With views that stretch out forever across crystalline Clearwater Bay, and a superb championship golf course just next door, Raffles Hainan is the perfect escape for those looking for an energetic escapade, or just simple, perfect rest and relaxation.
Majestically positioned on this magical bay, this exquisitely appointed hotel combines light, open Balinese style architecture with an authentic local feel. Delivering relaxed luxury, and impeccable service, it is a worthy addition to the legacy that is Raffles.
For those devoted to the gentle art of doing nothing, Raffles Hainan has the best beach on the island - some say in the whole of China. Crystal clear water, a gentle sandy crescent and a glorious climate mean that the prayers of sun worshippers are answered daily.
For those more devoted to the art of golf, our championship course is challenging enough for experts, yet forgiving enough for those who are more relaxed in their technique. Literally on your doorstep, the beautifully designed fairways and greens offer more than enough distraction for many.
For those after a little adventure, the local area is diverse and well worth exploring. This 'Hawaii of the East' hosts an idyllic climate, and an exceptional coastline. Inland, Hainan's ethnic mix delivers diversity and contrast, arts and crafts, and cultural events unique to the island. A marina, water sport hub and a retail village nearby add to the mix.
Meanwhile, after a day of relaxation, exploration, or indeed frustration, the hotel's facilities are an oasis of luxurious comfort and style appreciated by the well travelled: generous 80 square metre rooms, all with a view across the glittering bay, 6 restaurants and bars, and a spectacular spa all mean that, should you wish, you never have to leave the hotel.
Our spa experience is second to none, a signature element of all Raffles hotels and resorts around the world. Deep, soothing massages and therapeutic treatments are designed to revive and relax, rejuvenate and replenish, soothe and salve.
Gastronomically, guests have six restaurants and bars to choose from, including a Chinese restaurant, all-day dining restaurant, pastry café, pool bar and grill, lobby lounge and, of course, a bar in which to enjoy the famous Singapore Sling. At Raffles we have always been proud of our food, and Hainan is no exception.
For the ultimate Hainan resort experience, combining heart and soul, mind and body, rest and a testing golf course, Raffles Hainan has no equal. Infused with the generous attentiveness of traditional Raffles service, and beautifully located to the far, warm south of China, this is an exceptional addition to the family that is Raffles, legendary purveyors of luxury to the well travelled for nearly a century.
