Hainan was once an island that hosted banished mandarins from the far north. It has evolved since to become one of China’s premier holiday destinations for recuperating pin-stripers with an infectious tropical frisson and a great many attractions and activities from diving to spas. It is an island that boasts longevity.Arrive by car, or by yacht, The Yalong Bay Yacht Club is next door.

Guests can pick from the inviting IRIDIUM Spa with its exotic Crystal Ice Grotto and Mineral Salt Chamber, a well-equipped Children's Club, several sun-dappled outdoor pools, tennis courts, water sports, and the beach. And within a stone’s throw, are golf courses with beckoning greens. Work up a sweat in the Exercise room or explore Yalong Bay by bicycle. After all, pedal power was the quintessential Chinese way before Volvo was acquired by Geely.
