Definitely worthwhile to look into the airport lounges. Depending on your budget, some offer very comfortable seating, where you can even take a nap, a hot shower, free snacks and beverages, and even a meal. The lounge I used had facilities equivalent to a luxury hotel. Certain credit cards give you benefits and discounts in some of the lounges, but they ...

Consider going to Macau: It seems that the risk the OP is mentioning for not leaving Hong Kong Airport is the 2019 Hong Kong protests. While that risk is in reality pretty close to none, if you still do not wish to enter Hong Kong, then you can instead go to Macau.

Private “relaxation cabins” for single passengers that can rented in blocks of 1 – 6 ...

There are more options of restaurants etc. (at generally better prices) if you pass through security and immigration. Only passengers can enter the terminal at the moment (documents and tickets are checked outside the terminal building) so there is very little chance of disruption within the terminal buildings. You’re a few days too early to see Lion King ...

Regal Airport Hotel bills itself as a transit hotel but it is actually landside, so you do need to clear immigration to reach it (and thus you also need to fill out and bring a printed copy of your Pre-Arrival Registration). The hotel can be reached by a covered walkway from the Terminal 1 arrivals hall after you go through the customs channel. AFAIK there ...
