Symmetrical design and vibrant colour palettes are the elements that make up a Wes Anderson flick. If you’re a fan of his work, you’ll be thrilled to discover that Hong Kong is home to stunning hotels reminiscent of his films with distinctive, eye-catching styles and intentional furniture placement that adds character to the scene. Prepare your cameras, folks, and don’t miss the opportunity to snap photographs while romanticising your life at these hotels that look like they’ve come straight out of the Wes Anderson multiverse.
The Royal Garden
Adorned with indoor balconies, high ceilings, and 445 contemporary hotel rooms, The Royal Garden is every artsy traveller’s dream staycation place. It features a Mediterranean-inspired pool area where guests can unwind and a business centre where digital nomads can work. Although The Royal Garden is not the actual building used in Wes Anderson’s Oscar-winning movie “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” it looks like it could pass off as one of its filming locations.
Location: The Royal Garden, Mody Road, Tsimshatsui, East 69
The Upper House
Just a 10-minute drive from Victoria Harbour is The Upper House, an intimate hotel in the middle of Hong Kong. Pretend you’re in a movie as you overlook the concrete jungle’s bright lights at night while listening to relaxing ambient music. Make sure to try their afternoon tea session where you can enjoy aromatic beverages and colourful pastries that fit the Wes Anderson aesthetic.
Location: The Upper House, Pacific Place, 88 Queensway, Admiralty, Hong Kong
Le Meridien Cyberport Hotel
Situated near Cyberport Business Park is yet another Wes Anderson-inspired staycation spot called Le Meridien Cyberport Hotel. This place is a hip high-rise that houses 170 spacious rooms with intricate, modern design. It also overlooks Telegraph Bay, so if you want to recreate the telescope scene from “Moonrise Kingdom,” the hotel’s rooftop is the perfect place to witness the panoramic view of the ocean.

Eaton Hong Kong
Almost every corner of Eaton Hong Kong is a good backdrop for your Instagram photos, thanks to its state-of-the-art amenities.

Hotel Madera Hong Kong
Located in the district of Kowloon, Hotel Madera Hong Kong is a chic boutique hotel that features calming colours and quirky furnishings that give off major Wes Anderson vibes. This staycation spot isn’t as frequented as the other hotels, which makes it a perfect location for guests looking to have a tranquil and peaceful urban experience.
