We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. (Mother Teresa)
Bethany can offer a gentle breathing space if you are looking for time away from a busy, demanding life. There is always peace and quiet for individuals at Bethany yet friendly company is never far away should you want it.
We understand that some people just need the rare, precious treat of being on their own for a while. The Bethany pastoral team is on hand, though, if guests value talking issues through or someone to pray with. Some individuals come to Bethany looking for more of a spiritual retreat: there is a selection of materials available to guide people in this and some lovely spaces around the Bethany grounds dedicated to prayer and worship. Meanwhile, the varied delights of Cheung Chau island are just outside the gate.
If you want a particularly quiet time ask if there is space in cosy, somewhat more traditional-style Bethany Cottage. If you are coming with friends, a popular option is to share a room together.
Bethany consists of four single storey buildings, surrounded by flowers, shrubs and trees and peaceful sitting areas. Guestrooms are air-conditioned and well equipped. Most rooms have their own bathrooms. All our buildings have high-speed complimentary WiFi access.
Each building has its own sitting and dining room. Breakfast is provided each day and a communal evening meal is shared every day except Sunday. Mainly Western-style food is served: Bethany’s kitchen receives rave reviews! Soft drinks, ice creams and snacks may be purchased in each building. Other facilities include washing machines and driers, beach kit as well as a mixed library. We have some sports equipment available on site and there are more facilities locally. Staff are always available to meet the needs of our guests.
