Whether you want to splash out on a full-blown winter staycation or simply enjoy some of the Xmas-themed fine dining opportunities and activities on offer, it’s time to treat yourself – and your family – to a little luxury at Lantau’s leading hotels.
Hong Kong Disneyland Resort
Festive window displays, a sparkling Christmas tree and even snow… you’ll find the perfect backdrop for a traditional holiday getaway at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort. And the icing on the (Christmas) cake? Hong Kong residents can enjoy a special discounted rate on the one-night Magical Staycation package at Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel through January 2.
To add to the magic of your stay (or park visit), there are festive buffets on offer at restaurants throughout the resort (and at the three hotels), and you can catch socially distanced performances from all your favourite Disney characters. Be sure to drop by the Frozen Fantasy Garden Village to enjoy the festive music, shop the merchandise carts, and hang out with Elsa and Anna. For reservations, call 3550 3388.
Regal Airport Hotel Hong Kong
While you may not be heading to the airport over the holidays, your children can still get in flight mode with Regal Airport Hotel Hong Kong’s aviation-themed family staycation package. The best part is the pint-sized pilot’s uniform that will be ready and waiting for them upon checking into the hotel. Each dry-cleaned pilot costume, to be returned upon check-out, is available in five sizes and includes a shirt with badges, tie, skirt or shorts, socks, and most importantly a pilot’s cap! Further fun activities for kids include cupcake-making classes, puppet-making workshops and a bouncy castle.
As the family-fun staycation package includes Christmas buffet dinner at the hotel’s Café Aficionado, be sure to check-in on Christmas Eve to catch the dinner service performances of Christmas carols by students from YMCA of Hong Kong Christian College in Tung Chung. For reservations, call 2286 8688.
Auberge Discovery Bay Hong Kong
One of the highlights of the Be Merry staycation package at Auberge Discovery Bay Hong Kong is the all-inclusive festive dinner buffet for two. Gourmands can get their fill of classic holiday delicacies, such as roast turkey, Lobster Mornay and sherry trifle, plus all the gingerbread and Christmas cookies they can eat. For the kids, the festive brunch and dinner buffet periods on December 25 and 26 will include face painting workshops, and a visit from Santa Claus – with a surprise gift!
While at the Auberge, you can unwind from all the holiday excitement at Spa Botanica with either the Warm Stone and Organic Oil Massage or the Warm Sea Shell and Organic Oil Massage, both of which provide the perfect combination of heat and essential oils to relieve tension and stress.
