The Sanya EDITION comprises 512 rooms, including 46 suites, and an additional 17 hotel villas in a terraced hillside, each one with a private pool and private outdoor space.
Throughout the property, there are several restaurants. The largest of these, Market at EDITION, references Sanya’s history as a trading port with a design evoking an old Chinese warehouse. Other dining options include The Jade Egret, which serves cocktails and a selection of appetisers, a curry restaurant and a rooftop bar.
Ian Schrager, the brand developer, said: "The Sanya EDITION was conceived for the China of today and the China of tomorrow. The resort is a unique sophisticated vision and embodiment of a cosmopolitan China for all the world to see."
