With their prime locations and convenient facilities, the Onyx Hospitality Group hotel brands Amari and OZO are inviting shoppers to embark on retail vacations in Bangkok, Hong Kong and Johor Bahru, Malaysia.
The Malaysia Mega Sale Shopping Carnival has just started and continues right through August, offering events and promotions that will keep even the most avid shopping enthusiasts on their toes.
Centrally located in the city’s business district, the Amari Johor Bahru provides easy access to the shops at Komtar JBCC and City Square, both just a short walk from the hotel.
Parents can focus on bargain hunting knowing that the kids are well taken care of and are having loads of fun at the Angry Birds Activity Park.
After returning to the hotel and with shopping bags off-loaded, enjoy a refreshing treatment at the Breeze Spa or take a quick dip in the outdoor pool.
Before leaving town, visit the Johor Premium Outlet, where luxury and boutique items can be found at discounted prices.
To add to the big savings, the Great Escape package on offer at the Amari Johor Bahru includes two nights’ stay in a superior king room, roundtrip transfers to the Premium Outlet and a soothing head-and-shoulder Breeze Spa massage.
All this year, rates start at 213 ringgit (Bt1,748) per night. Book a stay at www.Amari.com/johor-bahru.
Located in the heart of Hong Kong’s shopping paradise, the OZO Wesley Hong Kong is the perfect base with a seamless blend of comfort and convenience, ideal for visitors to the summer sale running until August 31.
Just a few steps from the hotel, guests can kick off at Pacific Place, one of the most popular shopping malls in town. To find more red-sale tags, hop on the MTR at nearby Wan Chai station towards Causeway Bay and Times Square, where more mega-shopping complexes are located.
To start the next day fresh and recharged for more bargain hunting, guests can be assured of a great sleep thanks to the comfy beds, noise-free surroundings and blackout curtains.
Rates start at HK$921 (Bt3,898). Learn more at www.OzoHotels.com/wesley-hongkong.
For the latest looks at affordable prices, the popular Platinum Fashion Mall is just across the street from the Amari Watergate Bangkok. Continue the shopping bliss at Central World and Gaysorn Village, both connected by the elevated and sheltered Sky Walk, and enjoy discounts on local designs and international brands.
After a day of retail therapy, refuel at the Asian street-market-inspired Amaya Food Gallery, which takes guests on a journey through the colours and rhythms of Asia with a variety of street-food favourites.
The Amari Watergate Bangkok’s Great Escape package offers a two-night stay in a Deluxe King room and a Bt1,000 gift card for happy spending at Central World. Enjoy more with 30-per-cent off at the Food Gallery and get easy access from the hotel to Suvarnabhumi or Don Mueang airport with complimentary one-way airport transfer by Toyota Camry.
