Le Méridien Cyberport

Get away from the hustle and bustle of the city with a staycation at Le Méridien Cyberport. Located in the tranquil south side of Hong Kong, the hotel offers plenty of fresh air and greenery, making it the perfect haven to recharge. And with the hotel’s close proximity to hiking trails, Pok Fu Lam Country Park and southside beaches, guests are encouraged to relax and immerse themselves in nature. Or, if you’re wanting to completely switch off, you can just relax by the hotel’s gorgeous pool – cocktail in hand, of course! Available until the end of December 2019, the South Escape package ticks all the boxes. Not only is a daily buffet breakfast for two adults at Prompt restaurant included, but you can also enjoy a complimentary treat of two eclairs and one bottle of sparkling wine, along with $200 food and beverage credit per stay! And with a free Tesla pick up from HK Island, your staycation is only a short 15 minute ride away….

Rosewood Hong Kong

Infinity pool? Check. Personal butler? Check. Expressive arts therapy? Also check. If you’re looking to escape the bustling metropolis, Rosewood is the place to be. From guided meditation sessions to peerless harbour views, Rosewood is your private sanctuary where comfort meets sophisticated luxury. Be sure to check out Holt’s Café, which offers your favourite Cha Chaan Teng dishes with a contemporary twist. And, if you feel like a fancy afternoon tea, the Butterfly Room will definitely not disappoint. You’ll be pleased to hear the eco and sustainable initiatives seen at other Rosewood properties is a big part of the Hong Kong branch too.

If you’re looking for a staycation but can’t face parting with your pup, Rosewood is surprisingly dog-friendly t00. Win!

Kerry Hotel

As a Sassy favourite, this award-winning hotel is here to offer you a memorable staycation experience. From a relaxing aromatherapy massage at The Spa at Base Camp, to a dip in the infinity pool, you’ll find yourself immersed in the world of ultimate relaxation and rejuvenation. Looking for a unique dining experience? Its signature restaurants like Hung Tong and Bong-Italian Restaurant have our mouths watering. If live bands are your thing, head over to Dockyard for a relaxing evening. The prices here are super reasonable, but the quality remains. If you’ve got visiting guests, the afternoon tea here is also a real treat!

Gold Coast Hotel

If you’re after a beachside holiday, look no further than Gold Coast Hotel, only 30 minutes from Central! You’ll have exclusive direct access to Golden Beach and the rooms and suites offer open sea views or look out at the Gold Coast Yacht and Country Club.

Follow a morning at the beach with an afternoon under the shade of the palm trees at the main pool. You can burn off the daily buffet and poolside BBQ with a beach walk or run, or at the well-equipped gym. For some fine dining, make sure you check out the hotel’s Michelin-recommended Chinese restaurant, YUE.

House 1881

Why travel elsewhere when you can travel back in time? Located in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui and formerly the Marine Police Headquarters, 1881 Heritage offers skyline views above, exquisite gardens below, and a piece of history everywhere you look. Upon first glance, the outdoor areas perfectly encapsulate Hong Kong’s colonial history and present an authentic tribute to Hong Kong’s past. With its exquisite old-school interior, this cultural landmark will make you feel like a Hong Kong starlet in a Wong Kar-Wai movie.

The Murray Hong Kong, a Niccolo Hotel

Located in the heart of Hong Kong, this staycation destination is definitely worth the splurge! If you’re looking to rejuvenate and recover from a tiring week of work, check out the customised rituals in one of the five well-appointed spa suites, followed by a dip in the indoor pool. With experienced masseuse and yoga instructors, you can be sure that every experience will be exactly what you’re looking for – in the most relaxing way. If you’re looking for an extra energy boost, sign up for one of the outdoor boot-camps while enjoying the excellent view!

Eaton Hong Kong

Eaton Hong Kong is like nothing like we’ve ever seen before – purifying Himalayan salt lamps, Tai Chi classes, climate activism, you name it. Think of this place as less of a traditional hotel and more of a millennial community hub. With an in-house radio station and mini movie theatre, you’ll be able to explore the topics of climate change, gender and race with fellow travellers from around the world. From crystal healing therapy to tofu gnocchi, this place is as alternative as a staycation destination gets in Hong Kong.

The Peninsula Hong Kong

Treating yourself to a (slightly) over-the-top weekend staycation? From 18-minute helicopter tours to a dinner in the Peninsula Yacht, the Peninsula Hong Kong is here to guarantee that none of your wildest dreams are out of reach. Widely recognised as an international icon of hospitality, the legendary “Grande Dame of the Far East” has offered a blend of the finest Eastern and Western hospitality, classical grandeur and timeless elegance for 90 years. If you’re looking to end the evening in a low-key fashion that doesn’t involve helicopters and yachts, Felix has long been a favourite for soaking in spectacular skyline vistas in style.

J Plus by YOO

If you’re looking for a super quirky boutique hotel, J Plus by YOO is a hidden gem with a truly contemporary vibe. From free-flow wine to mini kitchens, you don’t even really have to leave your suite if you don’t want to! Covered in cool modern art, we love that it brings alternative elements to transform your Hong Kong experience in a fun and youthful way. If you’re looking to get away from the city while still being surrounded by life, J Plus by YOO is definitely the place to go!

Mandarin Oriental

Mandarin Oriental is everything you’d expect and more. Whilst five-star hotels are easy to come by in this city, (consistent) five-star service is tricky to find. With its top-notch decor and interior design, the Verandah-style room is perfect to unwind for a romantic getaway. There’s something about the gorgeously draped curtains on either side of the king size bed that transforms the bright, airy room into the cosiest of cocoons.

As an added bonus, this hotel is tastebud heaven. From the rose petal jam and perfectly fluffy scones in the afternoon tea, to the Fine Dining Dim Sum Restaurant (with debatably the world’s best beef tenderloin dim sum – complete with 96 layers of heavenly pastry). Whether you’re looking for a hotel to really “WOW” visiting guests, or whether you’re a Hong Kong resident desperately in need of a break, Mandarin Oriental is the ideal place to really ignite your love of the city.

Mandarin Oriental, Connaught Road Central, Hong Kong, 2522 0111,

One of the newer luxury boutique hotels located smack bang in Central, One96 is beautifully designed. It’s a five-minute walk to Soho and LKF, and just as close to the Macau ferry terminal. Its view is breathtaking and the amenities are too long to list! Ideal for visiting guests looking to stay at the centre of the city. Plus, the free continental breakfast offers a ton of options to start each day off on the right foot.

Auberge Discovery Bay

Need a break from the city’s hustle and bustle? Auberge Discovery Bay is your place. Only 25 minutes from Central, at the Auberge you’ll be transported to an island oasis, surrounded by ocean views and complete with first-class facilities, including Spa Botanica, which offers 10 treatment rooms and over 50 treatment options. Get your workout done at the gym (with 360 degree views) before chilling with a book at the poolside lounge and cooling down in the 25m outdoor swimming pool. If you’re after an active holiday, take advantage of the Activity Centre, which offers guided hiking, Discovery Bay bike tours and plenty of other fun activities. Food-wise, you’ll be sorted at the open-plan Café bord de Mer & Lounge; complete with an outdoor terrace, this is the perfect spot for a casual breakfast, lunch or dinner, or perhaps a cocktail or two.

Auberge Discovery Bay Hong Kong, 88 Siena Avenue, Discovery Bay, Lantau Island, Hong Kong, 2295 8288,

The Pottinger Hong Kong

Another favourite of ours, this luxury hotel has three restaurants and two bars, although considering it’s located near some of the best dining and drinking around, you will have a hard time deciding whether to eat out or stay in. From pretty decor to excellent staff service, this one is definitely worth the splurge.

The Pottinger Hong Kong, 74 Queen’s Road Central, Central, Hong Kong, 2308 3188,

14 / 23

Madera Hollywood

Okay, it’s not really low budget, but this hotel is still worth mentioning because families, couples and business folks alike seem to rave about it. With its funky, artsy and incredibly cool design (you’re greeted by neoclassical murals with Charlie Chaplin, Marilyn Monroe, Katharine Hepburn and Frank Sinatra). This upscale hotel is just steps from Soho and is ideal for creatives visiting Hong Kong for the first time.

Madera Hollywood, 53-55 Hollywood Road, Central, Hong Kong, 3913 2888,

Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel

Why not turn a Disneyland day trip into a novelty staycation at Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel? Embrace your inner child and feel like a big kid at this Victorian seaside palace, complete with live music in the 6-storey lobby and a Mickey Mouse-shaped garden maze! The zero-depth entry outdoor pool is home to a twisting, 40m waterslide and a heated whirlpool and private cabana; there’s also a Victorian-inspired indoor pool – perfect for doing laps (and for some peace and quiet).

Hit some balls or shoot some hoops with friends at the tennis court or multi court before you go off to dine at the Enchanted Garden Restaurant, featuring international-themed buffets for breakfast, lunch and dinner. For a mix of Asian and Western dishes, head to Walt’s Café, or for a fun meal, check out Crystal Lotus for Disney Dim Sum. Take a leaf out of Peter Pan’s book and “never grow up”.

The InterContinental

The InterContinental is famed for its great views of Hong Kong Island. The service and food is impeccable. The spa is world-class with a plethora of treatments to be tried and the gym ticks all your mainstream exercise needs. This is a great one to bring your visiting family and friends to! If you’re looking to truly treat yourself (and your loved one) book yourself in to the spa for a full-day package which includes treatments, plus access to the exclusive pool and gym!

The Island Shangri-La

From romantic staycation to a girls-only getaway, The Island Shangri-La is classy from top to bottom and is perfect for every occasion. The hotel itself oozes glamour and old-school elegance, and if you stay in a harbour facing room, you’ll be astounded by the view. On top of that, the breakfast at Petrus is out of the world – so generous and extravagant (hello Lobster Scrambled Eggs).

Hyatt Sha Tin

The Hyatt Sha Tin is a 5-star resort hotel which has everything you need for some real downtime, from a 25m outdoor swimming pool, tennis court and fitness centre (with steam and sauna), to rejuvenating treatments and meditation at the Melo Spa.

You’ll eat like kings here too, with Sha Tin 18 boasting four show kitchens and authentic Cantonese and Northern Chinese; sit back on the restaurant’s outdoor terrace for breathtaking mountain views. Have a hearty meal from the buffet or a la carte menu at the slick all-day dining Café, and head to the Patisserie after for a sweet treat like its signature Sha Tin Apple Pie (and a glass of wine… or two perhaps?). Tin Tin Bar is perfect for drinks pre or post-dinner or cool down with a cocktail at the Pool Bar.

W Hong Kong

The effortlessly cool kid on the block, W Hong Kong needs no introduction. Located in West Kowloon, right above Kowloon station and Elements Mall, its convenient spot makes it popular for out of town guests to celebrities visiting HK. With panoramic views of the island, a roof top pool on the 76th floor and the award-winning Bliss spa, there’s not much more we could ask for. Kitchen’s weekend buffets will satisfy the pickiest of eaters, and you’ll be mesmerised with the spread of unique flavours and options!

The Olympian

Located in the trendy West Kowloon area is The Olympian hotel. Situated conveniently near Olympic MTR and one stop away from Kowloon station (which links to the Airport Express train!), you are greeted with opulent decor and warm faces as you pull into the roundabout entrance.

With only 32 deluxe rooms and suites, there’s a sense of exclusivity without any pretentiousness. There’s a 24-hour gym (or ask the concierge for a jogging map to explore the area!) and a private lounge that serves breakfast in the morning. With plenty to do around the neighbourhood, this is a great place to go “home” to and relax.

The Olympian, 18 Hoi Fai Road, West Kowloon, Kowloon, Hong Kong, 3199 8888,

Hotel Stage

Just a quick MTR ride away from Hong Kong Island, this TST gem is a favourite among its clients. This place is also perfect for retail therapy – just a three-minute walk to the Jade Market, an eight-minute walk to Miramar Shopping Centre, and a 14-minute walk to the Ladies Market. You will feel good about how chic and modern this little boutique hotel is, offering many amenities, including a handy phone with your stay!

Four Seasons

Four Seasons is the epitome of sheer luxury, utter perfection and attention to detail. A staycation here is the ultimate indulgence – whether it’s for a celebration, a gift or simply just because. From the moment of check-in, to the afternoon tea, to the live music, to the harbour-facing pool and the immaculate, spacious rooms, you can expect faultless luxury through and through. The rooms include impossibly comfortable beds, deep baths, rain showers and engulfing dressing gowns. Always a win.

Plus, the Holistic Healing treatments offered at the Spa, and the new Well Feeling initiatives are a great way to make sure the decadence is based around what your mind and body needs. We can guarantee that you’ll leave your stay feeling transformed.

Ovolo Hotels

If you’re looking for a night away from the city and can’t bear the thought of leaving your furry friend at home, look no further then Ovolo Hotels. The hotel has locations in both Wong Chuk Hang and Central, and its new V.I.Pooch Package is the perfect option for dog parents who fancy a staycation – and want to bring pampered pooches along for the ride! The hotel goes all out to make sure our four-legged friends are well looked after, with the package including their own doggy bed with an eating/drinking mat, food bowl and even a “Doggy Bag” with a specially-designed dog toy and treats inside! You can find more info on the package here. For those without four-legged friends, the hotel is still a great staycation option, with rooms including a free minibar, breakfast and happy hour when booking direct. We particularly like the Southside location for getting away from the busy city.

Ovolo Southside, 64 Wong Chuk Hang Road, Wong Chuk Hang, Hong Kong, 

Ovolo Central, 2 Arbuthnot Road, Central, Hong Kong,
