Travellers' Choice 2019 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
Inspired by the sea, The Sanya EDITION is an exceptional new destination on Hainan Island, just off the coast of Southern China. Water, a source of vitality and serenity, defines the lush 50-acre EDITION property, which features a spectacular private ocean along with two pools. All of the 500 guestrooms in the horseshoe-shaped hotel have ocean views. In addition, 17 hotel villas are nestled into a terraced hillside with ocean views, private pools, and pavilion spaces. Nearby attractions abound, such as shopping at luxury designer outlets, but once guests cross the entrance into The Sanya EDITION, they become part of an experience that is other-worldly.

It has a private ocean with a private beach. You also have an access to the real ocean, there is a long sandy beach with the hotels on the way, but the ocean is not quiet, so its much nicer to swim in the private ocean of The Edition

It's a large man made lake in the middle of the resort, you can rent kayaks and Peddle boats. Describing it as a private ocean is not an accurate description! The resort has nice pools, good for large families with young children.
