"He then led them out of the city over to Bethany. Raising his hands he blessed them, and while blessing them, took his leave, being carried up to heaven."  Luke 24:50


Retreat Setting

Bethany Guest Houses

Bethany is located atop a hill on the beautiful island of Cheung Chau, just minutes from the beach, and 20 minutes from the island's ferry pier. Set away from the main town, the guesthouse sits amidst lush greenery and beautiful ocean views that offer a unique and quiet oasis. 

Bethany is at the top of a modest hill called Fa Peng Knoll. Our address is 12, 17 & 17A Fa Peng Road. Though Cheung Chau is a fairly small island, it is possible to get lost! We suggest that you download and print our directions page.


The Bethany complex consists of three single storey buildings, surrounded by flowers, shrubs and trees, peaceful sitting areas and children's play facilities. 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. Families tend to use the larger rooms at Bethany House or Bethany Lodge; if you want a particularly quiet time ask if there is space in the cozy, somewhat more traditional-style Bethany Cottage.


Cheung Chau

Bethany's location in Cheung Chau is idyllic: surrounded by greenery, overlooking the sea and a few minutes from sandy beaches and peaceful walks around rocky coves. Yet the town with its restaurants, shops and other facilities is just nearby. Even the ferry ride helps in the winding down process, as the pressure of Hong King city gives way to an island with no cars, pollution or sense of urgency. Cheung Chau is a fascinating place to explore. The island maintains a large fishing fleet with many fisher folk living traditional lifestyles aboard authentic wooden junks. Down by the harbour the atmosphere is bustling. Guests agree that the 20 minute walk partly up the hill from the ferry to our tranquil oasis is then definitely worth it.

Cheung Chau is an outer island of Hong Kong and can be reached only by ferry from Hong Kong Island and Lantau Island. Upon reaching the island, you will still find a large number of traditional fishing boats and shops reminiscent of this historical fishing village. The town center can get busy with bicycles and visitors walking about, but you won't find any cars on this small island. This unique island has much to offer with its sandy beaches, paved walking trails, and independent shops, restaurants, and small artist galleries.
