You might be wondering, what can you get out of a hotel staycation when things you’d normally enjoy at the property: the spa, the restaurants and the bars have had to close down because of the pandemic? The truth is, yes, you will be missing out on some things. But what we’ve come to discover is that a staycation during a pandemic is a whole new experience with a lot of its own perks too. Here are just a few things we loved about the St. Regis staycation.
A Festive Welcome
The St. Regis Hong Kong, already a cosy and intimate setting, is completely transformed with dazzling festive decorations all around. There are fun little activations all around as well. From 23rd to 26th December, rooms are all decorated with Christmas stockings and Santa-costumed teddy bears that you can bring home. You’ll also find Santa’s postbox in The Great Room. Guests can request for a Christmas postcard at the reception desk and have their wishes delivered to North Pole directly, no postage required.

Having butler service is already a great luxury in any situation, but what they can do for you when you’re staying in your suite for the majority of your stay is suddenly so much more apparent.
Forget in-room Nespresso coffee. Did you know you could get all kinds of coffee and freshly brewed tea delivered to you at all hours? The butler team can be easily accessed via WhatsApp too, by scanning a code that comes with your room card.
Dining in-room was a surprisingly enjoyable affair, and an option you probably would not have considered prior to these new measures. St. Regis has prepared a special Festive Afternoon Tea set made for in-room dining, and its two Michelin-starred restaurants, L’Envol and Rùn, are also serving special menus to be served in-room. A culinary highlight of the St. Regis Staycation was definitely the Hokkaido sea urchin with gamberoni prawn and crunchy fennel, as was the tender seared A3 Kagoshima beef tenderloin with heart-shaped “pommes souffles” and caper jus. Each course is served separately — the butler team has timed it perfectly so your food remains hot every time they knock on your door. Wine pairings are available too if you so desire.
An Evening Treat
And last but not least, end the night with a soothing soak in the bath. Using 001 Skincare London, a line of British natural skincare created by royalty facialist Ada Ooi, the butler will draw up a bath for you at your desired time and leave you to enjoy for as long as you want.
The one-night staycation package at the St. Regis Suite includes:
One night “Stay & Dine” staycation package (inclusive of St. Regis Suite, 2 breakfasts at Rùn and a choice between an in-room Afternoon Tea or a 3-course set dinner menu at The Drawing Room or in-room with a glass of red or white wine each for two pax); One 001 Skincare London aroma oil bubble bath experience.
St. Regis staycation is valid from now until March 2021, and can be redeemed on Sundays to Thursdays only.
