6 Treatment Rooms

Beauty product addicts will want to make a beeline for Four Seasons Hotel Pudong, Shanghai’s Flare Spa. Flare has the honor of being the only Guerlain-branded spa in China; all of the spa’s products come from the respected French perfume house.

The boutique spa’s well-curated treatment list includes facials, massages, nail treatments using Guerlain polish, and a short list of services just for men, such as the manly License to Thrill package, a manicure and pedicure paired with a shaken — not stirred — martini. The six-room spa also offers a nail salon and an Guerlain makeup artist.

Forgoing traditional Balinese décor, which calls for dark wood and low lighting, Flare goes fully contemporary, with futuristic all-white rooms whose windows let in a flood of sunlight but have shades that can be pulled down for coverage. The two luxurious VIP spa suites include their own whirlpools and rainforest showers for couples, and everyone can use the saunas and ice fountains in the separate male and female spa zones. Spa visitors should be sure to take advantage of Four Seasons Hotel Pudong, Shanghai’s 24-hour state-of-the-art fitness center, hot tub and jade-tile infinity pool with sweeping views. The hotel has a convenient poolside menu from which spa-goers and swimmers can order drinks and dishes like a Greek salad with feta, watermelon and olives and fried rice vermicelli with beef, as well as desserts.
