If you like to laze by the beach in the shade of stunning architecture, indulge in a stay at Park Hyatt’s first resort in China. The six modernist, arch-shaped buildings designed by Belgian architect Jean-Michel Gathy sit among lush greenery in Hainan Island, next to the picturesque Nan Hu Lak.
Linked by walkways adorned with paintings and sculptures, and crafted to allow for the abundant flow of qi, the grand mansion is nothing if not a peaceful haven for weary travellers. Only 207 rooms and villas occupy the 70,000 sq m stretch, so you get uninterrupted privacy to admire the gorgeous ocean views.
And if you feel like taking a dip, you’ve got five swimming pools to choose from. Other facilities include eight F&B venues, a bath house, a library and a tea house.
5 Sunny Bay Rd, Yalong Bay National Resort District (+86 898 8820 1234, sanya.park.hyatt.com). Rates start from $507 per night.
