Bethany for Families

Families often arrive at Bethany hoping to find aspects of a classic family holiday – and they are not disappointed. The Bethany facilities – in four separate buildings - are arranged so that children and teenagers can feel relaxed and can do their thing without disturbing adults hoping for peace! 

We have several of our own playgrounds and a sports area. Our nearest family-friendly beach is only a few minutes away. Cheung Chau is a very safe place to bring a family, without cars or other stressed aspects of modern urban life. There are walks and boat-rides and, a little further away, a choice of world-class family amusements such as Hong Kong Disneyland and Ocean Park. 

Families coming to Bethany often make friends with one another. This is particularly true of children, whilst parents share child-minding duties and join together for fun such as outdoor games, barbeques and so on. Young people are a central part of our ministry, whether at play, at the dinner table or at our devotions (often held on Wednesdays and Sundays at 10 am). Our aim is that all ages – from babies through teens to oldies are catered for at Bethany!


Bethany consists of three 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. Family rooms include bunk beds as well as double/twin beds and cots can be added as needed.


Each building has its own sitting and dining room. Families tend to use the larger rooms at Bethany House or Bethany Lodge. Breakfast is provided each day and a communal evening meal is shared every day at 18:00 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, a mixed library of books & DVDs. There are also lots of inside and outside toys, puzzles and games available for children. We have some sports equipment available on site and there are more facilities locally.
