While borders across the Asia-Pacific remain very much closed for the time being, the city’s preeminent hotel properties have been hard at work crafting a slate of exclusive experiences for Hongkongers hungry for a change in scenery.
Everything we miss about travelling can be found right on home turf: Whether it’s detoxifying getaways to soothe the body and soul, intimate escapes with exclusive gastronomic experiences, or exploratory packages to check out a lesser-visited part of town, there’s no better time to check into Hong Kong’s best hotels to explore the city under a new lens.
Partnering with the travel and lifestyle experts at Asia Miles, we’re presenting three of Hong Kong’s top hotel staycations with one-off perks that its members (and new joiners) can experience.
Kerry Hotel, Hong Kong
Spreading out along the Hung Hom waterfront, the stylish 16-storey Kerry Hotel is undoubtedly one of Hong Kong’s most photogenic spots for a staycation, thanks to its Instagrammable design, seemingly with a photo op at every turn. Sophisticated and clean-cut interiors feature the signature of award-winning Hong Kong designer Andre Fu, who poised the property as an urban resort with its light-filled, contemporary art-filled surrounds and extensive landscaped gardens. The 25-metre heated infinity pool is a highlight not to be missed, whether for a dip or as a backdrop to a snap-happy afternoon.
Adventure-seekers may want to tour the neighbourhood by signing up with one of Base Camp’s waterfront running clubs, or breathe in the fresh air with one of the hotel’s regularly scheduled yoga and pilates classes on the terrace. In the evenings, make a beeline to the Red Sugar Bar’s jungle terrace to soak in the views — prefaced by a stunning neon artwork by Adrian Wong by the entrance, which is most definitely worthy of a snap.
Asia Miles Exclusive: Asia Miles members booking the ‘Staycation with Double Miles’ package are entitled to sign up for a complimentary photography masterclass during their stay, led by Hong Kong-based photographer Denice Wong. The banker-turned-portrait and wedding photographer at Binc Photography has documented over 500 couples behind her lens to date. In 2018, she also started Hong Kong’s first Wedding Co-working Space, The Aisle.
For this special offer, Wong will be taking the groups on a tour of Kerry Hotel’s ‘Best Instagrammable Spots,’ where participants will learn how to capture the perfect light, pose and backdrop throughout the property and the most photogenic locales nearby*. Maximum two participants per booking.
Event dates: 25 October, 31 October, 7 November.
*Subject to weather arrangements.

Grand Hyatt Hong Kong
Celebrating its 31st anniversary this year, Grand Hyatt Hong Kong still speaks its timeless appeal as the Asian flagship of the brand. Recently unveiling a US$90 million refresh by Melbourne’s BAR Studio, the iconic hotel was a pioneer in the wellness hospitality space, converting its entire 11th floor to The Plateau Spa in 2004: marking a first for a hotel in Hong Kong to dedicate such energies towards the wellbeing sphere.
Alongside its legendary dining venues, wellness has always been at the forefront of Grand Hyatt Hong Kong’s allure, thanks to the lush leafy surrounds at its popular outdoor pool and poolhouse — the sunny venue used for the hotel’s daily yoga classes as well as to teach guests how to make healthy juices and tonics at home. Whether it’s a tranquil moment in concentration practising yoga, sipping a freshly blended wellness beverage you’ve learned to make yourself, or spending a few hours indulging in the spa programme at The Plateau Spa, a stay at the Grand Hyatt is always a revitalising one.
Asia Miles exclusive: Aside from earning 1,000 Asia Miles per stay (through to the end of November), Asia Miles members booking the ‘Escape 24’ package can reap a number of exclusive benefits: Guests can start the morning off right by signing up for a 60-minute morning yoga class, and also take part in an exclusive wellness beverage-making class hosted by Grand Hyatt’s culinary team.
During the class, guests can learn to blend and brew a host of healthy immunity-boosting tonics, including summer quenchers like the pink grapefruit, watermelon, grape and mint blend, or a pre-workout smoothie packed with coconut electrolytes.
To make it a truly revitalising getaway for the body and mind, guests will want to make the most of a 20 percent discount on spa treatments — another exclusive perk for Asia Miles members.
Event dates: The wellness beverage-making class and morning yoga classes will take place on 27 & 31 October and 3 & 7 November (Tuesdays & Saturdays only).
How to book: Book the ‘Escape 24’ package at Hyatt online by 11 October. The package includes a 24-hour stay from check-in time; and a choice from the following benefits: HK$1,000 hotel credit per night for spa and dining, a dining experience for two at one of the hotel’s specialty restaurants (Grissini, One Harbour Road, The Grill, or Tiffin), and more.
The ‘Escape 24’ package itself is valid till end November 2020.
Price: From HK$2,180 per room per night.

Rosewood Hong Kong
As the crowning jewel of Kowloon’s skyline since opening last year, the pet-friendly Rosewood Hong Kong commands some of the best views over Victoria Harbour. If you’re looking for a well-rounded staycation that touches equally upon indulgence and relaxation, this is it.
Among highlights such as its Tony Chi-designed interiors and acclaimed dining hotspots, Rosewood Hong Kong has also made a name for itself with the distinguished wellness offerings at Asaya. The urban wellness destination offers programmes and treatments that go beyond just opulent facials and massages — from expressive arts therapy to singing bowl meditation, genetic analysis to posture correction, not to mention personal coaching for diet and exercise — all of which are available at a discounted rate for Asia Miles member guests.
Guests can also sign up for a complimentary Asaya Wellness Class, which includes a daily selection of yoga, pilates, TRX, sculpting and cardio classes at the spacious Asaya Harbour Studio. After working up an appetite, the numerous attractive dining options at Rosewood and K11 Musea should satisfy even the pickiest of gourmands. A strong nightcap at Darkside — serenaded by its regular roster of live band performances — is a must.
Asia Miles Exclusive: Asia Miles members booking the ‘Asia Miles x Victoria Dockside Essential Staycation’ get 1,500 Asia Miles on their booking with a complimentary room upgrade.
Members will also get to indulge in a complimentary aperitivo spread for two at Bayfare Social (available daily at 3–4:30pm), which includes a charcuterie board, a side of babaganoush, a pan of paella and a carafe of sangria.
