Hotel quarantine is mostly devoid of service, but Ovolo Hotels want to challenge that by committing to a 14-day royal treatment that you won’t forget!
Education Minister Lawrence Wong said that hotel isolation “is not an indulgence” when he addressed the public during the height of the COVID-19 outbreak. Some people who have been through hotel quarantine measures have reported that this is the case, where housekeeping services are non-existent and food is less than savoury. 😳
Why does this have to be the case though? That’s exactly what Ovolo Hotels in Hong Kong asked themselves, and hence they’ve decided to launch a Quarantine Concierge Service, where its hotel staff will attend to your needs to their best ability.
We’re talking round-the-clock concierge that provides free daily hotel breakfasts, barista coffee, regular supply of snacks, alcohol, and even to run errands for you. Plus, each room is kitted with fitness gears like a yoga mat, gliders, and resistance bands to get you in shape for indulging in all those calories. Did we also mention Apple TV and Alexa? You might even call it “quarantine for a king”.
Why Should I Care About Quarantine Concierge Service If I Can’t Even Travel?
You’re right, but if it’s any consolation, Singapore has just resumed travel with some countries like Japan, South Korea, and Malaysia. There have been reports of travel resumption to Hong Kong, and the moment this opens up, I think that Ovolo Hotels might just be fully booked for those who need to serve quarantine upon entry. 😜
What’s so Special About The Quarantine Concierge Service at Ovolo Hotels?
The Quarantine Concierge Service is available at both of their hotels in Hong Kong – Ovolo Central and Ovolo Southside. This service entitles you to a whopping 14 days of daily complimentary perks that include F&B, entertainment, and more:
• Free breakfast and barista-made coffee every morning
• Free minibar snacks and drinks replenished daily
• Free alcoholic beverages during daily Happy Hour
• Free HKD$1,000 (~S$175) bonus F&B credits
• Free bottle of Cava to celebrate the end of your quarantine
Entertainment & Activities 🥳
• Unlimited premium Wi-Fi, Apple TV, and Alexa
• Fitness kit: yoga mat, glider, and resistance bands
• Mindfulness kit: adult colouring books, brain teasers, playing cards, and a leafy green plant
• Round-the-clock quarantine concierge
• Daily essentials run to pick up anything from SIM card to groceries
• 20% off laundry
The Ovolo Hotels’ team also rewards you for staying active during the quarantine. If you manage to make 10,000 steps a day doing various exercises, they’ll send you a free cold-pressed juice! 🍎
It’s not as hard as it seems. A 30-minute HIIT workout is about 4,000 steps, and if you’re out of ideas as to which workouts to do, might I point you towards these free YouTube workout channels, online fitness programs, and best bodyweight exercises?
How Much is The Stay at Ovolo Hotels with Quarantine Concierge?
Of course, this royal treatment comes at a price. It’s not as expensive as you think it is though, for everything you get, the price starts at HKD$1,617 (~S$285) a night. This is especially important because the food and services per day add up, and it seems to be a pretty good deal.
Ovolo Hotels also pride itself on their OC/DC – Obsessive Commitment to Deep Cleaning – to implement high standards of hygiene in the rooms and compound. If you ever find yourself needing to quarantine in Hong Kong, consider treating yourself for 14 days. 😏
