There are several attractive reasons why residents of Discovery Bay regularly say their lives have changed for the better since moving there – and all are related to an improved quality of life. For some, it’s the lure of the new Lantau Yacht Club (2) and Discovery Bay Golf Club (2), each set against the backdrop of the verdant well-planned and low-density residential environment on Lantau Island, that’s fringed with beaches (3) and home to international and good quality restaurants, gourmet food, drinks shops and small boutiques (3). For others, it might be their enjoyment of living in a multicultural community, served by international and local schools (3) which offer primary and secondary education, and that’s also well-served with kindergartens, playgrounds, fitness and art studios. 

Lantau Yacht Club (2) opened in 2020 as Hong Kong’s newest marina offering berths for yachts from 10m to 60m, with 38 berths for superyachts of 30m and above – making it a welcoming addition to the local yachting community. Lantau Yacht Club (2) provides a marina approved by the Hong Kong Government in compliance with the highest set of building requirements. The modern and chic clubhouse, superb facilities and impeccable services all add to its appeal.

Detached Splendour

Perched on a hillside, adjacent to the world-class 27-hole Discovery Bay Golf Club (2), are the most exclusive sea-view (1) houses in the vicinity: IL PICCO – meaning “The Peak”, in Italian. Twenty-one 2-storey detached houses, each spanning either 2,023 or 2,171 square feet (4) with airy tall ceilings (floor-to-floor height of 4.3 metres throughout the ground floor) (5), spacious furnished clean-lined modern and warm-toned interiors (8), available with a choice of three or four bedrooms (6), make fabulous practical homes that would suit families comfortably.

The spacious living and dining room area is 8.2 metres wide; and thanks to large glass sliding doors, that opens onto a private garden, it has plenty of daylight and can be naturally ventilated. Also on the ground floor, each house has a stylish kitchen and open pantry, both fitted with integrated culinary appliances throughout (7). On the upper level, while some houses have a family recreational room (6); in all homes, the master bedroom suite connects to a wide flat roof.

Open living and dining room, and open pantry areas keep a clean, bright flow through the ground floor (House 15, IL PICCO). (A)

Against a backdrop of mountains and a reservoir (1), and facing a wide sea view that extends to Victoria Harbour in the distance (1), spacious roofs and private gardens allow for privacy while taking in the peaceful natural surrounds. Garden areas range from 1,963 to 4,124 square feet (4), featuring almost unparalleled private al fresco space not commonly found in Hong Kong homes, and in a number of houses there is also a private swimming pool (8).

Open areas that take in the green and blue panoramas (1) around IL PICCO houses include spacious outdoor areas, as well as wide flat roofs accessible from the master bedroom (House 2 & 15, IL PICCO). (A)

Lifestyle Enhancements

Discovery Bay covers about 650 hectares, of which two-thirds is greenery and this tranquil setting has attracted an international community of residents (3). Apart from Lantau Yacht Club (2) and Discovery Bay Golf Club (2), other leisure pursuits in the neighbourhood include DB Ice Rink (3) – which, alongside skating for fun, offers international-level ice sports coaching. Discovery Bay Recreation Club (9) and Club Siena (9) are home to outdoor swimming pools, a 25-metre indoor pool, a fitness centre, spa facilities, tenpin bowling, tennis courts, a climbing wall and a restaurant and bar. The Auberge Discovery Bay Hong Kong (3) presents high-calibre restaurants, recreation and wellness facilities that include a 25-metre outdoor sea-view pool – all in its hotel setting.  At Discovery Bay, D’Deck, 30-plus freestanding specialty restaurants, cafes and bars are very close to the ferry pier (3); this hub of well-spaced establishments presents a selection of great choices, and it includes some that overlook 400-metre-long Tai Pak Beach (3) – which is characterised with a few outdoor activities.  

Home-owners and residents at IL PICCO can enjoy privileges at neighbouring Discovery Bay Golf Club (2,10,B)

Lantau Yacht Club - the first and only custom-built marina in Hong Kong that can cater to specific needs of megayachts.

IL PICCO home owners can enjoy a household lifestyle membership that comprises privileges at both the Discovery Bay Golf Club (2) and seaside resort hotel Auberge Discovery Bay Hong Kong (10). Another exceptional benefit for IL PICCO owners is that each home is provided with a golf cart (11), for free, for their household’s exclusive use – which is the preferred self-drive means of motorised transport permitted in Discovery Bay. 

Other means of transport in the vicinity and further afield are plentiful: neighbourhood buses (3) serve all residential areas, linking them with the ferry pier, malls and beaches; and shuttle buses (3) connect with Tung Chung and Sunny Bay MTR stations, as well as Hong Kong International Airport. Lantau Island is also connected to the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge (3), making Discovery Bay conveniently accessible to the Greater Bay Area.

For those with children, international schools offer both primary and secondary education at Discovery Bay International School and Discovery College (operated by English Schools Foundation) (3); in addition, there is the SKH Wei Lun Primary School (3), which belongs to the government-funded Central and Western District school network, and there is a good selection of kindergartens in the vicinity.
