Anyone arriving in Hong Kong is currently required to complete a 14-day quarantine, in keeping with government COVID-19 prevention measures.
As of 13 November, all arrivals will need to spend their quarantine at a hotel (except those from the Chinese mainland, Macao and Taiwan, who can quarantine at home).
If you’re facing this quarantine situation, here’s the good news: there is a whole host of Hong Kong hotels available to meet a variety of budgets and tastes. Each is implementing special hygiene and safety measures, such as issuing single-access room keys to those in quarantine and setting aside quarantine-specific hotel floors.
We’ve scoured the city to highlight the very best options – hotels with special in-room amenities, scenic views, outdoor spaces and concierge services to see guests soundly through their extended stay.
Hong Kong Island
Home comforts and entertainment galore $$-$$$
Ovolo Southside has crafted a quarantine package that brings home-like comforts to your hotel room. An indoor leafy plant can help enhance your mood; yoga mats, dumbbells and resistance bands can be delivered on request; and mindfulness kits (which include colouring books and brain teasers) can while away the time you spend offline. Rooms are also equipped with Apple TV and Alexa for those looking to catch up on the latest entertainment offerings. Daily breakfast, mini bar treats and morning coffee are complimentary. A quarantine concierge is on hand to help pick up essentials during your stay, while a celebratory bottle of Cava awaits on completion of your quarantine. Expect similar perks and concierge service if you quarantine at Ovolo’s Central or Sheung Wan properties.

L’Hotel Island South
The new age of social distancing $-$$
Located in the trendy Wong Chuk Hang district, L’Hotel Island South combines the benefits of city living with the relaxation of a suburban retreat, including ample mountain and sea views.

There’s also the rare option to book two bedrooms with a connecting door, should you arrive in Hong Kong on the same flight with a group of family or friends. In keeping with the need for social distancing and COVID-19 prevention measures, a team of robots (Genie, Gena and Genus) is at the ready for contact-less food delivery. Guests simply input a code they receive from the hotel to open up the meal compartment and then send them on their way.
