The property is Thanyapura’s first branded resort in China, and the company expects other management agreements to follow as property developers around the world look for new, experience-driven concepts that inspire guests to optimise their lives, noted a release announcing the launch.

The Sanya resort will be located on about 58 hectares (about 362 rai) centrally located between Yalong and Haitang Bay and will be designed by Dallas-based architectural firm HKS, well known for its cutting edge sports stadiums, hotels and healthcare facilities.

The new property will offer 300 hotel rooms and 250 villas, world-class sports facilities featuring, swimming, running, tennis, cycling, soccer and multi-sport fitness; a lifestyle medicine clinic focusing on chronic disease reversal programmes; wellness centre; a members-only leisure club; multipurpose function rooms, as well as food and beverage and retail outlets.

Thanyapura’s flagship resort located in Phuket, Thailand, is recognised as a leading sports, health and wellness destination, attracting top athletes like Maria Sharapova, Jenson Button, two-time Ironman world champion, Patrick Lange, and national swim teams from around the world. Thanyapura Phuket is the only officially registered FINA training centre in Asia, noted the release.

Thanyapura Sanya will mirror many of the same pillars programmes offered in Phuket, such as sports training, camps, lifestyle improvement and executive health. The expansion into China strengthens Thanyapura’s position as a regional leader in active living and healthy lifestyle resort properties that incorporate green technologies, feature sustainable practices, and deliver personal optimisation. The resort will target families, groups, corporations and individuals looking for a healthy holiday destination where they can optimise their lives and lifestyle the release added.

“We are on the cusp of something very big,” said Philipp Graf von Hardenberg, President and CEO of Thanyapura World.

China is a massive market with unlimited potential, and we are entering at the right time in the right location and with right partners. The Sanya Thanyapura resort also supports the local government’s ambition to become a magnet destination for sports and health tourism,” he added.
