Festive Christmas staycation at East Hong Kong

It’s starting to look a lot like Christmas in Hong Kong. With most of us staying in the city for the holidays and looking for some festive cheer, it’s never a better time to book a staycation or a suitecation for an unforgettable extravaganza. Sweeping city-views, luxurious accommodation, romantic vibes, an array of food and drink deals – whatever your priority a mini holiday at East Hong Kong will not disappoint. 

Sweeping Vistas

The ecologically sensitive hotel has used recycled materials in its lobby decor. Smurfs-themed embellishments in the ‘Christmas Village’ are sure to attract the young ones and their families – not only is it a fun IG photo-opportunity – it also serves a lesson (or two) about sustainability and responsibility. 

Grab your wetsuits and the sunnies to the staycation because guests get access to the beautiful swimming pool and a direct booking gives a chance for a free upgrade to Harbour View room – daily breakfast and a bottle of Prosecco on the house.

The bright, open and spacious restaurant on the second floor has prepared an array of delectable Christmas delights – ‘boned and rolled’ turkey at brunch buffet, spiced honey and orange glazed gammon ham exclusive at semi-buffet lunch among other mouth-watering feasts. Christmas at the hotel comes with an all-you-can-eat pass and their dinner buffet featuring ranch reared boned turkey roll, spiced honey glazed Australian shoulder ham, antipasti, delicious desserts, among other delicacies is testament to that.
