China’s First Atlantis Resort

China’s Newest Luxury Resort Atlantis Sanya Opens on Hainan Island

The new Atlantis Sanya is a massive development on Hainan Island, which is sometimes referred to as the “Hawaii of China” thanks to its balmy weather and numerous beaches. The island is already home to players in the luxury market such as Mandarin Oriental, Ritz-Carlton and Rosewood. The new Atlantis Sanya opens after four years and nearly $2 billion in investment.

A resort destination not just for the Chinese, but also for foreigners, the government recently announced that citizens of 59 countries including the U.S., Canada and Australia can visit Hainan for 30 days visa free.

The resort includes the enormous open-air Lost Chambers Aquarium that comprises an underwater habitat called The Ambassador Lagoon where guests can scuba dive. It contains over 3.5 million gallons of seawater and is home to 86,000 marine creatures representing over 270 species. Dolphin Cay affords the opportunity to swim with the sea mammals, as well as a 1,800-seat theater for shows and demonstrations.

Like the other Atlantis locations, this one features sections for family fun as well, including the Aquaventure Waterpark with waterslides, aquatic playgrounds and pools. There is also a Club Rush to keep kids busy with activities throughout the day while adults can take advantage of amenities like the Ahava Spa and the various classes and personal training sessions available in the fitness center.

The entire complex has 21 restaurants, bars and lounges ranging from high-end fine dining to casual eateries.
