The treatment rooms at The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Hangzhou at West Lake take inspiration from ancient Chinese palaces. Enter the room through a traditional round door that leads to a personal foyer and, once inside, you can change, shower and make use of the steam room. Each of the nine treatment rooms can accommodate couples and has its own shower and steam room. Some also include sunken tubs. Sitting on the grounds of Four Seasons Hotel Hangzhou at West Lake, The Spa at Four Seasons Hangzhou blends traditional Chinese and Balinese design. Dark wood combines with elements of feng shui, but there are also contemporary flourishes, like a neon pink light that glows through the wall next to a bathtub.

All of the treatments at the Hangzhou spa were designed exclusively for the hotel. One such servie is the Dragon Well Tea and Jade Spring Ritual, which includes a soak in the essence of 60,000 tea leaves — the amount needed to produce one kilo (or two pounds) of the longjing tea for which the West Lake area is famous. After the bath is a tea and black stone foot soak, followed by a tea and spring blossom body scrub and a tea wrap and tea oil massage. It’s a treatment fit for royalty.
