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 precinctâ€™s shopping piazza and marina.
And now, with the introduction of the Gold Coast Green Journey program, thereâ€™s something to suit environmentally minded guests of all ages. In line with its commitment to sustainability, the hotel has created Hong Kongâ€™s first â€śgreen upcyclingâ€ťâ€“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.
Itâ€™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 Gameâ€”a self-guided nature tour developed with The Jane Goodall Institute Hong Kong that explores the areaâ€™s diversity of plant and bird life. Going green has never been so much fun.
