Sanya, China, January 30, 2018 – The Spring Festival is a time cherished for bringing blessings and abundance to everyone. It also is synonymous with holiday season and an opportunity to either travel, or congregate with family and friends. In order for Chinese travelers to preserve traditions while enjoying some great family time, The Ritz-Carlton Sanya, Yalong Bay has created the 8-Sensation Experience. It fosters a sense of:

  • Bewilderment

Throughout the Spring Festival, the high-ceiling lobby will be reddened with thousands of traditional Chinese lanterns, all enclosing a fun challenging puzzle. And on March 2nd, from 7 to 8 p.m., guests will add their personal style to the decoration with a complimentary lantern making and wish hanging activity.

  • Curiosity

In the lush greenery of The Ritz Carlton Sanya, Yalong Bay, there are many places of wonder, one of which is Uncle Martin’s Secret Garden, where features fruits, vegetables and a dozen of creatures. Parents can revisit their childhood here or simply bring their children to say hello to their natural neighbors.

And on the beach front, under the moonlight, the bravest explorers (aged 4 to 10) will discover the natural habitat of the South China Sea crab in a specially guided activity, every Friday and Saturday from 8 to 9 p.m.

  • Bonding

At Fresh 8 restaurant, hundreds of international cuisines, local and regional favorites, and mouthwatering live cooking stations will create an occasion for the whole family to share a convivial breakfast.

After breakfast, families can pedal in sync during a biking tour of Yalong Bay (every Monday and Friday), or move harmoniously through a family Tai Chi session (Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday) from 9 to 9:45 a.m.

As the tradition goes, it might as well bring some good luck for the year ahead to catch a big fish at the hotel’s lakeside, every Tuesday and Sunday from 4 to 4:45 p.m. And when the sun sets, the light of a movie under the stars will invite for more evasion from 7:30 p.m. (every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday).

  • Belonging

While on holidays, families can still perpetuate the tradition of Chinese New Year on February 16, at 9:58 a.m. The occasion to welcome some good luck and prosperity throughout the year by setting off firecrackers, worshiping the fortune of God, attending the spectacular dragon and lion dance, and receiving red envelopes!

Every morning of the Spring Festival, families can get their hands sticky in a dumpling making station at Fresh 8 restaurant. And on Wednesdays, from 4 to 4:45 p.m., or on Saturdays, from 3 to 3:45 p.m., children will learn how to create their own Chinese New Year’s scrolls.

  • Prosperity

Chinese New Year’s Eve dinner is meant to be the most important meal of the year. Executive Chinese Chef Michael Liang will demonstrate his culinary excellence in a series of dedicated menus. These lucky foods and auspiciously prepared dishes, are served family style in the convivial ambience of Pearl restaurant and its private dining rooms. Starting from RMB 688 per person for a prosperous eight-course menu!

  • Spirituality

Located against the dramatic backdrop of South China Sea, Nanshan is a site of cult and meditation that will bring families closer, through its vast historical heritage temples. It also features the highest Kwan-Yin statue to date, a 108-meter tall sea-based monument that is said to realize any wish. In order to visit this sacred site at their own pace, and explore more of Hainan’s beautiful coastline or inland, guests will be able to reserve one of the hotel’s Smart For Four vehicles at an exclusive rate.

  • Excitement

Available throughout the Spring Festival, the Ritz Kids Winter Camp takes the little guests onto an adventure that taps into their spirit of adventure. Because they are the hero, children develop an unprecedented sense of curiosity and pride as they solve a series of enigmas and lead their team to victory! Every day, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., including four activities, lunch, and a surprise gift!  Priced at RMB688 net per day (only for children aged 4 to 10).

  • Gratitude

Because Chinese New Year is blessed with indelible family memories and a feeling of being loved, The Ritz-Carlton Sanya, Yalong Bay encourages all its guests to give in a sense of gratitude, with the purchase of Dundun Spring Festival limited edition. This furry friend is sure to draw a smile to every child’s face, while all the profits will be given to The Bright Connection, a charity center that supports the rehabilitation therapy, training and education resources for disabled children suffering from cerebral palsy or infantile autism.
