It’s been a couple of years of unhelped turmoil for Hong Kong’s well-loved flagship theme park, Ocean Park. The teasing ups and downs of closures have resulted from both political and COVID-19 factors—a situation which the park could not foresee. So while we hope that, like with all businesses, 2021 will take a turn for the better, we’d like to make one thing straight—Hong Kong Ocean Park Marriott Hotel continues to run, despite the park closure. The family-friendly resort, in fact, is very self-sufficient—featuring facilities from the expansive swimming pool to the heavenly spa.
On a recent trip to the themed hotel, we rediscovered a hidden gem with plenty to offer. Although Ocean Park was unfortunately on one of its closed periods during our visit, the Hong Kong Ocean Park Marriott Hotel is an urban respite that welcomes all—families, friends, children, dogs—to experience an array of dining, leisure and comfortable accommodation away from city crowds. We visited the Wong Chuk Hang hotel for a two-night stay during the festive period.
