The resort’s General Manager Edmund Ko celebrating with Lee Ann-Pace.
Sanya Marriott Resort & Spa recently welcomed acclaimed golfer Lee-Ann Pace. South African born Pace was in Hainan to compete in the Sanya Ladies Open 2013. The Sanya Ladies Open 2013 was held from Friday 25th to Sunday 27th October at Yalong Bay Golf Club, which is conveniently located opposite Sanya Marriott Resort & Spa.
Staying for a total of 7 nights, it was the second time that Pace had opted to stay with the popular beach resort. She chose to stay with Sanya Marriott Resort & Spa in 2010 and took first place in the Sanya Ladies Open 2010. This year she chose Marriott once again and was lucky enough to win the Sanya Ladies Open for a second time. 
Winning twice, staying twice, could be more than just coincidence. Famed for its world-class service and amazing beach, Sanya Marriott Resort & Spa seems to be a lucky place to stay. Before leaving the resort a joyful Pace was photographed with Edmund Ko, the resort’s General Manager commenting “I love it here. It’s a really nice feeling to return and win here again, let’s hope the good luck continues next year, I’ll be back for sure.”
