The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company is set to open its first golf resort in Haikou on Hainan Island in China. The Ritz-Carlton, Mission Hills will be developed by the Mission Hills Group and managed by The Ritz-Carlton. It is scheduled to open in late 2015.
The Haikou Mission Hills Golf Club project will include 10 golf courses and will be the largest public golf complex in the world. Other features include 201 rooms, a club house, restaurants, bars, tennis courts, swimming pools, a recreation pavilion and 4,855 square feet of convention and meeting spaces.
In Nov 2011, the Mission Hills Group and Marriott International entered into a partnership to manage new Ritz-Carlton and Renaissance Hotels at Mission Hills in Hainan. Both these hotels were slated to open in fourth quarter 2013 but are now set for a 2015 opening.
