Where the sea and sky meet - South Lantau beckons families seeking a resort lifestyle
Lantau’s picturesque and low-density south side is increasingly enticing those looking for resort living and a respite from hyper-urbanism. Unspoilt countryside and pristine beaches where natural landscapes meld with dreamy seascapes soothe the senses, while easy connectivity to the rest of the city makes South Lantau an ideal place to call home.
The natural environment of South Lantau has long been prized in Hong Kong. Set amidst the rolling slopes of Lantau Peak and Sunset Peak, the Lantau South Country Park offers a unique experience in nature with stunning sunrises and sunsets, streams and waterfalls, flora and wildlife, and sweeping vistas along the Lantau Trial, one of Hong Kong’s most popular hiking routes. On the shore are the endless powdery white sands of the three-kilometre long Cheung Sha Beach, Hong Kong’s longest beach perfect for swimming, surfing, kite surfing and paragliding, and the Pui O Beach with a chilled-out vibe. Between the tranquil views of the South China Sea in front and the scenic hills behind, one can certainly feel a million miles away from the bustle of Central.
Yet the buzz of the city is within easy reach. Tung Chung, the city centre of Lantau, is a stone’s throw away. Low traffic in South Lantau enables one to get there by car in just 15 minutes. Here the family can spend an easy day together shopping, dining and picking up groceries at the Citygate shopping centre. From Tung Chung, it’s a quick hop to the Hong Kong International Airport and the future Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao bridge or onward to the rest of the city. For those wishing to travel by sea, Mui Wo is a 25-minute drive away and offers fast ferries to Central.
Education for children is well catered for with a number of popular international schools in South Lantau and Tung Chung that offer well-rounded education of the highest standards in a green environment. Within easy reach is Discovery Bay, home to a network of international schools and playgroups providing more choices to residents.
It is no wonder idyllic South Lantau is fast rivalling Island South and Sai Kung as the new paradise for families seeking an active and healthy lifestyle.
Resort style living
Overlooking the dramatic South Lantau coastline and embraced by the lush greenery of the Lantau South Country Park is WHITESANDS, a tranquil haven for the family. Offering three to four bedroom houses, some with private swimming pools, WHITESANDS encapsulates luxury resort living. Each house is oriented to capture the beauty of its setting, with the layout designed for optimal family living. The front and back gardens are set with natural grass lawns, pebbles and stones that help to nurture children’s sense of wonder and imagination by being at one with nature. These open spaces, a real luxury in Hong Kong, afford residents a sanctuary for quiet contemplation, to soak up the sun or for garden parties and al fresco dining.
A sense of calmness and openness
The expansiveness extends to the interior of each house. On the ground floor are the living and dining rooms with an open layout. Lofty ceilings soar 13 feet high, offering a wonderful sense of spaciousness and airiness. Natural light floods the home through the full-height windows, including frameless corner ones, letting the spirit soar. The open interiors connect seamlessly with the gardens and the lush natural world beyond. This is where family gatherings and entertaining take on an expansive feel, with awe-inspiring views to match.
Making entertaining easeful is the long and linear kitchen fitted with contemporary appliances from luxury European brands such as Gaggenau and Siemens. Generous countertop space and an abundance of natural light make the kitchen the perfect setting for cooking up a storm.
A private retreat
On the first floor is the family’s private retreat. The expansiveness continues with all of the bedrooms featuring a balcony, flat roof or utility platform overlooking the verdant greenery outside. The spacious master bedroom epitomises luxury living with a walk-in closet, a freestanding bathtub in the bathroom and floor-to-ceiling windows that bring the natural beauty of the outdoors into the serene interior.
The rooftop provides more open space for the family to enjoy, be it simply for stargazing or just chilling out.
WHITESANDS, with its fabulous beachfront location and unique natural setting, provides the perfect environment for families to pursue a healthy lifestyle.
