Wash it all down with a revamped drinks offers masterminded by bartender Lorenzo Antinori, who recently joined the team.

The hotel also offers a host of complimentary activities, from poultice-making at the spa to cocktail masterclasses at Caprice Bar – just ask for the schedule when you check in.

The Peninsula Hong Kong
The city’s grande dame hotel brings it all together until one glamorous roof to create the ultimate staycation destination. You could spend all day at the opulent Peninsula Spa, enjoying indulgent, effective treatments, moving between the heat facilities and relaxation areas, and then retreating to the stunning pool deck for a swim and healthy lunch. The only stress you’ll have during your stay is deciding which of the many fine-dining options to take your meals at. Will it be high-end French in old-world surrounds at Gaddis, modern European at Felix, sumptuous Chinese at Spring Moon, or Swiss lodge-style comfort food at Chesa? Or maybe the famous, lavish afternoon tea in the lobby will be all you need. At the end of the day, retreat to one of the opulent rooms that meld traditional charm with 21st century modernity.

There’s a lot to love at this sumptuous André Fu-designed property tucked into a quiet location by the Wan Chai harborfront.

Tai O Heritage Hotel
If you’re looking for a charming, low-key getaway, head to Tai O and this chic boutique hotel nestled in a sleepy fishing village. The whole experience if geared towards living life in the slow lane, so use the opportunity to indulge in a digital detox, too. Choose one of the top suites here, the Sea Horse or the Sea Lion, to get the most out of your stay. In the days when the building used to be the Tai O Police Station, these two suites were an office and the officer’s bar respectively; now, they’re charming, colonial-style boltholes with (fake) fireplaces, cozy beds and French doors. The hotel’s Tai O Lookout restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, dinner and afternoon tea, and many dishes draw on ingredients sourced from the surrounding fishing village – think Tai O fried rice and pork chop buns with shrimp paste. Don’t miss sunset from the arrival pier, and if you want to explore the surrounds, ask the concierge to put you on one of the hotel’s heritage tours.
The Deal: Tai O Heritage Hotel is currenly offering an Autumn Getaway package that includes one night’s accommodation, afternoon tea and breakfast. The package is priced from $1,389, and is available Sunday through Thursday.
