Taking a commanding seaview over Junk Bay and Lei Yu Mun both to the North, Island Resort is a mega scale residential / commercial development on a piece of land adjoining the Siu Sai Wan Sports Ground and a local open space. Most of the outward facing units enjoy uninterrupted seaview. A seafront promenade in front of the development provides good pedestrian connection to the neighbouring areas.
There are 8 nos. of 50-51-storey residential towers sitting on a massive 7-storey podium consisted of Loading / Unloading facilities and several carparking floors. Shops, supermarket and restaurants are at lower podium floors. A club house extends out to a big open deck with swimming pools and a few tennis courts. These recreational facilities are for the exclusive use of residents, designed to be engulfed and tactfully sheltered under the tall towers surrounding the open space, which helps avoid the unpleasant draught from the north especially during winter time. A regional Public Transport Interchange for big franchise buses and mini-buses is located at ground floor. This development produced 3,111 number of flats and accommodated a population estimated to be well over 12,000 people with a total GFA of about 3 million sq. ft.
Being one of the tallest buildings along the seafront of Siu Sai Wan, the whole development has protraited a clustic of tree-trunk like structures nestled in patches of greenery on both sides of the development and stands out as an icon when viewed from Junk Bay and Tseung Kwan O and when approach to Victoria Harbour is from the sea from the East of Hong Kong.
