GOCO conceptualises spa for upcoming Ritz-Carlton Nanyan Bay

by Jane Kitchen | 20 Jul 2016

The Ritz-Carlton is opening a second hotel on the Chinese island of Hainan near the city of Wanning.

Scheduled to open in 2017, the Ritz-Carlton Nanyan Bay will include 244 bedrooms and 14 private villas, as well as a 1,900sq m (20,451sq ft) GOCO-conceptualised spa, which was designed in collaboration with Bensley Design Studio.

The spa is described as having a combination of rustic sophistication infused with a Spanish-Iberian touch, and is designed to bring the lush outdoors of Hainan into the interiors.

With eight treatment rooms and one spa suite, the spa also includes a foot massage area, outdoor vitality pool with relaxation area, indoor vitality pool with heated loungers, beauty salon, barber, heat and water experiences, a tea lounge, gym and mind and body studio.

The hotel will also include a recreation pavilion, and is surrounded by the famed Dongshan Ridge, which features the oldest Buddhist temples in the province. The location is also close to several natural hot springs and nature trails leading to the ancient tropical rainforests. Wanning is also home to a large surf club and home to international surfing competitions.

“Nanyan Bay will be a sensational new resort destination for the Ritz-Carlton in the much-heard-about but relatively under-explored ‘Hawaii of the East,’” said Herve Humler, president and chief operating officer for The Ritz-Carlton.
