Raffles Arrives in China
To expand its collection of luxury properties, Raffles Hotels & Resorts will open its second resort in China in May. Raffles Hainan will be opening in Clearwater Bay, a hot-spot on the Southeast coast of Hainan Island and a rising destination in the luxury tourism market. With a fantastic beachfront location, Raffles Hainan will offer contemporary guestrooms and exquisitely appointed villas, all with private balconies and ocean views. As a special introductory offer, guests can stay for three nights and pay the price of two, receive a complimentary upgrade to a Grand Ocean View Room, round-trip airport transfers, welcome drinks, daily buffet breakfast for two, and late checkout. Offer is valid until 30 September.
Each of Raffles Hainan’s 299 elegant guestrooms and suites will have a contemporary design with locally inspired accents, such as artisan wood furnishings, colourful fabrics and indigenous artworks. These pay homage to the traditional local hill tribes in Hainan and Bali, and bring a sense of place to the interiors. Each room enjoys magnificent ocean or golf course views from private balconies.
For guests looking for privacy and exclusivity, each of the 32 exquisitely appointed beachfront Private Villas offer a plunge pool, private garden and access to a guests-only deluxe Clubhouse. The crowning jewel is the spectacular Presidential Villa, set over two floors and featuring seven bedrooms and a private swimming pool in a lush garden setting.
Raffles Hainan is also home to the first Raffles Spa in China, a 1,400sq m retreat designed to resemble a small Chinese village. The resort will also offer an outdoor lagoon swimming pool, Fitness Centre, water sports and a dedicated Children’s Club.
Dining is a highlight at Raffles Hainan with four superb restaurants including all-day dining at Desa, Bai Wei Chinese Restaurant, Sapori Italian Restaurant and the al fresco Balinese-style Sing Ken Ken Pool Bar & Grill, set in a limestone cave. The legendary Raffles’ Long Bar will also travel to Hainan, a tribute to Ngiam Tong Boon, the Hainanese bartender who created the Singapore Sling.
