The Best Of Hong Kong
Lifestyle News
By Gayatri Bhaumik | June 9th, 2020

Hopefully, you’re all doing the responsible thing and staying at home right now. And, as nice as it may be to have a little time to nest at home, we wouldn’t blame you for getting a bit of cabin fever (pro tip: if you need a few ideas for food deliveries or things to do at home, we got you). Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like any of us will be traveling any time soon. But, if you desperately need a change of scenery, our city’s hotels are putting on some seriously great offers for local residents – and you’ll be helping local businesses navigate this trying time. So here are some of the best Hong Kong staycations available right now – and yes, even if you do one, you should probably spend a lot of time holed up in your hotel room – because self-isolating will flatten the curve and get us through this much faster.

Try vibrational sound therapy during a Hong Kong staycation at the Four Seasons.

Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong

And, right now, they’re offering an exclusive Wellness Package for guests that need a little calming me-time amidst the current craziness. The offer includes a private 105-minute Vibrational Sound Therapy treatment at the hotel spa, which begins with a full-body marma massage then uses singing bowls to heal, soothe, and open blocked energy paths. You’ll also be treated to a Well Feeling set menu at The Lounge curated by Executive Chef Dirk Haltenhof. The two-night staycation is available through December 31, 2020 and is priced based on best available rates.
