Although a whole host of exciting holidays lie just a short plane ride away from Hong Kong, if you’re short on annual leave, even the briefest of breaks might seem out of reach — but that doesn’t mean you’ll have to opt out entirely! Lucky for us, Hong Kong’s hotels have packaged up some great staycation deals just for us residents — think afternoons by the pool, fine-dining, and award-winning spa treatments — all just a short taxi ride from home. Sound like a perfect Saturday? We think so, too.
Landmark Mandarin Oriental
Craving a city-break steeped in luxury and elegance? The Landmark Mandarin offers just that. Located in the heart of the Central district, this five-star facility offers staycation packages to Hong Kongers hankering for some serious downtime. A complimentary bottle of champagne awaits, as does $1,000 of credit to be used at any of the hotel’s restaurants or award-winning spa. The best part? A night on the ‘Landmark Staycation Package’, in reality, is more like a night and a day as the hotel offers a late checkout, meaning you can make the most of your home away from home until 4pm.
A new addition to Hong Kong’s luxury hotel circuit, Kerry Hotel has already developed a legion of loyal followers. And with stunning views of the city’s skyline, the promise of evening cocktails and canapes, and a breakfast of champions served at the hotel’s club lounge, it’s clear to see why. If you find yourself seriously taken by the ‘Suite Retreat Package’, you can take advantage of the complimentary laundry service available throughout your stay too.
This harbour front hotel is well-known for its decadent brunch, but if you’re looking for more than just a splash-out meal, consider an extended visit. The ‘Escape 24 Package’ offers guests a luxurious day and night over — you guessed it, 24 hours. With access to the club floor and $1,000 spending credit to use at the hotel’s restaurants or spa, you’ll be spoilt for choice over how to spend your night away.
The Upper House
Available on weekends and public holidays, The Upper House offers guests a top-of-the-line staycation experience. The ‘A Weekend That You Deserve’ package includes $800 worth of food and drink, unlimited in-room movies, and complimentary yoga classes on weekends. Their standard rooms are some of the largest in Hong Kong, and if you’re lucky enough, a room upgrade (and late checkout) can be provided, subject to availability.
Located in Hong Kong’s hip new arts district, Ovolo fits right in with its surroundings, where quirky cafes and art galleries line the streets of the up-and-coming Wong Chuk Hang area. The converted industrial building promises guests who book directly with them a complimentary breakfast, with rates inclusive of happy hour, WiFi, and a whole host of other amenities and services. Although there’s no pool on site, Ocean Park is just a short walk away, and the hotel’s snooker area and rooftop bar are on hand to keep you entertained after a day on the log flumes.

The best things in life are FREE, includes breakfast, happy hour, WiFi, in-room minibar, all day snacks, self-service laundry, and 24-hour Gym, only when you book directly
Looking to see Hong Kong like never before? If there’s a seriously special occasion coming up and you need to impress, then look no further than the iconic Peninsula Hotel.

The package includes breakfast for two, a barbecue dinner at the Tai O Lookout restaurant, accommodation in a ground floor suite, and the use of indoor and outdoor tent facilities. If your little ones are the type that love to get out and about, then you can set off for a 20-minute boat tour of Tai O Village or make use of the hotel’s telescope!
