Located in the Sai Kung Peninsula, the easternmost part the New Territories in Hong Kong, the site is situated along the shoreline, facing the South China Sea. Developed from a rural fishing village, Sai Kung is now a leisure and tourist destination, a main attraction for local citizens and visitors during weekends.

The Sai Kung WM Hotel is a 3-storey hotel that houses 260 rooms, and offers retail and wedding services. “The prime objective of the development is to maximise the number of rooms with sea view. In the master plan, we organised the hotel into a zig-zag composition with three discrete building blocks to achieve this objective,” Aedas Executive Director Cary Lau explained.

Toensure harmony with Sai Kung’s texture, the 3-storey hotel is designed to cohere with the low-rise context of the Sai Kung District.

The hotel is equipped with a swimming pool and private gardens on the roof, which double up as medium for reducing solar heat gain.

On the seafront, the zig-zag composition created two sunken plazas. On one hand, a set of stairs lead up to a chapel in the wedding garden, which is designed to maximise sea view, and provide ceremonial photo-taking opportunities.

On the other hand, in the retail plaza area, an amphitheater seating area is created for events and performances; further out, visitors can discover and indulge in food and beverages along the waterfront— Combining commercial, entertainment and services against the backdrop of an exquisite sea view, a zestful leisure destination is created.

Disintegrated into human-scale blocks, the development takes on the shape of fishing boats, as a gesture to Sai Kung’s past. The facade is constructed with various shades of timber and white aluminum panels; the contrast in colors elevates the building’s stature to a more dynamic, three-dimensional body.

“We hope to deliver a relaxing and vibrant development that blends seamlessly into the Sai Kung fabric, providing visitors an immaculate experience.” — Aedas Executive Director, Cary Lau.
