Fodor's Expert Review Banyan Tree Spa
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
The Shanghai branch was China's first outpost of this ultraluxurious spa chain. It occupies the third floor of the Westin Shanghai. The spa's 13 chambers as well as its treatments are designed to reflect wu sing, the five elemental energies of Chinese philosophy: earth, gold, water, wood, and fire. Relax and choose from a menu of massages, facials, body scrubs, or indulgent packages that combine all three.
