From Hong Kong-based AB Concept and Chicago-based architectural firm Goettsch Partners, the Rosewood Sanya, the second Rosewood property on China’s mainland, spans 40 oceanfront acres and boasts an art-centric environment inspired by the tropical setting.
A 23-foot-tall abstract floral oil painting from Argentinian artist Carlo Arnaiz dominates the arrival experience.
Located on the property’s 13th floor, the all-day dining concept East Kitchen features lounge-style seating and panoramic landscape and ocean views.
Installed within East Kitchen, artist Thomas Hill’s octopus sculpture is crafted from steel wire, steel sheets, silver solder, and gold flakes.
The sundrenched living room-like waiting lounge and tea bar is appointed with plush seating and shelves displaying books and artwork that convey a sense of home.
The lounge’s solid oak ceiling draws influence from local architectural traditions.
The lift lobby continues the contemporary aesthetic with bold black and white accents and natural light, which flood the space.
Local, earthen materials inject a modern sensibility across public spaces.
A soft neutral palette in the 246 guestrooms complements floor-to-ceiling views of the sea.
Each room incorporates wood, tribal totems, and aquatic elements for a sense of place.
