The Living Room
Reminiscence of our Maritime Silk Road journey, our Living Room is a sophisticated and nostalgic space to while away the afternoon. Come by each day to exchange ideas with new-found friends and, if time allows, discover how to ferment Li Shalan rice wine and ethnic weaving techniques. Enticing curious minds further are a curation of books and artefacts that tell the tale of the historic trade route, with our Capella Culturist on hand to add their knowledge and reveal the secrets of Sanya and Tufu Bay.
The Living Room’s prime position facing the South China Sea gives you front row seats to nature’s beauty, where you can marvel at the amber glow of the sun setting. In the evening, you will find our mixologist guiding you through a Seafarer’s Journey with cocktails inspired by spices and voyages selected from the Captain’s Log Book.
Our Capella Culturist are storytellers at heart, forever armed with vast knowledge and experience of Sanya’s local culture and history. A quick word with them and you will uncover Sanya’s storied past as a bridge between the East and West, thanks to its privilege location on China’s ancient Maritime Silk Road.
