The world's tallest hotel opens its doors in Hong Kong

It offers a bird's eye view of one of the most spectacular skylines in the world.

And should the visitor get bored of staring at Hong Kong's glittering towers from the 1,600ft eyrie of their hotel room window, there are always other distractions.

These come in the form of six restaurants, a sky-high spa with floor-to-ceiling windows and an indoor infinity pool overlooking the iconic harbour.

The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong officially became the world's tallest hotel - and the fourth highest building in the world - when it opened its doors to the public today.

Located at the very top of the International Commerce Centre (ICC), it perches on floors 102 to 118 and has 312 rooms all with city and harbour views.

Herve Humler, president of luxury hotel chain said the building was a landmark hotel which was the culmination of many years of hard work

'We have been able to create truly spectacular so we can welcome our guests not just to the tallest hotel in the world, but also to one of the very best hotels in the world,' he said. 'We are taking luxury to new heights in every sense.'

The hotel's facilities include state-of-the-art technology including WiFi, iPod docking stations, Blu-ray DVD players and flat screen TVs.

There are three restaurants on the 102nd floor, including Tin Lung Heen, which is a Chinese restaurant serving refined Cantonese cuisine; Tosca, an Italian restaurant which offers Southern Italian cuisine and the very stylish The Lounge & Bar with fire pits and open kitchens.

In addition, there is a chocolate-themed lounge named The Chocolate Library on 103rd floor and a stylish patisserie located on 9th floor.

Managers say the jewel in the crown is Ozone, located on the hotel's 118th floor.

It offers contemporary Asian tapas and signature cocktails to a backdrop of incredible views as well as the chance to drink on the world's highest al fresco terrace.

The hotel has an ESPA on site which is located on the 116th floor.
