For those looking for an Ocean Park hotel, there is still no option for staying within the park itself like at Hong Kong Disneyland; however, there are a few options you can consider which are very convenient to Ocean Park either within walking distance to the park and/or a free shuttle that will whisk you to the roller coasters and world-class aquariums in minutes.
There are advantages and disadvantages of staying in this area, if you are likely to spend most of your time in the city, keep in mind that getting to and from Ocean Park and Admiralty/Central takes about 30 minutes by bus.
The MTR South Island Line which would connect you to the city in 4 minutes is not expected to be completed until late 2016 or early 2017, so that is not an option at the moment.
On the plus side, besides the obvious convenience to the Pandas, Roller Coasters and Aquariums...
In the works is a six-storey 495-room Ocean Park Marriott Hotel expected for 2017, which will be located at the resort's main entrance. A central courtyard will include a themed lagoon, children's play area and outdoor dining.
Another hotel to be built in the Summit side of Tai Shue Wan, The Fullerton Hotel @ Ocean Park, is expected to break ground in 2017 and be completed and opened to the public in 2020. This full-scale resort will complement the forthcoming Water World, a humongous Water Park Complex which will feature indoor and outdoor facilities, man-made beaches, multiple water slides and wave pools, entertainment stages, and the world's longest leisure river.
Together with the opening of the MTR South Island Line, there is much to look forward to as Ocean Park keeps transforming itself, but for now, visitors wishing to stay near the park, will have to do with these options:
With a trendy retro style, "the iconic new Ovolo is a masterpiece of contemporary art and industrial edge in Hong Kong's first warehouse conversion hotel."
Rooms are small but what they lack in size, they make up with plenty of ammenities... really, this hotel has perks galore, from free happy hours to apple TVs...
And the location? Just a short walk to Ocean Park.
Address: 64 Wong Chuk Hang Road
A bit further up the road from Ovolo, and perhaps a bit too much to walk to Ocean Park, you find L'Hotel Island South.
The hotel has a free shuttle every 30 minutes with stops at the park and Hong Kong Station.
Rooms are larger for Hong Kong standards and there are family rooms available that accomodate four.
Address: 55 Wong Chuk Hang Road
Consider an apartment or vacation rental near Ocean Park. This is a great option for families or larger groups if you are staying for a few nights. It is quite convenient having a little extra space and a kitchen for quick meals or snacks and it can also save you some money.
How to look for vacation rentals near Ocean Park?
The little green dots represent all rentals available for your dates. If none are available near the park, consider also the areas near Happy Valley or Wanchai which are convenient to Ocean Park and also to the center of the city.
