Nine buildings at Sanya Beauty Hotel look like trees with fruit and branches 
It may look childish, but this Lego-looking hotel is showing the world how it’s done.
Sitting in a haven of rivers and mountains, the 500-acre complex has a record number of 6,668 rooms – and it still manages to fit in a shopping plaza, street of bars and theatre.
It has won the owners of Sanya Beauty Crown Hotel, in Sanya, south China, a catalogue of local and international awards since opening in late 2012.
And the nine buildings that look like huge trees with hanging fruit, branches, and roots made from the infamous toy blocks are the heart of its success.
Constructed by some of the world’s top architects, the ‘Nine Beautiful Trees’ consist of one 7-star hotel, one platinum 5-star hotel, one hotel-serviced apartment and six property hotels.
The little compartments that jut out to create the unusual tree structure almost double the space normally available in a building of that height.
It is an unconventional approach to broadening space to offer the maximum number of luxurious facilities for the city’s high-end visitors.
With idyllic green mountains and tropical weather, Sanya is one of the most popular destinations of coastal China drawing in swathes of yacht-riding holiday-makers.
This year, the owners announced plans to construct the largest yacht marina in downtown Sanya as part of an extension of the hotel.
The construction of the yacht port will offer ‘elite holiday experiences for high-end tourists from all over the world,’ the firm claims.
