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. The main pool is probably the lap pool, which was a little boring. The fancier pool (and... More

I loved this hotel. My friend and I got a nice water view room with a GORGEOUS view of the bay. The room couldn't be faulted in any way. Setting of the hotel is beautiful, amenities are good, and most of the staff were really nice. What spoiled my weekend for me was the clientele. Firstly, there were bratty little... More

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.

Rooms were large and had the basic amenities that you would expect from a five-star hotel. Service was a bit patchy depending on how harassed the staff were. There was a marked improvement in service standards after the busy weekend, Overall, service level was not on par with other Inter Continental asian hotels. One thing that irked me was the... More
