Summertime means family time! As the city shakes off the remaining vestiges of the Covid pandemic, it’s understandable to still be wary about too much social contact, but surely you’d still want to do something interesting with your loved ones. Thankfully, there are plenty of hotels offering staycation packages for the whole family, keeping the adults relaxed and pampered, and the little ones entertained. If you are going to stay indoors anyway, then it might as well be in a luxe hotel. Here are some of the best family staycation deals in Hong Kong to book right now.
From 16 June to 11 July 2021, Asaya Hong Kong is launching its Well-cation series for people interested in rejuvenating physical and mental well-being, developing balance, and reconnecting with their loved ones. Opt from one of three different packages on offer, including the Discover Asaya day-cation (starting from $2,650 per person), which includes a guided session with a resident wellness specialist, an aromatherapy session or bespoke treatment, as well as a three-course lunch at Asaya Kitchen.
All guests will have access to their 25-metre outdoor infinity pool, fitness centre, and well-being classes. If visitors prefer to stay for a longer period of time, they can purchase the one-night Well-cation package or ultimate Well-cation package instead, which includes similar services to the first package, but throws in a stay at the Asaya Lodge plus a healthy breakfast. Keep in mind that the price rates are different on weekdays ($5,970 per person) and weekends ($9,890 per person). One can also pick the less costly option (starting from $4,970) and spend the night at the stunning Kowloon Peak View room at Rosewood.
Asaya’s ultimate Well-cation package (starting from $88,000) is designed for up to 10 guests, allowing families to spend quality time together while enjoying the entire space on the seventh floor of Asaya for themselves. Enjoy the full use of two Asaya Lodges and a Social House with its private lounge, garden, two double-treatment rooms and hydrotherapy facilities. Guests can also attend the services and activities provided in the aforementioned packages, such as meditation, TRX, and singing bowl classes! Visitors must check in on Monday to Thursday before beginning their journey on making positive and long-lasting changes in their lifestyle.
