Novotel Hong Kong Citygate

51 Man Tung Rd., Tung Chung, Lantau Island, n/a Hong Kong, Hong Kong

This hotel's out-of-the-way location on Lantau Island may not immediately strike you as desirable: however, Lantau has been developing as a tourist attraction in its own right, and the island's natural beauty is finally getting the publicity it deserves. Situated right at the island's main transport hub, Novotel Citygate is perfectly placed for exploring Lantau's sights. Buses to Tai O, a remote fishing village on the other side of the island, leave just five minutes from here on foot; the Ngong Ping 360 cable car is also close by. Experienced trekkers can even try walking the Lantau hills from here, although most of the trails are considered moderate to difficult. The concierge can organize white dolphin sightseeing trips, which depart from the nearby pier. Guest rooms are spacious and bright, with large windows and open bathrooms, offering spectacular views of either the sea or the Lantau hills and cable cars. Should the weather not hold up, you may find other pleasures in the adjoining Citygate outlet mall and cinemas, not to mention the 30-minute MTR ride from Tung Chung to Central.
