[photopress:kempinskisanyaen1.jpg,full,alignright]Kempinski Resort and Spa Sanya is planned to open on January 15, 2007. It has all that you would expect from such a spa — stunning bay views, indulgent spa treatments and exquisite furnishings.
The hotel has an unusual touch – it will have a mico-brewery on the premises producing Paulaner beer which is a most excellent drop. And the restaurants are of the Kempinski standard which has always been world renowned.
The resort is on a soft white sandy beach located on the most southern tip of China and is set in grounds which span 51.6 hectares of tropical greenery and palm trees.
Sanya is the southernmost city in Hainan province, China and has an estimated population of 150,000. We are not talking crowded urban landscapes. Sanya is the second most populous city (a polite term as a small town would be appopriate) of the island. There is a Sanya Phoenix International Airport which is also named Fenghuang Airport.
Some background: Kempinski is arguably the oldest luxury hotel collection in the world having acquired its first property in 1897. Kempinski Hotels now owns and operates an international portfolio of well over fifty hotels and a further 28 hotels are either under final development or construction in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
The majority of Kempinski is owned by the Crown Property Bureau of Thailand and is also a Member of the Global Hotel Alliance with Rydges Hotels and Wyndham Hotels and Resorts.
Totally useless but fascinating piece of trivia — the city of Sanya hosted the Miss World contest in 2003, 2004 and 2005.
