Qing Shui Bay Resort In Sanya Follows Previous Jumeirah Agreements In Shanghai, Guangzhou and Macau
Reuters reports today that Dubai’s Jumeirah Group has just signed an agreement with Hong Kong-based Agile Property Holdings to manage the new Jumeirah Qing Shui Bay Resort in Sanya, Hainan province — the southern island known by many as the “Hawaii of China.”
The new beach resort will join a number of other luxury hotels in the area, including the Ritz-Carlton, Banyan Tree, Le Méridien and Mandarin Oriental, and will be comprised of a 250-room hotel and 50 private villas. The resort is slated to open in 2013.
Although specifics on the cost of the project have not yet been released, AME Info sheds some additional light on the new project:
Designed by WATG Architects and LTW Design, the luxury resort will comprise a 250 room hotel and 50 private villas. Guests will have access to Hainan Clearwater Bay’s 12-kilometre long beach of pure white sand, six restaurants and cafés, a waterfront conference centre, and Talise, Jumeirah’s signature spa. Guests will also enjoy the panoramic views from a spectacular off-shore point that is sure to be one of the defining landmarks of the resort.
Located one hour by plane from Hong Kong and 2.5 hours away from Shanghai, the greater Sanya area is the premier beach resort destination in China. Clearwater Bay – Qingshui Wan in Chinese – is one of the most exclusive beaches in the greater Sanya area and Jumeirah Qing Shui Bay Resort is planned to be the most luxurious and exclusive resort within the Agile Clearwater Bay development. The attractive waterfront location will be complemented by championship-quality golf courses surrounding the resort.
Commenting on the partnership, Mr Chen Zhuo Lin, Chairman of the Agile Group, said, ‘We are delighted to establish a partnership with Jumeirah, which is already well-known for Burj Al Arab, the icon of Dubai. We are honoured to be the first beach resort partner of Jumeirah in mainland China. Agile is committed to developing Hainan Clearwater Bay into a world-class, large-scale resort and residential community. Our cooperation with Jumeirah will add a new landmark to Hainan Clearwater Bay, while enhancing the quality of the entire project. This will enable us to come a step closer to achieving our goal: to become an international tourism and resort community,’ he added. ‘Both of our enterprises will strive for perfection in hotel management and achieve synergies with a view to developing Hainan Clearwater Bay into an integrated, large-scale international resort and residential community, thus maximising returns for shareholders and clients.’
