Sitting in a prime location on Hainan island's beautiful shoreline, 1 Hotel Haitang Bay, Sanya's design is a celebration of nature and sustainability. From dappled light filtering in through leaf-sheltered skylights to stacks of salvaged Chinese roof tiles echoing coastal cliff faces, the first Chinese resort from luxury brand US-based 1 Hotels draws its design inspiration from the rugged beauty of the island.

The eco-conscious architecture, designed by strategic planners Oval Partnership, combines locally sourced natural materials, such as lava stone and red cedar, with innovative green technologies. Paying homage to the tropical flora and fauna of Sanya's forests and the crystal-clear waters of the ocean, Singapore-based design studio FARM managed the interior design.

Encapsulating the biodiversity of the area's local species and natural surroundings, verdant landscaped gardens sprawl across the grounds and building exterior. A lush Mangrove Tree Courtyard offers a tranquil retreat, while Living Green Walls planted with local vegetation - such as ficus pumila and ferns - flourish across staggered roof terraces and semi-open courtyards. Additionally, the off-site farm showcases Hainan's seasonal produce.

Capturing the beauty of nature inside and out, the overall impact of the resort's design is a gorgeous retreat that revolves around Mother Nature and builds upon the area's rich resources.
