The Shanhaitian Resort Sanya has opened its doors in the Da Dong Hai Bay area of China's Hainan Island. The hotel is part of Marriott's Autograph Collection and marks the brand's debut in China. It joins more than 100 independent properties around the world that make up the collection.
The 199-room hotel boasts stunning views of Luhuitou Park and Da Dong Hai Bay, a feature which played a large part in the property's design - the movement of the ocean is featured in design elements throughout.
The resort offers over 830 square meters of multi-functional meeting space that can accommodate events of all sizes. The luxuriously-decorated 500-square-meter pillar-less Grand Ballroom can accommodate up to 500 with two additional meeting rooms and a VIP room on offer as well.
The third-floor recreational facilities include an infinity pool, a gym with a heated sauna, a swim-up pool bar, and a spa with four deluxe 'huts'. The hotel also features four recreational swimming pools and a kids' club.
Five dining and drinking outlets are on offer: The Residence, the hotel's signature Chinese restaurant; The Reef, an all-day international dining venue; The Pool Bar; The Lounge; and The Pod, a bar which offers cocktails along with healthy drinks and smoothies.
Autograph Collection aims to double this number in the next five years with locations in Asia Pacific that include upcoming openings in Indonesia, Malaysia, South Korea, China and the Philippines.
