After a very stressful year we decided to try Renaissance Sanya for a vacation, arriving at the airport we were met by the very friendly and efficient staff who escorted us back to the magnificent hotel. The check in was smooth sailing and we were escorted to our beautiful suite with the most amazing ocean views . After a long flight we decided to try out the Room service and we were really surprised not only by the quality of the food but also by the prompt and efficient service . The holiday continued with the most amazing food served for breakfast , lunch & dinner ! We tried all of the beautiful restaurants &every night we had a favourite , we experienced the freshest of seafood , superb Lamb & Steak , Chinese cuisine fit for a king & a buffet that had something for everyone ! I must mention the Creme Brûlée , it's the best I've ever tasted . Speaking only English ourselves the staff were very easy to communicate with and we encountered no problems . The beach & pool areas are so beautiful maintained and the gardens are magnificent . We were lucky to spend a few weeks at this wonderful resort & are in fact planning a return visit !

We have been to the Renaissance Resort and Spa before and it continues to be a highlight of our trips to China. The management have this place running superbly after just a year since opening. It is handy to some very good golf courses.

The staff are very friendly and we had no trouble communicating in English.

All the restaurants met our expectations and especially the Star Fish Market which became our favourite.

I loved the vast swimming pool with its waterfalls and swim-up bar. It must be the biggest in China!

We'll be back for another restful time where the weather in February was just ideal and everything was without hassle before we headed to the cold of the major cities Shanghai and Beijing.

Room Tip: The villas are great if you are travelling in a large family group

It is a beautiful hotel , the room are big and well decorated, the food is really good( there is only 3 restaurant then after one week you wish for a little more variety) but the good taste of the food make you forget it... Everything was perfect the only thing that i didint like was that there is a lot of things that are only accesible outside the site as: seadoo,diving and the cars( the cars are not exclusive to the hotel and have to be pay by cash only.The staff was great and the complex wonderful,the beach is really beautiful , and every guest have a good service at any hours of the day . I highly reccomend this hotel. But be aware that if you planed to do a lot of activities you better go to another resort, this resort is a paradise for those who ant relax.

Room Tip: Try to have a room in the C section (8 floor ) it is the best position (after the presidential suite of course)

This is one of the most amazing and beautiful hotels i have ever stayed in. From the moment you arrive the foyer will take your breath away, the only way I can describe it, its like being in a chinese palace. This is paradise!
We were travelling as a family with young children, we decided to stay in the villas. The villa is perfect for any family, they have 2 bedrooms, kitchenette, 3 bathrooms ( 2 with spa baths), large private plunge pool, seperate lounge room and garden. They are gorgeous...and HUGE! The quality and amentites in the villa are 5 star+. The turndown service will surprise, not to mention the daily fruit platter. Fantastic room for families.
We took advantage of the kids club "R Kids"...... This has the best facilities and staff I have ever seen. It has many themed rooms and an outdoor area to keep the children intrigued and happy for hours.
If you have older children (or husbands) the resort has "R cade" which has a bowling alley, movie theatre, WII and xbox plus more...great fun for young and old.
The pool areas are gorgeous with large pools that weave through the resort. There is a seperate beach area and water-slides into the pool for the children, parents can relax watching their children enjoy.
The beach and cabannas are postcard perfect!
The hotel offers a luxury coach service into Sanya for any shopping you may want to do, I recommend this.
We loved all the resturants, but I highly recommend Star Fish Market, the seafood platter is so Yummy!
You will not want to leave it has everything.....This resort needs to be seen to be beleived!

Room Tip: If you are travelling as a family the villa is a must, outstanding value!
