Nice Hotel on the Beach.
Posted Feb 7, 2017
I've been returning to the Silvermine Beach Hotel for the greater part of the last decade, and it keeps improving.
First of all, the location is superb. The hotel sits right on the beach, has a nice indoor/outdoor restaurant, nice sea views, and is within walking distance of good hiking up the mountains towards Discovery Bay or the other way, into town for dining, shopping, or access to the ferry which goes to Central Hong Kong.
The rooms are adequate, with comfortable bed, but Spartan mini bar or snacks in the room (meaning, nothing is in the fridge).
The restaurants nearby include local seafood.
The hotel also has a modest gym and spa, and I availed myself of the massage service in the spa, which helped relieve a stiff neck, but the price is rather high in the spa.
Also, the hotel is not more than a 30 minute taxi ride from the airport, which is accessed via a winding mountain road.
