The moment I felt giddy over excitement with my trip was the moment I enter my hotel. It does more than the busy airport that bring me down with the noise and freezing cold air-cond.
It was my fourth time travel to Hong Kong. I wasn’t interested to view most of the travel attraction recommended by most of the website or traveling book. So I picked Lantau Island, although Lantau Island wasn’t new to me, but Discovery Bay in Lantau is a new developed serene resort. Unlike most of the hectic places in Hong Kong, Discovery Bay is a peaceful, and relaxing slow life oasis residential area that has attracted a lot of western people.
It wasn’t too difficult to get to Auberge Discovery Bay, where the hotel has provided shuttle service from a few points (note: no private car is allowed to enter Discovery Bay). The first moment the bus driving into Dicovery Bay, we have already hallucinating we were travelling in European country.
As soon as we arrived in the hotel, bell boy and the customer service team welcome us with their warm smile. After a few hours long of flight, all we wanted was a pretty smiles and beautiful yet comfy room to recharge.
Much to our surprise, the room was just amazing. We can’t imagine that we would sleep, eat and watching TV with the marvelous sea view as our companion, in HONG KONG! !
If you have ever watched Hong Kong drama, those “sipping wine on the terrace while enjoying the stunning sea view” will only happened on million/billionaire. But in Auberge Discovery Bay, you could do it anytime, anywhere!!
Besides from the seaview, the super comfortable bed (which could cure your sleepless night easily) the design of the dressing table was another added value to the stay. I used to wake up earlier than my mate to dress up and put on makeup, and the light from the toilet or the dressing table would be an annoyance to him. Credit to the interior designers, they has solved the problem and giving my mate a better sleep for few days.
Every evening, there will be a turndown service (a.k.a. evening service) where the hotel staff will come into your room, turn down a corner of the blankets to make the bed look inviting and that much more restful, draws the curtains, puts out your bedroom slippers, prepare water by your bedside, tidies up the room a little, tops up your toiletries, folds the end of the toilet paper roll into a little triangle, and sometimes changes your bathroom towels.
Of cause, they have provided almost everything that you might needed in the room, like: kettle, hair dryer, cup & glass, tea & coffee, towels, grooming kit, safety, iron..etc. And the green shuttle bus I mentioned earlier on, they could send you to Sunny Bay, Disneyland, Tung Chung, Wan Chai, Kowloon and Central.
I seldom have the time to go for gym during trip, but I would wanted to go if I were on VACATION. Work out in Auberge Discovery Bay was kind of joyous, not to mention the equipment they have and the stunning seaview that you will running into, they provided unlimited towels in the gym and pretty night scene with a DJ playing misic as the background, amazing?? Yes, indeed!
To be honest, the moment I get into my room, I have the though to just chillax for the 3 days 2 nights. So we decided to forget our itinerary on the last night and ordered room service. The food we ordered were delicious enough to keep our mood high. Followed by a relaxing hot Spa bath, we ended our beautiful day.
Auberge Discovery Bay has given me and my mate a very sweet memory that we would definitely find our way to pay a visit again. You never imagine how relaxing and superb the service and environment it is if you have never visit. For honeymoon or beach vacation, you definitely need to take it into your list.
