Located within The Ritz-Carlton, Sanya in China’s picturesque Yalong Bay National Resort area, ESPA at The Ritz-Carlton, Sanya is a massive 30,000-square-foot luxury spa set in a beautifully conceived space that replicates the layout and architectural touchstones of a traditional Beijing-style courtyard dwelling. Here, open-air corridors and lush tropical greenery are fanned by soft breezes from the South China Sea, while indoors a spare, contemporary Asian design is highlighted by dark wood appointments, polished stone surfaces and a soothing cream color palette.
Pristine, gender-separated wet areas include a sauna, jade steam room and outdoor vitality pool, while a relaxation lounge and separate, shared tea lounge with refreshments and complimentary Wi-Fi access are quiet, comfortable spots to relax before and after your treatments. The spa has a total of 24 private rooms and an impressive list of treatments that includes hot volcanic stone massages, aromatherapy and detoxifying facials, all delivered by expert therapists armed with luxurious ESPA skincare products. Access to a state-of-the-art fitness center is also available, and don’t forget about Mood, a secluded café located within the spa that’s ideal for a post-treatment snack or fruit shake.
