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

You will not believe you are in China here. It is as stunning as any resort we've stayed in including in the Philippines, Thailand and Bali.

My wife and I stayed here for four nights in mid July. The entire experience was outstanding. On arrival we were greeted by smiling and lovely staff who placed bouquets of orchid flowers around our necks. We were then taken down stairs to the check in area, where we were seated and served cold tea (it was a very hot... More

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! She made every detail... More

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...

The resort is amazing. The staff is great and helpful. We were always treated with smiles, which shows just how well their attitudes are. The food is delicious, and I had the best meals that were superior to other hotel meals. The design of the villa is great and is very relaxing. We also had our own private pool! The... More

Had a last minute desire to get away: catch some rays, read a book & be pampered in quiet way. Booked a garden terrace room with Coral Bay Package. Hotel arranged transportation upon arrival at airport (Mercedez van) was swift. Upon arrival I was greated with flowers, cool towel & drink and learned I was upgraded to ocean breeze room.... More

We enjoy our 4-night stay with this beautiful beach-garden hotel most of the time. What we love about the place is: 1. It's more like a huge garden by the beach than the usual tall building hotels. There are pools, ponds, teahouse and restaurants with a view of the bay, surrounded by fragrant trees and flowers. We feel really relaxed... More

When we were looking for a resort in Sanya, Ritz Carlton and Mandarin Oriental was most rated ones. We couldnt decide where to stay and called both of them for information. We knew we want a villa. First we called Mandarin, ask them our expectations, and they said 'ofcourse, everything you want.' Then we called Ritz, they said 'no or... More
