A whole host of exciting holidays lie just a short plane ride away from Hong Kong, but with the ongoing global health crisis, even our closest neighbours seem out of reach—but that doesn’t mean you’ll have to opt out of holidaying entirely! Luckily, there are some fantastic staycation deals in Hong Kong just for us residents—think afternoons by the pool, fine-dining meals, and award-winning spa treatments—all just a short taxi ride from home. Sound like a perfect Saturday? We think so, too.
Into the woods, it’s time to go! Head to Rosewood Hong Kong this summer for a fun-filled getaway for the entire family, which includes active programs for youngsters as well as indulgent activities for the young at heart. From 10 July to 10 August 2020, kids can try their hand (and legs) at yoga, boxing, and learn to play rugby with a professional. Pizza-making and cupcake-baking classes are also available for budding chefs, as are drama and DJ lessons.
Adventurers can take things up a notch with sailing classes with the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club for afternoons of sun, surf, and sand on Lantau Island. Grown-ups get to have their own share of educational fun—cocktail-making and cheese-pairing classes, sessions with experts from Cartier, Delvaux, and Penhaligon’s to learn about jewellery, leather, and fragrance respectively, as well as an in-depth art tour around the hotel or test drives in a Maserati.
For a shorter stay, opt for the Summer Getaway package ($9,700 for two nights), which includes accommodations for a family of two adults and one child for two to six nights, 50 percent off a second or third room, daily breakfast for the whole family at Holt’s Cafe, a daily $780 hotel credit to spend on dining and wellness, a complimentary KLUB 11 Gold Card Membership with a $500 gift card, and tickets to K11 MUSEA’s Nature Discovery Park, as well as access to all the activities and experiences offered in the Summer at Rosewood programme. For the full experience, spend seven or more nights at the Rosewood as part of the Camp Rosewood package ($36,350 for seven nights) and enjoy everything listed above, plus a complimentary 90-minute couple’s massage at the in-house spa Asaya, as well as a special surprise for the parents crafted by their children.
