Holiday Issue 2019

Feb19007 Relax and Unwind at Silvermine Beach Resort Silvermine Beach Resort offers a natural respite for those that want a distraction from Hong Kong’s bustling urbanism. Following their recognition as the ‘Most Idyllic Luxury Retreat in Hong Kong’ in the 2019 Global Luxury Hotel & Spa Awards programme, we took a closer look at the resort to find out how they have forged such a remarkable reputation in the state, despite significant competition. Hong Kong brings to mind stunning cityscapes, neon lights, bustling markets, and a picturesque harbour. Yet, despite its status as one of the world’s most colourful – and advanced- metropolises, Hong Kong is more than the sum of its skyscrapers. It is also home to outstanding natural beauty: all rolling hills, endless fields and vast mountains. In the small town of Mui Wo, on the eastern coast of Lantau Island, lies Silvermine Beach Resort, nestled just on the edge of Silvermine Bay. Surrounded on all sides by verdant greenery and soft aquamarine waters – yet still close to popular tourist draws like the Tian Tian Buddha and Hong Kong Disneyland – Silvermine Beach Resort is in a perfect location, offering a compromise between access to urban amenities and breath-taking natural vistas. “We work hard as a team to deliver great service to our customers and create a comfortable resort environment for our guests’ enjoyment.” Of course, the resort’s offerings don’t just stop at its location, it has also dedicated itself to providing a memorable experience through exceptional, personal hospitality, top-tier services and wonderful facilities. From a gym, swimming pool, sauna and spa to archery and kayaking, Silvermine Beach Resort has plenty to offer. Here the resort’s location proves a draw for those that want to explore beyond the beachfront, with many of Hong Kong’s cultural treasures close by: Po Lin Monastery, Tai O fishing village and Lantau South Country Park being particular highlights. Of note, Silvermine Beach Resort has gone one step further in its mission to help preserve the natural beauty that surrounds it by adopting ‘green initiatives’ that include expansive eco-reforms. From using more environmentally-friendly chiller systems, to utilisation a heat recovery module, it is clear that Silvermine has gone above and beyond – echoing the greater global movement towards sustainable tourism. But all of this barely scratches the surface when it comes to why Silvermine Beach Resort remains an ardent favourite. It combines attentive, friendly staff, with a relaxed, laid back atmosphere, fantastic food, and a location that is simply idyllic. The ideal place to unwind from the stresses of life.
