Where To Stay Near Ocean Park, Hong Kong

Parents, there is a really cool hotel near Ocean Park in Hong Kong! Ovolo Southside in Aberdeen is only 10 minutes walking distance from one of the most famous family attractions in Hong Kong (second to Disneyland, in my opinion).

It’s a relatively new and super stylish hotel filled with contemporary art on its wall and halls.

What’s surprising is how green your room views are which isn’t standard for most Hong Kong hotels. If you book here, you’re in for a visual treat. Mountain views are obviously my thing!

We stayed in the long loft room which is the most spacious room they have. There is a queen sized bed and a pull out sofa-bed for the kids. What I love is the floor to ceiling windows which brings in the most natural light.

Love, love, love working with that view! ovolo southside aberdeen hotel hong kong room view

A plus is that their mini-bar is free for guests to enjoy and replenished daily! Yay! Seriously, which other hotel does that?!

Now, their bathroom has got the BEST bath and body essentials I have ever encountered since my traveling life!

Biology Skin Care essentials are free from parabens, SLS, silicone, mineral oil,  synthetic fragrance, artificial colors, formaldehyde and other more nasties found in most other natural bath and body products. They’re not only super safe, but also, smells divine and really moisturizing to the skin which is definitely a real need when you travel.

There is free breakfast buffet, of course!

Aside from their all-day coffee and snacks…

another superb highlight is their free happy hour. I know, I know, why am I even mentioning it in a family-friendly travel blog like mine? Because, let’s be honest – we parents drink alcohol sometimes for our sanity (well, maybe some of you do ALL the time! LOL!)

They’ve got juices and snacks too for the kiddies! I hear that the happy hour menu changes per day?

Yes, lollipops – I allowed, just this once!

There is a billiards table which you can turn into a lesson (if you homeschool or unschool) on geometry!

For those wanting to release , their gym is open 24 hours. My family used it to exhaust the excess energy of the kids. You might use this fab idea for yours as well!

For more fantastic views, head up to Above, Ovolo’s roof-top bar. We sneaked in during the day so I could have a look with my kids. Naw, wouldn’t go there at night. Hands-on-mom over here!

If I return without kids, will definitely take friends for a drink or two at one of the prettiest rooftop bars I have seen!

Now for slow travelers, self- laundry is heaven-sent! I try my best to pack light so having the option to do laundry was just an incredible add on in my opinion!

This is my daughter taking a peak at Ocean Park from our long loft room. Yes, you can actually see it from there!
