Sofitel has recently announced the brand new opening of Sofitel Haikou, a stylish hotel with a touch of French flair located in the provincial capital of China’s resort paradise of Hainan Island.
This newest opening is the 23rd Sofitel Hotel open in the brand’s network across Greater China.
Sofitel Haikou’s interior design is helmed by Hong Kong-based hospitality experts CCD (Cheng Chung Design), with garden design by Singapore’s Belt Collins.
The hotel offers 209 modern guestrooms and suites ranging from 45 to 67 square meters in size.
Each well-appointed room features floor to ceiling windows with stunning sea or city views.
The chic décor includes a vibrant orange-based colour palette with smart room technology.
Featuring the signature Sofitel MyBed™, the sensory experience includes a choice of designer pillows and aromatherapy scents inspired by the locale.
Bathroom amenities feature luxury French brands Lanvin and Hermès for exquisite bath and shower experiences.
Sofitel Haikou offers six restaurants and bar.

Strategically situated in the Guomao district facing Haikou Bay, Sofitel Haikou is the latest international luxury hotel to open as a part of the city’s convergence of the authentic island flavour, and the first to be coupled with French artistic glamour.
