A Modern Re-Interpretation of the Myth of Atlantis

Atlantis Sanya Resort
Hainan, China

“This resort is set to become a new landmark in China and will introduce the fun, interactive entertainment experiences at the heart of the Atlantis philosophy.”

Alan Leibman
Chief Executive Officer, Kerzner International Holdings Limited

The architectural design for this world-class Atlantis Sanya destination re-interprets the myth of Atlantis on Hainan Island.

Expected to open in 2018, the luxury resort will offer guests interactive, larger-than-life experiences including the Aquaventure Waterpark, lagoons, fresh and salt water pools, marine and educational exhibits, entertainment, spa treatments, world-class dining experiences and luxurious accommodations.

The resort is along the Haitang Bay National Coast, overlooking the South China Sea.

The design for Atlantis Sanya has been inspired by the local culture as well as the Atlantis brand hallmarks of ocean and marine life. The curvilinear design of the two giant steel fins creates a beacon that appears to emerge from the horizon.

The design team is collaborating with Fosun International Limited, the leading non-state owned enterprise in China, and Kerzner International Holdings Limited, renowned international developer and operator of destination resorts. It will be the first Atlantis resort in China.
