“Good 5star, not cheap”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2010

High standard hotel, surprising as run by government although management so good you suspect a professional management company must be involved behind the scenes. Not for budget travellers, a resort but only 10mins from downtown, would say it aims for rich Chinese not international tourists. Some rooms have step-in swimming pool access, good for older kids. Seem to be a lot of conferences so you may end up rubbing shoulders with drunk delegates. Very high standard public areas, rooms very good, internet good free wi-fi, all seems in new condition, highly recommend. Located next to beach, 2 mins walk to quite cool kiteboarding centre and Thai restaurant.

Before I arrived at the hotel, I had zero expectations. But the minute I walked into the room, I was blown away by the great view from the balcony. The rooms are very well designed. My coworker and I were very pleased with the value we got. Service at the conference room was great too. The only complaint I have is there are waaaaaaay too many people during breakfast hours. Service at the restaurant was somewhat disappointing. But overall, I think this hotel makes a great choice if you go to Xiamen whether for business or pleasure.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2010

Some very good service by some was undone by disinterest from others and lack of attention to detail in tidying our room (sorry very busy today...), which was clean, spacious, well appointed and had a pool and sea view. The buffet breakfast was huge and well presented but the French restauranrt was a joke with the waitress advising organic pea soup ( packet !! ) and a Salad nicoise misdescribed and lacking 4 basic ingredients with tinned tuna not the advertised fresh variety. When we complained she said it had been prepared by the world renowned french chef, whom we asked to see ( sorry, very busy upstairs!!) and we later learnt he had left about two weeks previously. Dont like liers.......
However the price was very fair, the grounds and pool areas are lovely, the sandy beach just across the road and these may just be teething troubles in a hotel which opened last July and which should be put right I suspect, because the hotel is government owned and has a secure area for when the president stays...on that point we were amused to find our attentive hosts dropped us like hot bricks as soon as a government official or two turned up....but, then again, that`s China.
Do not be deterred ( if a business traveller ) just because the hotel is away from the business centres as taxis are amazingly cheap, readily available and quick ( too quick sometimes ). The plus side is the relaxing setting and the business centre was very helpful.
We have stayed in an international brand hotel in Xiamen previously but this is the one we will return to, hopefully by then they will have sorted out their minor problems.
Final tip, ignore the rack rates ( 4900 yuan for seaview double incl breakfast...its available on the usual websites at under £90 a night ( about 850 yuan ).

The resort is simply beautiful and bigger than life decor, high ceiling, huge doorways, lots and lots of marble.

We stayed at the main hotel, room is spacious and bed is very comfortable. Free internet in the room. The indoor pool is beautiful but you have to wear a swim hat (available from the pool attendant for 40 yuan (around US$6).

The breakfast buffet is absolutely extensive, Chinese, Western and Japanese not to mention the desserts, it almost qualifies as a dinner buffet!

It is a bit pricey in China standard but a steal comparing to what you can get in the States

It is about 20 minutes from main town, easy to get taxis which are inexpensive.

We understand the top Chinese leaders come here for vacation and meetings as well.
