Morning and afternoon tea breaks with snacks and refreshments are also included.

To enrich the day and further enhance the ultimate meeting experience, Auberge Discovery Bay Hong Kong has prepared a selection of 5-to-10-minute activities that take advantage of the resort setting. ‘Meetings with Muscle’ allows guests to test their limits with a fitness session at the camp or at one of their outdoor venues, while ‘Movers and Shakers’ enables visitors to reach new heights with stretching exercises conducted prior to the meeting, during the breakout sessions, or at the end of the day and a ‘Cocktail Conference’ for delegates to Indulge in a post-meeting cocktail at one of their alfresco dining spots.

When its time to plan the perfect meeting, there’s a lot to consider, but with the seaside retreat’s vast selection of event space and functional venues, planners have all the options they need to customise every event.  The spectacular Grand Azure ballroom is conveniently located on the ground floor, and is the venue of choice for large-scale events.

Delegates can also relax and replenish at Café bord de Mer by enjoying some of the best alfresco dining in Hong Kong. The retreat’s signature restaurant offers guests an innovative fusion menu of delightful French and Asian cuisines.

The Bounty Bar, situated next to Café bord de Mer is the perfect setting for a pre-dinner cocktail or after-dinner nightcap with its relaxed atmosphere and innovative cocktail and snack menu. The bar overlooks the pontoon where Hong Kong’s only European tall ship - The Bounty, will be docked. The magnificent ship will also be available for evening cruises and cocktails. This culinary hub is an ideal gathering place for guests to meet and un-wind after an activity packed day.

For imaginative and successful team-building, organisers can choose from various venues to host corporate events, such as the High Tide Pool Deck.
