Ocean Park Hong Kong transforms into Marriott Hotel – the country’s first-ever urban resort hotel
Ocean Park Hong Kong has now evolved into a premier international resort destination with the grand opening of Hong Kong Ocean Park Marriott Hotel, offering guests a unique one‐stop edutainment experience.
Located at Ocean Park, the new Hong Kong Ocean Park Marriott Hotel is the city’s first‐ever urban resort hotel just minutes away from the heart of the city. Families can take advantage of the upcoming public holidays in Singapore – Good Friday (19 April) and Labour Day (1 May) – to be among the first to experience the new hotel at Ocean Park Hong Kong and the fun‐filled adventure during the Park’s Animal Discovery Fest.
Hong Kong Ocean Park Marriott Hotel is made up of three architecturally iconic towers: Pier Wing, Club Wing, and Marina Wing offering a total of 471 contemporary rooms and suites, including 14 themed rooms featuring the Park’s adorable mascots Whiskers, Bao Bao, and Redd.
Animal Discovery Fest (19 April to 1 May)
Headlining this year’s festival is Meet the Walrus, the all‐new, limited‐time Get Closer to the Animal programme in which guests can observe the gigantic, moustachioed creature up‐close, feel their skin, feed it and get a snapshot to capture the remarkable encounter.
13 other different interactive animal workshops and backstage explorer tours will also be available, including adorable moments with kinkajou, steppe eagle, tours to back‐of‐house facilities at The Grand Aquarium and Shark Mystique.
Ocean Park Hong Kong’s veterinary team will also host a guided tour during the inaugural open house of the Park’s veterinary centre to share knowledge about animals spanning the sky, land and sea, as well as their work in animal care and conservation.
Taste the Best of Hong Kong’s Street Food
Foodies can purchase the Admission Ticket Combo with “Old Hong Kong Street Food Tasting Pass” at HK$480 (originally worth HK$593) and savour the all‐time favourite local street snacks such as egg puffs and pan‐fried dumplings from Michelin‐recommended eateries Mammy Pancake and Wing Lai Yuen; Hong Kong’s first sustainable fish balls, as well as Hong Kong‐style milk tea from KamCha.
Kids Discovery Club Package (19 – 28 April)
For a limited time, parents can enrol their kids into a three‐hour educational activity where they will visit animal exhibits with the Park’s education ambassadors to learn about marine conservation in a fun-filled way.
