    Where to stay in Sanya

    A popular beach resort, Sanya's premier places to stay all crowd as close to the beach as possible. Luxury hotels with abundant grounds, large pools, and fine-dining restaurants can be found on the main beach road, along with a scattered few standard options. Budget-conscious travelers will be relieved to find a good number of small inns and hotels located in the alleys and side streets just back from the main beach road. Take a look around the coastline for a number of clusters of upmarket hotels in more secluded bays, usually occupying large plots by the sea.
