    Construction fly over video - July 2016

    Here's a little fly over video I shot this morning by drone of the current state of construction. Seems like quite a way to go still for an October 2017 opening. I have noticed construction is going on around the clock at the moment.

    Interesting - I wonder if they are including the dolphin tanks in with the number of gallons

    I heard 47,000 tons of water for the aquarium which equates to 12.4 million gallons or 48,872,000 liters. So if this is correct it sounds like it will be the biggest. However, I don't know if they mean all of the exhibits will equal this number or if this is one single tank. Either way it is a lot!

    Atlantis Resort Sanya will be opening in October 2017 and will feature:
    five underwater suites, the world's largest natural seawater aquarium, natural seawater dolphin bay and 12 international restaurants with different themes
    When it says "world's largest natural seawater aquarium" does that mean larger that Chimelong Ocean Kingdom's whale shark tank?

    Regarding the
    807 units of sea view apartments and 197 units of ocean villas
    from here: http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/bizchina/2016-05/23/content_25425510.htm

    These are newer renderings of what those will look like:




    As you can also see in the satellite view, the ocean villas are already being constructed.

    A few new details about the project:

    Chinese conglomerate Fosun Group will invest some 11 billion yuan ($1.68 billion) in a large, high-end tourism property project in Sanya, South China's Hainan province, sina.com.cn reported on Sunday.
    The 530,000-square-meter Sanya Altantis, expected to open in 2017, will offer services ranging from hotel, dining, shopping to entertainment, exhibition and marine culture experience.

    "There will be 60,000 marine life in the aquarium, 16 themed restaurants, and five deep sea suits, the only ones in Greater China, " said QianJiannong, vice-president of the Fosun Group and president of Fosun Tourism and Business Group.

    "The salable real estate includes 807 units of sea view apartments and 197 units of ocean villas," he added.

    The Sanya Altantis, located in Haitang Bay, involves much higher investment than the world's two other Altantis hotels respectively in Bahamas and Dubai, according to Qian.

    The EBIT (earnings before interest and tax) of Altantis in Dubai basically exceeded those of nearly 100 chain hotel brands in Europe, he noted.

    The Sanya project is expected to have an annual business turnover of around $600 million, while business turnover for top-notch hotels in China stands around 600 million yuan, said Cao Minglong, head of the project's operator.

    So the angle and glare on this new Google Earth image is not great but you can see the top left of the site is really starting to take shape and you can see the tower rising from the foundations as seen in the site photos.




    You can see the pools as seen in the concept art....
