About the Hotel

A Cultural Glamour

Time marches ever on, but the unique Tai O fishing village retains Hong Kong's indigenous heritage, combining native rural charm with a contemporary twist. Harbouring distinctive traditions such as the Dragon Boat Deities' Parade and rich geographic wealth like the waterways flowing between its stilt houses, it's no wonder Tai O is widely hailed as "the Venice of the Orient".

Now the village will again dazzle the world, with its rising icon - the Tai O Heritage Hotel, a colonial edifice built under British colonial rule in 1902 as a police station to guard the shore against bandits. Nestling on a secluded headland abutting Shek Tsai Po Street in the west of the village, the Hotel enjoys a spectacular view of the South China Sea and the tranquil Tai O fishing village. With its refined colonial-style façade and chic interior, the Tai O Heritage Hotel defines perfection in the fruition of time.

Revel in the comfort of the nine uniquely appointed rooms. Reminisce about the police force protecting the fishing village below as you look out from the glass-roofed open view restaurant and indulge in an unparalleled dining experience prepared by our chefs. Travel back in time in the Heritage Interpretation Centre to uncover the wonders of the historical Tai O. Tai O Heritage Hotel does not merely accommodate its valued guests, but weaves for them a cherished Tai O experience.
