Fairmont Hotels & Resorts is extending its Chinese portfolio by signing a management contract for a new hotel on Hainan Island. The Fairmont Haitang Bay Resort in Sanya is scheduled to open in 2011.
The resort will be developed by Beijing-based Antaeus Group, a leading real estate company that has developed more than 2 million square meters (22 mil sq ft) of real estate in China.
The resort offers a beachfront location and 702 spacious guestrooms and suites. In addition, guests can choose from 50 one and two-bedroom villa suites, as well as a Presidential Villa offering more than 5,000 square feet space and private butlers.
The hotel offers a variety of restaurants and bars, including a Chinese restaurant, a wide range of meeting rooms and function space.
Recreational amenities will include a Willow Stream Spa with 20 treatment rooms, outdoor and indoor swimming pools and access to a nearby golf course at the beach.
