Come 2025, there will be something huge for Hello Kitty fans to look forward to – an amusement park and hotel themed after their favourite characters to open in Hainan, China. 

Branded as Sanya Hello KItty Resort, its attractions include rides, a hotel and shops centred around Hello Kitty with local elements from the Chinese region.

Construction of the 52-acre resort began last December, with its amusement park section set to open in the second half of 2024.

Overseeing developer Keyestone Group will provide updates online as the construction progresses.

In the meantime, fans can consider visiting Sanrio Puroland in Tokyo instead or book a Hello Kitty-themed staycation package at Fairmont Singapore.
