The Kerry boasts fabulous views across Victoria Harbour towards Hong Kong Island. Even if you opt for the city view room, you can still take advantage of the outlook from the roof top pool or terrace at the onsite bar, Red Sugar.

Stay in one of Hong Kongs’ most famous hotels. The Peninsula offers old world charm and true luxury. It sits just a stones throw from Kowloons biggest draws, whether it’s shopping on Nathan Road, taking in a concert at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre or chugging across Victoria on the Star ferry.
Use offer code PHK1928 for a discounted room rate, valid until 11th December. $3800 with breakfast and includes $800 dining credit. A late check out at 4pm means you can make the most of your short staycation. Another thought is that the money you save on not flying to your destination could instead be put towards a fabulous helicopter ride over Hong Kong.
Also a little secret if it’s your birthday coming up, room rates as low as HK $1800 if staying within a day of your birth date.
Hong Kong Disneyland
If you’re looking for a family friendly option, Disney is always a winner. Find out about current ticket offers for Hong Kong residents here, they are offering two park visits between now and Halloween for HK $688 (Hong Kong residents).

Macau – more than a Staycation, let’s call it a Just-over-the-waycation
If a Hong Kong staycation is too close to home, why not head over the water to neighbouring Macau. We call this a just-over-the-waycation. It’s may only be 65.7 kilometers from Hong Kong, but feels like half a world a way from the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong. With the choice of a high speed ferry or catching a bus across the new bridge, it’s easier than ever to get there.
There are lots of great offers, but if you want to cut out the hassle of booking ferry tickets and a hotel, you could try The Venetians’ ferry package. From $1549, it includes a Royal Deluxe suite for 2 and round trip ferry tickets, subject to availability of course.
Alternatively, if you’re taking the family, check out the St Regis, they have a nice package for 2 adults, 2 kids (under 12). It starts from $1888 per night. Package includes Deluxe Room, breakfast OR lunch and an age appropriate take home item for the kids.
Water Park Fun
Equally, if you’re taking the kids, consider buying a Galaxy Pass for plenty of water-park fun. You don’t have to be staying at the Galaxy to take advantage of this offer.
