Aserene 80- sec­ond ride up the In­ter­na­tional com­merce cen­tre’s lift whisks you into the re­splen­dent lobby of The Ritz- carl­ton, Hong Kong, where you are treated to an ea­gle’s eye view of the city and its un­du­lat­ing out­ly­ing ter­ri­to­ries and is­lands. Be­side the reg­is­tra­tion coun­ters, to­wards the left, is a minia­turised check-in counter for chil­dren of guests. This counter is part of the en­hanced Ritz Kids pro­gramme that was rolled out just last year, of­fer­ing the young ones an im­mer­sive ad­ven­ture within the ho­tel’s strato­spheric heights.

avail­able at a sup­ple­men­tary fee of HK$800 (Rm457) plus 10 per cent ser­vice charge per night, the pro­gramme pro­vides the child trav­eller with his or her own ‘pass­port’, de­signed to fully re­ward a child’s cu­rios­ity and ap­ti­tude for learn­ing. each child also re­ceives a lion Pierre back­pack and an ac­cess- all- restau­rants bracelet pass for com­pli­men­tary ice cream (in­clud­ing the ho­tel’s two miche­lin­starred out­lets).

a map within the pass­port leads the child on dif­fer­ent ad­ven­tures within the ho­tel, where they earn

The ad­ven­ture cul­mi­nates with a Night Sa­fari turn­down ser­vice.
