The much-awaited Atlantis Sanya is now open on Hainan Island. The $1.6 billion, 540,000 sq m property is the latest to join China’s luxury resorts list. Located on the Haitang Bay National Coast, Atlantis Sanya is built around the myth of the 'lost city of Atlantis'. Thus, as you can imagine, water is a running theme.
The resort offers water play on Aquaventure Waterpark’s (spanning 200,000 sq m) twisting waterslides, exploration of the ancient Atlantis civilization at the Lost Chambers aquarium (spanning two floors) alongside over 80,000 exotic marine creatures, while guests can also look into the largest open-air aquarium in the world, the Ambassador Lagoon. Check out the 1,800-seater theatre at Dolphin Cay, state-of-the-art marine protection and conservation facilities, and a Sea Lion Point.
The resort has 1,314 guestrooms and suites but there are five underwater suites which will provide guests with a thrilling experience. Not just exhilarating stays, but the Atlantis Sanya will offer 21 different restaurants to guests – from Ossiano Underwater restaurant and bar, to Gordon Ramsay’s award-winning Bread Street Kitchen and Bar along with other lounges and cafes. Boutiques, the AHAVA spa, a conference centre and multi-functional ballrooms also on offer will make your stay at this billion-dollar resort worth your while.
