Royal Begonia, A Luxury Collection Resort, Sanya, China

Presidential Villa

If you prefer your beach views with a regal touch, Royal Begonia’s Presidential Villa has you covered. The red-themed decor references the walls of China’s Forbidden City, and is paired with smooth marble details, Persian rugs and chandeliers. The three-bedroom, four-bathroom villa has a 10-person dining room and kitchen should you want to throw a dinner party (there’s butler service too). Venture outside to enjoy views of the South China Sea from the 2,045-sq-ft private pool and Jacuzzi, or stroll down to the beach — the villa has private access. Our favorite feature is the spa pavilion at the end of the pool — enjoy a soothing massage surrounded by lush foliage.

From $9,000 per night. Contact Daniel Meier, hotel manager,, +86 898 388 599 99,
