Rated 5 out of 5 by Ham67 A must stay in China!!!
The Design of this hotel was amazing. From the building itself, which seemed to be designed to allow breezes to flow through the structure, to the way the resort itself seemed to blend into the unique environment. The hotel itself seemed to be a sleeker more modern version of the Westin. The hotel , combined with the exceptional service I received from the General manger and his team, made for an exceptional stay! This is a new property and is still in the final stages of completion and based on my experience the GM and his team should prepare them selves for loads of success!! He and his team should be proud of what they are achieving and I am sure the word will quickly spread about this exceptional resort/hotel!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SKinChina Exceeded my expectations
Visited the Westin Blue Bay resort just after the Chinese National Holiday week and had a fantastic experience.
I was greeted by name at check. Sincere thanks to the front desk staff (Sarah i think) who checked me in, really appreciated her friendly and professional attitude. She even waited for me outside the restaurant after dinner as I had forgotten to provide her with a document during check in.
The design of the room is very modern and sleek. The best features has to be the huge washroom, which is separated by sliding doors with both a soaker tub and rain forest shower, and the large balcony which had a large lounge sofa which I ended up falling asleep in as the weather was just right and the ocean breeze kept you cool.
Quality of Sleep:
The beds were very comfortable as one would expect at a Westin and I had no trouble falling asleep. I woke up quite early during my stay. With the construction that is going on (I was told the spa and villas are still under construction until November), it may be difficult to sleep in.
While a few of the facilities are still under construction. I really enjoyed the pool and the beach front which was very quiet during my stay. On multiple occasions I was the only one in a very large pool. The beach felt like a natural beach with plenty of sea shells and I even managed to find a hermit crab.
Food & Beverage:
I had the opportunity to try out every restaurant/bar at the hotel, I even went up to the not yet opened MIX bar. I found the food at international restaurant Seasonal Tastes the best, plus the prices were reasonable for a resort hotel. The restaurant even gave me extra ice cream for dessert. All in all, I was very happy with the food and service at the hotel restaurants.
The only real disappointment I had was the cocktails at the lobby bar. I tried a margarita which was not on the menu and for good reason (tastes a bit like sea water) and a blueberry mojito which actually tasted quite nice (and very sweet) but did not have nearly enough rum. I ended up chasing it down with a couple of beers, of which there is a good selection of international brands.
This is probably the part that impressed me most about the Westin Blue Bay Resort. All the staff were friendly and would really try to make you feel like a valued guest, it seemed like everyone knew me by name. Keep in mind that not all the staff spoke English, so they might have to ask someone else to help you, regardless of that, any requests that I had was quickly fulfilled. The front desk manager Ms. Li came to ask about my stay and to send me off when I was checking out which I thought was a nice personal touch.
Finally, we had requested a shuttle to take us to the Sanya International Airport, but since we were the only clients leaving at that time, the hotel provided us with a private driver and vehicle to transport us to the airport instead. This was just one more example of the service that made my stay at the resort a thoroughly enjoyable one from start to finish.
I will definitely be back at the resort, hopefully my travels brings me back sooner rather than later.
