How about some more good news to go along with the decline in new cases of COVID-19 in Hong Kong?
We’re talking about staycation and dining packages that are enticing us out of our hidey-holes. I mean, we’re not going anywhere else for awhile, so let’s explore this great city of ours, support local businesses and get some crazy-good deals while we’re at it.
Eaton Hong Kong
Eaton Hong Kong certainly has us both saving and salivating. The Relax, Refuel and Recharge package (from
$1,070/night) includes a room upgrade, late checkout, breakfast and – the cherry on top – a lunch or dinner buffet for two at The Astor, where, from 1 June, the buffet is being transformed into a regional Asian smorgasbord. Travel around Asia from the comfort of your dining chair and indulge in unlimited dishes from Japan, Korea, Taiwan and Thailand.

Le Méridien Cyberport
Over in Cyberport, you’ll find a little oasis away from the hustle of Hong Kong with the South Escape package (from $1,350/night). When you arrive at Le Méridien – in a chauffeured Tesla, natch – you’ll be greeted with the popping of sparkling wine corks and the hotel’s signature pastries. This package for two includes a $200 voucher for dining at any of the hotel’s restaurants as well as breakfast at Prompt Bistro. This sounds like classy way to take a break from the norm. Valid until 1 December 2020.

Gold Coast Hotel
For a relaxing beachside getaway that’s about as far from Central as you can get, check out the Savour • Stay • Save promotion at Gold Coast Hotel. Spend a minimum of $1,200 at any of the hotel’s restaurants (we love

Other Sino Hotels properties (Royal Pacific Hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui, Island Pacific Hotel in Sai Ying Pun, The Pottinger in Central and City Garden Hotel in North Point) are offering similar deals; for instance, at City Garden Hotel, you only have to spend $680 dining there to get a night’s stay for just $380!
