The Sanya Edition, an oceanfront destination on Hainan is opened
The newly opened Sanya Edition comprises 512 residential-style guestrooms, including 46 suites, and an additional 17 exclusive hotel villas nestled into a terraced hillside, each one with a private pool and private outdoor space.
Located in Haitang Bay, the hotel is set within 50 acres of landscaped lush tropical greenery. The hotel was designed for people of all ages, which is a delicate balancing act. The fundamental idea behind this resort was to divide the property into different specialized zones that overlap with each other but simultaneously retain their own unique identities.
The zones include: water, fun, sports, kids, adult, family, eating, nightlife, entertainment, sensory and relaxation. They are magical in their interaction while the total experience becomes more than the sum of the individual parts. While adventurers climb the rock wall or ride the paddleboards, friends gather in the Mahjong Rooms. As toddlers explore the water slides and fantastical tree house, wellness seekers retreat to the meditation forest or find sanctuary in the 12 exclusive treatment rooms in The Spa.
Throughout the lush tropical landscape, a village of family cabanas and relaxation pavilions – each one fitted with couches, TVs and mini bars. The property highlights a balance of contrasts, where traditional elements meet contemporary culture, simplicity conveys sophistication, and modern design amplifies the natural beauty.
The reception area reflects the duality of the hotel where a traditional lotus pool and live bamboo grove serve as a counterpoint to an art gallery displaying the work of renowned Chinese artists.
Playland at Edition is a new kind of family entertainment area bringing multi-generational family members together. A world of entertainment and imagination for adults and kids of all ages, Playland is a large dedicated area within the resort that has been transformed into an activity and fun zone, featuring everything from games and interactive experiences to entertainment and educational provide the ideal stage to set any conference, wedding or social gathering.
The hotel’s Grand Ballroom measures 1,300 sq m, with seating for 900 guests. Above the meeting center, a flowering roof garden and amphitheater offer picture-perfect settings for open-air concerts and events.
