Just when you think that China has offered everything it possibly could to the world, it suddenly emerges with a hidden treasure to capture our interests all over again. This time, it does so in the form of an idyllic tropical island just waiting to be discovered by us luxury holiday hunters. Situated on the island of Hainan, dubbed the “Hawaii of the South China Sea”, is the beachfront town of Sanya. It has all the makings of a leading tourist destination, from sandy beaches, pristine blue waters, ethnic culture, and of course, luxurious resorts!
The Ritz Carlton Sanya stands out amongst the growing number of resorts in the area as one of its kind. The resort reflects a Forbidden City feel, with a majestic, palace-like lobby and sprawling gardens, courtyards, and lagoons. Enjoy the resorts elegantly furnished rooms and suites or check in to one of the private villas complete with their very own plunge pool for the utmost privacy and luxury.
A little time at “Espa” is perfect addition to a relaxing retreat. Indulge in a world of comfort with a variety of treatments inspired by Chinese traditions of healing and well-being. We recommend the traditional Zen Journey treatment, a three hour experience starting with a sea salt scrub, Chinese massage, reflexology treatment, and topped off with a healthy spa lunch that will leave you on cloud nine.
When it comes to cuisine, there is something for every palate with the Ritz's eight different dining venues. Indulge in local Cantonese flavors at “Pearl”, Italian specialties at the very romantic “Sophia”, or opt for dining al fresco by the crashing waves with “Sand's” seafood barbeque.
Those looking to tie the knot in an intimate destination wedding should look no further. The resort offers arrangements for everything from bridal shower tea parties, to a sea-side chapel, to a beachfront reception.
