Who doesn’t love photogenic bathrooms? Whether it’s a shot of you posing in a bubble bath against a stunning backdrop of the city’s skyline or doing your beauty routine in a plush bathrobe next to a marble sink, a post of your ultra-luxurious hotel bathroom will make your staycation even more enjoyable.
With stylish furnishings and designer amenities as your props, here are the most Instagrammable spots to take the perfect bathroom selfie.
The Peninsula Hong Kong
The marble bathrooms at The Peninsula Hong Kong exudes colonial-style luxury, inviting guests to enjoy an indulgent experience complete with its signature Oscar de la Renta amenities.
The Marco Polo suite, in particular, is the epitome of timeless elegance, featuring marble inlays, high ceilings and a deep soaking as the centrepiece—all decked out in a monochromatic art deco style.
Rosewood Hong Kong
While the suites at Rosewood Hong Kong oozes opulence, their bathroom merits a stay on its own. Marble is the name of the game here, while the freestanding soaking tub is the focal point of the bathroom.
Everything comes in dual—twin showers, Maison Caulières amenities, double sinks—to allow plenty of space for your dreamy photoshoot.
The Upper House
Picture this: you’re soaking in a bubble bath, holding a glass of bubbly in your hand and facing breathtaking views of Victoria Harbour. That, right there, is what we call Insta-worthy.
One of the best spots to make it a reality is The Upper House, where all of its studios and suites include a neutral-toned bathroom lined with Italian natural limestone floors and beige Turkish limestone walls, complete with Bamford amenities and a massive freestanding bathtub for the ultimate indulgence.
The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong
Stepping into The Ritz-Carlton’s presidential suite on the 117th floor, one can’t help but realise this is also where the highest hotel bathroom in Hong Kong resides.
A lavish, marble-clad bathroom featuring rain showerheads, double vanity sinks and make-up mirrors, this private sanctuary also comes with an oversized soaking tub. If you ask us, the bathroom mirror is the prime spot to capture candid moments of your staycation.
St. Regis Hong Kong
Designed by André Fu’s AFSO studio, the minimalist marble soaking tub inside The St. Regis Hong Kong’s presidential suite is complete with bronze faucets by Cooper & Graham. Overlooking mesmerising views of Hong Kong’s glittery skyline, this bathroom is a dream come true for interior aficionados.
As you recline for a soak and gaze out onto the skyline from the tub, you are naturally ready for a photo with an Insta-worthy angle.
Over at the Mandarin Oriental, you get not only sweeping views overlooking Victoria Harbour but also an opulent marble bathroom. Overly spacious, the bathroom also has two basins, a walk-in shower and a separate bathtub that’s perfect for couples and families.
If you happen to dine at the Mandarin Grill, we recommend a visit to their Victorian-style bathroom. Complete with cushioned chairs and a hygiene room with baby care facilities, the bathroom feels like you’ve been transported to another era.
Besides being a pet-friendly hotel, The Murray also boasts a photogenic en-suite bathroom. Minimalistic in style, it’s covered in white, black or gold—a truly chic and classy look.
The oversized marbled bathroom includes a walk-in shower and bathtub, where your furry friends can also jump in and enjoy.
