Our signature restaurant is a unique al fresco seafood grill with a beachfront setting. Located near the coral beach, Fresh is unlike any other seafood restaurant in Sanya. Completely al fresco, Fresh’s unique wood-and-coconut fired grill brings together the best cooking traditions of Southeast Asia and Europe. Its menu features both Asian and French Provençal entries and includes freshwater and saltwater seafood as well as shellfish, and a selection of premium meats and fresh poultry.

Stunning place for dinner

With a great view of the bay and a chance to check out Sanya's best hotel this is a great place for dinner. The restaurant area is relatively small and intimate and the staff does a great job. The prices are quite reasonable for an elite hotel in Sanya. The food was good but not exceptional but the... read more

If your in the resort, or in the area, eat here at least once. We had a birthday weekend in the resort and Fresh restaurant for dinner on birthday evening. The level of attention of the staff was superb but not too over the top, very professional. The food was excellent, I could not fault one moment.. Thank you for... More

Great food, great view, great service. It will hurt your wallet tho. I went my first night at the Mandarin and wanted to go back on my last, sadly it was closed. But it was just wonderful, even if it was small portions, you are really paying for the setting.

The service here is excellent, the ambiance (by the ocean) is hard to beat, and the food is very fresh... but I like my food with a bit more flavor.... definitely get the molten chocolate cake for dessert!

Fresh is my favourite restaurant in Sanya. The setting, atmosphere, food and service are amazing!! Strongly recommend to visit while in Sanya..... a perfect evening (sea side) is guaranteed. Personal favourite is the Suckling Pig for sharing and the scallops to start with.

We had fish and lamb and manilla clams. The clams were good, the fish and lamb were oily and the lamb tasted like it was cooked along side the fist. Wine list ridiculously expensive. But it had maybe the very best service I have ever had in seven years in China. The young lady who took care of us was... More

what could be better than eating brilliantly prepared seafood on a warm evening with the sea lapping up to the beach close to your table? If that sounds appealing then this is the place for you. The staff were very knowledgeable and friendly, food absolutely perfect and the setting is unbeatable. We really think that this restaurant is hard to... More

The atmosphere is wonderful, sitting at the beach and watching the sunset. But the food is not as good as we expected. The beef is overdone and the dessert is just OK. Since there is no air-con outside, it's still a bit too warm in the summer.
