    This ten acre resort offers sea views from its well-equipped rooms. The accommodation complex is unlovely from outside but recreation facilities include pool, pitch-and- putt golf course, tennis courts and running track.

  2. The Warwick

    A cheap alternative to city living, magical Cheung Chau’s only major hotel offers fine sea views next to good beaches with windsurf and kayak hire. Great coastal walks are around the headland. Furnishings are nothing special, and the exterior is 60s municipal.

    An excellent budget option for the adventurous, this lovely and friendly hostel sits atop Mount Butler at the western edge of Hong Kong Island. Take a taxi there.

  5. Concerto Inn

    Overlooking the Pearl River on sleepy Shamian Island, this large but lovely hotel is the place to find peace in Guang-zhou.
