We've tried-and-tested all these family-friendly hotels in Hong Kong for your staycationing pleasure
Enjoying a staycation in Hong Kong is popular with Hong Kongers looking to recharge with the family (or to escape them entirely). While there are loads of sustainable family resorts in Asia and plenty of great family-friendly hotels in Macau, a staycation in town avoids any added organisational hassle that comes with travel, so we’ve compiled a list (in no particular order) of our favourite family-friendly hotels in Hong Kong for a staycation, enjoy!
Family-friendly hotels in Hong Kong for a staycation
1. Silvermine Beach Hotel
Lantau is home to some of Hong Kong’s most incredible hiking trails, countless options all varying in difficulty. You can go camping, exploring the rock pools, mountain climbing, enjoy several beautiful beaches, jump on cable cars for a bird’s eye view or visit an impressively large Buddha. Whatever you decide, the family will love it. Boho style cafe jaunts are dotted around the island where you can get an excellent coffee or set up for a family brunch. With so much to do on the Island, having Silvermine Beach Hotel located on its very own beach is a great way to extend your day trip with the family right into the weekend.

Who doesn’t want to get lost in a Mickey Mouse shaped garden maze? The Disneyland Hotel is home to the weird and wonderful world of a child’s wildest dreams realised.

There is really nothing better than watching your children’s pure excitement in reaction to this magical wonderland, making it one of the best family-friendly hotels in Hong Kong. Why not have an action-packed day and instead of the long trip home, look forward to checking in and unwinding. Followed by a family breakfast with Mickey Mouse, of course!

Whichever room you choose – whether you splurge or book a standard – they all have fantastic views of the beautiful harbour. Note, try some of their WWF approved sustainable seafood and choose from their ‘Ocean friendly’ menu.

9. Kerry Hotel
Kerry Hotel is a relatively new addition to the Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts’ repertoire. First and foremost a luxury hotel; however, it diversifies with a strong focus on family and lifestyle at its core. The group wants to create an urban resort with a long list of different experiences. The hotel offers outdoor green spaces (of which we’re big fans), as well as a diverse mix of dining options and family and activities for kids. The kids will love the surprising amount of green space; five different dining options and the impressive views from the outdoor pool. The adults will most definitely relish the unwavering luxury and relaxation, it’s definitely one of our top favourite family-friendly hotels in Hong Kong.
