Xinbu Island is a newly developed area in the northeastern part of Haikou city, the capital of China's Hainan province. This is also the location of AccorHotels' brand new Novotel Haikou Xinbudao. 

The 141-room Novotel Haikou Xinbudao is a 40-minute drive from Haikou Meilan International Airport. For those who prefer to travel by land, the hotel is also 90 minutes from Sanya via the newly opened high-speed train. These transportation links make sense too, considering the up-and-coming plans in the province. "As the first Novotel in Hainan province and the brand's 27th hotel in Greater China, Novotel Haikou Xinbudao is opening at the right time when Haikou is set for a starring role in recently-announced plans for the island's transformation into China's largest free-trade zone, which will fuel Hainan's development and bring substantial new business opportunities," said Gary Rosen, chairman and COO, AccorHotels Greater China.

In terms of meeting facilities, Novotel Haikou Xinbudao has a 800sqm pillar-less ballroom, which can hold up to 600 guests. Naturally, the hotel also comes with an array of F&B options on top of a fitness centre, kids' club, an outdoor swimming pool and tennis court.
