That feeling of being cocooned in an atmosphere of tranquility is something every spa aspires to offer, but few perfect. The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Beijing, however, has enlisted the very structure of its building to impart a luxuriant atmosphere of pure escape. A lush inner Tea Garden rests below a glass atrium an astonishing 23 floors above. The sun pours down, but the kinetic buzz of Beijing feels a world away, leaving patrons free to sip tea, unwind and contemplate a multifaceted program of wellness treatments.

The spa’s signature duel east-west philosophy allies French skincare brand Biologique Recherche with the onsite expertise of Dr. Lan Jirui, a leading expert on traditional Chinese medicine. In practice, it’s a smart approach that combines both wellness and renewal rituals, drawing upon thousands of years of Chinese holistic wisdom — Dr. Lan is available for consultations and treatments such as acupressure and therapeutic massage — with the very latest in skincare technology.

Eleven treatment rooms include two VIP double suites with their own steam showers and tubs, four double treatment rooms and five singles, and the spa has its own sunlit pool and whirlpool with city views.
