Prominent architectural firm Steelman Partners has broken ground on its latest project in Asia – Haitang Bay 5-Star Resort Hotel. Situated in the southern city of Sanya on the tropical Hainan Island, this is one of a number of major projects that Steelman Partners has been contracted to design in Asia.

Both the conceptual and schematic design of this extensive luxury resort project, developed by Sanya GaoSheng Investment Company Limited, has been devised by Steelman Partners.

The resort will comprise two main hotel buildings, totaling 700 rooms, covering a 113,500 square meter area, which is to be constructed in two phases.

Phase 1 of the resort, which will consist of a 23 floor hotel building, luxury spa, fitness centre and private villas, is expected to open in March 2011. Phase 2 will include the second hotel building as well as a retail and bar street.

Once complete this luxury hotel will offer travellers ocean view hotel guestrooms, grand ballrooms, convention centers, international restaurants, recreational pools and even a wedding chapel. Surrounding the two main hotel structures the green, lush landscape will be preserved, into which modern private villas will be merged to maintain a sense of free flowing natural beauty.

Haitang Bay Resort Hotel is one of a number of hotel projects in an extensive development of the region, involving some of the most respected hospitality brands in the world. The resort will take an innovative appearance as the structures are designed to resemble a series of flowers rising seamlessly from the ocean in a  simple, yet elegant arc. This effect will be achieved through the design of the buildings in an attempt to achieve a sense of motion towards climax. Phase 2 of the resort will be lower, gradually increasing in height in an arch towards Phase 1 creating a feeling of continuous movement, which culminates with the ‘anchor’ at 96 meters high.

“With the design of this project we really wanted to do justice to the development that’s happening in Sanya. This is a really significant period for the region and we wanted to mirror the buzzing excitement of the area, and reflect this is the design of the structures, while also keeping it consistent with the natural beauty of the area,” said Paul Steelman, Founder and CEO of the architectural firm.
