Not travelling this summer? No Worries! Book a family staycation in Hong Kong instead.

As much as we love the thought of jetting off to a tropical beach or another urban escape, vacations look set to continue closer to home for a while yet. Thankfully, we’re spoilt for choice with some true hotel gems right on our doorstep – perfect to make the most of your time off with the kids. Whether you want to get back to nature with glamping, splash in the pool to cool off from the summer heat, or are simply in need of a change of scene, we’ve got staycations in Hong kong to suit all tastes. A change is as good as a rest after all. Just keep in mind that you may need to book several days in advance to avoid disappointment…

Editor’s Note: The situation in Hong Kong regarding closures and restrictions on opening hours due to the coronavirus is constantly evolving. Many businesses are taking extra precautions, but please make sure you follow the latest government advice and stay home if you have recently travelled overseas, have interacted with anyone who has been away, or display any symptoms. Also, check directly with each hotel prior to booking to avoid disappointments on deals or facilities.

Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong

Something magical is happening this summer at the Mandarin Oriental! For a limited time only, the Magical Chamber is opening and your young wizards and witches are invited. When you book your spell-binding summer staycation your family will immediately be caught up in the experience as you arrive via the Museum Pop-up in the East Lobby. Then, the kids will be treated to a magical photo booth, tattoos and an invisible experience (yes…you read that correctly!). There’s also a Magical Potions Workshop at The Chinnery (pictured above) which we know they’ll love. Sassy parents will appreciate the opulence and hospitality that is synonymous with the Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong as well as the daily breakfast and set dinner menu available during your 24-hour stay.

The Park Lane Hong Kong, a Pullman Hotel

This summer, The Park Lane Hong Kong is allowing parents to relax and enjoy a true vacation over their children’s school holidays. When you book ​your staycation at Pullman, the kids can join one of the exciting classes and games on offer on the activity schedule. So you could have them become little scientists to complete a mission, try the emerging alternative sport, dodge disc, or enjoy family yoga! Kids can spend time in the “tried and tested” playroom – guaranteed to be great fun!. You can also book additional classes (or for a second child) at a reasonable rate so no one misses out! Located in Causeway Bay with easy access to Hong Kong’s most popular shopping and recreational spots, The Park Lane Hong Kong offers the luxury and stunning harbour views of a holiday resort with the convenience of city stay.

The summer staycation package is available from Friday, 25 June to Sunday, 29 August 2021. Book before Saturday, 10 July 2021 (or book two rooms or more) to enjoy $100 off the package price.

Conrad Hong Kong

The pool at the Conrad is reason enough for families to book a staycation. Surrounded by Admiralty’s skyscrapers it truly is an oasis in the heart of the city. The rooms are spaciously appointed with views over the mountainside greenery or the city and weekend brunch at Nicholini’s is always a winner when there are hungry mouths to feed!

Four Seasons

The Four Seasons has long been synonymous with luxury in Hong Kong. Fine dining aficionados are well catered for with the three-Michelin starred Caprice and Lung King Heen along with the two-Michelin starred Sushi Saito. It’s worth booking a babysitter so you can indulge once the kids are tucked up in bed. Take a look at the Summer at the Four Seasons option with $800 dining credit, if shopping mall vouchers and more (from Tuesday, 15 June, to Thursday, 30 September 2021).

Grand Hyatt

The Grand Hyatt has long been home to one of our favourite family-friendly alfresco brunches in Hong Kong and if you’ve been looking for an excuse to linger a bit longer and fully enjoy the facilities on offer, a family staycation is the perfect opportunity. We love the beautiful harbour view rooms, and of course, indulging in a treat or two at the Plateau Spa (restrictions permitting). The hotel has the Summer Escape package that includes daily breakfast, ice cream for the kids, spending credits, late check outs and more.

Harbour Grand Hong Kong, North Point

Looking for a little luxury without the price tag that comes along with a Central address? Consider a stay at the Harbour Grand Hong Kong in North Point. There are beautiful harbour view rooms and a range of dining options both in the hotel and in the surrounding neighbourhood (and a gorgeous outdoor swimming pool overlooking Victoria Harbour for when restrictions are lifted). With various staycation packages and special offers to be had, this has got to be one of the best deals in town

Sassy Mama tip: Take the kids and head up to the 42nd floor at 8pm to watch the Symphony of Lights with a unique view of the lights on both sides of Victoria Harbour.

The Langham

This hotel gets the seal of approval from one Sassy baby who loved her recent staycation (teepee, teddy and rocking horse included!). With its 156th anniversary celebrations this year, opt for one of the staycation offers, which includes perks such as daily breakfast for two, gift vouchers, refreshments, discounts and more. They will also provide you with a comfy cot for VIP guests as well as activities to keep them entertained. One Sassy Mama recommends staying in the suite which has a door to the bedroom, so you can settle your little one down for the night while you crack open a bottle of bubbly and relax in the other room. Bliss! In keeping with its British heritage celebrations, book in for the Afternoon Tea with Alice experience (inspired by Lewis Carroll’s much loved Alice In Wonderland), available at Palm Court from now until Saturday, 31 July 2021.

Ritz Carlton

Treat the family to a luxurious, sky-high stay at the top of the ICC with Ritz Carlton. As part of the family staycation offerings, you can book in for the Ritz Kids Night Safari.

Be sure to book this one in advance to ensure availability! If you’re staying at the Ritz Carlton and have a budding pilot at home, consider signing him or her up for the Ritz Kids Aviator Adventure as well.

Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel

Disneyland Hotels

No Hong Kong family staycation roundup would be complete without a mention of Disney! And the Disney Cast definitely know how to bring the magic of summer life (we’re sure you’ll be wowed with the attention to detail!). You have three hotels to choose from: Disney Explorers Lodge, Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel (pictured above) or Disney’s Hollywood Hotel (currently closed). Disneyland Park aside (see our guide to Hong Kong Disneyland for tips), there is also plenty of fun to be had at the hotels. We’re sure your youngsters will love the facilities at the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel, including the Children’s Activity Centre full of Disney-themed arts and craft, games and movie nights. Be sure to check out all the special hotel offers up for grabs right now.

Gold Coast Hotel

A Hong Kong staycation at the Gold Coast Hotel is the closest you can get to feeling like you’re a world away without even heading to the airport. Just a 30-minute drive from Central and you’ll arrive at a palm-fringed pool haven! The kids can be let loose at the water park (currently closed), Sharks and Pirates Adventure Zone or the outdoor Kids Island (all open). Make the most of the room facilities by retiring to one of the awesome kid-themed rooms. Future astronauts will love the outer space room while little princesses will be right at home in their own carriage bed. You can also choose from safari, pirate, dinosaur, carnival, racing car and even a Hong Kong-themed room (complete with a tram for a bed!). With plenty of offers to choose from, be sure to check out the Kids Summer Adventure and Summer Coast Life Staycation.

Ocean Park Marriott

As if a trip to Ocen Park itself isn’t enough, kids will be wowed from the moment they enter this hotel to find the 16-metre high aquarium! The experience continues after you check into a themed room of your choice. Will you stay in the Whiskers Submarine, Red Forest or Bao Bao Paradise room? Sassy Mama also loves that the Ocean Park Marriott has gone green, literally. There are vertical gardens covering the building and greenery on the rooftop (all helping with energy-saving too). The pool is arguably one of the best for kids in Hong Kong with slides and even a shark (not a real one, of course!). Head indoors instead to the Kids’ Corner playground (open from 9am to 6pm, with various toys) and let the kids blow off some energy! Can’t bear to leave your fur baby at home? Book your Paws on Vacation getaway that includes your doggie darling. Other staycation packages are also available.
