"The rapid growth of Starwood's luxury brands in China reflects the robust demand for high-end hospitality from an increasingly affluent market, where domestic travel continues to thrive. Having a presence on Hainan Island for more than 10 years, Starwood is inimitably positioned to cater to today's global travelers - delivering personalized service across a diverse portfolio of luxury hotels," said Qian Jin, President, Greater China, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Asia Pacific.
To begin, Starwood Hotels & Resort announced the opening of the W Retreat & Spa Sanya (450 rooms and 10 villas) and St Regis Sanya Haitang Bay Resort (400 rooms and 15 villas) at the North Wing of Haitang Bay, scheduled to open in 2019 and 2020 respectively. It will be the first W Retreat and the second St Regis property on the island.
