Ever-so-sophisticated ESPA has built its reputation on pairing the Peninsula’s trademark classic luxury with tasteful nods to the local spa culture. In Beijing, this means that all massages and treatments begin with a traditional Chinese foot bath, while the dark woods, intricate carvings, and delicate silk cushions in the 12 plush treatment rooms evoke imperial-style luxury. Complimentary amenities include a “thermal suite” with sauna, steam room, and massage showers; a relaxation room with ultra-soft beds and down quilts; and an Asian tea room serving healthy spa bites and restorative juices and teas.

WHY WE LIKE IT
They’ve got the full experience. At ESPA, it’s not just about the treatments (though those are lovely)—it’s the luxe add-ons, like the cushy relaxation room, the high-tech thermal suite, the full fitness center and glass-encased pool, and the delicate spa bites at the Asian tea lounge, that really wow. Don’t just pop in for a quickie massage; come for an afternoon of luxuriating.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
Hotel guests are asked to wear their robes and slippers from their room to the spa...seems a little cheeky to us. At a spot this swank, dedicated spa robes and slippers should be provided.
GOOD TO KNOW
Guests are advised to arrive an hour before treatment so that they can take full advantage of the facilities. No mobile phones or other handheld devices are allowed in the common areas or treatment rooms. Appointments can be booked over the phone or through the website; 24-hour notice is required for cancellations or 50% of the treatment price will be charged. A standard 15% service charge is added for all services. Must be at least 16 years old to use the spa facilities. ESPA is a global operator of luxurious spas.
