What: Nine treatment rooms in wood-beamed huts at the Amanfayun Resort. The treatment list is short and inspired by traditional Chinese healing (no facials). Bath House rooms accommodate two and include deep circular wooden tubs.
The look: Zen minimalism meets Chinese apothecary. The reception area has gray stone floors and modernist renderings of Ming dynasty armchairs; treatment rooms have clean lines and warm paper shades.
Who goes: The resort's well-heeled guests, half of whom are weekending Shanghainese.
The treatment: The 90-minute Signature Herbal Therapeutic Massage begins with a full-body pat down with heated herb-filled sachets and progresses to a deep massage. You'll feel warmed to the bone for hours after.
P.S.: The one downside is the staff's lack of English (massages, $129).
