Marriott International is set to open Xiangshui Bay Marriott Resort & Spa, a new beach resort under the flagship Marriott Hotels brand on Southern China’s tropical holiday island of Hainan. The property will add to Marriott Hotel’s growing portfolio of resorts in major leisure destinations around the world.
The design of Xiangshui Bay Marriott Resort & Spa is inspired by the pristine natural environment of Xiangshui Bay Scenery Area on the south-east coast of ‘China’s Hawaii.’
The resort is situated along an unspoiled stretch of sun-kissed beaches 60 kms from Sanya. Opening in two phases, with the final phase completed in early 2017, the 144-room resort is inviting with a strong residential ambiance styled for relaxed vacations with its own secluded beach.
With ocean views and balconies overlooking the South China Sea, spacious guest rooms of 55 sqm, and seven Panorama Ocean View Suites of 135 sqm that feature deluxe bathrooms with marble finish, oversized soaking tubs and rainforest showers.
The rooms are designed with an upgraded look with tailored solutions that are as inventive as the guest, including large 49 inch LCD TVs, high-speed internet and work surfaces providing flexibility to freely move and use technology wherever the guest desires.
“We want our guests to experience forward-thinking, aesthetically pleasing spaces that help foster their inventive nature,” said Matthew Carroll, vice president, Marriott Hotels.
“Marriott Hotels has consistently pushed the boundaries of innovation in travel to create experiences that inspire and push our guests’ creativity.”
“We are excited to bring a unique perspective to the local hotel scene in Xiangshui Bay, while providing guests fresh opportunities to rediscover Hainan,” says Gary Tay, Resident Manager of Xiangshui Bay Marriott Resort & Spa.
Upon completion, eight vibrant restaurants and bars will be headlined by modern Chinese destination restaurantNew Dynasty, specialising in Cantonese seafood, BBQ and dim sum along with local Hainanese cuisine, with an extensive wine cellar and whisky collection.
Asia Bistro showcases Chinese, South East Asian and western buffet favorites with live cooking stations against the backdrop of an “Asian grocery store”. City Bistro is a dramatic all-day dining experience with live cooking stations for Chinese and international favourites such as Italian pasta and pizza, classic desserts and an extensive cheese selection.
Seafood grill Fish House is inspired by an Asian fishing village serving freshly-caught seafood with a large selection of wine, beers and signature sake cocktails. Cocktails, fish and fun can be found at the casual poolside grill Fish Bar, serving simple seafood, burgers and snacks with an oyster bar.
