Since it’s opening one year ago, Sheraton Hong Kong Tung Chung has turned T Bay into a vibrant new neighbourhood hotspot full of restaurants, bars and shops. With overseas guests thin on the ground, the hotel has reached out to Lantau residents by placing an emphasis on community involvement and positioning itself as an exciting place to eat, drink and staycation.

Of the many memorable staycations on offer this year, all designed to cheer us up at a time when overseas travel has been nigh on impossible, the Pilot for a Day Staycation stands out. Guests were invited to get airborne using an A320 flight simulator. There was also the Magical Mermaid Fitness Staycation, part of the hotel’s wellness programme, in which professional mermaid-dance fitness trainers taught guests to turn and flip in the water. (Tails were provided.)

As the most global brand within Marriott International’s portfolio, sitting at the centre of hundreds of neighbourhoods around the world, Sheraton’s signature community experience is designed not only to attract locals to the hotel but also to support and involve local businesses. One of Sheraton Hong Kong Tung Chung’s focuses has been on the Lantau farming community, with a unique farm-to-table concept enabling diners to meet the local organic farmers who produce their food.

In the lead-up to the holidays, the fun has already started at Sheraton Hong Kong Tung Chung with a special afternoon tea at the Lobby Lounge running December 1 to 30 (try the Strawberry and Mint Mousse Santa Hat) and a festive set lunch at Sunset Grill, weekdays December 1 to 24.

Café Lantau’s Xmas offering kicks into gear later in the month with a seasonal lunch buffet December 25 to 27 and January 1, and dinner buffet December 24, 25, 26 and 31. We can expect a raclette cheese station, a cold cuts station with hand-carved Iberico shoulder, and a carvery serving up Australian grain-fed bone-in ribeye, butterball turkey with all the trimmings, turkey sliders and grilled Boston lobster. The dessert station, decked out like a snowy Alpine Village, provides traditional treats like gingerbread, mince pies and red bean wheel cake.

Meanwhile, back at Sunset Grill, the festive set dinner (December 24, 25 and 31) is packed with classic Christmas dishes. Starters include citrus-cured king salmon, Lobster Bisque and Foie Gras Torchon with Sauternes Jelly. The selection of main courses includes grass-fed beef fillet and whole line-caught wild Atlantic seabass in Beurre Blanc; for dessert there’s Baked Alaska.

Sunset Grill’s Christmas Day Champagne Brunch is similarly gourmand, a feast to celebrate the season, with an optional two hours of free-flow Veuve Cliquot Ponsardin, cocktails, beer and wine.

Christmas brunch starts with a seafood sharing platter, which includes Russian snow crab legs, Boston lobster and oysters; followed by sharing starters like Australian tenderloin steak tartare, Maryland sweet crab cake and confit turkey salad. For mains, there’s bone-in ribeye for two, New Zealand Lamb rack with Shakshuka eggs, turkey escalope, porcini and wild mushroom risotto, and seabass amongst others. The Christmas Dessert Bar includes Chestnut Buche de Noel, Red Velvet Cake, 64% dark chocolate mousse, blood orange panna cotta and of course, mince pies.

Foodies should also note that Sunset Grill Party Menus are available for private celebrations. Options include beetroot and gin-cured gravlax salmon, signature steak tartare, seabass and bone-in ribeye.

The celebrations continue into 2022 at the New Year’s Eve Countdown Party at Sunset Grill from 11pm to 2am on December 31. Tickets include two glasses of Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin per person plus ‘free-flow’ canapés, and a live DJ to dance you into the new year. Considering spending the night? Check out the hotel’s Countdown Staycation Package which includes one night in a deluxe ocean-view room, free admission for two to the countdown party and buffet breakfast for two in Café Lantau.
