Take the Porsche 911 Carrera S for a spin around Hong Kong with this luxury staycation package.
This is certainly no ordinary staycay. The Porsche x Landmark Staycation offers guests the rare opportunity to take the wheel of the brand’s three newest sports car models, including the Porsche 911 Carrera S.
You can enjoy an exclusive three-hour drive through Hong Kong; cruising relaxedly along the highway or taking on the challenging and steep Route Twisk between Tseun Wan and Pat Heung.
You won’t end up feeling peckish on the road either, as the package includes a picnic hamper filled with sumptuous delicacies, created by two-Michelin Star Chef Richard Ekkebus of Amber.

FLOOR IT & BE FLOORED
When you return from your drive, a pampering stay awaits in Landmark Hotel, where you will discover the meaning of luxury in the L600 Deluxe Room — or a higher category if you booked one.
Be immersed in ultimate indulgence with one of the hotel’s new signature bath experiences, named “Energising”, “Cocktail” and “Romance”. These specially drawn baths are prepared in a 2m-wide bathtub in your en-suite bathroom.
If you’re still craving a relaxing massage after this, head to the hotel’s acclaimed Oriental Spa, to which you will have unlimited complimentary access with this package.
On top of that, guests will also receive HK$1,000 ($175) in either spa or dining credits per room, daily set breakfast at Amber or buffet breakfast at MO Bar, Internet access, late check-out at 4pm and a special gift from Porsche to seal the sweet deal.
Guests who book the L900 Landmark Suite can stand to win a trip to the Porsche Snow Force driving program in Inner Mongolia, China.
