The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Guangzhou uses a mix of styles, both European and Asian. Crystal chandeliers hang over the marble-topped, mirror-paneled reception desk. The salmon hued locker room leads to wet areas with mosaic floors and iridescent tiling which, along with the stone benches in the steam bath, have a distinctly Mediterranean tone. The relaxation lounge is furnished with claw-footed chaise lounges whose accent pillows have a fleur-de-lis motif, for an 18th-century French feeling. The 11 treatment rooms are customized for different experiences — water treatments or Thai massage, for example — but all reflect the classic European elegance found throughout the hotel, combined with dark wood detailing and furnishings that recall dynastic China.
