Hilton Wenchang: A relaxed resort to view a rocket launch

    WITNESSING a rocket launch, seeing its gorgeous ignition, feeling the ground shake and being stirred by the roar of its engines is a magical experience. Plus, visiting a satellite launch center would be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

    If you happen to visit Wenchang City, Hainan Province around September and October when the Long March 5 rocket will be launched, you can have the lucky opportunity to witness the launch on your balcony in Hilton Wenchang.

    The hotel is 3 kilometers from the Wenchang Satellite Launch Center, China’s fourth and southernmost space vehicle launch facility. This proximity means that you will have great visibility for rocket launches either from the hotel balcony or its beach.

    Hilton Wenchang, the first international hospitality brand in Wenchang, is nestled in the Tongguling International Eco-Tourism Area within the tranquil and beautiful landscape in the northeast of Hainan Province. Situated in easy access to the Haikou Meilan International Airport and Wenchang city center, Hilton Wenchang is embraced by the breathtaking Qishui Bay over clean beaches and an array of spectacular offshore coral reefs.

    No matter whether you are resting in your seaview room, pool villa or the lobby bar, you can feel invigorating ocean breezes and enjoy the pure vacation paradise well away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

    Apart from its elegantly decorated and stylish seaview rooms, suites and the presidential suite, the hotel has seven unique pool villas. Each villa (185 square meters) has two bedrooms and a private outdoor swimming pool with the stunning seaview of Qishui Bay. The villa is an ideal place for young people to hold weekend parties or family gatherings.

    The hotel has a tropical, Southeast Asian style and its nautical-themed decor makes full use of natural elements to highlight the scenic tropical setting. At the lobby bar in Tonggu Lounge, you can relax and have drinks with friends at a sunken recreation area while enjoying a magnificent outdoor garden and seaview.

    Whenever you arrive at the hotel after an exhausted journey, you can order Chinese, Southeast Asian or international dishes at Open, a dynamic all-day restaurant at the hotel. Don’t forget to try Wenchang chicken and Qingbuliang, two typical Hainan dishes.

    Wenchang chicken is known throughout Hainan and is also popular elsewhere in Southeast Asian countries. The most traditional way to prepare Wenchang chicken is to immerse the chicken in near-boiling water and cook to preserve its tenderness. It is then eaten by dipping the pieces in a mixture of spices including chopped ginger and salt. The skin of Wenchang chicken is typically yellow with an oily appearance.

    In humid and hot Hainan, Qingbuliang is an incredibly refreshing dessert. This popular traditional Hainan dessert is made up of assorted boiled beans and diced fresh tropical fruits in ice-cold coconut milk. You can find it served in a bowl on any street in Hainan, but Hilton Wenchang serves it in a coconut shell, which highlights the flavor of fresh and sweet coconut. The hotel also adds some chewy pasta among the beans and juicy fruits.

    In addition, you can also try other Hainanese and Cantonese dishes at the hotel’s Haitian Chinese Restaurant as well as Italian cuisine at Bocca, which is equipped with wooden pizza ovens. Sundae near the pool is inspired by 1950s American ice-cream parlors and reinvents that classic experience with a wide selection of milkshakes, coffees, cold drinks, alcohol and snacks.

    Apart from enjoying a variety of exciting water sports, or relaxing on the soft beach in the hotel, you can also explore Wenchang, the dynamic city which is home to an extensive coconut plantation and historical sites.

    The hotel is located in Longlou Township, where you can visit the tranquil Tonggu Ridge and enjoy a view of the sea at its peak. In addition, Hilton Wenchang is near Dongjiao Coconut Theme Park in Dongjiao Township and the mangrove landscapes of Bamen Bay.

    Golf courses and historical monuments such as Soong’s Ancestral Residence in Changsa Township are also easily accessible.

    Finally, visit the Confucian Temple in downtown Wenchang, one of the best preserved examples of ancient architecture in Hainan, and enjoy easy access to the vibrant city where you can find street food, bars and nightlife.

    How to get to Hilton

    Wenchang from SZ

    Fly to Haikou Meilan International Airport. Inside the airport, take a train to Wenchang and the journey is only 20 minutes. Then at the Wenchang Railway Station, get on Hilton Wenchang’s free shuttle bus. You can also drive for 50 minutes from Haikou Meilan International Airport to the hotel.
