My friend and I stayed in this resort for 3 nights from 2-5 October 2014. We arrived separately as we flew in from different countries. We booked the club room which has a nice classic interior and furnishing, free wifi (although connection is slow but acceptable since there's no charge), a very nice outdoor patio with comfy sofa beds and...

The hotel has a beach shared with a neighboring hotel. So it is generally good for enjoying yourself with sun and sea while avoiding the crowds at the public beaches. The Asian restaurant is the best in-hotel diner. We tried South East Asian, Japanese and Chinese, and they are all good. However, the Mediterranean which offers Western cuisine is rather... More

Superior resort with a plenty of beach amenities, actually the see is not as beautiful as the hotel. Rich breakfast, warm service and friendly welcome from the staff. It's not very easy to find a cab if you want to go sightseeing.

Wow! Escaping the Smog-Rain-Humidity of Shanghai for a four day visit to Sanya and the Intercontinental Resort was like getting your batteries recharged in every way possible. The resort itself is a fabulous combination of modern design set along its own private cove and beach. The beach villa was to die for providing amazing indoor and outdoor spaces and its... More

Took my mom and my 83-year-old granny to the IC resort and felt I'd done the right thing. We each got a nice cup of mango juice and a beautiful orchid bracelet at the front desk, and then found out a free upgrade to the WOWing ocean view room was available. The rooms were chic and homely at the same... More

We have stayed at the intercontinental sanya resort for 4 nights in april. The resort is very big, the staff provide these club electro cars you can call everywhere to take you from one place to another even if it isn't that far.

Lovely few days spent with the family, the children loved the water slide. 4 great restaurants to eat in. A must is - hire the bikes and explore the local area. Service was excellent. A great place to escape if you live in a china city! Very relaxing no crowds.
