Designed by legendary architect Jean-Michel Gathy, Capella Sanya, the new benchmark for China's luxury beach resorts from the Capella brand opened its doors to guests in January 2019. The resort draws on the adventures of Chinese traders along the legendary Maritime Silk Route - from décor, cuisine and menu design to landscaping, recreational activities and spa - taking guests on their own extraordinary journey.
Located on the tropical coastline of Blessed Bay on Hainan Island, Capella Sanya sets new standards in luxury with 190 exquisitely designed rooms and six private villas amid lush gardens overlooking the turquoise South China Sea. With its innovative design by Jean-Michel Gathy and luxurious authentic cultural references, Capella Sanya introduces extensive guest experiences to China's leading resort destination.
Visionary Architecture & Design By Jean-Michel Gathy
Principal designer at DENNISTON - one of the world's leading hospitality design firms - Jean-Michel Gathy has masterminded multiple authentic design references to Chinese culture throughout the resort. Such references include the Feng-Shui principles applied to
the lobby, water features, large meditative spaces and the use of vibrant red to represent the resort. Red is a favourite symbolic colour in China, which symbolises energy - as well as wealth - reflecting the holiday spirit of guests at Capella Sanya. Key to Gathy's iconic style is this sense of serenity as he blends traditional Chinese cultural references with luxurious, contemporary design.
VTEL Lighting was very proud to contribute for a part of this marvellous architecture design as we manufactured all lighting fixture used in the hotel. It shows our ability to turn any designer' ideas into reality, and fulfil any client's requirements.
