The Murray

Last updated: 27 December, 2023

Couples come to have their pre-wedding photos taken under soaring arches of this former office block turned glamorous luxury hotel.

Built in the mid-century, it’s surrounded by some of Hong Kong’s most iconic sights: I.M. Pei’s Bank of China on one side, the 19th century St John’s Cathedral on the other – there are no bad views from any of the bedrooms.

Inside is just as appealing, with lots of sunlight-infused spaces, seas of black marble, eye-catching Chinese artworks and sprawling outdoor terraces, a rarity in Hong Kong.

The facilities, too, are tip-top – indoor swimming pool, 24-hour gym, a small but thoughtful spa – while its rooftop bar, Popinjays, is one of the city’s smartest alfresco drinking spots.

Surrounding area

The Murray is located in Central, uphill and off the main drag, where there’s a lot less footfall. It’s backed by the greenery of Hong Kong Park, which adds to the sense of it being an oasis in the city.

Other than a couple of cafes in the adjacent office buildings, there aren’t any shops in the immediate area. Instead guests have to walk for about ten minutes, along a series of elevated walkways that lead to the centre of town.
