YMCA Hotel you will have the largest room and the best view for half the cost of the other hotels nearby, it is right next door to the Penninsula.

You can book online,don't be put off by YMCA it is the best one in the world.

Save yr money and have a romantic dinner at the Ruth Cris restaurant which you can walk to along the waterfront.
