Lantau Yacht Club is offering its first ‘Yachtcation Package’ which allows boats in Hong Kong to visit the new marina overnight, dine in the newly opened clubhouse, enjoy the facilities and explore Discovery Bay.
Yachting has increased in popularity in Hong Kong during the Covid era, with the number of pleasure boats in the city increasing by over 580 in 2020. Lantau Yacht Club soft opened late last year and became fully operational earlier this year, with the marina offering 148 berths for yachts up to 60m.
Tennis is included in the ‘Yachtcation Package’
The ‘Yachtcation Package’ includes one night’s wet berthing and a four-course dinner for two with sparkling wine at Caffè Napoli in the new clubhouse. The package also includes two transfers within Discovery Bay and use of the tennis courts and shower facilities.
Visitors can also enjoy 15 per cent discount on a spa treatment at Spa Botanica of Auberge Discovery Bay Hong Kong and the best available room rate at the Seaside Resort Hotel, Auberge Discovery Bay Hong Kong, while a complimentary DB Shopping Directory and Hiking Guidebook is provided.

“LYC is excited to launch the first-ever yachtcation package offered by yacht clubs in Hong Kong,” said Charlotte Ho, Director of Hospitality Marketing and Membership of Auberge Hospitality, the hospitality arm of Hong Kong Resort Company Limited.
“With the recent travel restrictions, many people who used to spend weeks on their yachts overseas during summer are now enjoy yachting in Hong Kong.

“This is a great opportunity for them to explore different yachting locations, especially the western and southern waters of Hong Kong. While berthed at LYC, yacht owners can also enjoy all the offerings Discovery Bay can provide such as beach fun at Tai Pak Beach or the leisurely ambience with a drink at the alfresco dining hub D’Deck.”
The package starts from HK$2,200 for yachts up to 10m, with prices varying according to size of yachts and choices of menus.

Lantau Yacht Club has recently been welcoming visiting and temporary members, who have spoken highly of the facilities, staff and marina.
Ms Bernadette, who has visited the marina with her family and their yacht, said: “I really appreciate the efficiency and friendliness of the front desk staff who got out of their way to take care of the members. We especially enjoyed the serene and peaceful atmosphere at LYC.”

Mr Metz has brought his boat to Lantau Yacht Club multiple times and was also full of praise. “It’s the best marina in Hong Kong with excellent facilities and supportive staff. Its location also offers the convenience to sail around Lantau where I can stay active in the great waters year round.”
Hong Kong’s first custom-built superyacht marina, Lantau Yacht Club is now welcoming its first boats following an extensive overhaul of the former Club.
