The far reaches of Lantau Island may mean a long ride into the heart of the city, but Tai O shows a whole different side to Hong Kong. This heritage hotel is housed in a beautifully converted former police station dating back to 1902, originally built to deter pirates. Here, nine elegant rooms and suites await those seeking an unusual place to stay. The surrounding fishing village is a popular visitor destination in its own right, while the iconic Big Buddha is an easy bus ride away.
