Atlantis Sanya Resort Will Be A Modern Re-Interpretation of the Myth of Atlantis

You may remember from a previous post that Sol Kertzner will bring the Atlantis Resort concept to China in a new $1.5B project. Now, we have some great concept-arts for this resort which is set to become a new landmark in China and will introduce the fun, interactive entertainment experiences at the heart of the Atlantis philosophy.

But this new Atlantis will have a very different look than the one we know in the Bahamas or in Dubai as the architectural design for this Atlantis Sanya destination re-interprets the myth of Atlantis on China's Hainan Island, along the Haitang Bay National Coast, overlooking the South China Sea.

Expected to open  in 2016, the 153 acres luxury resort will offer guests interactive, larger-than-life experiences including the Aquaventure Waterpark, lagoons, fresh and salt water pools, marine and educational exhibits, entertainment, spa treatments, world-class dining experiences and luxurious accommodations with 1300 rooms on 2.55 million sq. ft. ( not including the water park).

The new design for Atlantis Sanya has been inspired by the local culture as well as the Atlantis brand hallmarks of ocean and marine life. The curvilinear design of the two giant steel fins creates a beacon that appears to emerge from the horizon. The design team is collaborating with Fosun International Limited, the leading non-state owned enterprise in China, and Kerzner International Holdings Limited, renowned international developer and operator of destination resorts. It will be the first Atlantis resort in China.

Have a look at the great concept-arts of its design coming from the HOK website HERE.
