Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Not being able to travel abroad, it was decided to spend a holiday at Sanya. Being a Marriott Bonvoy Member, first choice was St. Regis Yalong Bay. Pre-arrival I’ve received an email from my Butler asking my preferences and anything that they could do to enhance my stay. Isn’t it wonderful? Hotel is overwhelming you on the arrival, beautifully decorated spacious lobby, sea view and massive green area gives you the feeling understanding of “here we go, holidays started!”. We’ve been invited to seat down during check-in, which is extremely convenient after the flight and the heat you just come out from. After all the details were confirmed, our vacation been thoughtfully orchestrated by The St. Regis Team. We’ve been guided to the room, where butler explained us anything we might need and look for. We’ve booked Marina View, facing the sunset and green mountains. The view is outstanding! Our breakfast has been appointed at Driftwood with mini buffet and hot dish selection from the menu. You can start your day with Champagne and foie gras sitting at the terrace and watching peacocks. Hotel has several pools but we ignored it and went directly to the white-sanded private beach of the hotel. Although the swimming area is limited (Should be regulated by law as I’ve seen it everywhere in Sanya) it’s large enough to feel the depth and have a good swim. Staff service was warm and we felt in good hands, especially would like to mention Mr Frank, Lin Liu, Sandra and Driftwood team to make our stay fabulous!

It was overall a nice experience.

We travelled to Sanya to escape winter from Shanghai and we chose St Regis because of the brand’s reputation.

Arrival was great with a grand entrance overlooking the mountain/marina. Check in was smooth and we were upgraded to Ocean (partial) View as Elite Member.

We were greeted by Akim, the Butler/Concierge who took care of our stay all through out which was amazing! He was professional and even assisted us beyond our expectations.

Cons though was that we booked a package that included free minibar but the minibar was only sodas (in cans), and nothing else. The food at the Driftwood was below our expectations, the only item we liked was the Driftwood Salad. However, the service there was impeccable and staffs were very attentive.

The size of the room was large and the layout was convenient.The luxury feeling was enchanted by the marble features.

The beach had suffered a natural damage thus was not very appealing to us. Nonetheless we had been compensated by the two pools (one of which is heated) with the view overlooking the ocean! One more plus was the nice mermaid show, clever idea!

We had a great time at this beautiful hotel and were impressed with the service provided. Special thanks to Akim and his professional attitude who took good care of all our requests and always provided support and help on time.
I have previously stayed in many hotels at Yalong Bay and must say that it was the best experience I ever had in Sanya, I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.

We enjoined the breakfast as it always had good choice and variety for Western and local culinary preferences. I also enjoyed to evening staying at the SPA, they have great amenities and atmosphere out there.

The only disappointment was the beach, it does not make sense to me the access to which through the stairs is blocked and you have to go all the way around. I would prefer to stay on the beach and this is one of the reasons many people visit Sanya actually. It seems that nobody takes care of the cleanliness and convenience of guests at the sea. It’s not fun to stay at the sun lounger as they are placed to high above and you have to go far around each time.

P.S. Friday night BBQ food selection with free flow of Prosecco and wine was amazing

We have literally been here for 3 or 4 hours and the resort is lovely but we have had some terrible service so far. Firstly we had to wait to check in, not offered a seat or even a glass of water just stood at the door of the check in area. Then I was asked to pay a deposit on my credit card which is far more than what we are actually paying. The room is lovely but when looking at the flip flops for men one had already been worn!! The TV has a terrible signal in both rooms and the stereo speakers don’t work. We then decided to order room service and asked for a Stella beer to be told that there was no other beers other than Heineken and one corona left!! Starting to think we have made the wrong choice? Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

Green and peaceful. Clean. Properly maintained. Service meets expectation. Nice pools - one is an infinity pool with transparent glass on one of its side. Breakfast is good.
Location is a bit remote, especially if you don’t drive, but you get peace in exchange.
The property is huge, so it can take a but of walk to reach your room (3-4 mins probably), especially if you are placed in a room at the end of one of their buildings.
Beach is clean, but not blue, not clear, and not suitable for swimming.

It’s our first experienced with St. Regis. We were very impressed with the pre- arrival service , Three days prior to our arrival, I had received a phone call from Shirley of reservation departement checking on our arrival / room requirements. Butler was assigned to us prior our arrival which amazing . Akim our butler was attentive. Our arrival was smooth , From airport pick up to check in process was smooth. We reserved The lagoon suite for our stays. The suite was spacious and they specifically decorated our suite with roses . We really appreciated it . It was very sweet gesture . The suite is slightly dated / old It’s certainly need an upgrade . The curtains and those buttons to control the lighting certainly needs to be upgraded. Come to the dining part, We had most of our dining at driftwood. The menu selections were quite limited , but the attitude of the team made our stay memorable. Special shout out to David ,Adler and Chef at Driftwood. Very professional. To David and Adler without both of you , we will not enjoy our stay at St Regis as much . The BBQ on the weekend was ok, it could be better quality .Overall our stayed was pleasant but not wow!!

Having never stayed at St Regis brand before and experienced almost all of the other Marriott brands I was interested to see if they lived up to their hype.

Well....YES

This was just a short one night stay, however I wished I could have stayed here for weeks. The hotel is located at the end of Yalong Bay, has a very private beach and away from all the other hotels

Special thanks to Akim my butler whom is a real asset to the hotel. I had the pleasure of meeting Richard the GM on several occasions, he has a wealth of experience and was a pleasure to talk to. Thanks Richard for a great stay.

I was upgraded to an amazing suite overlooking the marina. Room was oversized and had an amazing view of the marina which was very peaceful and felt like I was the only one in the resort

The hotel is on a grand scale and I believe is one of the largest in the area. The villas look amazing and hope will be able to stay in those one day soon!

I would not hesitate to stay again and this must be on your bucket list when visiting Sanya!

we had the worst experience the butler Carolina was not helpful at all .
first day the breakfast we ordered twice came twice wrong
we ordered lunch my order was caprese mozzarella sandwich they brought salmon sandwich so I had to order again.
third day the butler wasn't replying to our messages when we asked for breakfast she ignored.
she said the buggy car will come at 10:10 to pick up the luggage for check out the time now is 10:30 and no one come and she doesn't reply to our call.
we paid alot for the worst experience.
highly not reccommended.
lastly the buggy came with wet seats and not enough space for the family.

This stay was a true roller coaster, booking and airport pickup perfect, check in decent but a bit slow, room very good but not excellent but the patio with pool access is amazing and makes up for the wear and tear in the room.

Relaxing by the pool, pool bar no staff, very annoying, ordering from restaurant no sprite and no Diet Coke, did I check in at the wrong hotel? Sprite and Diet Coke should be fairly standard at a category 6 hotel I think.

But now to the good parts, at check in we were greeted by our butler Akim, he handled everything for us, luggage etc got us settled in, later I was relaxing on the beach and simply messaging him to help with some champagne and in less than 10 minutes we had an ice bucket with lovely champagne and glasses delivered to the beach, the breakfast is good as well.

The driftwood reasturant has great food and David really makes you feel at home and is so helpful

But again make no mistake our butler Akim is what makes this a 4 star rating otherwise it would have been a 3 but his amazing care and service made our stay amazing and I hope the hotel will get some of the basics right for next time then it will be a 5 for sure

Stayed here with my family for two days. Bob Shi, the loyalty manager took care of me during my whole stay, it was a great pleasure because he assisted me with basically everything including dinner, bubble shower, asking me about experience and excursion when during his off working time. This hotel is located in a quite area in Yalong Bay so we can enjoy the best beach in Sanya but have enough privacy at the same time. Bar and pool has amazing views and the room is one of the newest in Yalong. 40mins to 30mins driving from Sanya city, can’t wait to stay again!
