Disneyland may have ruled the theme park roost for a while, but Ocean Park is determined to change that, starting with the launch of the Hong Kong Ocean Park Marriott Hotel in October. Its over-400 rooms offer views of the lagoon and direct access to the brand new water park development, Tai Shue Wan Water World, set to open in 2019. The latter will be the city’s first “year-round, all-weather” water park offering indoor and outdoor attractions, along with dining and retail outlets. For now, guests at the hotel can look forward to a 16m-high aquarium in the lobby and interactive seafood stations at the Marina Café.
