Accor has expanded its portfolio of Fairmont hotels with the signing of a luxury resort in Sanya, China.

The Fairmont Sanya Haitang Bay will open in December 2020 following extensive renovations to the property which operated previously as the Wanda Vista Resort Sanya.

The resort, an 8-minute drive from Sanya Haitang Bay International Duty Free Shopping Complex, offers 523 guestrooms and suites as well as residential apartments, with some of these accommodation set within a new Fairmont Gold Tower.

The Fairmont Sanya Haitang Bay features an 1,200-meter long river, the world’s first sea water canal running within a hotel, which enables guests to take a dragon boat ride to reach guestrooms and other hotel facilities whilst enjoying the ever-changing scenery and verdant landscapes.

Guests will be able to enjoy a variety of F&B outlets, a spa, gym, three outdoor swimming pools, a kids’ club with indoor and outdoor play area, and a plenty of meeting and venue space.
