Hong Kong's Island Shangri-La unveils floor dedicated to kids

Hong Kong Island Shangri-La

Kids can sleep in a tram on Level 45

The Island Shangri-La Hong Kong has opened an entire floor dedicated to families.

It’s part of a bold initiative at the Admiralty-located property to embrace ‘bleisure’ travel, business mixed with leisure travel, by adding facilities aimed at family groups rather than just single business travellers.

Level 45 at the five-star property is now a veritable playground for children, with 21 luxurious themed rooms and suites, as well as heaps of add-on facilities for both children and parents. 

The lobby on the family floor has been designed as a Hong Kong train station with a moving model train. The corridors are decorated in a garden or marine theme and lead to doors stencilled with local forest or marine animals to designate Peak or Harbour-view rooms. Ten fun room themes run from a timber treehouse to a magical carriage and include family-friendly features such as toddler-safe beds with slides, toys, extra luggage space and larger interconnected suites suitable for extended family groups. In-room babysitting is available.

The two-bedroom suites include the Hong Kong Wonders suite with bunk beds that mimic the city’s famous trams. There’s an upper deck and interactive buttons for busy fingers and even pedals to ‘drive’ the tram. The suites offer separate bathrooms for parents and children and an extra fold-away bed in the children’s room.

Launching later this month are three-bed suites with a king-size bedroom for parents, a children’s themed room, separate sitting room and kitchen facilities with hydro-tap and child-friendly utensils. 

Guests on the 45th floor have exclusive access to The Hangout, a living, dining and playroom space, and The Pantry, which is filled with useful appliances for parents.

The Hangout has a 'grab & go' station with counters serving healthy food options, perfect for rumbling tums that can’t wait until adult dining times, as well as lots of board games, books and craft spaces. There’s a cosy sitting room in which to read or play the games and a bathroom with a nappy changing table.

Meanwhile, The Pantry is centrally located and has a washing machine, dryer, wash basin, microwave and more; in fact everything parents could need when staying in a hotel with young children.

Downstairs, families can enjoy the recently-opened Waterplay area on the eighth floor pool deck. It includes a toddler paddling pool, splash park with water tunnel, water jets, flower sculptures and an interactive ‘whack-a-mole’ wall. Families staying on the 45th floor receive a pool bag with pool toys and swimming nappies. Luxury poolside cabanas are also available for hire.
