Yalong Bay is one of China's top tourist destinations - a much-loved coastal experience that is often compared to Hawaii, due to its tropical seaside lifestyle, pristine white sand beaches, swaying palm trees, azure blue water, and gentle mountain vistas. The new Swissôtel & Grand Mercure hotels will reside in the midst of the Yalong Bay National Tourist Resort, within the modern and highly popular Baihua Valley Commercial Center, which offers a vibrant and fast-growing neighborhood of local hotspots, restaurants, shopping, and entertainment.

The Swissôtel Sanya Yalong Bay will include 460 Swissôtel guestrooms and suites styled with intelligent design, quality craftsmanship and mindful approach to sustainability. The Hotel will also feature a 1,300 sqm ballroom, an executive lounge, and flexible meeting and event spaces that will be ideal for business gatherings and family celebrations. Guests will enjoy a relaxed and leisurely experience, with multiple restaurants, bars, wellness facilities and a kids' club.

Grand Mercure Sanya Yalong Bay will provide 124 charming and inviting rooms and suiteswith generous private space for families and friend groups, or those looking for extra space to combine their work with leisure time. The sprawling complex resort will offer stunning views of Yalong Bay, with a beautiful white sand beach just down the road from the property.

Yalong Bay is a popular destination for business travelers and executive retreats, as the district continues to increase its trade and economic openness, while encouraging ecological and innovative development. This is further supported by Hainan's status as a free trade zone, which is set to become a world-class free-trade hub and centre for offshore financing and duty-free shopping.

Protecting the natural ecosystems and biodiversity of Hainan Island is of utmost importance to Accor. From safeguarding the natural environment around its hotels to supporting the health and integrity of the island's food chain, Accor is committed to the conservation of nature and the resources of Hainan Island. The new Swissôtel Sanya Yalong Bay and Grand Mercure Sanya Yalong Bay hotels will abide by Accor's sustainable business model in Greater China, which aims to lower carbon emissions, reduce food waste, and shift consumer mindsets.
