Enjoy a guilt-free break in the city, with or without the kids
From fun family-friendly hotels to lavish, upscale establishments, we’ve curated a collection of the best summer staycation deals for you to take your much-needed break this summer, right here in the city. Sometimes you just can’t get away over the summer, but that shouldn’t mean you still can’t take some time to kick back and relax. We’ve found some amazing family-friendly packages with plenty of fun-filled activities for the kids to get stuck into. Or if you need sometime away from the little ones (sometimes it’s needed), then there are some wonderfully luxurious options that might make for the perfect romantic weekend or for some quality time with your mum squad. Here are some of our favourite deals going this summer.
Le Meridien Cyberport is offering a plethora of fabulous staycation deals this summer! We’re especially excited about the family-friendly Summer Fun-tastic staycation, available until 2 September. Throughout the Summer, Le Meridien is offering up a fantastic selection of daily activities for parents and kids alike (with unlimited access!). Kids can get stuck into water polo games at the pool, take part in the mini-Olympic games or even experience an epic water balloon fight at the Cyberport waterfront park. Parents, take this time to do something for yourself too – from a relaxing morning stretching session to a more intense HIIT workout, or a refreshing aqua fitness class at the pool, the hotel has you covered.
If you’re looking for something a little less energetic, the mother and daughter spa treatment and afternoon tea set for two package is available for only $680! Or if you’re sans kids for the weekend with your partner, then it’s also well worth checking out Le Meridien’s relaxing Escape SPAcation for some amazing pampering. Alternatively, relax to the max with the South Escape Staycation and be greeted with signature eclairs and a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine upon arrival. The ultimate guilt-free getaway!
