Worldhotels has welcomed its 100th affiliate in
The deluxe resort and convention hotel, which
does not yet have a name, is on the
waterfront of Discovery Bay on Lantau Island.
The resort, scheduled to open this summer,
is being developed by Hong Kong Resort Company Limited.
“As the 100th member of Worldhotels’
fast-growing Asia Pacific portfolio, the new resort hotel is a
welcome alternative to Hong Kong’s city hotels – in a relaxed
getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city, yet with
remarkably quick and convenient access,” said Roland Jegge,
Worldhotels Asia-Pacific Vice President.
325 rooms and suites, the property is set to offer a relaxing escape from
the frenetic pace of Hong Kong.
Designed as a
resort hotel for leisure, meetings and events, it is just 25
minutes from Hong Kong’s Central business district by high speed
deluxe ferry, and 30 minutes from Hong Kong International Airport
and Asia World Expo.
It is also
just 20 minutes from Sunny Bay and Tung Chung MTR stations –
providing convenient access to nearby tourist attractions like Hong Kong Disneyland, Ngong Ping 360 cable car to
Lantau’s outdoor seated Giant bronze Buddha, Po Lin Monastery, as well as the quaint, traditional fishing community of
Tai O village.
The resort is likely to
become a popular wedding destination – with a seaside wedding
chapel and poolside wedding gazebo, complete with a ballroom that
could cater banquets for almost 600 guests.
Recreational facilities extend from an outdoor
swimming pool, health club and Spa Botanica, to a
kids outdoor playground. Nearby guests can find a 27-hole golf
course and The Bounty, a European tall ship for cruises and
The hotel’s all-day signature restaurant
offers international and Asian cuisine with relaxed
outdoor seating alongside a lounge and bar, both offering ocean views.
Other dining options are
available along the beach to Discovery Bay Pier, with an al fresco
seaside dining area offering a choice of around 20 restaurants.
