China - To provide guests with an unparalleled experience of undersea immersion, China’s new Atlantis Sanya resort deployed an array of Harman audio, video, lighting and control systems.
Located in the city of Sanya on China’s Hainan island, Atlantis Sanya is the latest Atlantis-themed resort operated by Kerzner International. The resort’s 52-story luxury hotel boasts more than 1,300 guest rooms, including extravagant underwater suites that look out into the resort’s massive Lost Chambers aquarium.
The vast Aquaventure waterpark occupies nearly 200,000sq.m and includes waterslides that pass through the aquarium, in addition to snorkelling, scuba diving and live dolphin and sea lion interactions. Other amenities include conference rooms and banquet halls for meetings and events, an upscale shopping centre and 13 restaurants and bars.
The resort deployed an array of JBL, AKG, Crown, Soundcraft and BSS audio technologies to distribute audio throughout the complex, as well as advanced AMX video systems and Martin lighting fixtures for multimedia integration and striking visuals.
“Atlantis Sanya aims to provide an unforgettable aquatic experience for guests,” says project leader at CCW, Atlantis Resorts Consultants. “To accomplish this goal, we needed high-fidelity audio and advanced multimedia systems throughout the facility, as well as the latest control systems to operate it seamlessly. Harman Professional’s world-class, scalable audio-visual systems empower the resorts to create a unique and immersive experience.”
Over 1,500 full-range JBL loudspeakers provide total coverage and clarity for background music and announcements throughout the Atlantis Sanya’s restaurants, shops and common spaces. Waterproof, weather-resistant models cover the waterpark and other outdoor areas, delivering the same full-range sound with extra protection from the elements.
Many of the hotel’s rooms and suites feature surround-sound entertainment systems with recessed JBL loudspeakers in the walls and ceilings for spacious, immersive sound. The entire integrated audio system is powered by 57 Crown DCi amplifiers, which are connected, zoned and controlled by a digital network of over 100 BSS signal processors, control panels and paging stations.
At night, Atlantis Sanya’s contemporary fin-shaped main tower is illuminated with dazzling multi-colour lighting displays. 20 Martin Exterior Projection 1000 fixtures project washes of colour, texture and sharp graphics onto the outside of the building.
