Sorrento (zh-t|t=擎天半島) is a residential complex on the reclamation in west of Jordan, Kowloon, Hong Kong. The complex contains five buildings named Sorrento 1 through to Sorrento 6. In common with many developments in Hong Kong, tower 4 is omitted because the Cantonese number "4" is a homophone for the Cantonese word "death". The tallest tower, Sorrento 1, is 256 metres (841 feet) tall with 75 floors, it is the tallest residential building of Hong Kong, and fifth-tallest residential building in the world. All five buildings of the complex were completed in 2003.

Located at Kowloon Station of the MTR, Sorrento comprises five towers with ascending height. Completed in 2003, it was built by the Wharf Estate Development Ltd. and MTR Corporation.

All five towers were designed by Wong & Ouyang (HK) Ltd and follow the same design however reduced in height consecutively with the tallest being Sorrento 1 and the shortest being Sorrento 6. There is a gap between Sorrento 2 and Sorrento 3, where a foot bridge connects the Sorrento residential complex to Kowloon Station and the Elements Mall.

There are only two duplexes in the entire complex: Unit 81C and 81D of Sorrento 1.
