Crystal-clear water, white sand beaches and lush green mountains form the back-drop for the elegantly styled architecture of the St. Regis Resort Hotel on Yalong Bay, Sanya. The hotel’s interiors celebrate the sea, sand, marina and nautical elements in a casual, sophisticated and elegant environment. The impressive Porte Cochere and Main Lobby with their clean-lined voluminous spaces are appointed with yacht-like wood finishes, sand-colored exotic stones, and furnishings upholstered in fabrics found on luxurious ocean liners. Attention to detailing in finely finished woodwork and polished metal works contrasts with rough cut stone work to create an interesting juxtaposition that is both luxurious and relaxing and set the tone for signature St Regis moments . Throughout the public spaces, guestrooms and villas, timeless color palettes-creamy neutral textures, with supporting contrasting rich raw silks and tonal damasks- offer simple, elegant environments reminiscent to those found in a finely appointed clubhouse, yacht, or trans-ocean ships of the past. The stately Grand Ballroom with fabric-wrapped drum shade pendants evoking sail details, lacquered wood and polished stone will definitely suit the functions of the “Who’s Who” in the yachting community.
