Looking for quiet beachfront 2 bedroom villa in Sanya for 2 adults and 2 children for Sept 28-Oct 5, flying from Shanghai. We prefer to avoid large, busy resorts, and simply want to relax and swim in the ocean and pool, in bungalow-type environment like in Thailand or Vietnam, with great food. Any recommendations?

I think the hotels in Yalong Bay area may meet your requirement, as the hotels there are connect with beach. The suggested hotels are the Ritz Carlton, Horizon Resort, Horizon Resort. They are luxurious hotels in that area and cost from US$130-US$300. If they are over your budget, please search more from Hotel Booking page on our web site.
