Expect a space filled with eco-friendly toys and handmade upcycled art pieces such as a sea-wave wall decoration crafted from recycled plastic bottles.
Part of a waterfront residential-resort enclave on Castle Peak Bay in the New Territories, Hong Kong Gold Coast Hotel has plenty to recommend it, including stunning sea views, five in-house restaurants, and easy access to the Gold Coast precinct’s shopping piazza and marina.
And now, with the introduction of the Gold Coast Green Journey program, there’s something to suit environmentally minded guests of all ages. In line with its commitment to sustainability, the hotel has created Hong Kong’s first “green upcycling”–themed room, a space filled with eco-friendly toys and handmade upcycled art pieces such as a sea-wave wall decoration crafted from recycled plastic bottles.
It’s meant to be both entertaining and educational, as are a host of other new facilities aimed at younger guests. Among them are a zipline course, an organic farm, and the Tree Hunt Game—a self-guided nature tour developed with The Jane Goodall Institute Hong Kong that explores the area’s diversity of plant and bird life. Going green has never been so much fun.
