I had no expectation when going to Sun Island. Sun Island was my D plan and I had never heard about it after the usual family resorts of such (Sheshan Meridien and Sofitel). I prepared myself for the worst but at least my friend owns the Italian restaurant there so worst case I would have spent the weekend enjoying the... More

The hotel is located on a green island, about 45 minutes drive away from Shanghai. It is a great getaway for a weekend, either with family or friends. They have plenty of fun activities to fill up a day or two, but it will also cost you a lot of money. Excellent breakfast buffet included. The rooms are a bit... More

My wife prepared a surprised for our Wedding Anniversary and we were excited to get out from the noisy Shanghai. That´s true, the environment itself is nice, full of peace, little birds chirping and green areas, but that´s all! From outside was nice, but then you have to face the reality. We were welcome at the reception by a girl... More

Just about an hour from Shanghai airport and from the city itself, surrounded by lush countryside is this idyllic resort with golf course, health spa, organic farm and lovely rooms. I attended the Mahota Symposium here, hosted by Sun Island and this year's topic on Business Families was extremely well done. The opening banquet and all buffet meals and tea... More

We spent a week at this resort. The sun island itself is a isolated island. So you can escape from the Chinese town/village and/or people. As we are members of the Interval International, we can use outdoor wave pool and indoor pool. They were great. When we use the wave pool, we were the only guests. But they operated the... More

We are in the midst of a 7 night stay in a 2 bedroom villa. So far, everything has been good. The management and staff have been accommodating and helpful. We are interval members so we get free access to the wave pool daily, but only 3 hours. We also get discounts off the FnB, go kart, horse riding etc.... More

Spent a week at Sun Island and was pleased with the service level, accommodation and meal quality. It was March in Shanghai so a little chilly but the area around Sun Island more than compensated for the temperatures. Lots to see and do both in the resort itself and in the nearby neighbourhood. The old village is a must. I... More

Took a short trip to Shanghai and picked this hotel as a hideaway for two nights. As I'm not a golf player there is honestly not much to do, especially when all amenities are monopolised and overcharging, and location of this hotel quite remote.
