A unique feature of The Sanya EDITION is the expansive private ocean filled with seawater which is regularly treated and recycled to maintain its quality. It is a popular venue for water activities such as sail-boating, paddle-boarding, kayaking and water-biking. Surrounding the private ocean are open spaces with local trees and flowering plants.


With a total of five dining outlets focusing on specialty cuisines, The Sanya EDITION is a dining destination on its own. The Sanya EDITION is the only resort in Sanya with all of its dining outlets ranking among the top 10 best restaurants in Sanya according to TripAdvisor.

  • Market at EDITION - the resort's all-day dining restaurant serving local and international cuisines, open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner

Xian Hai by the Sea | The Sanya EDITION

During my stay at The Sanya EDITION, Xian Hai by the Sea ranked as number 1 among all restaurants in Sanya according to TripAdvisor. This has made the restaurant extremely popular among tourists. Guests from other resorts even came to The Sanya EDITION just to try out this restaurant.

The quality of dishes served at Xian Hai by the Sea lives up to its popularity. Some of the must-try dishes include the Double-boiled Fish Maw with Sea Conch and Cordyceps Flower in Coconut Water, the Marinated Wenchang Chicken, the Stir-fried Local Mango Clams with Spicy Sauce, and the Mango Pudding with Avocado Puree and Glutinous Rice Ball.


Rooftop Bar | The Sanya EDITION

Perched on the highest floor of the resort, Rooftop Bar is one of the best places in the resort to enjoy a panoramic view of the South China Sea. It is popular among guests for afternoon tea or sundowner sessions. In the evening, guests can loosen up while enjoying innovative cocktails and tapas.

Every EDITION property has its own signature cocktail served in an animal-shaped copper container. When staying at The Sanya EDITION, make sure that you try the Show Me the Bunny. This signature drink of The Sanya EDITION has a mix of Elyx Vodka, Apricot Brandy, Campari, Carrot Juice, and Lemon Juice, and is served in a rabbit-shaped copper container.


Market at EDITION is the all-day dining restaurant of the resort. Inspires by the maritime trading history of Hainan, the interior of the restaurant is designed with a warehouse concept that transports the dining guests to the time when products from all over Asia were traded in the coastal towns of Hainan.


Guests who booked a bed & breakfast room package can enjoy the buffet breakfast at Market at EDITION. Guests can choose from local and regional Chinese, Asian and Western dishes freshly prepared at the live cooking stations. The restaurant's attentive staff are always ready to assist you with your needs.

My top favorite from the buffet breakfast is the Bao Luo Fen (抱罗粉). It is a popular rice noodle dish in Hainan usually eaten during breakfast. It is topped with pickled vegetables and peanuts and mixed with a thick broth.


A great way to relax while staying at The Sanya EDITION is to go for an indulging massage at The Spa at The Sanya EDITION. Guests can choose among full-body massages, body treatments, and facial care. The spa has 11 spacious treatment rooms and suites which are surrounded by open spaces and lush gardens.

While at the spa, guests can also use the aromatherapy steam room, the sauna, and the hydrotherapy pool. The spa's reception area also has a retail store where guests can purchase exclusive EDITION body products and fragrances.

With a 24-hour Fitness Center, guests can keep physically fit during their stay at the resort. It features state-of-the-art weight training and cardio equipment. The resort's wide-open spaces are also an ideal venue for outdoor exercises or yoga.

Guests can also jog along the pathway surrounding the private ocean. If swimming is your preferred morning exercise, you can do morning laps at the crescent-shaped swimming pool located next to the private ocean.

With a beachfront stretching 48.2 kilometers, guests may also choose to jog along the white sand beach, or simply take a leisurely stroll while admiring the clear blue waters of the sea. Beach games such as volleyball, frisbee gliding or kite flying are also popular among families and friends.


People in Hainan for me are the most friendly people in China. This innate character of the locals coupled with the high standard of customer service of the EDITION brand brings about the warmest, friendliest and most genuine hospitality. Having said this, The Sanya EDITION is definitely your top choice for a luxurious and memorable holiday in Sanya.
