Staycations have been the best way for Hong Kongers trapped amidst travel restrictions preventing overseas trips to unwind during vacation time and take a break from the hustle of our busy Hong Kong. For a real escape with your loved one, friends and families, pick these five themed hotels to get that escape to another world on your next staycation.
Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel
A listicle on themed hotels should never miss Lantau Island’s magical resort park, with the 400-room Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel bringing guests along a mystical adventure with Mickey Mouse and co. With stately accommodations and modern amenities, the architectural marvel can be seen brightly lit miles beyond the seaside resort.
Stepping into Victorian-styled hotel, one may feel like you are entering the halls of an old European castle, with bedrooms and fit for princes and princesses would feel like entering a castle. The hotel offers activities that immerse people in the fantasy world, including the Storybook Playroom and Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.

All rooms include two double beds, catering to couples, friends and larger families. The hotel is best accessible from the Ocean Park MTR and located only a five-minute from Ocean Park’s main entrance and ticketing booth for an easy morning fun retreat.
