135***11The landmark of Nanshan Cultural Tourism Zone is the 88 m tall Nanhai Guanyin (Goddess of Mercy of the Southern Sea) statue. It stands impressive offshore linked to the land by a causeway and looking into 3 different directions with her 3 faces and bodies. It is visible and stands out when you look down from the skies when your flight is making it'd approach onto the Sanya Phoenix airport. Otherwise the Nanshan temple is the other attraction you must visit in this tourism zone.
Living as an expat in the east of China where the temperature is between -5 to 10 degrees Celsius in January, I decided to spend my birthday on an island with higher temperatures within China since traveling home during the second wave of Covid-19 was scratched of my travels.
I travelled to Hainan Island on my own and it was the best solo trip I’ve taken thus far. I’ve created fond memories over a week. Thanks to the reviews on Trip. com I was able to book one of the best, affordable and trendy hotels on the island.
After a year of lockdown we decided to spend NYE on beautiful Sanya Island. Sun, nice beaches and good food...what else do you need? :)
In my opinion, this place is a must visit in Sanya! it’s not only about the beautiful and giant Buddha in there but the views are stunning!!!!! definitely worth it the visit!
Amazing time in Sanya bay. Not too far from downtown but far enough to avoid large crowds on the beach. Awesome market nearby where you can buy live seafood and then take it to be cooked at a restaurant. Will definitely go back again!
We decided to spend 12 nights at this resort hotel and after a couple of issues checking in, the hotel and management didn’t stop until our magical holiday was perfect.
Breakfast was a real treat and open until 11 am which is perfect for those who do not want to rush! Our housekeeper was fantastic and became part of our holiday. There’s two swimming pools to keep you occupied and the private beach is wonderful. A short stroll to the harbour or to watch the sunset in the evening is close by too.
We ate dinner at the Italian restaurant which was delightful and in room dining was fantastic and reasonably priced.
The staff around the hotel made us feel very welcomed and I know from speaking with the resort manager that he is really developing this service further.
A massive thank you to Owen (Director of Resort) and the Duty manager Charles who went above and beyond to ensure we received 5* hospitality.
We will definitely return in the future!
the design of this place is cool, however, the service in this island is the worse ever.
Lingshui, Hainan .....a tropical paradise. Enjoy the nature, clean air and fresh food.
This is the Phuket of China.. in Hainan Island Sanya. Amazing beach resort area and good for water sports. Booked hotel near the two most popular beaches in Sanya. The food was amazing and super cheap too.
