The hotel will comprise 120 tropical-style villas, each with its won plunge pool, and another 80 suites in a low-rise setting. The Grand Mercure Yalong Bay, Sanya also will include a spa and wellness center, a swimming pool, a fitness center, a multipurpose meeting area, two restaurants and two bars. The hotel is scheduled to open in late 2007, and will be Accor's third hotel in Hainan, joining the Sofitel Boa and the soon-to-open Sofitel Fizi Hainan. Visit [www.accor.com].
