Since COVID-19 has put most travel plans on hold, Hong Kong hotels are turning their attention to locals – and offering tempting staycations with dining deals, room upgrades and spa treatments.
Checking into a hotel can offer you the getaway you crave; wake up to a suite’s sweeping views of Victoria Harbour and spend the afternoon lounging by the pool or exploring a new neighbourhood, with a complimentary to-go picnic.
If you’re looking for a refreshing change of pace, consider these great-value staycations at The Upper House, The Kerry and more of the city’s choicest hotels.
Looking for more? Cathay Pacific Holidays has also put together some exclusive hotel deals for your getaway right here in our home city.
