Staycations don't get better than this. The Landmark Mandarin Oriental has really hit the spot this time with the introduction of its incredible new urban getaway package with Porsche.
Launched to mark the arrival of Porsche's new line of cars for 2016, the exclusive experience is only available for a limited time, on weekends and public holidays from June 17 to December 31, 2016. The package starts from HK$6,800 for a one night stay in the redesigned L600 Deluxe Room (by award-winning interior designer Joyce Wang), and more if you choose to stay at the L900 Landmark Suite - but trust us, the suite is sublime.
If you thought a staycation meant a lie-in in the suite and hours spent in the Oriental Spa, you're only partly right. While guests will get to enjoy HK$1,000 spending credit on dining or at the spa during the stay, plus complimentary non-alcoholic drinks from the minibar, two beers, and local gourmet treats served in-room, the real highlight is the chance to test drive one of three brand new Porsche sports cars, including the highly anticipated 911 Carrera S.
Guests unsure about where to drive to for three hours can choose among suggested routes, including a gentle relaxing cruise to the airport and back, a meandering route to beautiful Shek O, or the dynamic and challenging Route Twisk through the New Territories of Hong Kong.
Schedule your test drive for early morning, because the ride comes with a picnic hamper prepared by none other than Richard Ekkebus from the hotel's two-Michelin-starred restaurant Amber, filled with perfect brunch treats like a full cheese platter, Dehesa pure Patanegra de Bellota D.O.P. ham aged for 56 months and country pâté with wild mushrooms and foie gras.
What's more, the hotel will set up its new in-room Bath Experience for you in their signature seven-foot round bathtub. Choose the Morning experience for a rejuvenating citrus and lavender bath, which comes with a healthy fruit basket and cleansing moisturiser for the perfect start into the day; but we highly recommend the Cocktail or Romance experience, which comes with dimmed lights, relaxing music, and signature cocktails or a half bottle of champagne.
The luxury experience does not end at check out. Guests who booked the L900 Landmark Suite can win a chance to join the Porsche Snow Force in Inner Mongolia in 2017. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity allows winning guests to test Porsche's bulletproof reputation on a frozen lake in minus-35 degree temperatures, on up to eight dynamic race tracks carved out of the icy lake.
Surprise your father with the ultimate getaway? We can't find another more ideal gift, with the staycation offer launching just in time for Father's Day celebrations.
