The interior design of Chuan Spa at The Langham, Xintiandi, Shanghai looks like the moon. You might not think so at first when you arrive at the B1 level and note the all-white space of the reception area with its white marble floors, white sofa and pale wood check-in desk. But once you’re escorted down to the B2 level, where the treatments take place, you’ll see it — the floor is a sea of white stones, with a white marble walkway hovering over it lined with candles to guide your way to the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star spa. Bare branches sprout out of the stones and help give it that out-of-this-world feeling.
