Lakeside Park Hyatt Sanya Sunny Bay Resort debuts on Hainan Island

by Helen Andrews | 06 Feb 2015

Park Hyatt Sanya Sunny Bay Resort has opened on Hainan Island in Sanya, China’s southernmost province, promising the opening of a lakeside spa later in 2015.

Situated three miles from Yalong Bay, the island’s most popular tourist destination, the 207-bedroom property has been designed by Belgian architect Jean-Michel Gathy of design firm Denniston. The modernist development comprises six standalone arch-shaped buildings designed to allow chi, the traditional Chinese notion of energy, to flow unhindered between ocean and mountains.

Due to open later this year, the resort’s spa will be located by the Nan Hu Lake and accessed by buggy. Set to be built in traditional Chinese style, the site will feature a main two-storey building and eight freestanding semi open-air villas around an outdoor courtyard. Within each of the villas there will be a couples’ treatment room, private foot treatment room, freestanding tub, shower, walk-in wardrobe and an oversized day bed.

The main spa building will offer four additional treatment rooms, three foot treatment rooms, a Traditional Chinese Medicine consultancy chamber and a lounge on the first floor. The floor below will comprise a gym, yoga studio and an outdoor infinity pool.

The resort offers five separate pools, including the infinity pool at the spa. There is also a 375sq ft (35sq m) pool, a children’s pool, family pool and an indoor pool.

There are also eight drinking and dining venues at the property and eight unique, residential-style event venues ranging in size from 450sq ft (42sq m) to more than 3,600sq ft (334sq m).

Outdoor activities on offer include hiking, golfing and stargazing, along with tours to nearby attractions such as Butterfly Valley, Nanshan Temple, Yazhou Ancient City and the Ganzaling Nature Reserve.
