To forget the stress of city living, head to the charming village of Tai O on Lantau Island. Within minutes of landing, the nine rooms at Tai O Heritage Hotel await. This former British customs station, built in 1902 to fight against pirates, was restored in 2012, watchtowers and guns included.
From your sober colonial-style room, admire magnificent sunsets and go to sleep to the murmuring sea below. Off in the distance, beautiful pink dolphins gambol. Take a fishermen's skiff out there and join them.
Or, perhaps you prefer the picturesque landscape on the opposite bank with the different greens of the hills. This is the perfect place for a romantic getaway.
