Ritz-Carlton is to open a second hotel complex on China’s only tropical island of Hainan, known as the Hawaii of the East, after signing a management agreement with a local development company.
The hotel group said the luxury development, which incorporates extensive meeting and conference facilities, underlines the provincial government’s drive to enhance the destination for international visitors.
The oceanfront complex is on Nanyan Bay on Hainan’s east coast near the city of Wanning, and will include the first Ritz-Carlton golf club in China. It will have an 18-hole course designed by Jack Nicklaus.
The resort, a partner for the Ritz-Carlton Sanya on Yalong Bay, is scheduled to open next year and will have 244 guestrooms and suites and 14 villas. Dining options include a Chinese restaurant, pool bar and grill, all-day dining restaurant and a lobby lounge.
Meetings and events organisers have a choice of venues between an 800sqm grand ballroom and 1,600sqm of other space while other features include a luxury spa, fitness centre and multiple swimming pools.
The Hainan government has highlighted Wanning as a new travel destination by completing infrastructure projects such as a new nearby airport, a high-speed railway and new roads to improve accessibility.
