Book a Staycation
Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday this year, which makes it the perfect occasion to book a staycation. Check into
W Hong Kong for some alone time with your lover with two room packages available: “Love Rules” includes a W Fantasy Pack complete with flirty toys, while “Dare to be Fabulous” offers heart-warming welcome amenities to set the mood. Starting from $2,800 + 10 percent for room and suite packages. 1 Austin Rd. West, West Kowloon, 3717-2798.
Thinking of popping the question on the big night but haven’t the faintest clue how to do it? Morton’s has you covered with its special “Proposal Package”: Start the night with a romantic candlelit 3-course dinner, then get down on one knee in a Premium Harbor View Suite at The Sheraton Hotel, with the words “Will U Marry Me” written in balloons as your backdrop. We say YES!
$9,999 for two. 4/F, The Sheraton Hotel Hong Kong,
20 Nathan Rd., Tsim Sha Tsui, 2732-2343.
Treat yourself and your S.O. this Valentine’s Day with some much-deserved pampering at Melo Spa at Hyatt Regency Hong Kong Sha Tin. Those with a sweet tooth, don’t miss their new cocoa body scrub: a chocolatey scrub to remove dead skin, followed by a nourishing cocoa body massage for some deep relaxation. With that chocolatey smell lingering long after the treatment, we dare you to keep your hands off each other…
$1,399 per person. 5/F, Hyatt Regency Hong Kong Sha Tin, 18 Chak Cheung St., Sha Tin, 3723-7684.
Netflix & Chill
So you’re running on pennies after the CNY holidays, and a fancy night out is a bit outside the budget... never fear, because Netflix is here! With subscription plans starting as low as $63 per month, it’s possible to have that V-Day in you always wanted—plus, you’ll have total privacy when things start to get hot and heavy. Order a gourmet meal with Deliveroo.hk, sit back and relax with a romantic movie. Our suggestion: 1953 Audrey Hepburn classic “Roman Holiday.”
Meet the Mouse
Put on your cutest Mickey and Minnie matching outfits and go for a day out at Hong Kong Disneyland. On this loveydovey occasion, the theme park is rolling out a collection of “his and hers” keepsakes for all Disney-lovers, as well as some new live shows to celebrate their 10th anniversary (double happiness!). And of course, you get to meet and greet the mousey power couple in person…
