The predecessor of SanVa Hospedaria was a private clubhouse serving only the political elites and the high society of that time since 1870's. Until later when the Mainland China was in turmoil during the war period in 1930's, the private clubhouse was being transformed into a guesthouse open to public to meet the increasing accommodation demand for people from the mainland to seek refuge in Macau. The former guesthouse advanced onto SanVa Hospedaria at present and marking SanVa as one of the oldest existing guesthouse in Macau.
The property's original "façade" and most of the traditional Southern China architectural features are largely preserved.
