Innovative Family-Friendly Luxury at Island Shangri-La, Hong Kong

With playful adventure, whimsy, and signature flair, the entire 45th floor of the Island Shangri-La, Hong Kong has been designed for families, heralding a new standard of luxury for guests looking to spend quality time with their children, inspire young imaginations, and create lasting memories.

The adventure begins in the 45th floor lift lobby now transformed into a Hong Kong train station with a moving model train. Each corridor has either a garden or marine theme, and leads to doors stencilled with local forest and marine animals designed to help younger guests find their Peak- or harbour-view getaway. 

The 21 luxurious themed rooms and suites, designed to make time away with little ones extra special with a smooth, stress-free stay that does not compromise on style or comfort, are complemented by exclusive family services. Inside the spacious, design-led rooms and suites, there is plenty to explore with a choice of ten different, thoughtfully conceived themes, from a timber treehouse and an airship to a magical carriage, all designed to engage young minds. 

Three-bedroom Family Suites
Large enough for parties and special celebrations, these suites offer the ultimate in creativity and fun for both parents and children of all ages. Each comprises a spacious, elegant room with a luxurious king-size bed for parents, a children’s room with an immersive thrills and adventure theme with a slide, and a separate living room. There is also an independent kitchen equipped with cooking facilities, a hydro tap, and child-friendly utensils. 

Travel back in time to old Hong Kong in the Airship Voyage suite. Children control the propeller, turbine, and other mechanics of their own airship while a weather projection transports young travellers to different climates. 

Enter a mystical world in the Fairy Garden suite where the pink pumpkin carriage bunk bed is in an enchanted mural landscape of colourful, larger-than-life wild plants, butterflies, and flowers, unicorns and toadstools. 

One-bedroom Guestrooms
Available in a Fisherman’s Cove or Garden Lodge setting that celebrates Hong Kong’s natural landscape, these guestrooms combine adult sophistication and child-friendly immersive and interactive themes with custom design beds whose bedside panels drop to create an undisturbed darkened place for children to sleep at night while parents enjoy an evening in their own elegant space.

Inspired by Hong Kong’s maritime heritage, the Fisherman’s Cove guestroom has a single deck bed like the ones on a traditional junk, and a rope walkway leading to an observation hut. 

The Peak-facing Garden Lodge guestroom has a tiered climbing deck leading up to a viewing platform and a traditional log cabin-inspired bed, walls painted like wildflower gardens, leaf-shaped cushions, wildlife patterns, and evoke the great outdoors.

Two-bedroom Family Suites
These suites offer even more opportunities for family fun and relaxation, with a king-size bed, separate bathrooms and an extra Murphy fold-away bed in the children’s room so friends or extended family can join in. 

The Hong Kong Wonders suite has a bunk bed that looks just like the iconic green trams that cross the city. There is a slide on the upper deck, and interactive panels with buttons and pedals allow children to control sounds and lights. 

The Safari Adventure suite recreates the excitement of being on a real safari in a campsite with a canvas-tented bunk bed and a suspension bridge leading to a slide. Hong Kong’s seas come to life in the Underwater Treasure suite. Enter the submarine bunk bed through a hatch to find driving panels with buttons that control alarms and alerts.
