Summer is fast approaching, and while international travel is still largely on hold, there are many ways you can holiday at home. Domestic tourism—from day trips to numerous islands to seacations—has been surging to fill that gap in demand for travel, and hotels have risen to the occasion by offering out-of-this-world deals and experiences. If you are vaccinated, you can enjoy even more deals and incentives. Here are the best staycation deals in town to book for the long weekend—or any day of the week, really.

Redefine. package (starting from $2,388) includes an overnight stay in a courtyard view room with the option of a complimentary upgrade to a deluxe room, paired with a 60-minute mobility class led by Lululemon ambassador Chris Tang, a singing bowls session with Lululemon ambassador Malbert Lee, a pink Lululemon yoga mat, a detox dinner set for two, and breakfast buffet for two at The Food Gallery. Available for booking until 9 September 2021, for stays from 19 June to 11 September 2021.

Scroll through Instagram and you will quickly see that the #HongKong hashtag is flooded with certain photographic staples—the view from the Peak, a snap of the Hong Kong ferries, Hong Kong’s glittering skyline at night, and always an on-shore image of the classic Hong Kong junk boat with its vivid red sails, fluttering across the harbour. Why not change things up by posting a photo of yourself on the antique junk?
With Marco Polo’s Darling Dukling staycation (starting from $1,999), guests can enjoy a private 60-minute charter on the Dukling, the sole remaining original Chinese junk in Hong Kong.

Back at the hotel, guests can anticipate ending the night in a harbour view room with the Hong Kong skyline in the background and a chocolate gift box per night. Available until 31 August 2021.
