Fosun International the leading non-state owned enterprise in China has entered into an agreement with Kerzner International for a new, cutting-edge Atlantis resort along the Haitang Bay National Coast.
This will be the first Atlantis resort in China and only the third Atlantis worldwide.
Overlooking the stunning South China Sea, Atlantis will offer a sense of awe-inspiring discovery, encompassing over 62 hectares of unparalleled excitement and larger than life experiences, revolutionary water play in Aquaventure Waterpark, exotic marine exhibits and incredible dining experiences.
Already a leading holiday destination, the island will be transformed into the new centre for entertainment in China with the addition of this new trailblazing landmark.
Architectural and conceptual planning is under way for Atlantis, Sanya Hainan and construction will begin by the end of 2013 and will be complete in 2016.
“Atlantis resorts have really defined the destinations they are located in - first in The Bahamas, and then on Palm Island, in Dubai,” commented Guo Guangchang, chairman, Fosun.
“Atlantis, Sanya Hainan will re-interpret the myth of Atlantis in a new and modern style, whilst pioneering previously unseen experiences to re-define holiday experiences in China and beyond.
“I am proud to be bringing Atlantis, a must-see resort, to Hainan, China.”
The Atlantis brand has truly defined integrated entertainment destination resorts.
Each Atlantis resort rises majestically out of the sea, first Atlantis, Paradise Island in The Bahamas, followed by Atlantis, The Palm atop the apex of Palm Island in Dubai, and now in Sanya, People’s Republic of China, rising from the South China Sea.
