We were on the beach in Sanya just as the sun was going down and could see Phoenix Island in the distance so decided to make the journey over there but couldn't get past the bridge. Close up they reminded us of the Burj in Dubai. They look great when lit up at night. Not all five buildings are open... More

It's beautiful artificial island in Sanya. Some people do wedding shooting there. It's nice to observe hotels shining at night.

These buildings are absolutely stunning in the day time. At night they come completely alive with lighting. They are my most photographed place on my trip.

Amazing views day and night. From the Sanya Bay side the light show that the buildings put on is spectacular and worth a visit to the Sanya Bay beach at night to see it.

Phoenix island has the tall towers that you can see from many places in Sanya but there is nothing to do or see on that island. You get a decent view of Sanya Bay but that is it. It is more a residential area that is not fully developed yet. No point to go there.

I loved this hotel! The moment I saw the spectacular lights at night I was drawn to this place. Travelling alone I imagined that the price would be too much to consider staying here. I was looking for a nice place near Sanya Bay and I saw this on Ctrip for only ¥ 268. I booked it on line and... More
