Hong Lok Yuen translates to “happy, healthy garden”, and that it is!  This secret family country club in Tai Po is surrounded by beautiful green mountains that mark New Territories and will inspire immediate relaxation. The Country Club at Hong Lok Yuen ticks all the boxes of what you would want in a club mixed with a relaxed vibe….let’s go!

Originally set up for residents of Hong Lok Yuen, this country club is now open to anyone, for a slight premium. A mere 10-minute taxi ride from the Tai Wo MTR, it’s a worthwhile escape from the city even if you don’t live nearby.  Membership gives you access to the Chinese and Western restaurants (poolside service!); gym with sauna and jacuzzi; tennis, squash, and basketball courts; 3 outdoor pools (including a partly-shaded kids area); indoor and outdoor playgrounds; and much more. There are tons of classes for every age and interest, including NAUI-certified scuba diving classes in the 3-meter pool for your adventurous bubs. Plus with a slew of events, you’ll never be bored. Don’t miss Friday nights in the summer, when the club really does it up with giant inflatables and extra lifeguards.

$54,000 family membership for non-HLY residents, plus $1,550 monthly fee.
