The newest member to Starwood's Luxury Collection has been unveiled, this time on the island of Hainan in southern China. Granted, it's probably being overshadowed by the new Sheraton Macao, Starwood's largest property to date, but still. For something a little more personal and upscale, the Royal Begonia is a pretty safe bet.

The 142-room property is built on a stunning quarter-mile stretch of beach on Haitang Bay, located on the southeastern tip of the island.

Guest rooms offer custom-designed furniture, there's an art gallery showcasing traditional and modern Chinese art, a cigar lounge, a Spanish wine and cocktail bar, and the hotel will even arrange special outings to local destinations in the surrounding bay, like the "floating restaurant" on nearby Coconut Island, which specializes in traditional Hainanese seafood dishes.
