Haitang Bay, a rising high-end tourism resort, was a sleepy, little-known primitive fishing town 5 years ago when the Hainan government began to build it into a ‘National Coast’ in 2007.
Located 28km northeast of Sanya city and 45 minutes from Sanya International Airport, Haitang Bay is one of the famous bays in the city. The whole bay is divided into two administrative divisions. The section of bay located in Linshui County is called Tufu Bay and the other section within Sanya is called Haitang Bay.
Covering a total planning area of 98.78 square meters, Haitang Bay is vying to become the representative of "The Rise of Greens", with natural resources such as seawater, beaches, hot springs, islands and wetlands.
Haitang Bay, preserving the last unspoiled and undeveloped habitat in Sanya, will be positioned as a world-class paradise resort with three draw cards: the international luxury hotel cluster, world-class yachting leisure community and national-level medical and rehabilitation base.
According to the plans, a total of 32 high-end hotel brands will be laid out along the 21.8 21.8-kilometers-long coastline of Haitang Bay including the Atlantis project, with an investment of over RMB10 billion.
During the first ten months of 2011, six new lavish hotels and resorts threw open their doors along the beach of Hainan, including Conrad, Sheraton, Renaissance and Doubletree by Hilton and Kempinski.
The easiest way is by taxi which costs about CNY100 from downtown Sanya and CNY200 from Sanya Airport.
