The Four Seasons Hotel in Beijing offers a spa which uses some of the most traditional forms of Chinese well being with some of the most advanced spa therapies.
BEIJING- The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Beijing combines a philosophy of absolute individuality with some of the world’s most clinically advanced therapies to offer personalised renewal for all.
In a first for the city, The Spa fuses indigenous Chinese ingredients and time-honoured traditions with cutting edge techniques and technology to present treatments as decadent and effective as any available in the world today. Combined with facilities extending from a magical Tea Garden to superlative wet wellness areas, the end result is a luxurious enclave of renewal in China’s cultural heart.
At the heart of this multi-faceted approach to customised wellness and vitality lies internationally acclaimed French skincare brand, Biologique Recherche, and the renowned expertise of Dr. Lan Jirui – one of Beijing’s leading authorities on Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Spa Director Fay Sirisopa explains: “In keeping with the highly personalised approach of our Hotel, we wanted to create a space where guests come for the ultimate in luxurious renewal: somewhere where they know they are receiving a service tailored exclusively for them. Working with a brand like Biologique Recherche has allowed us to customise all of our treatments to individual skin care needs, while Dr. Lan’s intuitive diagnostic ability and fusion of medicinal practices from East and West adds a holistic dimension rarely encountered in a luxury spa.”
In addition to its Signature Renewal Treatments and Traditional Chinese Medicine consultations and treatments, The Spa is the first in the city to offer unique Biologique Recherche Facials and Body Treatments – a combination of astoundingly effective and personally tailored serums and complexes in conjunction with bioelectronic therapies to stimulate, lift and sculpt cells and muscles.
Located on the 6th floor, The Spa’s eleven cocooning treatment rooms showcase sophisticated Chinese design elements, arranged around a lush inner Tea Garden that soars 23 floors skywards to a sun-lit glass atrium. Two expansive double VIP treatment rooms with steam shower and bathtubs combine with four opulent double treatment rooms and five single treatment rooms in an atmosphere designed to promote positive energy and relaxation.
The Spa also has its own sunlit pool and whirlpool with cityscape views, while separate men’s and women’s wet wellness areas – each equipped with sauna, steam room, deluxe whirlpool and ice fountain – provide a welcoming respite from the demands of modern urban life. The Spa also offers a range of Kids’ Mini Treatments as well as specially tailored bridal and party packages.
Four Seasons Hotel Beijing is the third Four Seasons hotel to open in China in 2012, following the openings of Four Seasons Hotel Guangzhou in July and Four Seasons Hotel Pudong, Shanghai. The brand’s growing portfolio in the country already includes Four Seasons Hotel Shanghai, Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong, Four Seasons Hotel Macao Cotai Strip and Four Seasons Hotel Hangzhou at West Lake, with a dozen additional projects currently in advanced stages of development.
