Sanya Happy East Coast
OCT Sanya Happy East Coast is a business destination for all visitors who want to get close to nature and is committed to creating a new landmark in Hainan Free Trade Port, the Sanya Central Business District (CBD), and the East Coast Headquarters Economic Zone.
The East Coast Wetland Park in the north is just a road away, like a backyard of one’s own. The design fully demonstrates the characteristics of Sanya’s leisure and vacation, as well as the advantages of the special location of the site: creating a place for the organic transition between the city and nature. The flowing architecture is a natural embellishment, and visitors stroll through the jungle. The warm and subtle architectural language originates from Hainan’s unique cultural context. Whether it’s the arcade along the street, the rich and natural landscapes, or the three-dimensional gardens, people move around and feel the charm of Sanya and nature everywhere. The lush and diverse landscape connects and covers the entire project. Trees shield the harsh tropical sun, and the gentle breeze from the South China Sea blows, and the blooming flowers emit a pleasant fragrance. It will leave a lasting impression on every guest on the trail, creating a pleasant and relaxed vacation environment.
