Located along the pristine coastline of Blessed Bay on Hainan Island, Capella Sanya is the new luxury landmark in China’s premier resort destination.  A tropical paradise unlike any others, its fine sandy beach meets the clear waters of the South China Sea promising a delightful experience of bespoke hospitality and treasured memories.  In this magnificent environment, Capella Sanya celebrates the joys of family, romance and personal indulgence through its carefully curated range of offerings and services.



Offering panoramic views of the South China Sea, Capella Sanya is the result of a brilliant collaboration between two of the world's most celebrated designers: Jean-Michel Gathy and Bill Bensley.  With their combined creative genius, Capella Sanya is a showcase of spectacular luxurious hospitality, landscape design and recreational facilities.  While the hotel environment is markedly modern and contemporary, it is also inspired by the historic Silk Road sea trade route which the island of Hainan features prominently, in its various touch points. The design for Capella Sanya is informed and enriched by the cultural heritage of multi-ethnic communities that have left their marks on the lives of Chinese traders of yore along this historic trade route.
