    The Luxury Collection, part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. has recently unveiled The Royal Begonia, A Luxury Collection Resort, celebrating the brand’s eagerly anticipated arrival in Sanya. Located on the southern tropical island of Hainan, The Royal Begonia joins the legendary Astor Hotel in Tianjin and The Hongta Hotel in Shanghai as the first Luxury Collection resort in China. With this opening, The Luxury Collection brand continues its growth momentum globally with the debut of ten hotels and resorts in Asia Pacific this year alone, including Shanghai, Jaipur and Chennai in India, the Blue Mountains, Australia as well as Koh Samui, Thailand and Jakarta, Indonesia.Occupying an idyllic 370-metre beachfront location on Haitang Bay, The Royal Begonia features 142 luxuriously appointed guest rooms and 18 private villas nestled on the sparkling ivory beaches of the south-eastern coast of Hainan Island. The resort overlooks the sapphire South China Sea with to the north, majestic mountains and verdant rainforests, setting an indelible scene. Guest rooms are a stylish blend of European elegance and local inspiration with natural and soft color palettes, custom-designed furniture, and sophisticated interiors to create a sense of relaxed opulence.

    The hotel’s Abel TOUCH Spa is a serene oasis of relaxation that exudes refinement and local character, with 21 treatment rooms for pampering and well-being, using natural herbal beauty products, acupressure, and indigenous treatments made from tropical fruits. The Royal Begonia offers an incredible variety of culinary experiences including The Begonia, the signature restaurant offering all-day dining with creative Italian-Californian cuisine; the elegant Spanish-themed Buganvillas Lobby Bar which showcases an exquisite wine selection and creative cocktails; as well as Bayview Lounge, featuring the finest cognac, wines, and cigars with sweeping sea views.

    Situated about 35 kilometers from the main international airport in Sanya, The Royal Begonia is conveniently located in one of Hainan’s two main cities. Hainan offers visitors white sand beaches, verdant mountains, and rugged coastlines framing the South China Sea. It has long been home to the Li and Miao minorities, who continue to live and thrive on the island.

    The Royal Begonia is owned by Long-Island Travel Industry Co., Ltd, a subsidiary of China Sigma Co., Ltd.
