Treat the kids to a Hong Kong holiday
Need a break from the summer break? The long school holidays can take some filling and a change of scene – while not having to step on a plane – is sometimes just what the doctor ordered. Whisk the family away for a weekend of fun and frolics, without a check-in desk in sight

Plus, the hotel offers a fun room set-up for younger guests, including an in-suite tent filled with toys, welcome gifts, mini bathrobes, slippers, backpack and toothbrush. And encouraging kids away from the tech is the hotel’s complimentary Kids Book, filled with locally-inspired activities, colouring sheets and a Hong Kong travel map.
The Suite Dreams package is available until December 29 (blackout dates apply) and requests for the in-suite tent set-up must be made in advance of your stay.

Le Meridien Cyberport has launched Happy Child, Happy Family, a family-oriented package in Hong Kong’s leafy southside district.
Le Meridien is located in Cyberport, just at the point where the concrete starts to give way to the greener suburbs. It’s close enough to Central to be considered an ‘urban’ resort, but far enough away to make it feel like you’ve escaped the crowds.
The hotel also benefits from grassy lawns and parks that were built to enhance the neighbouring Cyberport office and retail complex – perfect for kids to play on. And if little legs need to be stretched further, Cyberport Waterside Park is just a short stroll away.
The family-friendly Happy Child, Happy Family staycation package includes one night’s accommodation in a Smart Room with a fun tent set-up and surprise welcome package, breakfast buffet, late check-out until 2pm and kids under 12 years eat free when they dine at Prompt.
