The 238-room Hyatt Place Sanya in the Chinese southeastern island of Sanya is the tallest building in the city. Designed by Woods Bagot, it was built to be the oasis in the centre of ‘China’s Hawaii’.
The interior designs were completed by BLVD International, who has worked on Hyatt Place projects previously. Conceptualised around Hyatt Place’s young fashion and business casual style, the building’s designs draw on the visual symbols of Sanya culture.
Starting on the first floor, the lobby is a simple and comfortable space. It features wave-shaped curving ceiling, with sandstone texture walls and sculptures of fishtail shapes, a theme that runs throughout the property.
At the reception lobby, the wooden desk and staggered marbles establish a stylish business tone. Right beside the reception desk, there’s a bar area with a hemispherical chandelier, circling the bar.
Moving onto the top floor, there’s an open-air swimming pool which ripples and makes wave and whirlpools. At the highest point in Sanya City, there’s a rooftop garden terrace suitable for large gatherings and guests can look out over the window, viewing the tropical coastal city scenery.
