The Chinese yachting market is entering a new phase of development with a growing demand from sophisticated customers from all over the country. The development of new ports and facilities has opened up new avenues for this growing market.

The Sanya Yalong Bay Yacht Club marina has 130 berths for superyachts up to 100m, with direct access to the Bay and the China Sea. The St. Regis Hotel is integrated within the resort, and the Ritz-Carlton, the MGM and other international 5-star brands are located nearby.
