Autograph Collection Hotels has today announced the opening of The Shanhaitian Resort Sanya, Autograph Collection, marking the brand’s debut in China.
The hotel joins the Collection’s ensemble of more than 100 strikingly independent properties around the world that are exactly like nothing else and share the brand’s values of vision, design and craft.
This marks a milestone for the brand, as Autograph Collection Hotels continues to lengthen its lead as the fastest growing brand in its category.
On track to reach 200 hotels in the next five years, Autograph Collection Hotels will expand its presence in Asia Pacific with upcoming openings in Indonesia, Malaysia, South Korea, China and the Philippines.
Boasting a stunning backdrop of Luhuitou Park and the idyllic Dadonghai Bay, The Shanhaitian Resort Sanya exudes an understated, glamorous aesthetic with 199 guestrooms and 17 suites that seamlessly blend urban energy with a relaxed, resort atmosphere.
Designed by the renowned Bangkok-based studio, P49 Design & Associates, the hotel’s design evokes the rhythm of water surrounding the locale.
Fluid lines and curves are recurring motifs, echoing the mesmerizing movement and stillness of water.
Contoured ceilings are reminiscent of the ripple patterns in the sand when the tide goes out, while dramatic glass chandeliers are symbolic of swimming schools of fish.
The lighting panel is the centrepiece of the lobby, projecting water and moving images to enhance the energy of the space.
The resort’s third-floor recreational facilities, dubbed The Podium, feature specially-designed zones for well-being, relaxation and rejuvenation, fitness, nourishment and fun.
Highlights include an infinity pool with unparalleled views of Dadonghai Bay; a state-of-the-art glass-walled gym with a heated sauna; a swim-up pool bar; and a spa with four deluxe ‘huts’ offering bespoke treatments.
Equipped for both business and leisure travellers, the hotel features four recreational swimming pools and kids club as well as over 830 square meters of multi-functional meeting space to accommodate events of all sizes.
With luxurious finishes and sophisticated design elements, the 500-square-meter pillar-less Grand Ballroom is an ideal setting for exclusive events as well.
