Had a wonderful time at sun island. The staff were very friendly and we got a lot of assistance from the customer service group. The resort is a fair way from Shanghai but it's locationhas a nice rural feel and you are still able to visit a number of quaint river towns. The transport to Shanghai via the public buses... More

The hotel (except the room) is very nice and the hotel staff are friendly. There is a very nice golf course. Everything is good apart from the bed which is very hard and uncomfortable. Hence, we did not sleep well during our 1-week stay. Another thing I did not like was the room service: On the last day before we... More

We are back again for a week this summer. The villa is nicely decorated, better than last time. Shuttle bus super convenient. Only complaint is the slides at the wave pool are closed the whole week we will be here. Apparently closed since early July and looks like nothing is being done to repair it.

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
