    St. Regis Hotels & Resorts is pleased to announce the grand opening of The St. Regis Sanya Yalong Bay Resort, the eagerly anticipated crown jewel along Yalong Bay, China’s premiere resort destination on Hainan Island. As South China’s first St. Regis Resort, The St. Regis Sanya Yalong Bay Resort will define a new standard of exceptional luxury, contemporary sophistication and bespoke services for visitors to Hainan.

    Located on one of the most coveted and beautiful stretches of coastline on Yalong Bay, The St. Regis Sanya Yalong Bay Resort offers 373 exquisitely designed guest rooms and suites, and 28 oversized and sumptuously appointed beachside villas. The resort’s contemporary architecture is inspired by the concept of two intertwined dragons, reflected as undulating waves which are incorporated in all of the resort’s structural elements. The St. Regis offers three signature epicurean experiences and a sophisticated lounge which are certain to become island destinations of their own. In addition, The St. Regis Sanya Yalong Bay Resort is introducing the South China region’s first Iridium Spa, a lavish five-star sanctuary of wellbeing.

    Exceptional Accommodations
    The guestrooms and villas at the St. Regis Sanya Yalong Bay are designed as “guest quarters by the sea,” – sophisticated, relaxing, and sumptuously appointed with deluxe amenities, including high thread-count linens, plush bath towels and St. Regis signature bath accessories. In addition, each room is equipped with state-of-the-art modern conveniences, such as HD plasma cable televisions, computer and iPod charging stations, and WiFi access.

    A New Culinary Scene for Hainan
    The St. Regis Sanya Yalong Bay Resort offers a world of epicurean experiences, with three distinct restaurants that are certain to become the elite culinary destinations on Hainan. Social offers all-day dining with a wide selection of international cuisine that offers something for every palate. Located on the beach, Driftwood serves up freshly-caught local seafood accompanied by unrivalled views of Yalong Bay. Ming Xuan features sophisticated, modern Cantonese and Sichuanese dishes amidst a spacious, glamorous setting. Before or after dinner, Decanter offers fine wines from the world’s most celebrated vineyards and private rooms for tastings or dinners. Finally, the Drawing Room Lounge and Bar is a rare haven of refined luxury in which guests are welcome to enjoy the enduring St. Regis tradition of Afternoon Tea or the new signature Sanya Mary cocktail.

    South China Region’s First Iridium Spa
    In addition, the St. Regis Sanya Yalong Bay Resort will introduce the South China region’s first Iridium Spa, which will become a destination of its own for visitors to Sanya. Born from the DNA of the prestigious St. Regis brand, Iridium Spa, with three locations around the world, is setting a new five-star standard for spa luxury. Building on a legacy that dates back to the original Iridium Room at the St. Regis New York, the resort’s Iridium Spa articulates the same distinctive elegance, delivering customized experiences that combine signature St. Regis five-star pampering with traditional Chinese treatments and ingredients.

    The St. Regis Sanya Yalong Bay Resort has recently also been honored with the Annual Hotel Award for Most Anticipated New Opening by the respected 2011 Asia Hotel Forum (AHF) Awards. The AHF Awards represent the hotel industry’s international awards of excellence across various categories, all carefully and justly chosen by a jury of esteemed hospitality professionals. The outstanding enterprises selected are thus recognized as recipients of the International Hotel Investment Awards.
