Enjoy an Egg-ceptional Staycation at Auberge Discovery Bay Hong Kong

Posted in : Lifestyle on by : Around DB Comments: 0

The worst part of travelling is the schlepping – luggage, taxi cabs, waiting in queues. It’s enough to make you tired even before you’ve wrestled the suitcases out of the closet. Lucky for us, Hong Kong is full of staycation opportunities. Here in DB it is a very fine line between home-life and resort-life with the luxurious Auberge Discovery Bay Hong Kong just a short bus ride away for DB residents – and only a ferry ride away for those living in Hong Kong or Kowloon.

This year, the Easter holiday runs from Good Friday to Easter Monday (April 19 to 22), giving us a four-day weekend to relax and enjoy the best that DB has to offer through a mini-staycation in our own backyard.

Check in at the Auberge where the ‘Easter Egg Hunt Room Package’ includes two nights’ stay in a mountain-view room, daily breakfast buffet, one visit to the Easter dinner buffet and one admission ticket to the Egg Hunt on Tai Pak Beach. This two-night room package, designed for two adults and one child, is priced at HK$4,538* and available from April 18 to 22.

While the package includes one trip to the special Easter dinner buffet at Café bord de Mer & Lounge, it’s well worth the splurge to indulge in the dinner buffet on both nights of your staycation. Be sure to sample the shepherd’s pie with foie gras terrine and the braised duck with abalone and mushroom. And don’t forget that each dinner buffet guest is entitled to enjoy half a lobster baked in cheese! Make sure you save room for dessert, which includes a wide selection of colourful Easter treats, notably the ‘Funny Bunny Chestnut Meringue Basket.’

During both lunch and afternoon tea servings, children can occupy themselves in the Café bord de Mer & Lounge kids’ corner. While they paint Easter eggs, you can enjoy your meal in (relative) peace and quiet – a true luxury.

The egg painting is just the beginning of the Easter fun on offer at the Auberge as the Easter Kids Carnival is another must do. Activities on offer at the carnival,  from April 19 to 22 – 11am to 5pm – include game booths, a bouncy castle, balloon twisting and a pool hunt.

Of course, you’ll also want your kids to enjoy the main event – the Egg Hunt on Tai Pak Beach. From April 19 to 20, kids, aged three to 10 years, are given the chance to search for colourful Easter eggs hidden in the sand. Across both days, children are divided into different age groups and allocated different ‘hunting times.’ Kids aged three to four years are up at 12pm and 4.30pm; kids aged five to six years at 1.30pm; and kids aged seven to 10 years at 3pm.

There are over 30,000 fabulous prizes on offer, with every egg collected entitling a child to redeem a prize. As an added bonus, egg hunters who find one of the eight ‘Grand Eggs,’ hidden alongside the smaller ones, get a special prize (with these prizes worth up to HK$9,000 in total). All participants receive a Welcome Goodies Bag at the start of their hunt and a Certificate of Excellence at the end.

Along with the Egg Hunt there is also the Fun Fair at DB Plaza and Tai Pak Beach. The open-air fair runs from April 19 to 20 – 10.30am to 6.30pm – to coincide with the Egg Hunt and provide plenty of additional amusement and excitement for the kids. As in previous years, there’ll be six interactive inflatables plus any number of carnival-type game booths. Let the Easter fun begin!
