Capella Sanya offers 190 exquisitely-designed rooms and villas amid lush gardens, overlooking the South China Sea. Inspired by the beautiful elements of nature and the area’s famous and often mysterious silk road trade history, the accommodation was designed by renowned architects Jean-Michel Gathy and Bill Bensley, blending contemporary comforts with multiple opportunities to enjoy the peace and seclusion of the resort as a whole. 


Our elegantly-appointed rooms look across sprawling floral gardens or out across an azure sea. Clean, modern lines meet ornate Chinese craftsmanship in tranquil, earth-tone rooms designed with peace and relaxation in mind, coupled with state-of-the-art technology. Each room features either a private terrace or balcony. 


With a focus on beautiful surroundings and spacious privacy, each suite has luscious garden or far-reaching ocean views, right down to the sea-facing bathtub. Separate living and sleeping areas add to the home from home feel, with a expansive balcony with sun bed from which to enjoy the natural surroundings. The unique Chairman’s Penthouse also features a lap pool and has exclusive access via a private elevator. 


Private pools, terrace dining and immersive natural surroundings are the highlights of our contemporary, elegant villas. Luxurious design is at the forefront – calm, modern décor with accents of Chinese craftsmanship are combined with state-of-the-art technology, spacious living, sleeping and dining areas and opulent oversized bath tubs. Selected villas come with personal 24/7 Capella butler service. 


The only estate of its kind in Hainan, its manicured grounds, oversized swimming pool and gazebo make it the picture perfect venue for hosting intimate weddings and exclusive events.


The well-appointed Chairman’s Penthouse offers a private escape equipped with a personal elevator and lap pool. Boasting an oversized balcony overlooking Hainan Island's stunning Blessed Bay, the two bedroom abode with its bespoke decor touches is the last word in luxurious living.
