Combining contemporary design with laid-back beach chic, Mandarin Oriental, Sanya is an idyllic hotel on Hainan Island, China.

At this 30-acre resort, the beautifully landscaped grounds with whimsical stone statues and the range of on-site activities, including a rock-climbing wall and golf simulator, go a long way to compensate for the site’s lackluster Coral Bay beach, only a sliver of which is swimmable. 


Lying south of Hong Kong, Hainan is a tropical paradise home to miles of beaches and majestic mountains, just 20 minutes away Sanya Phoenix International Airport.


Set in dramatic volcanic stone buildings that rise just above the surrounding palm trees, the 195 guestrooms all have sea views and balcony and are accented with natural fibers and textiles woven by the local Li and Miao people. Boasting its own private beach and beautifully landscaped gardens, it is in keeping with the Mandarin's usual high standards. 

68 pavilion rooms close to the beach and 18 suites with private terrace or balcony, all combines a comtemporary décor with ethnic touches, our rooms, suites and villas are beautifully designed.

15 duplex pool villas feel the most like private retreats, with dedicated butler service, heated infinity pools, and floor-to-ceiling windows facing the turquoise sea. 


The protected coral beach stretches 1.2km along the stunning coastline. There are a host of pathways and gardens running along the shoreline as well as sun loungers on the beach, hammocks swaying amongst the palm trees and a designated swimming zone.

Also, the cooking class is designed for both adults and children. Focusing on Chinese, Indian and Western styles of cuisine, these classes are a fun and educational way to spend the day.

From beachside dining to elegant Cantonese cuisine, the hotel offer a range of restaurants and bars, all with fabulous menus and breathtaking views, delicious seafood, authentic Cantonese, mouth-watering noodles as well as the cocktails and veiws at Sunset Bar.
