Hainan, China – August 08, 2014 – Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc.

Offering sweeping sea views of the sparkling South China Sea, The Westin Blue Bay Resort is located at the heart of Blue Bay Town in Qingshui Bay, a prestigious resort community with white sand beaches and a stunning, art-shaped coastline bisected by sandstone rock formations. The community’s world-class resort facilities include the 18-hole championship Jian Lake Blue Bay golf course, a golf club, commercial center and upscale properties.
