Lantau Island is often referred to as “the lungs” of Hong Kong. It is the largest of Hong Kong’s islands and features stunning views of the surrounding mountains, indigenous forests, and beaches.
Ark Eden is a campsite settled into the greenery of Lantau Island that also offers a few comfortable rooms. The organization offers children who normally live in a city the opportunity to explore a natural environment and educate them not only the fascinating beings one might find in such a landscape, but the value and love found in the forest. It is a place of discovery, compassionate living, and imaginative play. The campsite is a lush forested valley garden in the foothills of Mui Wo within walking distance of nearby beaches and waterfall.
The accommodations are quite rustic in some ways, but offer genuine connection to the land and ensure that its residents are comfortable. There are a limited number of private rooms available. All accommodations have use of the kitchens, general facilities, and common spaces, which include a natural swimming pool and rooftop garden. Room costs vary from $400-500 HKD (approx $50-60 USD)/night. Bedding and linens are included with these prices.
Camping costs $180 HKD (approx $23 USD)/night. Prices for camping include a sleeping bag, roll mat, and the tent rental.
Breakfast is included for anyone that books a room or camping with Ark Eden. Lunch is available on a pre-booked basis, and costs $120 HKD (approx $15 USD). Meals served by Ark Eden are vegetarian. Most of the food is grown on site in the Permaculture Farm, though some produce is supplemented by the nearby markets.
Dinner will be served by a caterer TBD.
Each building has three fully equipped kitchens. There is also a barbecue available for use on the beach, a pizza oven, and campfires available.
Ark Eden is around an hour-long trip from the Hong Kong International Airport.
