The Sanya Four Seasons Hotel is the center piece of the Sanya Palm Springs International Golf Resort and will be the first Four Seasons Resort Hotel in China. EKISTICS assisted in the selection of the site and was instrumental in the site planning and design development of the hotel. It is situated in a private enclosed bay with a 600 meter long private pristine white sandy beach defined by mountain ridges on either side. The site is accessed along an isolated winding hillside road that pinches through the mountains as it arrives at this spectacular site. The 350 room hotel is positioned on a unique promontory above the beach offering expansive views across the bay and surrounding ocean landscape and has been configured as a series of smaller building masses containing both guest accommodation and hotel amenities that fit into the natural landscape creating a hotel experience that celebrates and capitalizes on the unique attributes of the context. Hotel guests can enjoy beautiful views of the South China Sea from every room and bungalow. The hotel also overlooks the Palm Springs golf course (designed by EKISTICS) and is fully integrated with a neighbourhood of 50 privately owned Four Seasons-Branded villas, a central landscape park and a full service beach club.
