Tired and stressed? Go for a staycation at these boutique and luxury hotels, and we promise that you’ll feel refreshed and re-energised in no time

We’re kind of obsessed with mini-breaks here at Honeycombers, so we’ve rounded up the best hotels for you to have a staycation in Hong Kong (plus, there will be hotel brunches!) Pack an overnight bag and get ready to check in.
Where to staycation in Hong Kong
Hotel VIC on the Harbour
One of the newest hotels in Hong Kong, Hotel VIC on the Harbour is perfectly located in North Point; close enough to the action if you want it, but also far enough away. Highlights include the stunning infinity pool, the rooftop bar Cruise, where you can enjoy the harbour views, a VR workout machine in the gym and self check-in/out services to help you avoid the queues. Oh and the buffet dinner at The Farmhouse in INSANE!

Posted by Honeycombers Hong Kong on Tuesday, 21 May 2019
Whether you’re looking to surprise your S.O. with a romantic weekend away, or if you and the family just need a relaxing change of scene, Le Méridien Cyberport is one of our favourite places to staycation in Hong Kong. Spend time in the sun next to their fab swimming pool, or get cosy in the rooms before exploring all of their different dining options. We really love the modern art that brings this hotel to life, and the friendly staff who make staying here an absolute delight.

Cordis Hong Kong
It may seem like an oxymoron to go to Mong Kok for a restful staycation, but hear us out. When it comes to a staycation in Hong Kong, Cordis Hong Kong is a must-visit, thanks to it’s epic swimming pool and Chuan Spa that blends TCM with relaxation techniques. Splash out and upgrade to a corner room, we promise you’ll love the view, and you’ll have access to the awesome Club Lounge that has one of the best bars we’ve seen in a hotel lounge and a changing selection of daily food delights. #takeusbacktoCordisHongKong!

Are you as obsessed with good design as we are? If so, you must, must, must treat yourself to a weekend at The Fleming in Wan Chai. While the hotel may not have a swimming or spa, it more than makes up for this with lush bathrooms, comfy beds, a great mini-bar selection and in-house restaurant Osteria Marzia. It’s just a general good time, and you won’t be disappointed.

Hong Kong’s first warehouse-conversion hotel, Ovolo Southside brings the fun to the funkiest little area in town. Nestled beside industrial warehouses, artist’s studios and great coffee joints, this hotel knows that service is key.
Inside, modern design elements and artwork bring the space to life, while guest rooms have a monochromatic palette. With three eateries to choose from (we are obsessed with Komune), you certainly won’t go hungry here, and you can’t leave without having a cocktail at the rooftop bar, Above.

Tai O Heritage Hotel
The building that houses the Tai O Heritage Hotel was once a police station, built to combat the pirates (yes, we said pirates) who were prevalent in the neighbouring waters. In 2010, it was converted into a quaint, nine-bedroom hotel, with guest rooms overlooking both the water and the surrounding greenery. Rooms and suites are spacious and feature a blend of contemporary and traditional furnishings – think a Hamptons-type vibe – with some photos of old Tai O added as a nod to the history of the site. Meals can be enjoyed at Tai O Lookout, the glass-roofed restaurant on the first floor that has a panoramic view of the South China Sea.
