Atlantis Sanya > Located along Haitang

Bay, the Atlantis Sanya is a massive 1,314-room
hotel (with five underwater suites) that spans a
waterpark and retail and restaurant collection.
Sibling to Atlantis Ko Olina in Hawaii and
Dubai properties Atlantis, the Palm, and the
forthcoming Royal Atlantis Resort & Residences,
this outpost depicts the ancient myth of Atlantis
via a 48-story building with an undulating
façade united by two fin-like forms thanks to
architecture firm HOK. Featuring a podium

envisioned as spiraling vortexes of water, the
tower maximizes ocean views in guestrooms
and illuminates a connection to the aquatic life
that is "both symbolic and literal throughout the
property," says Greg Cranford, senior principal
at HOK's New York office. Having worked on the
Dubai resort, Jeffrey Beers, principal and founder
of New York-based Jeffrey Beers International,
was already immersed in the Atlantis ethos, but
for Sanya's interiors, it was time for a "new and
futuristic narrative that was aimed at a completely

different demographic," he says. Studying the
South China Sea's marine life led to dressing
public spaces and corridors in deep blue and
turquoise and etching purple sea fan coral and
Chinese lacebark elm onto glass and bronze
surfaces. Zitan, Hongmu, and Jichimu, hardwoods
native to the province, were also embraced.

Hyatt Place Sanya City Center >

Situated in the Woods Bagot-designed Sunshine
Insurance Financial Plaza, the tallest building
in Sanya, the 238-room Hyatt Place Sanya City
Center also calls to mind its locale. Honglei Liu,
cofounder of the Chinese firm BLVD International,
with offices in Beijing and Shenzhen, served as
design director for the project. For her, weaving
in "visual symbols like the beach and forest" was
important in capturing the essence of Sanya. A
hemispherical metal chandelier at reception and
a fan-shaped wooden grille in the restaurant, for
example, are married with elements like a seashell
ceiling, bamboo basket partitions, sandstone walls,
and fishing basket-shaped seating to "give people
a touch of the sea," adds Liu. Gravel, greenery, and
wood blur the indoors and outdoors in the open-air
pool area, while textural wave-patterned carpets
in guestrooms complement calming artwork and
mirror seaside vistas savored from the terrace. "We
used a fresh color palette, light gray interspersed
with blue and brown," says Liu. "Together they
create a dynamic resting place."
