SANYA, China, April 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- China, April 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The MGM Grand Sanya proved to be the presidents' choice by successfully hosting Myanmar president Mr. U Thein Sein, Peruvian president Mr. Ollanta Humala Tasso, Zambian president Mr. Michael Chilufya Sata, Finnish president Mr. Sauli Niinisto, President of the Council of the Nation of Algeria Mr. Abdelkader Bensalah, and Chairman of The State Great Hural of Mongolia Mr. Zandaakhuu Enkhbold, who all participated the Boao Forum for Asia Annual Conference 2013, making it the hotel that received the most presidents and state leaders in Sanya during the Forum. The impeccable facilities and state of the art services offered by the hotel were highly regarded by the visiting dignitaries.
MGM Grand Sanya, Diaoyutai MGM Hospitality's first luxury resort in mainland China, is inspired by the stylish vibrancy of MGM hotels in Las Vegas and the supreme service philosophy from Diaoyutai State Guesthouse. Embodying the MGM Grand brand essence of "Energy, Excitement and Entertainment" on one hand, the hotel also endeavors to create a brand new destination for visiting foreign heads of state and government leaders to the island with its unparalleled services.
"We're very honored and proud to have hosted 6 state leaders during the Forum, which broke the record of Sanya for receiving the most heads of state in a single hotel," said Mr. Yaning Liu, Deputy General Manager of Diaoyutai MGM Hospitality. "This accomplishment is a credit to our strategy of integrating brand advantages of parent companies and creating unique experiences."
As the highest standard service venue for hosting foreign heads of state, Diaoyutai State Guesthouse has accommodated more than 1,220 national leaders during its 50 years of operation and has accumulated priceless experience in receiving important guests. MGM Resorts International, one of the world's leading luxury hotel management groups, have also received many state leaders, including president Bush, both the older and the younger, president Clinton, president Obama and others.
During their stay, the delegation members enjoyed a variety of dining experiences including a rich buffet selection in Haitang, authentic western cuisine in Neera and classic Chinese gourmet options in Silk. Each guest was also greeted with their national flower, national flag sculpted in chocolate, and a souvenir photo taken in the hotel. Impressed by the exquisite combination of MGM's dynamic vitality and Diaoyutai's graceful service, the guests expressed their gratitude to the hotel by leaving autographs as mementos. The presidents of Burma, Peru and the Council of the Nation of Algeria also extended their appreciation in person to the serving staff and butlers by shaking hands and taking photos together.
"At MGM Grand Sanya, we imported the exclusive entertainment essence of the MGM Grand brand and mixed it with the peerless experience of state banquets and legendary service presented by Diaoyutai State Guesthouse. Such an innovative integration of these two seemingly contrasting lifestyles makes our resort stand out among fierce competition," said Mr. Yaning Liu.
