"Sir, I brought you extra peaches." Yes he did when he brought us room service dinner; the server heard my comment around noon and heard it and delivered the fruit unasked for and much appreciated. And here were extra peaches. Very fine. Awesome service. Staying in a MO villa at Sanya is a constant celebration of beauty - the ocean... More

There is a reason that the Mandarin Oriental Sanya is the number one hotel in the city - the quality and standard of service is impeccable. Upon your arrival you are immediately transported into a comfortable relaxing environment - something unique to the Mandarin Oriental brand and severely lacking by the more trendy hotels of today. There is so much... More

My wife and I recently stayed at this marvellous resort . We found the service impeccable . An unknown member of staff even found and placed a book mark for me without asking - such was the attention to detail. I think credit must go to the manager Mr Paul Jackson because all of his team smiled and treated us... More

Arrived in a Typhoon but the welcome of the staff and the upgraded room put the weekend back on track. The resort design and number of swimming pools meant that we always found a quiet couple of sun loungers to relax. Restaurant and bar selection were great, fantastic meal at the Fresh looking out over the ocean. Staff were excellent... More

this hotel does absolutely everything right. It is beautifully designed and well laid out so that you can get plenty of privacy if you want it but join in with others if you don't. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Again, discrete when it needed but on hand when you wanted them. The rooms are beautifully designed and there... More

This was our third stay at the MO, Sanya. Clearly, we love this place, or we would not keep coming back! My husband and I have stayed at many gorgeous hotels in Asia, and this is one of our favorites- it's new, modern, elegant, spacious, and very beautifully manicured. The rooms are huge and very clean. As many have mentioned,... More

My wife and I stayed here for four nights in mid July. The entire experience was outstanding.

MO is amazing at Sanya! You've never seen this many pools. They wind all through the property. Beach is private, rooms are spacious and clean. Best breakfast I've had in Asia, it rivals buffets in Hawaii It's definitely a long trip to get there, but a wonderful property. Customer service is excellent. Josephine is a star!

The resort lives up to a 5 star rating in terms of amenities, rooms and food but where it really stands out is in customer service. Every staff member we encountered was friendly, accommodating and attentive to details. We travelled in the off season and were upgraded to a villa which was amazing. The bar for 5 star hotels in...
