Park Hyatt opens at Sunny Bay, Sanya

Park Hyatt Sanya Sunny Bay

Hyatt Hotels Corporation announced the opening of Park Hyatt Sanya Sunny Bay Resort in Sanya on Hainan Island, China’s southern most province widely known as ‘the Hawaii of China’ and the hotel marks the fifth Park Hyatt hotel in China, as well as the 35th Park Hyatt hotel in the world.

Situated on a stunning 350,000 sq m (almost four million sq ft) inlet and featuring a private lake and white-sand beach, Park Hyatt Sanya Sunny Bay Resort combines the luxury of privacy and exclusivity with accessibility, being a mere 5 km (3.1 miles) drive from Yalong Bay, the island’s most popular tourist destination.

Set amid the lush landscape next to the beautiful Nan Hu Lake, the placement of every building and internal space has been carefully considered to maximise guests’ enjoyment of the breath-taking view.  The six buildings are linked by wide walkways and are decorated with paintings and sculptures to create a tranquil and rarefied art-walk experience.

Designed to replicate the feeling of living in a private mansion by the sea, the sophisticated, elegant interiors are residential in style with a subtle Chinese sensibility.  As in private homes, the spaces are wholly flexible. Park Hyatt Sanya Sunny Bay Resort features 207 luxurious guestrooms, including 26 suites and 17 villas.  At 62 sq m (667 sq ft), the standard rooms are among the largest on the island, and almost all of the guestrooms enjoy unadulterated views of the South China Sea.

The Spa at Park Hyatt Sanya Sunny Bay Resort is due to open late 2015. Located by the lake and accessed by buggy, the spacious, light-filled spa will be built in a traditional Chinese style and will feature a main, two-storey building and eight freestanding villas around an open-air courtyard.  The semi open-air villas will each include a couple’s treatment room, a private foot treatment room, a freestanding tub, a shower, a walk-in wardrobe and an oversized daybed.  Meanwhile, the main spa building will feature four additional treatment rooms; three foot-treatment rooms, a TCM consultancy chamber and a lounge on the first floor. The floor below features a gym, a yoga studio and an outdoor infinity pool.  Benefit-driven treatments will be carefully conceived to incorporate proven, traditional Chinese practises, as well as the very latest in international spa techniques.
