The Fairmont Hotels and Resorts luxury brand will make its entry into Greater China Region in December 2020 when it opens the refurbished Fairmont Sanya Haitang Bay. The resort will complement Fairmont’s other assets in mainland China located in Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu, Wuhan, Nanjing, Guiyan and Kunshan.
Fairmont Sanya Haitang Bay affords views towards the diver’s paradise of Wuzhizhou Island and Yajia Daling Mountains. The resort has the formal symmetry often found in imperial palaces and offers a number of exquisite architectural gems that are destinations in their own right.
In accordance with ancient Chinese architectural principles, a pair of Watchtowers forms the portal to the resort. Covered Lounge Bridges made from stone arches act as pathways to the lobby pavilion, providing rest, shelter and vistas of intricate cornices against the green surrounds.
Within the lobby, precious detailed wood carvings on walls and ceiling friezes took more than two years to complete and demonstrate a sense of grandeur and profoundness. Its unique 1,200-metre-long river is the world’s first seawater canal running within a hotel. Guests can take a dragon boat ride to reach guestrooms and all other hotel facilities while enjoying the ever-changing scenery and amazing landscapes.
The resort offers 523 guestrooms and suites as well as residential apartments, with some set within a new Fairmont Gold Tower. Fairmont Gold is the brand’s premier lifestyle concept of a ‘hotel within a hotel’ providing the highest level VIP services for the most discerning leisure and business guests.
Fairmont Sanya Haitang Bay will open in December 2020 following extensive renovations to the property. The hotel joins a prestigious collection that includes the Fairmont San Francisco, Plaza New York and The Savoy London, both managed by Fairmont, and the Fairmont Peace Hotel Shanghai, Fairmont Banff Springs, Fairmont Ajman and the Fairmont Century Plaza Los Angeles.
