Luxury properties in Sanya remain attractive to buyers at home and abroad, with their resort-like lifestyle, beautiful surroundings and abundance of outdoor leisure activities.

Developed by Yalong Bay Development, the Yalong Bay Princess Palace is a stone's throw from Yalong Bay Golf Club and borders a pristine rainforest. The project occupies 370,000 square metres, 55 per cent of which is covered by lush greenery.

The project comprises separate areas for villas and apartments, complemented by a clubhouse and other amenities. Phase one features individual and semi-detached villas with Spanish and North American designs.

According to the developer, Princess Palace embraces the natural surroundings by following the contours of the original hillside. Innovative elements include the use of an outdoor courtyard in individual villas, featuring private swimming pools, gazebos and a lounging area. Palm trees and decorative rock designs are used to partition individual villas.

Most villas feature three bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. On the front of the first floor is a living room with floor-to-ceiling glass walls on three sides.

KWG Properties' Pearl Coast is in Lingshui County in the Pan-Sanya district. Pearl Coast's villas and apartment blocks are infused with the contemporary resort style of Singapore's Sentosa. All Pearl Coast's units along the expansive coastline were designed to make the most of panoramic sea views. The design team offers three different villa structures: U-shape, L-shape and enclosed, ranging from 2,120 sqft to 3,982 sqft. The apartments vary from 570 sqft to 2,873 sqft.

Outdoor activities around Pearl Coast are the main focus in the resort lifestyle espoused by KWG. The development features two private 3,000-square-metre clubhouses.

Vanke Property's Forest Park is nestled in Sanya's renowned Luobi Cave Scenic Area. According to the developer, the project promotes 'commune-style' living, featuring an international kindergarten, organic farm, multiple restaurants and cafes serving regional and international cuisines.

Leisure activities include an amphitheatre, art galleries and live venues.

The project features three parks highlighting its integration of the landscape into the development, and preservation of the area's original ecosystem.

The apartments range from 400 sqft studios to 860 sqft two-bedroom units.

The lake-view villa apartments feature 1,240 sqft units on the lower floor with private courtyards and 1,474 sqft units on the upper floor.
