In Hong Kong for the holidays? There’s no shortage of festive staycations for you to enjoy this December. From unforgettable getaways in the heart of Central to wintry Tsim Sha Tsui harbour stays, these are the best hotels to have yourself a merry little five-star staycation this Christmas.
Dreaming of a white Christmas? Be transported to the slopes of Switzerland at the Island Shangri-La, where you can enjoy an immersive experience in the lobby’s four candlelit Swiss chalets. Sample a traditional Swiss cheese (or chocolate) fondue, roasted chestnuts and a raclette grill alongside a steaming hot chocolate or mulled wine, or opt for a festive lunch, dinner or afternoon tea.
The Christmas Cheer Staycation is filled with magical festive activities for all the family. Enjoy a breakfast feast with everyone, grab a photo with Santa Claus in his Sweet Shop, and delight in a festive afternoon tea to-go. You’ll also receive wonderful gifts such as Christmas stockings and a children’s activity pack.
Get in the festive spirit with The Murray’s Christmas Room Package. You’ll be welcomed with a warming glass of mulled wine upon arrival, and will receive HK$1,500 worth of hotel credits to spend on your choice of hotel restaurants, in-room dining or The Murray, Hong Kong booth at the Christmas Market, where you can find lifestyle, food and festive products in The Arches from 19 to 22 December.
Wake up and unwrap your Christmas gift before fuelling up at breakfast for the big day ahead: a meet-and-greet with Santa Claus at the Holiday Grotto awaits. The kids can enjoy themselves in the children’s playroom, slime room or game arcade while you sit by a toasty heater in the Garden Lounge or marvel at the panoramic views of Hong Kong at Popinjays.
Revel in the magic of Christmas at The Peninsula Hong Kong , where an enchanting story about a travelling reindeer awaits you.

The Whimsical Festive Voyage Staycation whisks you back in time to Grand Salisbury Station, a railway-themed installation on the first floor of the hotel, which has been turned into a winter wonderland.
