From safari to outer space — this themed hotel has it all!
There are hotels with rooms designed for children. And then there is Hong Kong Gold Coast Hotel, that brings out the kid in every parent.
Located in Tuen Mun and about 30 minutes by car from the airport, this beachfront property offers spacious guestrooms that you don’t usually associate Hong Kong hotels with.
My eyes widened as I checked into its Safari-themed family room with my four-year-old son.
Just look at that Jeep-styled, king-size bed “parked” under a 3-D tree. Instead of bedside tables and lamps, I found tree logs, old-fashioned suitcases and camping lanterns.

And I didn’t even have to share my cool Jeep bed with my son. He had his own tent bed, with a Cloud B Twilight Ladybug by his side. The constellation night light transformed our room into a starry night sky, completing the safari camp experience.
This is one of six themed family rooms launched last year by this hotel. The others are equally amazing!
Dark and mysterious, the Outer Space-themed room might just give you a glimpse of life as an astronaut.
You’ll sleep within a giant crater with a spacesuit duvet cover over you, while your kid will be thrilled to get his own rocket bed.
You can both take turns to use the telescope and microscope, as well.
Or why not book the Hong Kong Tram-themed room (pictured, above) and immerse yourself in the city?
Bustling street-life scenes adorn the walls and your kid gets to sleep in a tram bed.
If your little one dreams of sailing on the seven seas, you must stay in the Pirate-themed room.
The blue carpet evokes sparkling waves, while wooden barrels and chests take the place of cabinets and tables. There is even a ship’s steering wheel that actually spins.
Did I also mention that all the bathrooms follow through with the respective themes?
The Princess-themed room’s bathtub is adorned with pink shower curtains fit for young royalty.
I love that most of the bathrooms are fitted with two sinks – one of which is at child’s level – and provide a potty ring. How thoughtful!
Rates for a themed-room package starts from HK$2,488 (without balcony) per night and HK$2,788 (with balcony) for two adults and one child.
It includes a breakfast buffet, a themed afternoon tea set, playtime at the Adventure Zone, and shuttle bus services to various parts of Hong Kong. Top up HK$450 per additional kid.
