Marriott has added a new luxury hotel with its own 5 acre ocean to their EDITION chain. The Sanya EDITION on Hainan Island, China looks amazing!

Why deal with crowds and leaving the resort when the ocean can come to you — pumped in from the nearby South China Sea. Every room has an ocean view and there are 17 villas with private pools and gardens for those wanting a little more privacy.

It also features art galleries, a 12 room spa AND bumper cars among other activities.a purple bumper car in a room with a colorful wall

And it’s affordable. Rooms throughout the summer are pricing as low as ~$120USD for ocean views and a balcony. It is not a good use of Marriott Rewards points though…as a category 8, nights start at 40,000 points.

  1. I must admit that I’ve never seen bumper cars at a hotel. The most interesting perk was just a cotton candy station for breakfast in Lombok. As to the ocean, I’d say that they’re stretching hyperbole by a good bit. Even Disney World’s lake, which is dozens of times larger, is still billed as a lagoon. I’ll give them props for ambition, though.
