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 indulging in a leisurely lunch or exploring a new neighbourhood.
If you’re looking for a refreshing change of pace, consider these great-value staycations at The Upper House, The Peninsula, Four Seasons 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.

Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong
The Mandarin may be one of the city’s most storied hotels, but it’s far from stuck in its ways. Instead, the MO is fresh off a six-month renovation that shows what a little gilt-and-polish can really do. Most of the work has gone into the top floors, which have been entirely overhauled: take the Michelin-starred Man Wah, updated with rich blue interiors that provide a thoroughly modern accent to its classic Cantonese fare. Make time – and book ahead – for a stop at hip new izakaya The Aubrey, whose plush interiors clash and blend gorgeously alongside stunning harbour views from the 25th floor. The other major upgrade has been the all-new Mandarin Club lounge, where warm reds and gentle golds are offset by clean lines, vintage art and that perfect view – not to mention a fairly constant flow of food. In the evenings, the well-stocked bar cart lets you work your way through a few sundowners – or line up a full scotch tasting. The new Club Escape package includes an off-menu tasting experience for two at Man Wah, a signature cocktail for two at The Aubrey, late check-out until 6pm and full Club lounge access. The package starts from $5,880 per night, available until 30 June.
