Atlantis Sanya, the resort on Hainan Island, opened its doors this Chinese New Year.

Located on the Haitang Bay National Coast, Atlantis Sanya is the first Atlantis resort in China, joining the flagship Atlantis, The Palm in Dubai as well as The Royal Atlantis Resort & Residences in Dubai and Atlantis, Ko Olina in Hawaii, both currently in development.

Serge Zaalof, chief operating officer Atlantis Resorts & Residences comments: “The Atlantis brand is known for ocean-themed destinations offering a wide variety of entertainment experiences and Atlantis Sanya is no exception. The owner, Fosun International, is an incredible partner and together we have created a resort that offers unprecedented experiences to its guests.”

“Following an intense development period of long days and nights by a team of approximately 3,000 colleagues, we are proud to introduce Atlantis Sanya to our first guests and the public.  When you combine 1,314 guestrooms including 154 suites, five of which are underwater suites, impeccable design from talents like Jeffrey Beers International and Hirsch Bedner Associates Design and an incredible water adventure at Aquaventure Waterpark, we know we are giving people unparalleled experiences new to Hainan Island and China, that only Atlantis can deliver”, adds Heiko Schreiner managing director Atlantis Sanya.”

Atlantis Sanya encompasses 540,000 square metres and is built around the myth of The Lost City of Atlantis and overlooking the  South China Sea. The resort includes Aquaventure Waterpark’s twisting waterslides, exploration of the ancient Atlantis civilisation at The Lost Chambers Aquarium, which spans two floors, alongside the exotic marine creatures that reside there, and a look into the largest open-air aquarium in the world, The Ambassador Lagoon.

During their stay at Atlantis, guests will be able to access dining choices at the resort with 21 different restaurants, cafes, lounges, and bars that include the signature Ossiano Underwater Restaurant and Bar, as well as celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay’s awarding winning Bread Street Kitchen and Bar. Atlantis also features a sophisticated and exclusive Ahava spa, boutiques of famous brands, a conference centre and multi-function ballrooms, ideal for all leisure and MICE events.
