A few criteria for our holidays were: proximity (less than 4 hours flight), no time difference, climate warm enough to enjoy swimming, preferably not crowd, modern convenience and not overly expensive. oceans and beach resorts but do not like crowds. After having checked the hotel rating and review on this website in advance, I decided to give the Renaissance a try for our family holidays, together with another family. We had such a great time from our first visit last October that we couldn't wait to go back again. Recently, this time we recommended this resort to 2 other families and altogether 4 families went together.
Flight time was a bit more than 3 hours, with no time difference and we were pleasantly surprised that unlike Yalong Bay, Renaissance (in Haitang Bay) is not crowded. The resort is a large compound on the beach front and other than breakfast, we had privacy and space in the resort itself and also on the beach which is very clean.
Few highlights: As for the hotel, it is new with many amenities including huge outdoor swimming facilities that consist of many pools with different designs facing the ocean that stretches for at least a few hundred meters from one end of the resort to the other and are linked together. There are separate areas for kids with slides, sprayers and a small sand beach. There are also quiet areas for adults to do laps. There are a few of Jacuzzis and also even a pool bar which we loved to go in the afternoon for a drink or a quick bite to eat. Service is professional and friendly from the moment we arrived at the airport with hotel pickup to our departure. For our needs and advice on recommendations, Alan who is the Director of Rooms is always available and happy to help. He is by far the most friendly and helpful Hotel Manager any guest can ask for. We enjoyed our spacious rooms facing the ocean with a large balcony very much. Things to do : The hotel offers activity programs for adults and for kids each day. We played water volleyball, went biking, also did some beach fishing. When the weather is too hot or rainy outside, our 8 year old daughter loves to go the kids club by the pool. She knows all the assistants in the club by name already in a few days. (They also know her too) There is also another club (R-cade) for older children that has games, videos, bowling and we also watched a few movies in the movie theater. Food: Breakfast was sumptuous and a great way to start a day. We enjoyed the different varieties of food so even after 10 days stay at the hotel, we are still enjoying it! I especially like the daily smoothie and the fresh juices. . It is a great resort and if only recommendation would be to expand the menu choices for dinner, and to be more reasonably priced such as simple barbeques outside. All the families had a good time and our daughter has asked that she spends her summer vacation there again :)
