Water babies take note because the wet areas are our favorite parts of Club Oasis spa, located in the Grand Hyatt Beijing. With the exception of the swimming pool — a lagoon surrounded by fake coconut palms, waterfalls, fountains and a sumptuous (if slightly gaudy) décor that includes a faux skylit ceiling with twinkling stars — all wet areas are located inside the locker room facilities. You’ll find a standard steam room, though we prefer the roomier sauna next to it for working up a sweat while lying on the wooden bench. A calming hot tub with an infinity edge is located around the corner from the sauna and is a tranquil place to unwind after a massage (though there are also whirlpool tubs adjacent to the swimming pool if you’re spa-ing with a companion of the opposite sex). Inside the locker rooms, you’ll also find six basic shower facilities for hosing down, though you might want to bring the mini bottles of shampoo and conditioner from your room unless you’re fine using a hybrid shampoo-shower gel from Lux. Note that all of the wet areas at Club Oasis are also open to hotel guests (although there are restrictions for children in the steam room and sauna), so during peak hours some of the wet areas might become crowded. On the plus side, though, if you’re staying at the hotel, you can pop in and out of the sauna and whirlpool as many times as you’d like during your trip.
