Why Sanya on Hainan Island is the ultimate vacation destination

 

If you love vacationing in a beach resort, Sanya, a city on the Hainan Island of China, is just the place for you. Hot springs and duty-free shopping are added bonus with the package.

The Sanya beach resort in southeast China offers just that.

The popularity of Sanya among holiday-makers has driven many top-of-the-line hotel chains, including international giants, to set up shop along the beaches in Sanya.

“The tourist inflow is not only from China’s mainland now. We get a lot of foreign tourists from Australia, New Zealand, European countries, Russia and even India,” Flada, an executive with the MGM Grand hotel in the Yalong Bay area, tells IANS.

The sun-kissed beaches, tropical weather and the greenery of the Hainan countryside offer a lot to visitors in Sanya. Being located in the southeast part of China and just a 90 minute flight away from Hong Kong gives Sanya easy access.

The Sanya Phoenix International Airport may not look flashy enough to carry the tag but it caters to a number of flights, most of which originate from within China or nearby countries.

Sanya is also home to open hot spring resorts. There are a few of them located in the green countryside of the province. The Sanya Pearl River Nantian Hot Spring resort boasts of the largest open-air hot springs in China.

“It is a different feeling to be sitting in open air hot springs that open into personalised small pools. One can choose the type of hot spring that one wants to and also the temperature of water (20 to 50 degrees) as per convenience,” says Cheng Lei, a visitor to one of the hot springs.

Another major attraction is the duty-free shopping that the place offers without going to an international airport.

The stunning China Duty Free (CDF) Mall is the world’s largest duty free shopping centre, built at a cost of over five billion yuan ($800 million/Rs.51 billion), and is located in the Haitang Bay area next to the Westin hotel.

At 70,000 square metres spread over three floors, the CDF Mall integrates duty-free shopping, duty-paid shopping, restaurants, entertainment venues and cultural facilities.
Top of the line international brands have big outlets at the mall. The duty-free shopping done at the mall can be collected at the mall’s counters inside Sanya airport’s check-in.

The unique aesthetic design of the mall is inspired by the Haitang flower, the symbol of Sanya.

“Its atrium is formed by four unique curved surfaced steel structures, which enable natural light to filter into the mall and create a world-class shopping environment for the users. Its unique 3D free surfaced steel structure covers entrance arch-truss, link-bridges and other five individual skylights,” notes the mall management.

The mall opened in September and shuttle buses are available to ferry visitors and shoppers from hotels and resorts and even residential areas.

A popular place for eating and shopping in the Yalong Bay area is the ‘La Floret’ shopping village. It’s quite vibrant and has a number of eating joints which serve Chinese, Asian and international cuisines. Some eating joints even have open-air sitting with flashy lights and music bands making the evenings even livelier.

Sanya truly offers a lot as a tropical paradise and a shopping destination.
