Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Hangzhou at West Lake, Hangzhou, China
What: A destination spa at this Four Seasons property based on the concept of an emperor's bathhouse.
The look: A modern take on a Chinese palace, with multiroom treatment areas (which guests reach by crossing an indoor brook), private dressing rooms, huge bathtubs, and atmospheric lighting.
Who goes: Well-heeled Shanghainese and expats craving a break from Asia's capitals.
The treatment: The head-to-toe Imperial Consorts' and Concubines' Perfumed-Water Rituals involves a bath and a massage, leaving you fragrant and super-relaxed.
P.S.: Don't miss the indoor pool, with its pearl and gold leaf ceiling.
